Renting an RV … in Argentina!
by Sean Michael of TheLongLongHoneymoon.com
If you want to RV camp in Argentina, the most obvious method is to fly into the country and rent an RV. So that’s what we did. Our rental company of choice was Ruta|Sur (the name’s Spanish for “Road South”).
We discovered Ruta|Sur the same way anyone else might: we Googled ‘em. Or more specifically, we Googled “RV camping in Argentina” and bingo! There was Ruta|Sur near the top of the page.
I was pleased to discover the company website offered an ENGLISH presentation. Being able to actually read and understand information is a big plus! Encouraged, I completed a simple online form on RutaSur.com, clicked “send,” and went on about my business.
The next day, my telephone rang. I glanced down at the Caller ID screen on my phone. It read “OUT OF AREA.”
Little did I realize just how far “out of my area” this phone call originated. That’s right — it was Ruta|Sur on the line! Or to be more specific, it was a man named Oscar Martinez.
“Hello,” said an Argentinian voice. “This is Oscar calling from Ruta|Sur in Buenos Aires. I am calling to discuss a motor home rental. You sent the form from our website…”
I was impressed. Not only was there a quick follow up to my inquiry, but it came via telephone — and from a man speaking excellent English!
So Oscar and I discussed RV camping in Argentina. We made arrangements to meet in Buenos Aires.
Upon arriving in Argentina, Kristy and I met with the Ruta|Sur folks on multiple occasions. I feel we got a good impression of the company, and of the RV business in Argentina.
