KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Medellín

  • If you want to make the most out of your time in Medellin, undoubtedly the best way to do it is to rent a car. There is a plethora of wonderful day trips you can make from the city that will transform your vacation into a trip you will never forget. For instance, the lakeside town of Guatape is just 85 km (53 miles) away and it is worth every kilometer driven.
  • Looking to pick up a hire car after your flight to Medellin lands? Travelers with flights landing at José María Córdova International Airport will find the hire car counters on the ground floor of the airport’s main lobby.
  • One thing to keep in mind when driving in Medellin (and Colombia in general), is that there is a strict no drinking and driving policy. It is illegal to drive with a blood alcohol content above 0.04% in Colombia, whereas in the United States the legal limit is 0.08%. To put this in perspective for drivers, just two drinks risks you being over the legal limit. So make sure to drive safely and never drink and drive.
  • Rush hour traffic in Medellin is not the most severe but it can certainly put a damper on your day if you get caught in the heart of it. Drivers looking to avoid the congestion are best off avoiding the road between 6:30 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. and from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. As far as traffic goes, the neighborhoods of El Poblado and El Centro are often some of the most congested areas in the city and are best visited during non-peak traffic hours.
  • Book your car hire in Medellín at least 7 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hire in Medellín are around 39% cheaper than other car types, on average

Pros:

The service at the counter was good and the car was in perfect shape.

Cons:

When I arrive at the airport to pick up my car I was not able to find Hertz anywhere, I had to go out of the airport and still didn’t find it, I started looking online in google maps for the Hertz counter and there wasn’t any Hertz counter at MDE airport, the reservation didn’t had any phone number, and there wasn’t anyone in the airport the knew about Hertz. After making calls to different numbers online, someone from ACE Rent A Car was very friendly and told me that Hertz in MDE was represented by “Localiza rent a car”. This was not indicated at the reservation, neither the airport people were informed about it. Please advice next time, I spend a lot of time looking, and almost had to do another reservation in other rent a car place.

Drop off at Medellìn airport is not obvious! When you’re driving towards the departures area, you need to turn left at a split to enter the lower section of airport which is where all rentals are returned. There is no signage at all. We had to double park at the departures drop-off and go inside the terminal, but the staff member was helpful and took the car from us there. Other than that, no issues at all!
