Top tips for hiring a car in Peru

  • While the majority of the country is connected by a bus system, buses can be crowded and might limit what you can see of the countryside. Renting your own car in Peru also gives you the flexibility to travel on your own schedule, as bus departures will vary depending on the location.
  • If you’re planning to rent a car in Peru with the intention to explore the country’s mountainous areas and the other places outside of Lima and other large cities, you’ll need a four-wheel drive vehicle to get around. Rural roads in Peru are often poorly maintained, and a four-by-four will make these areas easier to navigate on your own.
  • The laws regarding child restraints in Peru are only specific about the position of children within the vehicle. Children under the age of 12 must be in the back seat. One other rule states that children under the age of three must be secured in a child restraint system that is appropriate for their age. Larger rental agencies like Hertz have child seats available for reservation, or you can bring your own if you’re already traveling with one on hand.
  • If you’re renting a car in Peru with the hope of taking it across the border to Bolivia or Argentina, it’s important to know that rental car agencies will not allow you to take their vehicles out of the country. If you’re planning on venturing out of Peru, you’ll have to fly or take one of the international buses.
  • Book your rental car in Peru at least 4 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Peru are around 60% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What is driving like in Peru?

    Driving in Peru varies greatly based on where you are in the country. In big cities like Lima, traffic can be congested, while you can travel for several miles on the road in the countryside without seeing another vehicle. You’ll drive on the right side of the road in Peru, and horns are a common way to communicate with other drivers.

  • How old do you have to be to hire a car in Peru?

    The minimum age to rent a car in Peru ranges from 21 to 25, depending on the agency you choose. Budget and a handful of other larger, multi-national rental car agencies allow people 21 years and up to rent a car, while others will rent only to drivers at least 23 or 25 years old. You’ll need your passport to rent a car in Peru, but you won’t need an international driving permit.

  • How much does petrol cost in Peru?

    Filling up your petrol tank in Peru will cost you a bit more than filling up in the US, as petrol is nearly twice as expensive. A gallon of petrol will cost you an average of 14.72 PEN (4.39 USD).

  • What are the speed limits in Peru?

    The speed limits in Peru are similar to the limits in Europe and the US, but perhaps a bit slower. In school and hospital zones, the speed limit is 30 km/h (19 mph). If you’re traveling on smaller roads in cities and towns, the limit will be around 40 km/h (25 mph). Speed limits in urban areas go up to 60 km/h (37 mph), and the speed limits on the expressway go up to 100 km/h (62 mph).
