Vina del Mar Car Rental Information

Viña del Mar Car Rental Guide: 

Viña del Mar, often referred to as "La Ciudad Jardín" or "The Garden City," is a crown jewel nestled along Chile's Pacific coast. Known for its pristine beaches, grand architecture, and lush green parks, the city attracts both national and international visitors. If you're contemplating renting a car to explore Viña del Mar and its surroundings, this guide has got you covered.

1. Benefits of Hiring a Car in Viña del Mar:

  • Flexibility: Renting a car offers you the liberty to explore the city's attractions at your own pace without being tied to public transportation schedules.

  • Surrounding Exploration: Beyond the city, the Valparaíso region boasts numerous attractions. Having a car allows you to venture into neighboring cities, coastal towns, and vineyards with ease.

  • Comfort: Enjoy the comfort of traveling with your luggage, shopping, or any equipment for beach activities without the hassle of carrying them on public transport.

2. Distance to the Nearest Airport:

  • Arturo Merino Benítez International Airport (SCL) in Santiago is the nearest major airport to Viña del Mar, approximately 110 km away. By car, the journey typically takes around 1.5 to 2 hours, depending on traffic.

3. Road Conditions and Traffic:

  • Road Quality: Major roads leading to and within Viña del Mar are in good condition. Routes 68 and 78 are the main highways connecting Santiago to Viña del Mar and are well-maintained.

  • Traffic: While Viña del Mar's traffic is generally moderate, it can become congested during peak hours and holiday weekends. Plan your trips accordingly.

4. Tolls:

  • There are toll booths on the main highways connecting Santiago and Viña del Mar. Ensure you have some Chilean pesos on hand as these tolls don't always accept credit cards.

5. Recommended Attractions and Routes:

  • Playa Reñaca: A popular beach spot just a short drive north of Viña's city center. Ideal for sunbathing and surfing.

  • Quinta Vergara: This iconic park, housing an amphitheater and the Vergara Palace, is a testament to the city's rich history and is a short drive from most parts of the city.

  • Valparaíso: Just 10 km from Viña del Mar, this UNESCO World Heritage port city, with its colorful houses, historic funiculars, and vibrant street art, is a must-visit.

  • Casablanca Valley: Approximately 40 km away, this wine region is perfect for a day trip. Here, you can savor some of Chile's finest white wines amidst picturesque vineyards.

6. Car Rental Tips:

  • Advance Booking: Especially in peak seasons, reserve your car in advance to ensure availability and better rates.

  • Required Documentation: Typically, you'll need a valid driving license, passport, and a credit card for the security deposit.

  • Insurance: Always consider opting for comprehensive coverage for peace of mind, especially if you're unfamiliar with local driving conditions.

In Conclusion:

Viña del Mar, with its perfect blend of urban charm and coastal allure, offers a rich experience for travelers. Renting a car enhances this experience manifold, offering unparalleled freedom to weave your own journey. Drive safe, and soak in all that the Garden City has to offer!

We do advise prebooking your hire car at least four weeks in advance to reserve the vehicle you require at the absolute best price. You can prebook collection from Vina del Mar online or collection from any of our numerous locations throughout Chile.
