Top tips for renting a car in Egypt

  • Renting a car in Egypt is your best travel option because local taxis tend to be older and slower. Because it is a big country, visiting more than one city takes time, and there is not much public transport. You have freedom and flexibility with your own rental car, which means that you can explore the country in your own time.
  • Be very careful when you encounter traffic lights, as they are often ignored by locals. Navigating the Egyptian roads is simple, since most road signs are in both English and Arabic. However, you should consider renting a SatNav from your car hire agency, as some rural roads have poor signage.
  • You are required by law to wear a seatbelt when traveling in a car in Egypt, but child safety seats are not mandatory. You are also not allowed to use your mobile phone when driving; only a hands-free kit is permitted.
  • Depending on the type of driving that you plan to do, you should choose a proper vehicle type accordingly. If you simply need to get from the airport to your hotel, a spacious hatchback or saloon would be perfect. In the desert or the Nile Valley, you will be better off with a comfortable saloon or a four-wheel drive/SUV. However, if you plan to take day trips to historic sites such as Giza and Luxor or explore the center of Cairo, a more compact car would be ideal.
