KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Copiapó

  • Copiapo has beautiful natural attractions and many unique places. If you visit the city intending to explore and make many memories, consider booking a car hire in Copiapo. Though there is a bus connection, the fixed schedules and limited routes make them unreliable when travelling through the city. When driving a hire car, you can go to Tornini House Museum Cultural Centre, about 77 km (48 miles) away and Faro de Punta Caldera, approximately 80 km (50 miles) from the city.
  • You'll land at Copiapo Desierto De Atacama Airport (CPO) when visiting Copiapo. Several Copiapo car hire agencies, including Budget, Sixt, Enterprise, and Hertz, are located inside the terminal at the Arrivals Hall near the baggage claim area. You can also find other car hire offices outside the terminal at the car hire centre. You can always use free shuttle services from the terminal to the car hire office. Again, consider booking in advance for a smooth trip.
  • Using a car hire in Copiapo can be tricky because some roads are in poor condition. Again, the streets can be busy and crowded, with many pedestrians crossing. Consider driving slowly for pedestrian safety. In addition, the city has lots of mining activities. So you expect many trucks to drive to and from the mining areas when driving in the city. Also, buses can be aggressive when operating between lanes. Therefore, be careful when navigating the streets and overtaking trucks.
  • Rush hour in Copiapo can be between 07:00 to 09:30 and 15:30 to 20:00. Traffic is mainly caused by trucks going to the mines and commuters going to and from work. You can avoid traffic by starting your journey before traffic. If the city offers alternative routes, consider using them to avoid heavy traffic and delays.
  • Book your car hire in Copiapó at least 2 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy hire cars in Copiapó are around 26% cheaper than other car types, on average

    Most car hire providers in Copiapó offer insurance but the level of protection can differ substantially. If you're unsure whether to get extra protection for your car hire in Copiapó, check out KAYAK's car hire insurance guide.

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Copiapo?

    Because some roads are poor, driving a large car is the best choice. Consider renting an SUV that can navigate poor and uneven roads in the city. In addition, the city is in an arid area. If you plan to drive on roads outside the city, a large car gives you a comfortable journey. However, be careful because some roads lack guardrails and can be tricky when driving a large car on a curve.

  • What’s the speed limit in Copiapo?

    When using a car hire in Copiapo, maintain a speed limit of 56 km/h (35 mph), the city's speed limit. However, the speed limit varies in different zones on the streets. If driving on highways, the maximum speed limit is 12 km/h (75 mph) and 100 km/h (62 mph) on rural roads. The required speed limit is 24 km/h (15 mph) when driving near school zones. The city’s streets have speed limit signs in various places to guide drivers when driving. Consider following the speed limit rules because violating traffic laws could lead to legal trouble and affect your journey.

  • Where are the best places to park in Copiapo?

    Sometimes, finding a parking space in the Copiapo city centre can be challenging. Therefore, hotels in the city, such as Hotel Diego de Almargo, offer safe and ample parking. Before parking a hire car, consider the safety and ease of exit whenever you need to drive out of the city. Some cheap car parks charge cheap rates every 2h, including San Diego 724, which charges 3000 CLP (2.83 GBP), 10 de Julio charges around 2000 CLP (1.89 GBP), Tottus Nataniel, which charges about 3000 CLP (2.83 GBP), and San Isidro 746-758 charges around 4680 CLP (4.43 GBP). If you park in hotels outside the city, you can access the city using city buses.

Pros:

After giving us a car with very poor front tyres they were generous enough to provide a much better car after one day. The exchange went smooth and friendly.
