Top tips for hiring a car in Jordan

  • Public transportation in Jordan usually only links the major cities, meaning that it can be a distinct advantage to have a private mode of transport. Renting a car in Jordan will give you inexpensive and flexible access to popular sights like Petra, Wadi Rum, and the Dead Sea, which are otherwise only accessible by guided tour or expensive private transfers.
  • When sticking to the main highways, travelers who rent a car in Jordan will find that a normal vehicle is sufficient; apart from the occasional risk of flooding, these roads are generally in good condition. Those who plan to go off road or drive in the desert will certainly require a 4x4 and an excellent navigation system.
  • Unlike in many Western countries, the horn is used frequently when driving in Jordan, and rental car drivers will soon get used to this. Outside urban areas, where the highway is less populated and some drivers travel at high speeds, it is advised to use a soft horn to warn other vehicles, people, or animals of your presence, especially when approaching a bend or dip in the road.
  • Thanks to the difficult political climate in many of its neighboring countries, cross-border rentals are not permitted in Jordan. International border zones are often home to high-security military areas and can be hazardous, so it is best to completely avoid these areas wherever possible.
  • Book your car hire in Jordan at least 2 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hire in Jordan are around -36% cheaper than other car types, on average

For the checkpoints, it is helpful to have your passport or identification papers on hand.

Some agencies like Avis or Europcar have certain vehicles than can only be rented by drivers 23 and up. Although most major agencies are willing to accept a domestic license printed in the Roman alphabet, official requirements state that an International Driver’s Permit (IDP) should be carried when driving a rental car. In case of police checks, it is advised to have an IDP on hand.

Petrol stations are common in urban areas but may be few and far between in remote areas; before leaving a city, it is highly recommended to fill the tank.
