Santiago, Chile: SUV and Offroad Rental Tips

While selecting your preferred model of an off-road vehicle, please examine the rental conditions. In particular, those requirements that concern credit cards – when it comes to renting an expensive car, sometimes offices in Chile ask information about two credit cards.

Before signing the contract in the rental office upon arrival, check that the invoice figures match with figures in your voucher.

Once the vehicle is assigned, inspect it carefully before leaving the parking. Crossovers and SUVs are often used in tough road conditions, therefore scratches and other exteriour defects are inevitable. Due to this, it is important to check and specify all existing defects in your rental documents.

If you plan to use an off-road vehicle in the mountains, it is recommended to order snow chains. This will save you from unexpected incidents. Other important equipment in Chile are mandatory child seats for travellers with children. wishes you a safe trip and green lights on the roads of Santiago!

Driving Advices for Chile – Traffic Regulations and Road Usage Peculiarities
Previous hints
In spite of the fact that the car traffic is really intense in the country, local drivers treat pedestrians with great care and respect. When approaching a crossroads or a traffic light, make sure to slow down. Even temperamental local drivers always give way to pedestrians and other motorists, if that is required by the traffic regulations.
Pedestrians, in their turn, do not always follow traffic regulations. They can easily cross the street in the wrong place or at the red light, without paying any attention to the cars on the road.
The maximum allowed speed in the territory of settlements is 70 km/h, and on country roads it is allowed to increase the speed up to 120 km/h. The maximum permitted speed is usually mentioned on road signs; it is recommended to follow the rules because the speed of vehicles is strictly monitored in Chile.
