LAS VEGAS – RTE has revealed how car rental companies in Argentina are charging rates that can exceed €40,000.
The news comes after a local newspaper published an article that revealed the rates.
RTE is the exclusive international broadcaster of the Argentinian car rental market.
The Buenos Aires Times, the largest newspaper in the capital city, reported on Wednesday that car rental services in the city charge up to €4,000 per month for a two-bedroom apartment.RTE has not independently verified the figures, but local media reports claimed the average rental fee was €6,000 and that the average price for a one-bedroom flat was €8,000, according to the paper.
However, RTE’s news service has been unable to confirm the claims, as it was not able to obtain an official statement from the city’s government.
The city of Buenos Aires has around 8,000 cars, but only a few thousand people rent cars from private companies.
According to the Buenos Aires City Council, more than 10% of the city is owned by private companies and it’s unclear if the city would be able to handle the additional costs.
A spokesperson for the city council told RTE that the rate is in line with the average rent in Buenos Aires and is based on the rate that a private company would charge for an apartment in the area.
The spokesperson added that the city has been looking into ways to improve its car rental service, and is in talks with the private car rental industry to improve the experience for its customers.RTA has also confirmed that Caravan Express is offering a two bedroom, one bathroom apartment for €7,500.
The company said it had set up a mobile app and was looking for additional partners to set up mobile rental agencies in the coming months.
Caravan Express has also offered a four bedroom, two bathroom apartment to people who have paid for a private car.
A car rental company spokesperson told Rte: “We are always looking for new partners and partners will be added in the near future.
We are also in discussions with other companies to offer services in Argentina.”
