Self-drive holidays

Break away from the crowds and unleash your sense of adventure with the freedom and flexibility of your own vehicle.


Break away from the crowds and unleash your sense of adventure with the freedom of your own transportation. Discover secluded beauty spots, stop at villages far from the tourist trail, and take your time meandering through winding canyons or beside crystalline fjords: a hire car will give you unrivalled access to corners of Latin America other visitors seldom reach.

These holidays suit those of an independent spirit, who like to travel at their own pace, getting beneath the surface of a destination by exploring it in depth. Meanwhile with the reassurance of expert planning, reservations at carefully-selected hotels, and our support whenever you need it, you can be sure of a smooth journey underpinned by sound organisation and insider knowledge.
