Top tips for hiring a car in Peru

While the majority of the country is connected by a bus system, buses can be crowded and might limit what you can see of the countryside. Renting your own car in Peru also gives you the flexibility to travel on your own schedule, as bus departures will vary depending on the location.
If you’re planning to rent a car in Peru with the intention to explore the country’s mountainous areas and the other places outside of Lima and other large cities, you’ll need a four-wheel drive vehicle to get around. Rural roads in Peru are often poorly maintained, and a four-by-four will make these areas easier to navigate on your own.
The laws regarding child restraints in Peru are only specific about the position of children within the vehicle. Children under the age of 12 must be in the back seat. One other rule states that children under the age of three must be secured in a child restraint system that is appropriate for their age. Larger rental agencies like Hertz have child seats available for reservation, or you can bring your own if you’re already traveling with one on hand.
If you’re renting a car in Peru with the hope of taking it across the border to Bolivia or Argentina, it’s important to know that rental car agencies will not allow you to take their vehicles out of the country. If you’re planning on venturing out of Peru, you’ll have to fly or take one of the international buses.
