Travel safely with the right insurance
When on vacation, no one wants unnecessary stress and a bad mood due to damage to the rental car. Therefore, we always recommend to take out fully comprehensive insurance without excess. This means that in the event of damage you will have to advance the costs, but will be reimbursed by your insurance company upon your return. If you want to be on the safe side, you can also take out glass, tyre and other insurance policies.
What to look out for when renting a car in South America
Traveling through South America by rental car
Pure relaxation with a rental car
With the exception of Guyana, Suriname and the Falkland Islands, in South American countries you have to drive on the right side of the road.
Especially in big cities you should keep your eyes open in traffic! Local drivers often do not follow the traffic rules. In case of doubt it is always better to brake and give the locals right of way.
Special care should be taken when driving at night, as many roads are not sufficiently illuminated.
For the border crossing between two countries the vehicle papers, the international driving licence and the passport must be present.
