Advantages of renting a car
The advantages of traveling in a rented car are obvious. Mainly, the freedom to change itineraries to pleasure; manage the times without depending on planes, trains or buses schedules, as well as to take better advantage of the hours usually spent in airports, stations and terminals. If you are more than two passengers, it can even mean significant financial savings. And the possibility of discovering, from picturesque villages and stealthy trails, to hidden landscapes and regional shops is invaluable. But it is advisable to take the necessary precautions and be attentive to avoid becoming the trip into a nightmare.

One of the advantages of renting a car is to have time at every moment. For this reason, when faced with the question of how many days to hire, we recommend securing an extra day to what is strictly necessary -even when it will only be used for a few hours- since the price for one more day does not change the total cost too much and can be very beneficial. There is no minimum or maximum number of days to rent a vehicle. But there are usually promotions for weekly rentals.
5 Where yes and where not
The convenience of renting or not a car also depends on the places you want to visit, for example, if you think renting a car and being within Salta city does not make much sense, since the city is small and can be known walking. On the other hand, if you plan to go out and explore the northern landscapes, in this case renting a car is the ideal option.
