Muscat Mini Guide

What can you Tell me About Muscat?
Muscat has a long and illustrious history dating back to the first century AD when it was already a port city serving the empires of the Middle East. It became part of the Persian Empire before falling bizarrely to the Portuguese who ruled it for over a century, variously fighting off attacks from the Turks. In time Muscat earned its own empire that stretched down to East Africa. Tribal squabbles allowed the break up before the current ruler took over in 1970, galvanising the city and the Sultanate into preparing for the future.

How do I get to Muscat?
Muscat Airport is big and busy having served nearly seven million passengers last year. Flights from many Middle Eastern and Asian destinations arrive at the airport as well as several from Europe including Oman Air and BA flights from London Heathrow. Eighteen miles from the city, Muscat Airport underwent a major expansion with a new terminal capable of handling 14m passengers in 2014. There are bus transfers to take you into the city as well as taxis. Car hire is also available at the airport.

What Should I Do in Muscat?
Highlights of the city are the Al Jalali and Al Mirani fort complexes, both now museums whilst the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque is spectacular as the third largest mosque in the world. For the ladies, a visit to the Amouage perfume factory is a must as they produce the world’s most expensive perfume.

FAQ’s

Read our Frequently Asked Questions


Unlike other Middle Eastern cities, Muscat seems underdeveloped, but its charm and that of the rest of Oman is easily recognised driving around it in your Muscat hire car. A simple hire car in Muscat is all that is necessary for life in the city but if you want to venture further afield to the mountains of the Western Al Hajar or to see the iconic Straits of Hormuz then you may want to consider hiring a sturdier vehicle that can cope with sand and rough tracks.

We can offer both these types of vehicle for hire at car hire Muscat and at a pleasingly low price. We can do this by finding the lowest price amongst our competitors and making sure they don’t beat ours. To make booking with us worthwhile we make sure we match our low prices with competition busting service standards.
