Car rental in Lima to Ica and Nazca?

Postby uday029 » Sun Aug 19, 2018 11:48 am

Is it advisable to rent a car for trip to Ica and Nazca lines? We would like to have the flexibility of stopping/pulling over for photography purposes. Plan is to rent a car in Lima and travel to Paracas, Ica, Huacachina, and eventually to Nazca Lines. I think having your own car gives quite a bit of flexibility specially if we want to arrive/depart early or late to a place.

We have driven car in places like India and Mexico without any issues. What car rental companies would you recommend?

Thanks.

Do you have to have a Peruvian driver's license or can you drive as a tourist?
What are the fees for the vehicle & SOAT?
Thanks.

You can rent a car as a tourist! I would book with one of the european "booking sites" as they seem to include all insurance at no additional cost.
