Argentina car hire information

Does Argentina have any unique traffic laws?

When using car hire in Argentina, you must drive on the right and overtake from the left-hand side. Your headlights must always be on and dimmed, day and night. All passengers, both in the front and in the back, must wear seat belts, and you can't use your mobile phone when you're driving unless it's hands-free. You must also make sure you only park in the direction of traffic flow, as this is a legal requirement. On the road, it's compulsory to carry with you two safety triangles, a fire extinguisher, and a first-aid kit; check that your supplier equips rental cars with these essentials. If travelling with children, note they can't travel in the front if they're under ten years old. While driving in Argentina, there may be police checkpoints along the way, so if you're pulled over, make sure you have your driving licence, passport, and car rental documentation.

What are the legal and documentation requirements for renting a car in Argentina?

You must be over 21 years old to rent a car in Argentina, and you must have had your driving licence for at least a year. Some car rental companies will add a young driver surcharge to your bill if you're under 25. In most cases, all you need to present at your provider's desk is a valid driving licence, a passport, and a debit or credit card. In some cases, they may also ask to see an International Driving Permit (IDP), especially if your licence isn't in English. You can drive with a foreign licence for up to a year in Argentina. Tell your supplier first if you're keen to visit other countries in your car hire, such as neighbouring Chile. Some might add a cross-border surcharge, while others may not allow it at all.

Which areas of Argentina have the most traffic?

Buenos Aires, the Argentinian capital, is one of the most congested cities in the world. The area around Casa Rosada and the Argentinian Congress can have long waiting times, as well as roads on the shore of Rio de la Plata such as Leopoldo Lugones Avenue. While we recommend parking your car hire at the hotel or in a secure car park, if you do need to drive in the city, your life will be easier using a GPS or a live-traffic app such as Waze. Other city centres, for example in Cordoba, can also get busy, especially at morning and evening commute times. Intercity toll roads can also get congested at times, and you should have some local currency prepared to pay toll fees. Roads outside of urban settlements don't have much traffic, but you should research your route before booking rental cars in Argentina, as some rural or mountain roads are best travelled in a 4x4.

What are the best scenic roads in Argentina?

It won't come as a surprise that Ruta 40 is one of the most popular roads for rental cars in Argentina. Thousands of miles long, this highway connects the north of the country to the south, tracing the Andes mountains from the Bolivian border to Patagonia. Diversity of landscape defines Ruta 40, and you can see this best in the north. Around Salta, the arid, rocky landscape changes steeply as you drive on zig-zagging mountain roads to the Abra de Acay and Cuesta de Lipán peaks, miles above sea level. Look out for panoramic points on Ruta 40, such as the town of Cachi, with snowy mountain peaks in view. In the north-east, rich rainforests abound and you should definitely drive up Ruta 12 or 14 to Iguazu Falls, on the Brazilian border, if you want a jaw-dropping view of over 100 waterfalls cascading across more than a mile.
