Stretching 4,300 Kilometers from north to south yet only 175 kilometers wide, the country of Chile features a varied climate and diverse landscape for your next tour by car rental in South America.

As strange as a long ribbon of country might appear, it is logically placed between the two natural borders of the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. Across the Andes are the countries of Argentina and Bolivia, and to the north is Peru. Most overseas travelers to Chile pick up their car rental from Arturo Merino Benitez International Airport near Santiago. The largest airport in the country and the sixth busiest in South America, the Santiago International Airport offers several non-stop international connections to Europe, the Americas, and Australia.
It is also possible to drive to Chile by car hire from Mendoza, Bariloche, San Martin de los Andes, and Buenos Ares in Argentina. It is also possible to drive or take the bus from Peru and Bolivia.
There are several important points any traveler should know before driving a car rental in Chile. The traffic signs vary greatly from those seen in Europe and the United States in both shape and color, plus they are only in Spanish. You will find a smaller car rental much easier to park and navigate as Chilean parking spaces and lanes tend to be quite narrow. It is a good idea to keep Chilean money on you while driving for toll roads. Make sure you save the most on your car hire in Chile by booking online through CarHireX.com.
