Top tips for renting a car in Lima

  • Lima is a glorious city filled with colonial history, monasteries, archaeological sites, and a sprawling metropolis for you to explore. Organizing a rental car will give you the opportunity to witness the wonderful landscapes and hills that surround Lima. Not only will a rental car give you the freedom to navigate your travel at your own pace, it will also open up the chance to experience an authentic slice of Peru within the rural villages and districts that surround Lima.
  • Jorge Chávez International Airport is located 11 km (7 miles) from Lima and is a major transport hub for South America. Use KAYAK to view the best rental deals from a list of major companies such as Alamo, Avis, Budget, Hertz, and Thrifty at Jorge Chávez International Airport. Once you have organized your rental and collected your baggage, simply proceed to the Arrivals Hall, where you will find the counters of the rental agencies and have the car keys in your hand in no time.
  • Driving in Peru is unique and likely different from the conditions you have experienced elsewhere. The roads can be manic and drivers fight for every gap and angle. Understanding this before you arrive will hold you in good stead, so just be prepared to alter your driving nature and react to the new environment. The constant sound of car horns is also something you will get used to quickly -- a blast on the horn indicates that you are passing or approaching a nearby vehicle, rather than an indication of anger.
  • Lima has a population of almost 10 million and of course the city’s roads reflect this. Congestion is common throughout the majority of the day, with afternoon and evening periods the worst time to be driving. If possible, try to avoid driving after 3pm and look into finding secure parking where you can leave your car and have opportunity to explore the city via public transport and walking.

What's the speed limit in Lima?

Unless otherwise indicated, the maximum speed you can travel within the urban metropolis of Lima is 60 km/h (37 mph). Be careful, however, to check for signage as this can reduce to 40 km/h (24 mph) on smaller streets and 30 km/h (18 mph) near hospitals and schools. Peruvian drivers can sometimes be aggressive and exceed the speed limits, but avoid mimicking this behavior and stay below the specified maximum speed.

How are gas prices in Lima?

You can expect to pay approximately S/3.70 (Peruvian Sol) per liter of gas in Lima, which equates to approximately $4.14 USD per gallon. You can save money on fuel if your rental company offers the ability to choose a car compatible with LPG, which will commonly save you approximately $0.50 USD per gallon compared to regular gas.

Where are the best places to park in Lima?

If your accommodation in Lima provides parking, look to leave your car there while you explore the central district of town. If this is not an option, there are plenty of parking lots available in the Miraflores and San Isidro areas; however, on-street parking is not recommended for an extended period of time for security reasons.
