Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best rates on a Calama Dollar car rental?
We try to get you the lowest rates, whether you book. However, reserving ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Be sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car rental in Calama?
Make sure to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Calama's minimum age to rent a car?
Dollar's minimum age to rent a car in Calama is 21. Make sure to review Dollar's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles especially.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Calama?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Calama. Economy or compact vehicles are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Calama trip can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Chile?
In Chile you do need to have insurance before you rent from Dollar. Many major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) usually provide some coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Calama. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Dollar car rental?
Dollar does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. Dollar will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip to Calama. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my Dollar car rental?
We advise a full tank policy. You pick up your Dollar rental topped off. However, if you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Dollar. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Calama definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from Dollar?
Dollar usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your rental at another Dollar. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
