Where is Egypt?

There's no finer way to fully experience a new country than from behind the wheel of your very own rental car. You'll have confidence hitting the wide open road in Egypt after learning a few basics. Egypt is just one of the countries located in Africa, a stretch of land that is always ready to surprise and delight. Its capital is Cairo. Home to some of the country's best sights, it's a wonderful introduction to what this place is all about.

What are the major attractions in Egypt?

Unmissable sights can be found around almost every corner in Egypt. Buckle your seat belt and we'll tell you about a few of them. Giza Pyramid Complex is 8 miles from the middle of Cairo and should be right at the top of your travel schedule. You'll need to keep an eye out for a parking spot though — it can get busy here.

How can I get a cheap car rental in Egypt?

Here are our top tips on how to jump behind the wheel of a rental car with some savings in your wallet:

  • Compare as many different bargain deals as you can (we make that job a breeze!);
  • By entering only your email address into our Price Drop Alert, you'll be informed of all the best discounts for your destination;
  • Broaden your search to include both airport and non-airport pickup office locations to ensure you're bagging the best possible deal in town;
  • If your dates are not set in stone, see if you can get a lower price by changing the days in your search;
  • Pickup and drop-off times typically need to be similar (e.g, both 9 a.m.) or you may be charged for another full day;
  • Some places reward you handsomely for prepaying — keep a lookout for these penny-pinching deals;
  • The early bird catches the worm, and also the best deals! Book as soon as possible to drive off with some great savings.

What is the most popular rental car category in Egypt?

A dream to maneuver and with great gas mileage — it's no surprise that compact cars are the most popular type of rental vehicle in Egypt. And if you're about to cruise down the city streets of Cairo or Alexandria, you'll be relieved you booked a smaller car too. Zip past traffic, squeeze into small parking spots, and navigate narrow roads — discover why bigger doesn't always mean better!

Don't limit your adventures to the big cities. Egypt offers some glorious scenery, such as canyons, desert landscapes, and dunes. A set of wheels like a convertible will help you discover them in style. These vehicles are ideal for sightseers who want to experience the views with the top rolled down. Who doesn't enjoy the feeling of the wind in their hair?

Should I get a luxury rental car in Egypt?

Sometimes the journey is more significant than the destination, which makes your car choice particularly important. If you're planning an epic road trip around Egypt, a roomy SUV could be the perfect solution. If you'd like a fantastic bargain and plan on staying mostly in the city, a versatile compact is a clever pick. All you have to do is work out what suits you best, throw your bags in the trunk, and hit the road.
