Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Santiago?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Santiago. Economy or compact automobiles are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have more room and be a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their vacation can choose a higher-end model like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Does Chile require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in Chile. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide.

We suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your National rental with the needle at "F". If you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to National.
