Colombia car hire information

Does Colombia have any unique traffic laws?

If you're picking up a car hire in Colombia and planning on driving yourself around the country, you'll want to note a couple of traffic laws. Keep in mind that you'll drive on the right-hand side of the road in Colombia and pass on the left. The minimum driving age in the country is 18 years of age, though rental cars aren't available to those under 21. If you're a foreign driver in a rental car, the traffic police will identify you easily and you will be fined for any infractions. So, pay attention to the speed limits and ensure you wear your seatbelt at all times and only use your mobile phone with a hands-free device. The speed limit on public roads in urban areas is 37 mph, while roads in rural areas are typically 50 mph, and highways and connecting routes are generally 62 mph unless otherwise stated. Keep in mind that it's recommended to drive on highways with your headlights on, though not enforceable. If you're involved in an accident of any sort, you must wait for the police to arrive before moving your vehicle as the police create a report based on where the vehicles are found.

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

To start with, although the legal driving age is 18, you won't be able to rent a car if you're under 21. Some car rental companies require you to be at least 23 before allowing a car hire. If you're under the age of 25, you will likely incur an additional young drivers surcharge. As a foreigner driving a rental car in Colombia, you must have your national driving licence, an International Driving Permit (IDP), and a valid credit card with sufficient funds to pay for your deposit. If you book and pay online, you must produce the same credit card and the owner of the card must be present. Finally, you will need to produce a valid form of identification such as a national ID or passport.

Which areas of Colombia have the most traffic?

Driving rental cars in Colombia is a wonderful way to explore the countryside and vast landscape, but you may want to avoid driving inside major cities due to the traffic congestion, particularly in Medellin and Bogota. Medellin is ranked as one of the worst cities in the world when it comes to traffic congestion, but Bogota is known for being even worse. in 2020, the average driver in Bogota lost close to 133 hours a year to congestion. In Medellin, the worst places in the city for congestion tend to be in El Poblado and El Centro. In both Medellin and Bogota, the best way to avoid congestion is to avoid rush hour traffic, however, we suggest you find somewhere to park your car hire and make use of public transport.

What are the best scenic roads in Colombia?

Colombia is considered one of the most beautiful countries in the world and is also one of the most biodiverse. The country is home to sweeping hills, mountains, oceans, forests and much more. One of the best trips to take is the drive to Cartagena, a port city founded in 1533 on the Caribbean coast and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The drive to and through Cartagena offers views of the ocean, islands, and the surrounding jungle. Another drive worth making in car rentals is a trip through Guatape, often referred to as 'the most colourful town in Colombia', located a short trip away from La Piedra, one of the biggest free-standing rocks in the world.
