Top tips for renting a car in Qatar

  • As Qatar is a small country, it is easy to navigate with a car, and you will be able to visit many sites in a short amount of time. Plus, the fact that gas is so cheap makes renting a car a more economical option than using public transport. Although Doha has a reasonable bus service, getting around the rest of the country is much simpler with a car.
  • Renting a car in Qatar is ideal if you want to experience some of the country’s natural sights. At just 17 km (10 mi) from the town of Dukhan, you can get a sense of tranquility at the UNESCO Al Reem Biosphere Reserve and discover the local wildlife, including oryx and gazelle. If you want to relax on the beach, close to the Saudi Arabian border you will find miles of sandy beaches at Khor Al Udaid Beach, which is easily reachable by car and about 78 km (48 mi) south of Doha.
  • There are several parking options around Qatar; however, Doha lacks parking spaces. You will find that many of the malls offer free parking, which is often in a covered area, while a lot of the hotel and residential parking within cities is underground but requires a permit. Along some streets you will find pay-as-you-go parking, which costs around 2 QAR (0.55 USD) per hour.
  • Much of Qatar is desert, so exploring it by car is an adventure. If you plan to visit the dunes, then you must rent a four-wheel drive or SUV to endure the "dune bashing" and negotiate the sand. If you are planning to spend time in Qatar’s cities, like Al Khor or Doha, you should consider a small car to drive around their busy streets.
