If you’re not used to manual transmission, make sure you book an automatic vehicle in advance. If you’re driving in the summer, a mid-size sedan should be fine. But if you’re driving in the winter, you’ll likely need a four-wheel drive, as the weather is quite rough and some roads aren’t great. Don’t forget to request a car with A/C.
The speed limit in urban areas across Chile is usually 50 km/h (30 mph), but it may be lower in certain residential areas. Rural roads have a maximum speed limit of 100 km/h (62 mph), and highways observe speed limits of 120 km/h (75 mph), unless otherwise marked.
