Qatar Car Rental Mini Guide

Qatar is located on a peninsula which juts out into the Persian Gulf and is per capita one of the richest countries in the world.   Arriving into New Doha Airport (also known as Hamad Airport) nationals from many countries will have to purchase a visa which will cost around 15 Euros, from here you can collect your pre booked hire car. For some countries getting a visa is difficult and requires them to have a Qatari guarantor before they can come into the country.  Driving in Qatar is generally very safe. The roads in and around Doha are generally excellent and the infrastructure has received vast investment all making hiring a car a worthwhile investment during your stay.
