    Driving information Egypt

    General Information
    Egypt is an exotic country that offers archaeological treasures as well as a bustling city life in the capital of Cairo. Rent a car in Egypt and visit the Pyramids in Giza or enjoy the sun and the beaches by the Red Sea Coast.

    To rent a car, you must be at least 25 years old and maximum 60 years old (age can vary by car category) and have held your driver's license for at least 2 years. An international driver’s license is also mandatory.

    Speed Limits
    Speed limits in Egypt are:

    • Open Roads: 90 km/h
    • Motorways: 100 km/h

    Traffic restrictions
    In Egypt you drive on the right side of the road. Always remember to take it extremely easy and avoid driving in the city centre. The local drivers are infamous for their reckless way of driving. Be aware of drivers honking the horn. In most cases they use the horn simply to greet each another.

    Many petrol stations open 08:00 to 20:00. Be sure to refill your rental car before leaving a city.

    There are a few roads that require a toll. The route between Cairo and Alexandria is one example.

    It is possible to park your car on the street. We, however, strongly recommend that you use a secure parking area. Most hotels and shops provide secure parking.

Please take a moment to ensure that your intended itinerary will be possible with the car you plan to book. If you plan on driving abroad during the winter please note that because Swedish cars are equipped with spiked snow tires you are not allowed to travel abroad.
