Sure, you can get around Cartagena without a rental vehicle. But with so much to check out here, having one would definitely make life easier. If you’re planning to get out of town and into some nature, choose a ride with some power. A full-size or mid-size SUV will get you to the area’s dunes in roomy style. Prefer to spend most of your time right in the city? A compact or mini car is the way to go. Driving through narrow streets and squeezing into tiny parking spots will be easy in one of these.
For some people, owning a high-end vehicle is little more than a pipe dream. But renting your dream ride is certainly within your grasp! Picture yourself tearing down the open road in a swish sports car, even if it’s only for a little while. Or perhaps all you’re chasing is a trusty set of wheels to get you quickly from A to B. Flashy or thrifty? Whatever you decide, one thing’s for sure — there’s a rental car to suit your style in Cartagena.
If you’re going to leave your car in the center of town and venture around the area on foot, we don’t expect you’ll have any trouble finding a spot. Just be sure to read any nearby signs and adhere to the rules. You don’t want to ruin an exciting day of adventuring with a fine.
As with most cities, the roads are generally busy in the early and late rush hours. However, thanks to its smaller population of about 212,000, traffic gridlock isn’t much of an issue in Cartagena.
Normally, your chosen rental company will charge the fined amount to your credit card. Alternatively, the company may supply your contact details to the relevant local agency so they can send a fine directly to you.
