What types of cars can I rent in South America?
Bustling city streets and tight parking spaces are no problem for an economy car — the most popular type of rental in South America. Take the wheel of one of these and negotiate traffic like a dream.

Compact, full-size and premium vehicles are some other options to choose from.

How old do you have to be to rent a car in South America?
In South America, the requirement is generally 21 years and over. Most outlets will charge additional fees for young drivers, which can differ based on the rental location. Rental policies for young drivers may restrict certain vehicles, such as luxury cars, and require inclusive insurance to be taken out. Remember to read the fine print carefully before choosing your wheels.
What do you need to rent a car in South America?
Before you can hit the road in South America, you’ll need a valid driver’s license and a credit card in the same name. If you choose not to take out the rental company’s insurance policy, you may also have to show proof of alternative coverage. Requirements may vary, so read the contract terms and conditions before you choose a rental provider.

Click through to our long-term car rental deals page, enter your preferences and then choose your perfect ride. Whether you’re staying put in South America or plan to journey beyond, Expedia will help you find a long-term rental at a fabulous rate.
Where can I find a South America car rental if I am younger than 25?
This depends on the car rental companies operating in South America. They often have different age policies. If you’ve found an outlet that does cater to drivers under 25, bear in mind that extra fees may apply. Conduct some research into what those charges could be before collecting the vehicle.
What insurance should I choose for my car rental in South America?
A comprehensive insurance policy is a smart idea for your South America getaway. That’s why we recommend opting in to collision protection while reserving your rental car with Expedia. This insures your vehicle against theft, vandalism and collision damage. Some destinations may require a minimum level of liability insurance. This may already be included in your rental cost or your personal auto insurance, so check what you’re covered for.
