KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Barranquilla

  • Cheap car hire in Barranquilla gives you the freedom to explore the city on your own schedule. Barranquilla is a city with many attractions that are spread out, so having a car will make it easier for you to get around. For example, you can head to the beaches of Puerto Colombia or take a drive to the fishing village of La Boquilla. You can also explore some of the historic monuments and museums in the city, like the Museo del Caribe and Castillo de Salgar.
  • Cartagena Rafael Nunez Airport (CTG) has one terminal, and the car hire offices are located at the Arrivals area. The names of the car hire companies operating at the airport include Avis, Budget, Europcar, and Hertz. Visitors can hire a car at the airport or book in advance using the online reservation system offered by car hire companies. Upon arriving at the airport, visitors can walk to the car hire offices to pick up their hire car. It is also recommended to check with the car company regarding any additional documents required such as a valid driving licence or an insurance certificate.
  • One unique rule to look out for when driving cheap car hire in Barranquilla is the Pico y Placa ordinance, which restricts the use of private vehicles during peak hours on specific days, according to the last number on the licence plate. Violating this ordinance can result in fines and confiscation of the vehicle. Additionally, it is essential to be vigilant about pedestrians, as they may cross the road without warning, and also jaywalking is common in the city. Signage in Barranquilla is generally in Spanish, so visitors may want to familiarise themselves with Spanish traffic signs before driving.
  • The city of Barranquilla is known for its heavy traffic and congested roads, particularly during rush hour, which are usually from 7:00 to 9:00 and 17:00 to 19:00 on weekdays. During these times, many roads leading to and from the city centre are heavily affected, and traffic can be slow-moving. Some of the most heavily congested routes during these times include Calle 30, Carretera 40, and Carrera 46.

No pude alquilar el carro con álamo por que no aceptaban la tarjeta de crédito que tenía y también por que tienen que congelar el cupo de la tarjeta cuando el resto de rentas de carro solo te congela un monto relacionado con el valor del costo del alquiler más no el cuatruple del costo

Car hire insurance in Barranquilla

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Barranquilla car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend being aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Barranquilla.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a non-deductible option to your Barranquilla car hire.
