Ground Transportation in Chile

The Cruise Holidays International Concierge Desk has many contacts in Chile. Our sources have advised that the area around Santiago is experiencing fuel shortages, thus affecting the availability and price of taxis. Travelers may find themselves in Santiago at the airport or Valparaiso at the pier without ground transportation.

We advise our clients to book their transfers with the cruise line. In this way, the cruise lines will have some responsibility in getting the clients to or from the ship. If transfers are not available through the cruise line, contact the Cruise Holidays International Concierge Desk for help in securing ground transportation. The desk can be reached by sending an email to

Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Chile at this time. We at Cruise Holiday will monitor the situation and relay important information as needed.
