Some travelers find dodging traffic in big cities a bit tricky. But in a small car like a compact or economy, getting around Luxor will be a cinch. Prefer to spend your getaway exploring the surrounding cliffs? Check out our selection of mid-size and full-size SUVs. With loads of room and more oomph under the hood, these larger vehicles will make those long, leisurely drives even more memorable. Ticking off all the experiences and attractions that Luxor is renowned for has never been easier with your own wheels.
First of all, there’s a huge range of both economy and luxury rental vehicles in Luxor. What you end up going for depends on how much you’re willing to spend and what you plan to do. Specialty and prestige vehicles often spare no expense when it comes to comfort and class. If you’re splashing out, why not go for a high-end SUV, or perhaps an upmarket medium-sized vehicle? Otherwise, if you’re just after something to zip around town in as efficiently as possible, go for a budget compact vehicle (or something else that won’t burn a hole in your wallet).
Being a smaller city, finding a car space in Luxor isn’t a difficult task. Once you’ve got one, read any signs nearby. You may be hit with a fine if you ignore the rules and restrictions.
As the population of Luxor is around 422,400, you shouldn’t have too much trouble with traffic congestion. However, major roads usually get busy in the rush hours before and after work, so you may want to avoid driving during these times.
Usually, your car rental company will charge the amount of the fine to your credit card. Alternatively, the company may forward your contact details to local authorities so they can send a fine straight to you.
