Here’s a snapshot of prices for items you might buy on holiday in Chile, based on our most recent survey of costs in long-haul destinations.
Costs are for Santiago, Chile and based on prices at the time of our last Post Office Travel Money Long Haul Holiday Report in 2022. Meal cost is based on three courses for two people with a bottle of house wine.
It’s important to carry cash as plastic is mainly used in established businesses like hotels, car rental firms and higher-end restaurants. ATMs are usually quite easy to find.
Prices can vary quite broadly across the country but the capital, Santiago, was among the most expensive of all destinations surveyed in our Long Haul Holiday Report.
Beware of charges when withdrawing cash or using plastic, as these can be high relative to other countries.
High-value bills can be tricky to break so it’s useful to have smaller notes and change on you.
