Renting a camper requires a minimum age of 25 years. The minimum age for renting a motorcycle is 23 years. In some cases, it is possible that the car rental agency makes an exception. Please inquire with us.

Credit card:

A valid credit card is required for car, camper or motorbike rentals to generate a blank voucher which serves as a guarantee during the rental period.

Rental period:

Car-Rental-Chile requires a minimum rental time for rental cars of 5 days, for campers it’s 7 days and for motorcycles we requiere 10 days as a minimum. One day counts as 24 hours. When you exceed the booked rental period, you will be charged an additional cost when dropping the car off. There is a grace period of 2 hours. No refunds will be made on a prematurely returned car/camper/motorcycle.

National / International driving license

To drive a car in Chile, it is sufficient to carry your national driving license. Only for renting a camper we recommend carrying an international driver’s license, in addition to your national driver’s license. For renting a motorcycle the national and the international driver’s license for the relevant class has to be shown and carried with you.

Guarantee / Voucher

You need an international credit card to rent a car, caravan or motorcycle in Chile. This credit card allows the company to create a blank voucher which serves as a deposit during the rental period. By proper return of the vehicle, the voucher will be given back to you or destroyed.

Photos

The photos of the respective car categories are not original pictures of the vehicles, rather, are examples of each category. The accuracy of the image is therefore subject to change. We only confirm car categories, not specific car models. On motorcycles, we confirm the model, but the picture may differ from the rented motorcycle.
