Top tips for renting a car in Bolivia

  • Bolivia has one of the highest elevations in South America; therefore, it is a great idea to get an SUV or other four-wheel drive if you plan to drive cross-country. Some rental companies like Economy offer unlimited mileage to international tourists, which should set your mind at ease while you enjoy the more scenic routes. Renting a GPS is also an excellent idea.
  • As long as you remain within the country, US citizens traveling to Bolivia do not require an International Driver’s Permit. And as long as you have a valid driver’s license, passport, and credit card, you are allowed to rent and drive a car in the country. If, however, you intend to cross international borders (Peru, Brazil, or Argentina, for example), it’s a good idea to have one.
  • Pedestrians always have the right of way in Bolivia. Additionally, parking laws tend to be less restrictive compared to the United States, so you can park your car on most streets as long as you are not within 16 ft of a corner or intersection. Still, it is recommended to make use of carparks whenever and wherever possible for security purposes.
  • Traffic police in Bolivia are known to conduct random checks, so always make sure you have all of your documents (license, passport, rental papers) in the car before you leave for your destination. Also, there are no child-seat laws in Bolivia, and though rental car agencies will provide child seats in advance upon request, it is not a bad idea to travel with your own if feasible.
