Self Drive in Chile

Travelling by car is a fantastic way of exploring a new country as it gives you complete freedom and control over your holiday. You can travel at your own pace, stopping where you want, for how long you want at any location along the way. On the whole, the roads in Chile are in good condition, although you’re bound to come across a gravel road at some point. We’ll arrange it all for you by adding car hire to the parts of your itinerary where it makes sense, and adding other forms of transportation (e.g. buses & flights) elsewhere.
