Car Hire Sharjah Airport Useful Guide

Hiring a Car at Sharjah Airport:

Car Rental Procedures:

  1. Documentation: Alongside your home country's driving license, an international driving permit (IDP) is usually required for tourists. Residents will need a UAE driving license.

  2. Age Limit: Typically, the minimum age for hiring a car in Sharjah is 21 years. For some premium vehicles, the age requirement may be 25.

  3. Deposit: Car rental companies will hold a security deposit on your credit card, which will be refunded upon the vehicle's return without any damages.

  4. Insurance: Ensure that the rental includes essential insurance coverage, or consider purchasing comprehensive coverage, especially if you're unfamiliar with the local driving conditions.

Driving in and around Sharjah:

  1. Driving Side: The UAE, including Sharjah, drives on the right-hand side.

  2. Speed Limits: Speed limits are typically 60-80 km/h in cities and 100-120 km/h on highways.

  3. Parking: Sharjah has both paid parking zones and free zones. Ensure you're parking in a legal area to avoid fines.

  4. Fuel: Petrol stations are easily accessible in and around Sharjah, and fuel costs are relatively low compared to Western standards.

  5. Traffic: Traffic in Sharjah can be dense, especially during rush hours (7-9 AM and 5-7 PM). It's advisable to plan your trips avoiding these times if possible.

Exiting Sharjah Airport:

  • The primary road connecting Sharjah International Airport to the city and other emirates is the Airport Road (E88), which connects to Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road (E311) and then to the Emirates Road (E611).

Distances to Nearest Places:

  1. Sharjah City Center: About 15 km or a 15-minute drive without traffic.

  2. Dubai: Approximately 30 km, around 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on traffic.

  3. Ajman: Around 20 km, a 20- to 30-minute drive.

Recommended Car Type:

  • For solo travelers or couples without much luggage, a compact or economy car would suffice.
  • For families or larger groups, a sedan or SUV would be more comfortable.
  • If you're planning on visiting off-road desert areas, consider renting a 4x4 vehicle.

Additional Tips:

  • Speed cameras are ubiquitous in the UAE. Adhere to speed limits to avoid hefty fines.
  • Roundabouts can be tricky. Vehicles inside the roundabout generally have the right of way, but it's essential to be attentive as local driving behaviors can vary.
  • The UAE has strict rules against drinking and driving. The legal blood alcohol limit is 0.0%.

Remember, always stay alert and be respectful of local driving customs and regulations. Enjoy making the most of your hire car!
