Avoid paying through the nose for a rental car by following our suggestions:
Having your own ride in Bucaramanga will give you more freedom to squeeze in as many activities as possible. Maybe you just can't wait to head out of the city, cruise down the open road, and go where the wind blows. If that's the case, drive off in one of our mid-size or full-size SUVs and explore the impressive rock formations in the area. If you'd rather experience the bright city lights, take to the wheel of something small. Zooming around bustling streets and heavy traffic will be a lot less stressful in an economy or compact car.
Sometimes it's all about the journey, which makes finding the right car important. If you're planning an amazing road trip around Bucaramanga, a roomy SUV could be a good choice. If you're hoping for the cheapest possible price and plan on doing a lot of city driving, a versatile compact is hard to beat. All you have to do is decide what will suit you best, load up the car, and rack up those miles.
Most of the time, parking in the center of Bucaramanga is hassle-free. There's more than enough on and off-street parking. Like in every city, you'll have to observe the parking rules. Make sure you pay any applicable fees and you adhere to any time restrictions.
As with most places, roads get busy in the morning and afternoon rush hours. However, thanks to its smaller population of about 571,800, traffic congestion isn't a huge issue in Bucaramanga.
More often than not, your chosen rental company will bill the fined amount to your credit card. Alternatively, the company may provide your contact details to local law enforcement agencies so they can send a fine directly to you.
