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.

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.

comment How can I find the cheapest private hotel room (as opposed to a bed in a dorm) using online tools?
In my tests on HostelWorld I saw the same listed hostels for various room types. But I can now can confirm that it makes a difference. Make sure you sort by 'Price'.

Go go Hostelworld, check the room type 'Single Room' (only), this doesn't make a difference to the results, they are still full of dorms because these places also offer singles.
