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

  • Car rentals in Sharm el-Sheikh offer plenty of advantages compared to relying on public transport for transit across the city. Renting a car will allow you to visit locations within and beyond Sharm el-Sheikh city limits. You can easily drive to various attractions within the city, barely accessible by public transportation, including Ras Mohammed National Park, Dahab, Mount Sinai, Blue Hole, and Nabq Protected Area. If you want long scenic drives, you can do so with your rental car on Egypt's Sinai Peninsula and enjoy the beautiful landscape.
  • When flying into Sharm el-Sheikh, you can rent a car at Sharm el-Sheikh Ophira International Airport (SSH), about 12 miles from the city center. The airport has its Sharm el-Sheikh car rentals counters in the Arrivals Halls of their terminals near baggage claim areas. To rent a car from the car rentals in Sharm el-Sheikh, ensure you have all the requirements, including a driver's license, passport or ID card, and credit card, and meet the age limit for rental services.
  • The road condition in Sharm el-Sheikh varies with some of the roads, including highways and major roads having well-maintained roads but other areas having uneven surfaces; therefore, be prepared to encounter varied road conditions when driving around the city. Be keen when driving, particularly in areas with more vehicle traffic, as some drivers may not adhere to traffic rules. Most of the drivers in Sharm el-Sheikh use honking to communicate and send signals, including overtaking and showing impatience; therefore, be prepared to encounter honking in most parts of the city.
  • Sharm el-Sheikh experiences increased traffic during festivals and large events, including Naqb and Abu Galum Festivals and peak tourist seasons, which may affect driving in the city and cause delays. The roads leading to popular tourist attractions, including the Old Market and Naama Bay, may experience increased congestion, especially in the evenings when most tourists are going out for dinner. If you visit Sharm el-Sheikh during summer, consider hydrating when driving as the heat scorches. If you visit during spring, sandstorms may affect visibility on most roads. Ensure you rent a vehicle with good visibility, and you may have to wait and only drive when the weather improves.

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.
