Car Hire Guide: Bahía Blanca (Comandante Espora Airport (BHI) Airport 

Stepping into Bahía Blanca, one is immediately greeted with the fusion of cultural vibrancy and the serene landscape of Argentina. If you're arriving via Comandante Espora Airport (BHI) and considering car rental, this guide is tailored for you. Let's journey through the essentials of hiring a car and navigating the region.

Why Rent a Car at Bahía Blanca Airport?

  1. Location Convenience: Situated approximately 12 km from the city center, the airport serves as a strategic starting point for your Bahía Blanca adventures.
  2. Freedom of Movement: With your own car, discover Bahía Blanca and the surrounding region at your pace without relying on public transport schedules.
  3. Diverse Fleet: Multiple car hire providers cater to a range of preferences, be it economy cars or luxury SUVs.

Exiting Comandante Espora Airport:

  • Primary Exit Road: The main route connecting the airport to the city is Ruta Nacional N° 3. It's a straightforward drive leading directly to the heart of Bahía Blanca.
  • City Accessibility: With smooth traffic, you can reach the city center in about 15-20 minutes.

Driving Insights:

  1. Toll Points: While Ruta Nacional N° 3 is majorly toll-free within the city limits, always carry some Argentine pesos for unexpected tolls especially if you're venturing out further.
  2. Road Quality: Roads in and around Bahía Blanca are reasonably well-maintained. However, off-main routes can sometimes be uneven, demanding extra caution.
  3. Traffic Flow: Like many cities, morning (8 am-10 am) and evening (5 pm-7 pm) see peak traffic. Plan your travels to avoid possible congestion during these hours.

Argentine Driving Customs:

  • Driving Side: Argentina, like most countries in the Americas, follows right-hand driving.
  • Parking: On-street parking in Bahía Blanca is common but always look out for signage indicating restrictions.
  • Documentation: Always have your valid driving license, car hire documentation, and passport with you while driving.
  • Mobile Phones: Using mobile phones without a hands-free system is prohibited.
  • Seat Belts: Wearing seat belts is mandatory for all passengers, not just the driver.

Handy Tips for International Drivers:

While Argentina's driving rules are similar to many countries, if you're accustomed to the USA's driving norms, note these:

  • Roundabouts: Vehicles within the roundabout usually have the right of way, but always watch for signs and local driving behaviors.
  • Speed Limits: Urban areas typically have a 40-60 km/h limit, and highways range from 100-130 km/h. However, always follow local signage.

In Summary:
