What do I need to rent a car in Chile as US citizen while traveling there? Do I need just my license?
If I only drive automatic in US, with basic knowledge of manual transmission, but not active use, can I still rent a manual?
I'm an American living in Chile, and have rented a car here many times. They ask for ID (your US passport if you are a tourist), your drivers license, and a major credit card.
You can rent a manual transmission car if you want. There is no test, or anything. They assume you can drive one, since most people outside the U.S. can. However, automatics are also available (and are common) at most rental companies.
