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.
The minimum age to rent a car in Peru ranges from 21 to 25, depending on the agency you choose.

You’ll need your passport to rent a car in Peru, but you won’t need an international driving permit.
