Location information for Santiago

Introduction

Santiago de Chile is the capital of Chili. It's the political, economical and social center of the country with a large supply of museums, events, theaters and restaurants. Because of its central location it's also a good basis to visit other parts of Chili.

Population

About 5.5 million people live in the entire urban area of the Chilean capital and surroundings.

Location

Santiago is centrally located in Chili in a wide and fertile valley. To the east of this valley lies the Andes, to the west the Chilean Coastal Range. East of town, on the border with Argentina, lies the Tupungato volcano (6570 m).

Economy

Chilean economy has grown steadily in the last few years and this turned Santiago into one of the most modern cities of Latin America. Many multinationals have their regional headquarters in the city and Santiago is also an important financial center. Because Santiago is the capital, the national government also provides much employment.

Airports

Santiago de Chili's airport is situated just northwest of the city. Merino Benítez International Airport is easily reachable by rental car via one of the city's freeways (Costanera Norte or Vespucio Norte). Outside of rush hour it doesn't take more than fifteen minutes to get from the center to the airport.

Public Transport

Santiago has an ultramodern public transportation system. First of all the city has an efficient metro system that is constantly being extended. At the moment there are five lines, with which you can quickly reach most districts of the Chilean capital. The metro trains stop at 11 p.m. but then (aboveground) busses take over along the same route. City bus transportation is also extremely modern and efficient. For all public transportation you need a so-called Bip! card. You can buy it at many places.

Traffic and Parking

Although Santiago is a busy business and tourist city, you will have no problems finding your way around in a rental car. The roads are excellent and signposting is good. Around the center there's a beltway and part of the main roads through the center are underground, underneath the river Mapocho.

Finding a free parking space in the street can be a problem but fortunately there are many parking garages in and around the city center where you can safely park your car.

Hotels

The Chilean capital offers a huge supply of accommodation. The budget category is well represented, but midrange hotels and more luxurious accommodations are also widely available. Santiago is however a city that draws many business travelers and in an increasing degree tourists. We therefore recommend booking your accommodation in Santiago well in advance.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by EasyTerra Car Rental? at this location
