KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Arequipa

  • Using car hires in Arequipa offers various benefits compared to public transportation. First, you'll be free to travel on your terms, without having to follow fixed schedules with public transport. Using car hire in Arequipa offers convenience with space, especially when you are travelling with luggage and a group of people. You can also visit several attraction areas in the city, including Yanahuara, Sabandia Mill, Andean Volcanoes, and Toro Muerto Petroglyphs, or take day trips to various attractions accessible by car, including Colca Canyon, the town of Chivay, and Misti Volcano.
  • Arequipa Rodriguez Ballon International Airport (AQP) has car hire companies, including Avis and Hertz, from where you can hire a car to use in the city. The car hires in Arequipa Airport are located in the Arrivals area of the terminal building, just past the Baggage Claim area. You must have a valid driving licence, be above 21 years old, have a passport and identification card, and other relevant documents to hire a car from the Arequipa car hire companies. The pick-up location for the car hires at the airport, just outside the terminal building.
  • Arequipa is in a high-altitude area. Therefore, if you need to become more familiar with driving in high altitudes, ensure you take breaks to avoid sickness. Arequipa has narrow streets, especially around the city centre, so be cautious when driving and look out for oncoming vehicles in traffic. Pay attention to pedestrians who cross the road without warning. Traffic in Arequipa is unpredictable; therefore, be prepared for motorcycles weaving through traffic and sudden lane changes. Consider practising defensive driving techniques to manoeuvre easily through Arequipa roads.
  • Arequipa experiences rush hours from 07:30 to 09:30, and 17:30 to 19:30 during work commute periods. Avoid routes leading to the city centre, including Avenida Kennedy and Avenida Ejército, and major avenues, such as Avenida Dolores, Avenida Parra, and Avenida Venezuela. Traffic may be heavier in Arequipa during holidays and special events, especially on roads leading to popular tourist destinations. Since Arequipa is in a high-altitude area, around 2335 meters (7661 ft), if you are not familiar with diving in high-altitude areas, ensure you hydrate and be keen on any signs of altitude sickness.
  • Book your rental car in Arequipa at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in Arequipa are around 68% cheaper than other car types, on average

Since Arequipa experiences heavy traffic, having a compact or mid-size car will enable you to manoeuvre through traffic easily. Finding a parking space in downtown Arequipa may be challenging, so as there are limited parking spaces in and around the city centre, hiring a compact or mid-size car will allow you access to small parking spaces.

    The default speed limits in Arequipa are 30 km/h (20 mph) in urban areas, including city streets, residential areas, and the downtown areas, and 60 km/h (35 mph) on open roads. Check out for speed signs to drive within the required speed limits. Arequipa has speed cameras in particular areas in the city to monitor driving speeds and maintain safety, especially in high-risk speed violation areas. Ensure you stay within the required speed limit to avoid penalties.

  • Where are the best places to park in Arequipa?

    When using a hire car from one of the car hires in Arequipa, consider acquainting yourself with various parking spaces around the city. You can save some money by considering free parking, including residential areas, shopping centres, parks and open spaces, side streets and outskirts of the city centre. Consider Parqueo Real, Parqueo Santa Marta, Parqueo Yanahuara, Parqueo Mercado de San Camilo, and Parqueo Mall Plaza Arequipa for paid parking. Paid parking in Arequipa costs about S/2 to S/10 per hour, equivalent to £0.43 to £2.14, respectively. If you are visiting the city centre where parking may be limited, consider alternative parking outside the city centre and using public transport options, including buses and taxis, to save on parking costs.

Pesimo servicio, al alquilar la unidad via la pagina web, a pesar que cancele por adelantado el servicio incluyendo kilometraje extra y seguro del auto, me cobraron nuevamente el seguro el cual tuve que pagar al devolver la unidad en Arequipa. Se aprovecharon que no me acorde que el seguro ya lo habia pagado pero la excusa fue que debido que el auto lo alquile via Kayak y no de manera directa por Sixt el seguro me lo tenian que cobrar igual...pesimo servicio, no me solucionaron el problema...a mi como usuario es totalmente transparente por que via adquiero el servicio mas aun si ya cancele al totalidad de este...no recomiendo esta empresa a nadie.

Cons:

They advertise as being in the Arequipa airport. They're not, they're in downtown. And they don't tell you till you get there that you're responsible for a car wash or they charge you for it. I've never had that when I've rented a car at other places.
