Driving Tips

Driving Tips

On the Road

Driving is on the right in Argentina, and left turns are not allowed on main roads unless the road signs say you can do so. Crossroads tend to have no traffic lights or stop signs so they can be confusing. Drivers here simply sound their horns on approach, and right of way goes to the first driver to get there!

Speed Limits

Speed limits in Argentina are measured in kilometres per hour. You can drive up to 40 km/h in residential areas, 60 km/h on main roads, and 110 km/h in rural areas. Speed limits on the motorway are 120 to 130 km/h.

Traffic Laws

You are advised to carry your driving licence with you when driving in Argentina, although you will be given time to produce it if necessary. On the spot fines are illegal here, so if someone tries to issue you with one, you shouldn't pay, no matter how official they look, as they are trying to con you. The alcohol limit in Argentina is lower than in the UK, and if you are caught drink-driving you will be arrested and charged. Your car will be impounded.

Road Signage

Road signs here are written in Spanish, but many are pictograms similar to the road signs used in the UK, so they're easy to understand. Motorway signs are shown in white on a green background.


You are only allowed to park in the direction of the traffic in Argentina. There are plenty of publicly and privately operated car parks and pay and display meters in all the main towns and cities, with No Parking areas clearly marked. Parking tends to be relatively cheap, but if you do park illegally your car will be towed away and you can expect a heavy fine.

Major Routes

The road network in Argentina is complex, and while there are a few motorways, most routes tend to be dual carriageways. These run through both urban and rural areas. The motorways tend to be concentrated around the capital, Buenos Aires, with the busiest of these being the National Route A9. This is a toll road which runs from Buenos Aires through Rosario to Cordoba.

Crossing Borders

It is my 2nd time using Sixt-Rent-a-Car in Argentina and the service was top to nothing. These guys are ready to help you and solve any possible problem (...and I had a few of them). Special mention to Francisco and also his colleague Rodrigo. The car was as promised, not surprises. Pick-up and return also stress free. Absolutely for recommend.

Great Experience! Although it is located a short walk distance from the Airport Exit door (not too far at all) the staff was great! They are located in a small orange booth over by the parking lot along side other companies. They were very friendly and throughly explained everything about my rental. Car was as expected. I did take advantage of the full coverage and tolls since it was my first time driving in Argentina. Quick and easy! Thank you! Had an amazing experience.
