LAND TRANSPORTATION

One can travel from the main Argentine cities to smaller urban centres making connections with land services such as bus, microbus, taxi or remis.

CAR
Across the highway:
the privatisation programs have had an effect in the improvement of the country's highway system. The highways are tolled. Some rural dirt roads can become practically unsurpassable during the rainy season. Buses are more reliable than trains for long distance travels in general. Automobiles have the wheel on the right side and one drives on the right side of the road.

There is an important paved and properly signalised road system to move around within our territory (if you are an alien you need to have an international registration).

You can use your regular driver license in Argentina; however, it is much better if you have an international driver permit. You need to be over 18 years of age in order to drive in the country.

Regarding the conditions of the road system, highways are ample and fast around the main cities, although they tend to narrow and lose their quality the farther they go from the main

urban centres. The rural roads that follow are not in very good conditions, nor are they well signalised.

You have to take into account that the highways are private, therefore you need to pay a toll every once in a while.

Although there are plenty of gas stations in all the cities and on the highways, try to fill your tank with anticipation if you are planning on going through rural roads, since it is hard to find gas stations in isolated areas. Gasoline in Argentina is called nafta. It is advisable not to drive above the speed limit and to obey the traffic signs when driving in Argentina. Although bribery is rather common, it is advisable not to argue if you are fined and to accept the ticket.

It is mandatory to use the seatbelt, even though it is very much ignored. It is forbidden to make a left turn on avenues, unless there is a traffic light with an arrow indicating the possibility of doing so.

The speed limit is of 40 k/h on the streets and of 60 k/h on the avenues of every city. The speed limit on freeways is of 120 k/h, while it is of 80 k/h on the highways. You can drive from Argentina to the neighbouring countries, and there are roads bound for Chile, Bolivia, Paraguay and the Brazilian border. There are border controls at each one of them where you will be asked to produce your passport, a visa (in case it is required to enter the country) and the registration of the vehicle.

Although renting a car offers tourists more flexibility, one must take into account that renting a car in Argentina is usually expensive. Most of the cities and tourist destinations have car rentals; and one can drop the vehicle in another city depending on the firm.

Documentation:
an international driver license, which must be stamped at the offices of Argentina's Automobile Club, is required to drive in the country.

TAXIS

There are 32000 taxis in the City of Buenos Aires. They are identifiable for their yellow tops and fenders and the black colour on the rest of the body. The tariff is shown on a taximeter that marks $ 1.12 at the beginning of the ride and adds $ 0.14 every two hundred metres (two blocks approximately).

The taxi service is pretty common in Argentine cities, and in Buenos Aires alone the number of taxis is of up to 32000; so they are very easy to catch in every corner throughout the city. Considering that Argentina is an expensive country, the use of this means of transportation is pretty suitable, all the more if you are travelling with other people. The fee is paid at the end of the ride according to the time taken and the distance covered. Try and board taxis with radio communication sets for your own safety; also check the plate numbers and watch the driver carefully.

There are radio taxi companies answering to requests made on the phone, and they pick their passengers wherever they are; it is a safer alternative for certain places and at certain hours.

Taxis are available in most of the cities and large towns, and they can be taken on the streets or at the taxi stops. They can be sorted out due to their black colour with yellow roofs; you must pay what the taximeter reads in most of the cities; although, they have a surcharge after 23:00 hours in many cities of the country. If you wish to get to the airport, ask for the price before hoping into a cab, for it may change from one company to another and also depends on which city you are in, and where in that city.

REMIS:
The remis are a kind of taxi in which the price of the service is agreed in advance, in opposition to the regular taxis. In this way the driver makes sure the passenger has the money to pay for the ride and, on the other hand, the passenger can be confident that the driver will take the shortest way to their destination. The remis are usually cheaper than the taxis, the agreements are settled by talking and one of the most common routes is that leading to the airport. The remis offers a similar service to that of the radio taxis, with the difference that the vehicles are private cars and the drivers charge based on the number of kilometres to be covered.
