Location information for Montevideo

Introduction

Montevideo is the capital of Uruguay. The city was founded by the Spanish in 1726 in defense against the Portuguese who were stationed on the other site of the Río de la Plata (currently Brazil). The city has a beautiful historical center (Ciudad Vieja) and a magnificent boulevard (Rambla) along the Río de la Plata.

Population

The city itself has about 1.3 million inhabitants, but two million people live in the entire metropolitan area of the Uruguayan capital.

Location

Montevideo is located on Uruguay's south coast, where the Río de la Plata meets the Atlantic Ocean. The city is surrounded by beautiful beaches. The city has a humid, subtropical climate with relatively cool winters and hot summers.

Economy

The state plays an important role in the economy. Many companies are owned by the state. Montevideo's harbor plays an important role in the export of products, such as meat (beef), wool, rice and dairy products. Montevideo has long been one of the most important financial centers of South America.

Airports

Montevideo's international airport is situated fifteen kilometers east of the city center. The official name is Carrasco General Cesáreo L. Berisso International Airport. The airport is easily reachable by rental car. From the city center you take the Avenida Italia which leads to the airport. The route to the airport is clearly signposted.

Public Transport

Montevideo has an extensive network of city bus lines. From the large central bus station Tres Cruces regional busses also leave for destinations in the vicinity of the capital.

Traffic and Parking

It's not difficult to find your way around in a rental car in Montevideo. The roads and signposting are good (although some knowledge of the Spanish language helps). In the city center you have to pay for street parking. In streets without parking meters you're often approached by unofficial 'parking lot attendants'. For a few pesos they look after your car.

Also bear in mind that traffic lanes are often not indicated by lines on the road.

Hotels

Montevideo offers a large supply of accommodation. Ranging from simple guesthouses to five star hotels and everything in between. Top class hotels can be found mainly along the eastern Rambla, midrange hotels are more concentrated around the Plaza Constitución and Plaza Independencia. You can park your car for free at most hotels. We recommend booking your hotel room well in advance.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
