KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in La Paz

  • Renting cheap car rentals in La Paz has a number of advantages over alternative transportation options. Firstly, it allows for greater flexibility in terms of exploring the city and its surroundings, without having to rely on public transport schedules or routes. Additionally, using La Paz car rentals can be more cost-effective than hiring a taxi or using ride-share services if you plan to visit multiple destinations. Rental cars also enable you to visit places like the nearby Valle de la Luna (Moon Valley), the archaeological site of Tiwanaku, the Yungas region, and Lake Titicaca.
  • La Paz El Alto International Airport (LPB) is the main airport serving the city of La Paz, Bolivia. The airport is located approximately 7 miles southwest of the city center of La Paz. There are several rental car companies located at the airport, including Avis, Hertz, Europcar, and Localiza. These rental car offices are located in the main terminal of the airport, which is Terminal A. There is no airport shuttle specifically dedicated to the car rental offices, but travelers can easily walk from the airport terminal to the car rental offices located in the same building.
  • Driving cheap car rentals in La Paz can be particularly challenging due to the city's steep hills, narrow roads, and frequent traffic congestion. Many of the streets in the city's historic center are one-way, and drivers should be prepared to navigate tight corners and steep inclines. The driving culture in La Paz can be quite aggressive, with drivers often taking risks and disobeying traffic laws. Drivers should be prepared to navigate around buses, taxis, trucks, and pedestrians who may be jaywalking or crossing the road unexpectedly.
  • Traffic can be heavy during certain times of the day in La Paz, particularly during rush hour, which is typically from 7 am to 9 am and from 5 pm to 7 pm. The roads that are most affected by rush hour traffic in La Paz are the main thoroughfares in and around the city center, including Avenida Arce and Avenida Camacho. These roads can become heavily congested during peak traffic times, making it difficult to navigate cheap car rentals in La Paz and slowing down travel times. Additionally, the rainy season, which lasts from November to March, can cause roads to become muddy and slippery, making them difficult to navigate even for experienced drivers.
  • Book your car hire in La Paz at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in La Paz?

    When it comes to choosing from La Paz car rentals, there are a few factors to consider. The city's streets can be narrow, steep, and congested, so a compact car may be more maneuverable and easier to park in some areas. Additionally, given the city's high altitude and varied terrain, it's important to choose a vehicle with a powerful engine and good suspension. With all this in mind, we would recommend renting a compact SUV for driving in La Paz.

Free parking lots are available in several areas of the city, but they can be difficult to find, and spaces may be limited.

You have to pay a deposit of $2000 . I was only renting the car for one day .. usually I get full coverage everywhere I’ve rented a car but they went overboard with that . I don’t know if that’s in all of Bolivia but it was crazy

We were unable to successfully use the car and had to return it after only a few minutes due to the car not being in good order It was not able to safely shift most likely due to a wearing clutch up a hill

Car hire insurance in La Paz

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some La Paz 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 La Paz.
