Highlights in Chile

You don't have to worry about boredom in Chile. Whether culture, nature or sports lover - there is something for every taste. The most comfortable way to reach your desired destinations is by hired car. Don't miss the following highlights in Chile:

Atacama Desert

A definite must-see when travelling through Chile is the Atacama Desert. It is considered to be the driest desert in the world and stretches along the Pacific coast. Here are a few tips on what not to miss in the Atacama Desert:

  • Riding over the sand dunes
  • Bathing in the hot springs of the Puritama Valley
  • San Pedro
  • Sandboarding
Easter Island

If you have a little more time in Chile, then you should definitely spend a few days on Easter Island in the Pacific. It is the most remote inhabited island in the world and owes its fame to the up to 6 m high stone figures. But also the crater of the volcano Rano Raraku and the coastal waters with many colourful fish species are worth an excursion.

With the right insurance through Chile

Even if you drive very carefully and safely, damage may occur to the hired car. To ensure that you can continue your journey without stress, we recommend that you take out fully comprehensive insurance without excess. In the event of damage, you will have to advance the costs. However, you will be reimbursed by your insurance company after your arrival back home. Simply submit the relevant receipts when you return from Chile.

One-way rental

For those who want to do a road trip to Chile with a hired car, the one-way rental might be the best option. This means that you can pick up your hired car at the location of your choice and return it conveniently to another location. This is particularly useful if you are heading for cities that are far away from each other, such as Puerto Natales, Antofagasta and Aysén.

Additional driver

What does the additional driver option actually mean? If you specify another person as an additional driver when booking, you can take turns driving the hired car. Distances in Chile are often very long. If only one person drives the hired car, this can be quite exhausting. So that the driver can sit back and relax, too, you can simply hand over the steering wheel to the additional driver.

Discover Chile by hired car

With a hired car, you are able to discover Chile by yourself. Enjoy the benefits of a hired car, for example being able to explore the different sights of Chile flexible and independent, apart from public transport and touristic groups.
