Top tips for renting a car in Uruguay

  • If you’re thinking about taking long road trips across the region, find out if any Uruguay car rental agencies offer cross-border policies so you can enjoy excursions into Paraguay, Argentina, or Brazil. It’s also a good idea to see which ones offer one-way policies that allow you to leave your vehicle at another domestic or international location for some additional flexibility. A GPS system is a great resource for staying on track as you go. Also, ask if any agencies provide Wi-Fi coverage as an added precaution.
  • Seat belts are mandatory in Uruguay. Both front and rear passengers should wear seat belts at all times. Kids below 12 aren't allowed on the front row and must be accompanied by an adult in the back row. Kids below 5 should be in a safety seat.
  • Parking in Uruguay is generally very accessible, especially in major cities. However, during the summer, you will find difficulty getting parking as most tourists flood the area. Parking is available in the form of metered street parking and paid lots and garages. Street parking is free every Sunday.
  • The type of car you choose to drive in Uruguay, will largely depend on the number of people you are transporting and places you visit. If you are solo and sticking to urban areas such as Montevideo, a compact car will do well. If you'll be heading the wetlands of Laguna Merin, a 4X4 is required, while a convertible will do well for the beach.
  • Uruguay has some toll roads that you will encounter when sightseeing. The most used toll roads are along the Main Colonia - Punta del Este route, and you will also encounter some along the Rocha - Montevideo route. Tolls aren't expensive, costing around 80 UYU (2 USD), and are paid electronically.
  • Whether you’re headed to Punta del Este for business or pleasure, relying on public transport can be time consuming and inconvenient. Uruguay car rentals offer sporty compact cars, sturdy SUVs, and streamlined sedans to reliably transport you and your family or friends in comfort and style. The resort area of Playa Grande is approximately 42.5 kilometers (26 miles) from Punta del Este while capital city Montevideo is about 130 km (80 mi) west via Ruta Interbalnearia (IB), which means inter-resort route.
  • We recommend all U.S. drivers carry International Driving Permits along with valid domestic drivers’ licenses, and be sure to have your passport and return ticket when you arrive at the rental car office. Those with advanced reservations should have their details handy and remember to use the same payment card used for the booking. Major credit cards are accepted for payment, but several of the big companies also allow the use of bank debit cards with Visa or MasterCard logos. In any case, the name on the card must match the primary driver of the vehicle.
