KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Sharm el-Sheikh

  • Choosing a car hire in Sharm El-Sheikh is a great way to explore this beautiful region in your own time and will give you easy access to many popular tourist destinations. Visitors who opt for a Sharm El-Sheikh car hire can drive to attractions, like the Sharm El-Sheikh Safari Park or the King Tut Museum, which are not easily accessible via public transport. Hiring a car in Sharm El-Sheikh also gives you access to the 523 highway, which connects with coastal cities like Dahab and Wasit in 1-2 hours.
  • Picking up your car hire in Sharm El-Sheikh at Sharm El-Sheikh International Airport is the perfect way to get your trip started. Arriving passengers will find a range of Sharm El-Sheik car hire services located at the airport, with some branches situated inside the Arrivals Terminal and others situated just a few minutes' walk away, next to the Taxi Cab Station. Collecting your car hire from Sharm El-Sheikh International will also give you easy access to the city centre, which is just a 5-minute drive from the terminals.
  • Driving is a great way to get around Sharm El-Sheikh and you will generally find that the roads are spacious and well-maintained. However, as driving is a popular way to get around in Sharm El-Sheikh you should also be prepared for the roads to be busy. You should also take special care to follow the speed limits with your car hire in Sharm El-Sheikh as speed radars are common. Visitors may also find local driving customs a bit confusing at times. For instance, buses may stop in the middle of the road to let passengers on and off and some closed junctions do not have stop signs. This means you should take extra care at junctions and always be vigilant when driving in crowded areas.
  • The main roads around Sharm El-Sheikh are often busy with traffic and can be especially congested during rush hour, which usually falls between 7am and 9am and 4pm and 6.30pm. Heavy traffic is common on highways like the Sharm El-Sheikh-Dahab Road and around the El-Salam junction. You will also find heavy traffic on the 523 beyond the Ras Mohammed Security Checkpoint. If you are driving this way during rush hour, the coastal El-Tor Sharm E-Sheikh Road may be a quieter option.
  • Book your car hire in Sharm el-Sheikh at least 4 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Sharm El-Sheikh?

    Drivers who choose a car hire in Sharm El-Sheikh will usually have to contend with high levels of traffic congestion and crowded parking at most popular attractions. This means that a compact car may be an ideal option for manoeuvring in heavy traffic or for finding parking spaces. However, with many long spacious highways around the city centre, you may also want a more powerful vehicle, such as an SUV or Jeep, for smooth handling on winding stretches of road.

  • What is the speed limit in Sharm El-Sheikh?

    For urban or built-up areas, the speed limit in Egypt is 30 mph (50 km). On rural roads and single carriageways, the speed limit is 70 mph (90 km), while on highways the speed limit sits at 80 mph (100 km). Keep an eye out for local signage when driving your Sharm El-Sheikh car hire as speed limits in Egypt are strictly enforced.

  • Where are the best places to park in Sharm El-Sheikh?

    Drivers should not expect to find a lot of official or metered car parks in Sharm El-Sheikh, though there are numerous car parks available around central attractions and close to the beach. You can usually park for free in these spots but finding a parking space can be a challenge. Visitors should also be aware that it is common in Egypt for drivers to leave their handbrakes up so that other drivers can roll their cars to make more parking space. You do not have to do this to park in Egypt but be aware of other drivers parking close to you.

Tried to change time and location. Nothing worked. Not Kayak nor company sites. Tried well over 12 times to phone the company. Nothing. I will not rent a car from a company that has no phone contact. Called Hertz and Abdul answered the phone. Rented from him and never picked up the Kayak/Sixt car. Not happy at all with this wast of time and stress.
