Car Rental in Hurghada: exploring Egypt's famous resort

Hurghada was once a nondelabel style={display:none} fishing village, but today its awesome beach landscape is populated with over 100 hotels, making the area and its incredible reef marine life accessible to international visitors. Make the most of your visit by exploring the area thoroughly via rental car. Book your car today!

While the peak summer months will certainly be quite hot, Hurghada is comfortable to visit year-round.

Arabic is the official language of Egypt, though English is widely spoken at tourist sites, and many Egyptians speak a wide range of the world’s languages, at least at the basic level. Road signs are typically in both Arabic and Latin alphabets, though basic reading knowledge of Arabic will be a huge help to you on any longer road trips!

Hurghada is located in the Eastern European Time Zone, UTC+2.

The currency is the Egyptian pound. Your best option for acquiring Egyptian pounds is taking advantage of the ATMs in major cities—unless of course you have a good head for calculations and are willing to haggle with any of the local currency exchange shops.

Automobile hire is available in 3 locations throughout Hurghada, the Hurghada International Airport (HRG), downtown, and on Aden Beach.

The ancient and modern city of Luxor is about 300 km southwest of Hurghada and provides visitors an excellent opportunity to experience the spectacular remnants of ancient Egypt while visiting the country. However, the highways between Hurghada and Luxor have long been considered one of the most dangerous highways in the world, so be sure to ask your hotel staff about current travel conditions before you embark.

Visa Regulations

Most Arab nationalities require no visa to visit Egypt, and many others, including Europeans, can simply purchase a visa upon arrival. Double check regulations before you leave, as some nationalities must apply for a visa before they depart for Egypt.

Driving in Hurghada

It’s rare for tourists to rent a car in Hurghada, even though public transportation is reduced to the white mini van microbuses and taxis that frequent the streets. If you want to be more mobile, ask your hotel receptionists for the best tips on driving in and around the city. Drive defensively whenever you come across traffic congestion, and keep an eye out for quickly changing road conditions.

Right-Hand Driving

  • Traffic drives on the right-hand side of the road throughout Egypt.

Speed Limits

  • In cities and towns: 50 km/h
  • On motorways and rural roads: 90 km/h
  • On the highway between Alexandria and Cairo: 100 km/h

Other Regulations

  1. To avoid having to learn parking rules and regulations in Hurghada, consider booking a hotel with complementary off-street parking.
  2. While there are no toll roads in the direct vicinity of Hurghada, you will run into numerous police checkpoints whenever you drive outside of the city. Be sure to have all of your documents on hand, including your car rental contract.
  3. You must have an international driver’s permit in addition to your valid domestic driver’s license in order to rent and drive throughout Egypt.
  4. Egyptian drivers have to be at least 18 years old to be licensed, though you will likely have to be at least 25 years old to rent a car. Some companies may allow you to rent between the ages of 20 and 25, though you will likely have to pay a surcharge to do so.

Other Tips

  • Consider hiring a driver, particularly for drives into the desert or even for a visit to Cairo, located 450 km north of Hurghada.
  • Petrol or gas stations are typically open from 8 am to 8 pm.
  • Always carry a significant amount of water with you (much more than you think you will need!) when driving between cities in Egypt!
  • If you’re stopped by the police and are asked to pay an on-the-spot fine, ensure that you receive a written receipt in English.
