My reservation was not there and I didn't get a car. The agent was rude and he didn't honor the deal I showed him. I had to cancel and rent from another place
7.2 Good13 Aug. 2016
Overall car was in adequate condition. Everything worked perfectly well except efficiency of brakes. Media system had a USB socket to connect smartphone, which was great to listening to music.Poor brakes. Lots of scratches on car creates additional dispute problems later. Petrol tank was not full and but half full so was difficult to return car with same fuel level.

I cancelled the booking because it was a fraud
2.0 Mediocre6 Apr. 2018
They cancelle my reservation the day of pickup and lied about it.I arrived in Jordan and went to the sixt rental booth to pick up my car. Approaching the desk I immediately noticed a large commotion from a group of about 10 people. Upon entering the group, it became evident that they had overbooked their inventory and were beginning to make people wait upwards of 6 hours for a car. When it was finally my turn in line, I politely told the sales manager my booking reference number for the car. He spends about 20 seconds looking it up on the computer before turning towards me telling me ‘my booking had been cancelled’. After my expected reaction of how?, what?, when?, why?, the sales manager broke eye contact with me and looking at his feet in shame muttered that ‘their office no longer accepts booking from agencies.’ Ok guy, you don’t accept bookings from agencies? You don’t honor kayak bookings? Really? So you cancelled my 2 week prior reservation without any sort of communication and there isn’t anything you can do for me because you over booked your fleet and there are not enough cars to meet resercarions. Dear sixt, Next time you lie to my face. Please look me in the eyes.

4.0 Okay20 Feb. 2017
Not a great experienceWere able to supply a child car seat last minute. Airport location was convenientPickup of the car took an extended amount of time. Reserved a Kia Optima, got a Renault. There was a nice looking Kia Optima 2 cars down from the Renault they gave us. The car was in poor condition, scratches all over, a hole in the rear bumper, faint smoke smell inside. When we booked the Kia it specifically stated the Kia is technologically advanced. The Renault was not. Couldn't connect my phone to the sound system, no USB charger that you would expect in a car that was stated as technologically advanced. I would not use them again

The staff was helpful, pick up was relatively easyDrop off was confusing, vehicle had seen better days—it was dented and had stains on the seats. It was also a bit confusing about the size of the vehicle—we ended up in a smaller vehicle than we thought we were getting for six people.

1.9 Horrible22 Sep. 2021
When returning the car, the guy at the desk was extremely rude and unpleasant and he forced us to pay another day just because we returned the car after 10 days slightly later (according to the returning flight), including the insurance. The petrol was not full (as it should be) when taking the car, just 1/4 , we returned with plus minus 1/4 too and again he way telling us that we have slightly less petrol. So stupid - only full to full works, how otherwise one can exactly estimate the petrol tank content for arrival. Very unpleasant experience overall. Never more Europcar in Amman

1.9 Horrible1 Aug. 2021
Car was fine. We made a single day reservation and waited along with another group renting for an hour for someone to open the office. Our reservation was for 8 am, we didn’t get a car until 10. We had the same issue with the return. We were bringing the car back at 8 pm, the office hours said open until 9 pm, when we arrived it was closed. We called and were told to bring it back in the morning at 10 am. We said we couldn’t because of work commitments and then waited a total of 35 minutes for someone to check car out so we could leave. Obsurd.
1.9 Horrible25 Jul. 2021
We had a flat tire and despite calling Avis more than a dozen times, we were unable to get through to talk to anyone. We had to eliminate long distance trips as a result. Horrible experience.
1.9 Horrible25 Jul. 2021
They didn't have a car. And they didn't gave me my reserved car. Due to this inconvenience, I had to rent a car from another company in the airport for double the price of Avis and triple the normal price of the same car from somewhere else. This was the worst experience ever. And Avis should bare the consequences.
1.9 Horrible23 Jul. 2021
No car was available, no one answered any calls prior to pickup time. Waste of time!

Poor experienceCar was tiny and dirty. For the price we paid it was not good. Inside and outside the car was dirty. The radio didn't work and neither did the high beams. We were stopped by the police who told us that the car's license had expired. Very expensive for a terrible car
9.6 Excellent19 Sep. 2016
New carBit of a wait at the counter and no GPS available. T-Mobile users beware; Jordan is not on the international plan. Data could cost thousands of $$
2.8 Mediocre19 Sep. 2016
Bad Rental experienceNothing !!!When I first arrived to their airport office, they told me that they haven't received my booking and that they are in short of cars and they don't have any cars to provide , I kept arguing showing they the confirmation email received from kayak , but they kept saying they haven't received any. after long discussion , it turned out to me that someone in their head office didnt copy the booking request from the portal to their system and therefore they don't see my booking info. eventually they gave me an old car with many body scratch and they told me that is the only care they can provide , take it or leave it ! it took me over 60 minutes to receive a bad car !
2.8 Mediocre15 Sep. 2016
reservation was ready. pick and drop off was smooth with no problems.Car was not in good condition. It was not safe to drive. the right door doesn't close and it is a threat to the personal safty of the front passenger seat. Avis should look at better maintaining their cars, and not to allow unsafe vehicles to be rented to customers.
7.2 Good17 Jul. 2016
Customer service is useless.the car was good as expected, the sales person was nice, But calling the office or the customer service over the phone is terrible! they dont pick up the phones if they gave you a correct number! they charge me 75 Eur an hour after i delivered the car even though they told me that everything is oky with the car and i dont have to pay any extra, and when i try to contact them nobody pick up the phone!!! this is really un professional!

Car hire excess insurance in Amman

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Amman car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Amman.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Amman car rental.

Top tips for hiring a car in Amman

  • Jordan is beautiful, but its public transportation system is lacking and only covers its main cities. Therefore, renting a car is the smartest move for tourists visiting the area, especially if you want to see attractions like the ancient ruins of Petra, Mujib Nature Reserve, or the Dead Sea.
  • Amman Airport serves much of the country of Jordan. It is a very large airport with lots of amenities and services including numerous car hire agencies. With offices in the arrival terminal, you can quickly rent a car from many well-known car hire companies such as Avis, Budget, National, or Thrifty.
  • Although it is a small country, Jordan is well-developed with a strong highway system and modern roads. You’ll find it easy to drive on the roads; however, laws for driving are not so strict. For example, many drivers do not use turn signals or wear seat belts. It’s also important to note that road signs are in Arabic, which can be a challenge.
  • Traffic in Amman can get quite busy during commuting or rush hours. It can get busiest downtown from about 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m., as most governmental employees must be to work by 8 a.m. It starts to get busy for the evening commute at 2:30 p.m., but typically slows down at about 4:30 or 5:00 p.m. In the morning, traffic is most hectic coming into downtown. And in the evening, it is busiest going away from downtown.

  • When you are coasting on the motorways, you can travel up to speeds of 75 mph (or 120 km) all around the country of Jordan. If you are driving through the city, the speed limit will depend on where you are. In residential neighborhoods, the speed limit maxes out at 31 mph (50 km). Around shopping malls, restaurants, and grocery stores, the speed limit is typically 38 mph (60 km).

  • A gallon of petrol in Amman will cost you $4.61 USD (or 3.27 Jordanian Dinars). Premium petrol costs slightly more, while diesel is a little less. The cost for fuel overall is more than the average in the United States but less than in other countries such as France, Pakistan, or India.

  • If you get too close to the center of the city, finding parking can be difficult during the week. But if you are lucky, you might find a free spot on the street. Still, to save you some time and frustration, choose a hotel with free parking or park on one of the residential streets and walk to your downtown destination. Some good spots include parking lots on Alshabsog Street or outside of the Citadel ticket office.
