Base in Montevideo

In Montevideo we can recommend a good place for overlanders with electricity, water and wifi. Propane, supermarkets and repair shops are close by. It’s the perfect place to spend a couple of days in order to prepare your vehicle for the road.

Mobile phone & Internet

Pets

Domestic animals are accepted almost everywhere in Latin America. No quarantine is required.

The supply of diesel is not a problem in Latin America AdBlue is available at some places. Fuel prices are about 30-50% less than in Central Europe.

Propane gas and electricity

We can supply you with the necessary gas-adapters and voltage converters (110 volt north of Peru).

Calculation of shipping costs to Zarate

The freight rate is currently $62 per m³. Each centimeter counts as the customer is billed according to the exact dimensions of the vehivle. Up to 21m³ you pay a unit price.

Calculation of shipping costs to Montevideo, if you are not travelling as a passenger

Similar to ferries, the shipping costs are calculated according to the length of the vehicle. The calculation is performed on the centimeter for the benefit of the customer.

The freight rate is currently € 370,00 per meter of the vehicle's length. Each centimeter counts.

However, smaller vehicles are subjected to a lower unit price.

Travel with your motorhome on the same Ro/Ro vessel

You can accompany your vehicle and travel on board the same vessel. Prices per person start from € 2.070 for a double cabin, equipped with shower and toilet, all meals included. Opt for the owners cabin, which is larger and more comfortable but also more expensive than a standard cabin. In some ports shore leave is possible. You can drive your vehicle on board yourself.
