Can I leave the country with a rented car?


One of the greatest advantages of renting a car is that this service gives us the possibility to move according to our tastes and desires. Many times, our desires encourage us to find new latitudes, especially in a land full of postcard landscapes such as Argentina and their neighboring countries. As sometimes the ignorance of the necessary bureaucracy to leave the country with a rented car can stop us a bit to live this adventure.
The first thing you need to know is that there are two types of documents needed: those which demonstrate your identity and your management capacity; and those which confirm that the car you are using doesn’t have any inconvenience to circulate. Regarding the first ones, if you are citizen of any countries that includes the MERCOSUR (Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay and Venezuela) or it’s Associated States (Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru) you will be recognized the validity of some documents of personal identification, as to travel document. If you are citizen of other countries, otherwise, you will need a valid passport to travel through the States Parties. This is in terms to confirm your identity.

To drive in any MERCOSUR State Party, on the other hand, you only need the current driver’s license issued by the driver’s origin country, regardless nationality. Also remember that you must always follow the rules and regulations of the National Traffic Code of the country you are visiting. Likewise, you should keep in mind that in many countries the tolls payments can only be paid with the national currency, for which we recommend you to have a small amount for it or ask for the payment options of the country you are going.

Regarding the other requirements types, the ones with the authorization of the vehicle to circulate in another State Party with a rented vehicle, you will need an Authorization for Circulation in the MERCOSUR (ACM), document that includes the main data of the vehicle rental contract, also those related to your identification and insurance.
