comment Uyuni to San Pedro and not viceversa
There was no extra charge for my bag, but I did buy the ticket for the bus between the border and San Pedro from the Uyuni operator, I think it was 8 or 10 USD In 2009. Other people on the tour who did the full circle back to Uyuni also took all their luggage with them on the tour.

comment Uyuni to San Pedro and not viceversa
I think we arrived in town around 4 or 5 (pm) and had enough time to shop around for a tour and find a place to stay. You should be fine. I would try to book the tour the day before and also find some people to go with. The tour operators may throw you in with a party of 5 which may not be fun if they stick together or don't speak your language(s). I was with a friend an Aussie guy and three Swiss girls, that was perfect.

comment Do I need to get a visa before flying for one month holiday to Peru and Bolivia?
No visa required for Chile for EU Citiziens either, as a matter of fact as a Dutch Citizien you don't need any visa in South America, while other Europeans need just one for Surinam

comment Visiting salt flats in Bolivia from Chile
Do you want to visit any of the many salt flats in Chile, or Salar de Uyuni which is in Bolivia and takes a day to get to from the Chilean border.

comment Where to sleep in the Salar of Uyuni?
Do you plan to drive yourself? Otherwise your tour operator usually arranges the accommodation.

comment How fast may you drive on the Autobahn?
@DanNeely - Outside of urban areas, there are no lights on the Autobahn. Your own headlights may not reach far enough but you can still see the rear-lights of the vehicles in front.
