Oman Car Rental Mini Guide

Popular car hire locations in Oman

Road infrastructure in Oman is generally excellent and it's perfectly safe to drive here. Car hire in Oman is incredibly popular and the preffered means of ground transportation for international visitors. With familiar car hire companies located at all major arrival points offering an extensive range of cars, there's little to be concerned about when it comes to driving in Oman.

To make life easier, all rental cars in Oman are automatic models so even if you are not familiar with driving on the right hand side of the road, changing gear is one less thing to worry about.

Whilst speed limits in Oman are modest, you can be fined for driving too slowly on the motorway, aim to keep up with the flow of traffic and avoid the left-lane (fastest) on the motorways until you are comfortable with overtaking.
