Top tips for hiring a car in Lebanon

  • Either before or after you rent a car in Lebanon, it’s a good idea to get a local SIM card for your mobile phone or device, which will allow you to access Google Maps for navigational purposes, in case your car does not have a GPS system or you prefer not to rent one. Traffic tends to be heavy in Beirut, the capital, and you should be wary of impatient drivers.
  • If you are staying in Beirut, try to locate some parking lots, because roadside parking with meters is normally restricted to two hours at time. Fortunately, there is no serious enforcement of parking rules; still, you should use a parking lot if possible. Rates vary from about 1.507 LBP (about 1.00 USD) per 15 min, while meters cost between 2,260 LBP (about 1.50 USD) and 3,770 LBP ( 2.50 USD) per hour in parking lots.
  • When driving your rental car around Lebanon, be aware that roundabouts are common in the country, and locals are not always keen on following the rules of the road. So, approach them carefully and always be aware of oncoming traffic. The same applies to intersections, especially outside of the capital, where signs to determine right of way may not exist.
  • Lebanon is a great place to take a couple of road trips, if you enjoy being on the road. There are plenty of sights to enjoy, from those in the mountainous part of the country (Qadisha Valley, Miziara, Tripoli) and the Chouf District to Naqoura and Tyre along the Mediterranean coast. Or, you can take the Beirut-Damascus Highway and explore many of the towns and villages along the way.
  • Book your car hire in Lebanon at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact hire cars in Lebanon are around 28% cheaper than other car types, on average
