Egypt car hire information

The main thing to know while driving rental cars in Egypt is that drivers tend to make their own traffic rules. Lanes aren't always clearly delineated, and what may seem like a two-lane street could be used as a three or four-lane street. There isn't an abundance of traffic lights in Cairo, and some of them may be out of order or ignored by drivers. The main solution is to stay vigilant and comply with regulations thoroughly. Specifically, passengers must always wear seat belts in the front. Mobile phones must not be used except when hands-free, and children under seven must not travel in the front seat. Furthermore, it's mandatory to carry a yellow triangle in case of emergency, along with a first-aid kit, so check that your car hire provider supplies them. Be aware that pedestrians always have the right of way, even when not walking on zebra crossings. Finally, certain roads in Egypt are forbidden to foreign nationals, many of them in the Sinai peninsula, so do your research before driving.

While the minimum driving age is 18, you must be over 25 to rent a car in Egypt. Car rental companies will want to see your driving licence, a form of ID, and a credit or debit card. Some might accept cash deposits, and they may additionally ask to see an International Driving Permit (IDP) for foreign driving licences that are not in English. Note that you can only drive your car hire for six months on a foreign driving license; beyond this, you must apply for a local driving license with the relevant authority. If you're pulled over for a random police check, you should carry your passport, driving licence, car rental paperwork, and Egyptian visa. Finally, we recommend foreigners not to drive at night, especially in non-urban areas, due to the unpredictable driving habits of other drivers and animals roaming the road.

Cairo can become highly congested, as it's home to millions of vehicles. The centre of the metropolitan area is particularly difficult to navigate with rental cars at morning and evening rush hour, with lanes being shared by cars, micro-buses, lorries, motorcycles, and pedestrians at the same time. It is completely normal to hear consistent honking in both high and low traffic and to be cut off by drivers speeding to reach the junction. Expect high traffic around popular tourist attractions, such as the Giza Pyramids site, which you may consider visiting by taxi instead, as parking for rental cars can be difficult to find. Other big cities, like Alexandria and Luxor, can also get congested at peak times. In rural areas, you're likely to get clear roads. Just remember to stay hydrated as it can get really hot and dry.

Following the Nile by car hire in Egypt can be an unforgettable experience. Starting with the Tanta-Alexandria Road exploring the rich landscape around the Nile delta, you've got a long but worthwhile drive down south to Aswan. Circling Cairo and catching a glimpse of the Giza Pyramids to the west is a must, and you could also stop at the ancient site of Saqqara nearby. Fayoum is a few miles off the Nile route but worth visiting for its desert oasis on the edge of Lake Qarun. As you journey on desert roads following the Nile, you can stop to visit ancient sites such as the famed Abydos and Dendera temples, between Sohag and Quena. Luxor, home to the Valley of the Kings and Karnak, is worth stopping in to visit for at least a day before driving onto Aswan, where you can witness the spectacular view of the Nile flowing into Lake Nasser.
