Top tips for renting a car in Venezuela

Deciding to rent a car in Venezuela can give travelers the freedom they wouldn’t get by taking often unreliable public transport. Popular routes include driving from Caracas to Ciudad Bolivar or the western town of Merida, which is a great jumping-off point for exploring the Andes. Other car-friendly destinations include the El Avila National Park. Be aware that border regions are particularly unstable, thus, self-drive travel here is not advised.

Anyone who wishes to rent a car in Venezuela and travel outside urban areas would do well to consider a four-by-four. Roads in rural areas are often unpaved, and a vehicle like this will help you to access numerous areas of the country known for their outstanding natural beauty, which would not be possible in a normal sedan.

There are no laws on the use of child car restraints in Venezuela, but it is highly recommended that you place your children in a car seat if you would do so when driving at home. Some travelers may prefer to bring their own booster seats with them, but agencies may also be able to provide seats for an additional fee, such as the miniscule fee of 10 VEF (0.0016 USD) per day through Amigos Car Rental. Always be sure to book this service in advance.

You should always park your rental vehicle in a secure (preferably attended) parking lot. Parking costs tend to be low, and lots are both well marked and readily available in urban areas.
