KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Cairo

  • Car hire in Cairo is ideal for those looking to make the most of their time in this big city. Whether you want to explore the sights of the city itself, such as the Khan el-Khalili bazaar and the Hanging Church, or want to drive out to visit the Great Pyramid of Giza, driving will enable you to move around at your own pace and will help you avoid a hectic public transport experience.
  • You will find car hire desks in all 3 terminals of Cairo International Airport (CAI), all easily accessible inside the terminal building itself. While Terminal 2 only has a limousine service offered by Sixt, you will find a large number of car hire companies for your Cairo car hire in Terminals 1 and 3. These include a number of local companies, as well as some international ones such as Europcar, Budget and Enterprise.
  • When driving your car hire in Cairo, it is important to take into consideration the following handy tips. Local drivers rarely use indicators, so try not to get too close to the car in front of you as they might suddenly turn without a warning. Traffic signals are not very common in Cairo, which makes turning left a bit tricky on some of the more major roads. Make sure you also keep an eye out for pedestrians, as jaywalking is very common.
  • Cairo is notorious for having heavy traffic any time of the day, but you should especially try to avoid driving during rush hour, which falls between 8:00 and 9:00 in the morning and between 16:00 and 18:00 in the evening. Some of the city’s most congested roads at those times are the Ring Road, as well as the Moneeb, May 15 and 6th of October bridges. The roads also generally get busy after the Maghrib prayer which happens at sunset, and the Isha prayer which happens sometime between 19:00 and 20:00, depending on the time of the year.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Cairo for ₪68 or less
  • Book your rental car in Cairo at least 5 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Cairo are around 44% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Cairo

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Cairo?

    Given the city’s busy roads, the recommended choice for a car hire in Cairo is a smaller vehicle such as a compact car. This increases your chances of finding a car park wherever you go and will enable you to save on fuel costs. If you are visiting in summer, make sure the car you choose is equipped with air conditioning, as it will make driving in hot and humid weather a lot more pleasant.

  • What’s the speed limit in Cairo?

    The speed limit in the city’s built-up areas is 60km/h (37mph), on the motorways it goes up to 90km/h (56mph), while in the dessert you can drive as fast as 100km/h (62mph).

  • Where are the best places to park in Cairo?

    Street parking is available all around Cairo and usually comes without a fee. However, it can be a challenge to find a free spot, especially in the busy areas, and you will find that many cars double park even on busy roads. It is common for locals to offer to help you find a parking space in exchange for a small fee. Alternatively, paid car parks are available all around the city, and the fee is usually paid to the parking attendant. If the car park is busy, you could be asked to leave the keys with the attendant, as they might need to move the car around depending on the available space.

They did not honer my first reservation. I made sure when they called me before I travel that I will be at 11:00 pm and gave them my flight number. When I came out of the arrival gate no one was at their booth. I called there number 3 times but no one answered. I had to leave by taxi at a high rate. I called from my hotel, explained the situation so they promised to keep my reservation to pick up the car at 1pm next day. When I went to the airport, I found they cancelled the reservation. Had to make another reservation at a high prices. It is really a bad situation. They were not a professional car rental. I will not go there again!!!

I have always trusted Kayak but this time disappointed me. The company refused to give me my car and refuse to refund my money. I was in Canada and nothing in terms and condition proofs that I need international driving licence. I reached to rentalcars who were rude and refused to help accusing me that was my fault not to read the terms but nothing in the terms mentioned that I need one . I tried to call the office in Egypt from Canada but they barely spoke any English and didn’t give me any details Don’t book anything that is related with Rentalcars

Pros:

The car was clean and in good working condition.

Cons:

I had to wait about an hour for the person to come with the car. Despite booking the car for 6:00 AM, and calling the day before to confirm I could pick it up at that time, I learned when I arrived that the person with they keys to the car wouldn't come until normal working hours started (8:00 AM). Additionally, the mileage costs were not very good. The extra mileage charges for one day of use were about five times the cost of the rental itself.
