Top tips for renting a car in Colombia

  • Renting a car in Colombia offers the most freedom in terms of the locations you can visit and the schedule on which you can visit them. The alternative transport method of bus travel can be slow, and destinations like Hacienda La Aurora, the Pacific coastal region and other natural destinations can often be impossible to visit and navigate when relying on Colombia’s bus system.
  • Because Colombia is the second most biodiverse country in the world, you can run into a plethora of different driving conditions when navigating and exploring the country. Renting a car or sedan is sufficient for getting between more developed towns and cities, but a four-wheel drive vehicle will be necessary to tackle the mountainous regions and jungle roads in Colombia.
  • There are no specific laws regulating child restraint in vehicles when traveling in Colombia. If you would prefer to secure your child in a car seat when driving around Colombia, consider either bringing your own or renting a car through one of the larger, multinational companies that offer child seats as an add-on feature. You can reserve one at the same time you reserve your car.
  • If you’re planning to explore the neighboring countries after renting a car in Colombia, it’s important to note that many rental car agencies will not allow you to cross the border in your rental car. To visit Peru, Ecuador or one of the other surrounding countries by car, you’ll need to fly into the country or travel over land by bus and then rent a car there.

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.

The speed limit on residential roads is up to 30 km/h (18 mph), the speed limit on roads in rural areas is up to 80 km/h (50 mph) and the speed limit on major motorways can be up to 100 km/h (62 mph).
