Peru Mini Guide

Among our automatic car rental Peru options are the Ford Mondeo, the Toyota Landcruiser and the VW Polo five door. We also have manual vehicles such as the Renault Clio, the Vauxhall Corsa and the Citroen Picasso estate. Most of our car rental Peru fleet comes with air conditioning, but you should make sure your vehicle has Air Conditioning when booking if it is something that you particularly want.

Peru mountains

Having car rental Peru gives you the freedom to see such amazing sites as Lake Titicaca, the world’s highest navigable lake and Machu Picchu, the ruins of an ancient Incan city which sit splendidly in the midst of moss covered mountains. Car rental Peru is a safe way to see the country as some forms of public transport can be quite treacherous there because of bad driving.

An international driver’s licence is needed in Peru but Rhino Car Hire can allow newly qualified drivers to rent, check with our staff when you make your booking. The booking process itself couldn’t be easier. You select the car you want and the dates and times of when you want it, then just enter your age and driver’s licence number. We give every driver our excellent insurance packages, but some drivers may want to pay a small extra fee to reduce their excess down to zero. This means they will not have to make any large payments if they have an accident.

Peru has a huge range of experiences that travellers can enjoy including the magnificent expanse of the Amazon rainforest, the lost Inca city of Machu Picchu, national parks and stunning scenery. Hiring a car in Peru is probably the best way to get around and see all that this fascinating country has to offer.
