Top tips for renting a car in Medellín

  • If you want to make the most out of your time in Medellin, undoubtedly the best way to do it is to rent a car. There is a plethora of wonderful day trips you can make from the city that will transform your vacation into a trip you will never forget. For instance, the lakeside town of Guatape is just 85 km (53 miles) away and it is worth every kilometer driven.
  • Looking to pick up a hire car after your flight to Medellin lands? Travelers with flights landing at José María Córdova International Airport will find the hire car counters on the ground floor of the airport’s main lobby.
  • One thing to keep in mind when driving in Medellin (and Colombia in general), is that there is a strict no drinking and driving policy. It is illegal to drive with a blood alcohol content above 0.04% in Colombia, whereas in the United States the legal limit is 0.08%. To put this in perspective for drivers, just two drinks risks you being over the legal limit. So make sure to drive safely and never drink and drive.
  • Rush hour traffic in Medellin is not the most severe but it can certainly put a damper on your day if you get caught in the heart of it. Drivers looking to avoid the congestion are best off avoiding the road between 6:30 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. and from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. As far as traffic goes, the neighborhoods of El Poblado and El Centro are often some of the most congested areas in the city and are best visited during non-peak traffic hours.
  • Book your rental car in Medellín at least 6 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
