Dear Suzi Traveler, Congratulations for Buying a Vehicle !
All highways in Santiago are toll routes and you can get fines by driving them without a tag.
You can get a daily pass here : https://www.pasediario.cl/ or at a copec gas station or at a servipag paying station. The daily pass is great because it also covers some toll routes outside of santiago. The daily pass also works in some tolls outside of Santiago, when you get to a peaje(payment stop before a toll route) try to go through the tag lane and see if the gate opens automatically.
Other option is to get the electronic device put in the car, this can be paid online or at a servipag paying station or at the unimark(supermarket) automatic machine for paying bills. In order to not go on a toll route on the way to getting the tag, we recommend going there by Uber or taxi (take an uber to Sta María 5621 vitacura) The Costanera Norte offices are located in the Copec gas station. You will need your RUT and contract you received at the notary when buying the car.
Don’t forget to bring back the tag after selling the car or to buy a daily pass before coming back to santiago.
show them RUT and contract for owning the car.
