KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Cairo

  • Car hire in Cairo makes sense; having a car at your disposal makes you less dependent on often unreliable and uncomfortable public transport systems or frequently over-priced, over-organised tours. A car will prove especially liberating if you’d like to get out of the city and visit attractions outside Cairo itself.
  • There are a number of options for Cairo car hire available at the airport. Each terminal at Cairo International Airport (CAI) has car hire offices in the arrivals hall. Companies represented include Avis, Budget, Alamo, Europcar, Hertz and Sixt. It is generally cheaper to book online before arrival, and the agency can meet you at the airport to complete the procedures and get you to your car.
  • When considering car hire in Cairo, be aware that driving in Cairo can take some getting used to. Traffic rules are not necessarily obeyed, or even heeded, and driving in the city can seem a bit like a free-for-all. All kinds of vehicles travel on all kinds of roads, and you will need to keep your wits about you. Watch out for pedestrians and peddlers who stand in busy roads trying to sell various items to cars stuck in traffic. The rule of thumb for driving in Cairo is ‘expect the unexpected’.
  • Driving in Cairo can be challenging if you are used to driving in Australia, Europe or America, and there are several things you will need to keep in mind. The first issue to be aware of is that the rules of the road seem to mean little in practice, plus Cairo traffic can seem chaotic and unregulated. Even traffic lights can seem more like a suggestion than a legally mandated system for regulating traffic. One-way streets are often one-way only in theory, and you will need to keep a high level of situational awareness to deal with other motorists, pedestrians and random hazards on the road. Traffic jams can be fairly frequent, and the use of car horns can be enthusiastic. Driving in the city may take patience and a degree of boldness, but people do get used to it.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Cairo for $38 or less
  • Book your car hire in Cairo at least 3 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Cairo are around 0% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Standard hire cars in Cairo are around 58% more expensive than other car types, on average

FAQs about hiring a car in Cairo

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Cairo?

    When it comes to car hire in Cairo, choosing a compact car makes a lot of sense on several levels. Compact cars can be a lot cheaper, usually get better fuel mileage and will reduce your hassles in the chaos of Cairo traffic. Larger cars will have trouble navigating the crowded, often narrow, city streets and can be a nightmare to park.

  • What’s the speed limit in Cairo?

    The official speed limits for Cairo are 60 km/h in the city, 90 km/h outside the urban area and 100 km/h on highways. Enforcement can be patchy and not all locals may obey the limits, but, as a visitor, you certainly should do your best to adhere to the rules at all times.

  • Where are the best places to park in Cairo?

    Parking can seem chaotic in Cairo, with vehicles apparently parking anywhere they want. Many unofficial ‘parking mafias’ run certain areas as their private parking business and, although these services belong entirely to the black economy, they do work and operate much like official parking systems. There are a number of private car parks around the city, but these may not always be located where you need them to be. One innovative solution is the Rakna app, a mobile app linked to valet parking services around the city. Parking is a recognised problem in the city and something you should bear in mind when considering car hire in Cairo.

  • How much does it cost to hire a car in Cairo?

    On average a car hire in Cairo costs $59 per day.

  • What is the cheapest car hire company in Cairo?

    In the past 72 hours, the cheapest car hires were found at Avis ($29/day), Alamo ($76/day) and Enterprise Rent-A-Car ($105/day). In the last 72 hours the cheapest hire car price was found at Avis Ring Road, Mirage City 11835 (19 kilometres from the city centre).

  • How much is the price of fuel in Cairo?

    The average price of fuel in Cairo is $1.60 per litre over the past 30 days. Filling up a tank of fuel costs between $19 and $25, depending on the car size.

  • What is the most popular car hire in Cairo?

    Standard (Subaru Impreza or similar) is the most frequently booked car hire type in Cairo.

  • Which car hire agencies are at Cairo airport (CAI)?

    Car hire companies onsite at Cairo airport include Autounion Car Rental and Sixt.

  • Which car hire companies will pick you up at Cairo airport (CAI)?

They did not honer my first reservation. I made sure when they called me before I travel that I will be at 11:00 pm and gave them my flight number. When I came out of the arrival gate no one was at their booth. I called there number 3 times but no one answered. I had to leave by taxi at a high rate. I called from my hotel, explained the situation so they promised to keep my reservation to pick up the car at 1pm next day. When I went to the airport, I found they cancelled the reservation. Had to make another reservation at a high prices. It is really a bad situation. They were not a professional car rental. I will not go there again!!!

Pros:

The car was clean and in good working condition.

Cons:

I had to wait about an hour for the person to come with the car. Despite booking the car for 6:00 AM, and calling the day before to confirm I could pick it up at that time, I learned when I arrived that the person with they keys to the car wouldn't come until normal working hours started (8:00 AM). Additionally, the mileage costs were not very good. The extra mileage charges for one day of use were about five times the cost of the rental itself.
