Car Hire Lima Useful Information

Lima is the capital of Peru. It is in the centre of the country on a desert coast next to the Pacific Ocean. Jorge Chavez International Airport has flights to cities worldwide and from there you can collect your rental car. The car journey time takes between 20 and 40 minutes, the city is easily accessible by the Pan American Highways, which go north and south of Lima.
 

Driving in Lima, the capital city of Peru, can be a unique and sometimes challenging experience. Here's what you need to know about driving in Lima, including safety considerations and the type of car to choose:

Driving Conditions:

  • Roads: Lima has a network of well-maintained roads. Some areas, especially in the city center, may have narrower streets. Major highways and avenues connect various parts of the city.

  • Traffic: Lima is known for heavy traffic congestion, particularly during rush hours. Traffic can be chaotic, and drivers often display aggressive behavior. Be prepared for frequent stops and slow-moving traffic, especially in the city's central areas.

  • Pedestrians and Bicyclists: Lima has a significant number of pedestrians and bicyclists. It's essential to drive with caution and be aware of these road users.

  • Safety: Lima has its share of traffic-related safety concerns. Road conditions and infrastructure can vary. Take care when driving on uneven or potholed roads, and be cautious at intersections.

Type of Car:

  • When renting a car in Lima, consider choosing a vehicle that is well-suited for city driving and can handle potentially challenging road conditions. Compact or mid-sized cars are practical for navigating through the city's narrow streets and traffic.

  • We offer both manual and automatic transmission options. If you're more comfortable with one type, be sure to specify your preference when booking your rental car.

Safety Considerations:

  • Driving in Lima requires attentiveness and caution. Here are some safety considerations to keep in mind:

    • Be aware of aggressive drivers and practice defensive driving.
    • Follow traffic rules and obey road signs and signals.
    • Use seat belts at all times, and ensure all passengers do the same.
    • Keep your doors locked while driving in urban areas, especially in busy traffic.
  • If you're not familiar with Lima's streets and traffic patterns, consider using a GPS or a navigation app to help you find your way.

  • Avoid driving at night, if possible, especially in areas that are less well-lit and may be less safe.

  • Know the location of the nearest gas stations, as running out of fuel in traffic can be inconvenient.

  • If you plan to drive outside of Lima to explore other parts of Peru, be prepared for varying road conditions, including mountainous terrain and rural roads. It's advisable to check local road conditions and weather before embarking on longer journeys.

While driving in Lima may come with some unique challenges, it can also provide a convenient way to explore the city and its surroundings. Be sure to prioritize safety, remain vigilant, and choose a suitable vehicle for the city's driving conditions. With over three hundred years of Spanish colonial history, the city is full of important churches and monasteries. Take a drive out to Nazca and see the ancient and mysterious Nazca Lines or see the centre of Inca civilization of Cuzco. For the modern face of Lima, take your hire car to Miraflores.
