About this Report

Executive Summary


  • Car rental in Chile is very sensitive to international tourist arrivals, so when inbound tourist flows change, the car rental market tends to follow suit. In 2012 the number of arrivals staying at least overnight increased by 5%. This continued the trend started in 2011, and confirmed the recovery after the 2010 earthquake. Tourists tended to be more willing to pay for car rental, particularly retired people from Europe or North America, or tourists from recently prosperous countries such as Brazil or Peru.


  • The Hertz Corp remained the leader in car rental in Chile in 2012, with a 32% value share. Hertz’s performance was supported both by the company’s good position in business car rental amongst mining companies in Chile, and its international reputation, which encourages tourists from North America and Europe to use its car rental services. It is also important to note Hertz’s efforts to position itself as a socially responsible company, working on its carbon emission technology to enhance the company’s image of reliability.


  • Car rental is expected to see a CAGR of 3% over the forecast period in constant value terms. As the inbound flow of tourists is expected to increase by a CAGR of 3% in the period 2012-2017, the performance of car rental should be around the same. The double-digit growth in recent years led to rapid growth which could limit development, so it is likely that a slowdown will be seen in the performance of car rental.
