Getting around Colombia in a car can require defensive driving around cities and busier towns, as the flow of traffic can be fast-paced. It is also advised not to drive at night due to stray cattle and the abundance of cars, trucks and motorcycles without headlights. There are some major roads with tolls, and most of them are paid electronically. Ask about this with your rental car provider to ensure that you have the correct means to pay.
To rent a car in Colombia, you must be at least 18 years of age. However, drivers that are between 18 and 21 will be subject to an additional surcharge, which varies between different rental car companies. You can drive in Colombia with your US license, but you must have an international permit if you’re from a country with a non-Roman alphabet.
