Top Tips

  • In the winter months (June - August), the levels of smog in Santiago can be very high. During this time, cars are restricted from driving in the city between 7.30am and 9pm. Be extra careful if you’re driving in conditions with poor visibility.
  • Parking spaces in Santiago may be narrower than what you’re used to, so take care if you’re manoeuvring into a tight space.
  • Petrol stations in Chile can be scarce, so don’t let the tank drop too low.

Which companies offer best value in Santiago?

Many cars in Santiago come with a special offer — usually a ‘package’, which includes things like unlimited mileage, the highway toll charge, local taxes and the first additional driver in the rental price. You will see which cars offers like this apply to once you search on our site. You also want reassurance that you’re hiring with a trusted, reputable company; so we show reviews and ratings left by previous customers next to each car listing.

Day trips from Santiago

Quintay: About an hour and a half from Santiago, the small fisherman’s village of Quintay really is a hidden gem. Boasting a sandy beach overlooked by hillside houses, Quintay is a great place for foodies — particularly those who love fish and seafood dishes. There are a handful of restaurants which serve up the catch of the day. Many of the restaurants also have outdoor terraces, offering beautiful views over the bay.

La Parva: Just 60km east of Santiago, La Parva is the perfect place to don some skis or a snowboard. The resort has a dedicated area for beginners to brush up on their skills, while more confident skiers will enjoy the range of intermediate slopes. When you’ve had enough action on the pistes, enjoy a delicious meal from one of the many restaurants; and soak up the spectacular views of the Andes Mountains.

Valparaíso: The colourful port city of Valparaíso is around one hour and 20 minutes from Santiago. Home to brightly-coloured buildings, painted staircases and graffitied walls, Valparaíso has a shabby yet artistic feel. The city is known for its funicular lifts, which have been recognised by the World Monuments Fund as one of the world’s 100 most endangered historical treasures. The historic centre (characterised by a maze of cobbled streets and alleyways) is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
