The prices in Argentina are roughly comparable to those you are used to in the U.S., but meat for example is of very good quality and cheaper than high quality meat in North America. Furthermore you pay higher prices in the touristic cities and the capital Buenos Aires. Due to the rather unstable economic situation the prices in Argentina can fluctuate strongly. We recommend that you always research the current prices before your holiday. By doing so, you can prevent unpleasant surprises. Also the rental car prices depend not only on the economic situation, but also on how far in advance you book your rental car online. As a rule, the earlier you book your rental car for Argentina, the better offers you will get. If not, you can cancel you car free of charge up until 24h before the pick up date.
If you can, you should plan with at least three weeks for your road trip through Argentina. If you want to travel all over Argentina, we recommend you take a domestic flight from Buenos Aires to Calafate and book a new rental car here. This will save you a lot of time on Argentina's roads. Alternatively, you can also get to know the beautiful north of the country around the Salta region. From the city of Salta you can make various excursions into the surrounding canyons, deserts and mountains. The landscapes around Salta are beautiful. Visit for example Mirador Hornocal.

Remember that Argentina is located in the southern hemisphere and that the seasons are opposite to ours in Europe or North America. The more northern the destination, the closer to the equator and the warmer the region. Visiting Buenos Aires is recommended from September to April. The hottest months here are December to February with around 86°. So ideal to escape the wet and icy winter. In the south of Argentina it is quite cold all year round. Even in the summer months only temperatures between 41-50° are reached in Ushuaia. In the Salta region rain falls more often in summer.
In Argentina one drives exactly like in the U.S. on the right side of the road. As the country is as already mentioned very big, it is worth renting a rental car to explore it. If you park your rental car, always make sure to park it on guarded parking lots. We would also advise you never to leave your valuables lying open in the car, this could attract potential thieves to break into your car. Also, do not stop on the way between towns, for instance when someone else is stranded or having car problems and asks for your help. Since this could be a trick to rob you, we recommend that you inform the nearest petrol station about the incident, so that they can arrange help for the strangers. The driving style of the Argentine motorists is usually a little chaotic for us Americans. Drive with the highest attention and don't be disturbed easily.
