Top tips for renting a car in Santiago

  • Santiago, Chile has a lot to offer, from the Museo Interactivo Mirador to the Fantasilandia Amusement Park, and many other wonderful parks dotted around. The most convenient and flexible way to see all the major attractions is by renting a car for your stay to make sure you see everything according on your own terms. Don’t waste time and energy with public transport and expensive cabs, but get your own wheels and make the most of your visit.
  • Santiago’s International Airport is about 11 miles from Santiago center, so it is a great way to start the trip by picking up a car directly at the airport’s hire car desks. Follow the signs upon arrival to the car center and choose from various companies, including Alamo, Europcar, and Sixt. The fastest way into Santiago is via the Costanera Norte (to the Plaza de Armas).
  • Santiago is a big metropolitan city and, therefore, can have lots of traffic, so patience is definitely a must when driving in the city. Having said that, it is much easier to find an alternative route with a car than being stuck in traffic with a bus where travelers are dependent on the route the bus has to follow. When venturing outside of the city to explore the beautiful Chilean countryside, traffic decreases dramatically and a great ride is practically guaranteed.
  • Rush hour in Santiago is a time to be avoided, if possible, as the cars are moving even slower than in regular traffic and waiting times can go up to one hour. Usually, rush hour is on weekdays between 8 and 9:30 am and 6 and 8:30 pm, and downtown gets especially clogged up with commuters.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Santiago for $26 or less
  • Book your rental car in Santiago at least 7 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Santiago are around 46% cheaper than other car types, on average

How are gas prices in Santiago?

The average price for petrol is around 778 Chilean pesos per liter ($4.60 per gallon). Petrolstations in Chile are not on every corner, so seize the opportunity to get petrol whenever it presents itself. “Bomberos” are the station’s employees who will come to assist with the refilling of the car; travelers should always check the pump before the bombero starts refilling, to make sure it is set to zero.

Where are the best places to park in Santiago?

Street parking in Santiago is metered, so always check at the sign to learn what the time restrictions are and how much it costs. Alternatively, there are also parking garages and lots available, such as the Republic Parking System Chile or the Republic Parking Santiago Downtown. It is also worth asking the hotel or accommodation if a parking space is included, as that would be the easiest solution. Also remember to never leave any valuables in your hire car.
