KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Islamabad

  • When you decide to book car hire in Islamabad in Pakistan, you'll be giving yourself the freedom to explore the areas at your own pace, which is a good thing because this cultural hub of Pakistan is packed with historic locations that hold great esteem. There are many locations around the city to visit and wonderful road trips to surrounding areas. Avoid the delays of public transport and see as many things as you like. Visit the Faisal Mosque, Pakistan monument, Lok Virsa Museum, and Rawal Lake all in one day.
  • Islamabad International Airport is the main airport serving the city and other cities nearby. It is 17 km from the city centre and it takes about 30 minutes to reach the city centre from the airport in your Islamabad car hire vehicle. Collect your car hire in Islamabad directly from the airport and get your trip underway. There are several local and international car hire companies at the airport, and you can find their desks at the Concourse Hall.
  • Driving car hire in Islamabad is not expensive and will make getting around so much easier, as public transport is not always reliable. You'll need to pay attention to the driving environment though, as it is not the same as driving in the west. The road rules are different and you'll notice that drivers tend to make erratic decisions like making u-turns when not allowed or unexpectedly. Cars on the roads are generally not in top conditions as well, which means it's not uncommon for traffic flow to be hindered by a broken down car blocking a lane.
  • One of the major difficulties when driving your car hire in Islamabad comes when traffic congestion is at its highest. During these peak traffic times, it's not uncommon to find 3 or 4 lanes of traffic on a 2-lane road. It only lasts a few hours each day and is typically worst on weekdays. The high peak traffic times are from 7am till 9am and start again in the evening at 5pm till about 7pm. Driving during these times can set you back about 15 minutes.
  • Book your car hire in Islamabad at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact hire cars in Islamabad are around 25% more expensive than other car types, on average

Smaller cars can handle the road system sufficiently and then give you advantages during high traffic times. Also, smaller cars are easier to navigate in small spaces caused by bumper-to-bumper traffic. They are lighter on fuel consumption which comes in handy when you are driving in a stop-and-start traffic jam, and they are easier to park on city streets.

  • What’s the speed limit in Islamabad?

    Road speeds in the city are much the same as in the rest of the country. Driving at 100 km/h is the limit when on but can drop to 80 km/h in some places. Luckily the roads are well signposted in most areas, so you'll see this speed reduction indicated. When driving on main roads or motorways you'll reach speeds of up to 130 km/h

  • Where are the best places to park in Islamabad?

    There are several streets where you are allowed to park on the roads, however, these are generally chargeable. They also hold a time limit of up to 4 hours. It can be a bit dangerous to park on the streets due to the unpredictable nature of other drivers. To avoid any hassle, it's best to park in public or paid car parks. Most hotels, shopping malls and attractions have large parking lots attached to them where you can park, sometimes for free and sometimes at a fee. At the market of Aabpara, parking is a favourite free public parking lot.

Pros:

New cars.

Cons:

Location was difficult to find because the address was not updated. There was no sign boards which had made it easy to find the place. One more issue. I paid insurance through you. But when I went to collect the car I was forced to take another insurance. They didn't accept insurance I paid through
