Top tips for renting a car in Oman

  • Renting a car in Oman and taking a self-drive tour gives you several advantages over other methods of transportation. First, public transportation in Oman is extremely limited, and even the biggest cities have limited routes between them. Oman also has several areas, like the Sharqiya Sands and the Hajjar Mountains, that are almost completely inaccessible via public transportation.
  • Because the roads connecting Oman’s major cities are in great condition, renting an economy car or a compact car will be sufficient for your trip, if you’re sticking to more developed or urban areas. However, if you’ll be exploring the more natural side of Oman, a four-wheel drive vehicle is essential. The mountain passes and sandy regions of Oman can be tricky to navigate, so be sure to reserve a GPS along with your vehicle, if you didn’t bring one.
  • If you’re traveling to Oman with a child under the age of four, be advised that they are required by law to be secured in a car seat when traveling even short distances in a vehicle. Larger rental car companies like Sixt and Avis offer car seats as an add-on to your rental reservation, so you can pick it up with your vehicle.
  • If you’re renting a car in Oman and plan to cross the border into the UAE, you’ll first need to check with your agency to make sure that they offer the additional insurance required. If they do, simply notify them a few weeks in advance, so that they can prepare the proper paperwork. As always, make sure to have your passport, car rental papers, and additional insurance papers with you as you travel to the border.
  • Book your rental car in Oman at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

  • What is driving like in Oman?

    The roads that connect major cities and tourist attractions in Oman are in great condition, making driving in and between the country’s more developed areas extremely easy. Driving is on the right side of the road in Oman, and the road signs spell out locations and landmarks in the Roman alphabet. Speed bumps are extremely common in Oman, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for yellow diagonal lines to avoid the discomfort of hitting a speed bump at full speed.

  • How old do you have to be to hire a car in Oman?

    The minimum age to rent a car in Oman is 21. However, while many larger car rental companies like Sixt will allow 21-year-olds to rent a car, many smaller agencies won’t allow drivers under 25 to rent a car. If you’re under 25, be sure to check with your agency before completing your reservation. You will be able to rent a car with the driver’s license issued by your home country, so there’s no need to obtain an international driving permit if you don’t have one already.

  • How much does petrol cost in Oman?

    Filling up your petrol tank in Oman will cost you a bit less than filling up in the States. The price for a gallon of petrol in Oman is 0.84 OMR (2.14 USD), while in the United States, a gallon of petrol will cost you around 2.50 USD. Petrol stations in Oman are full-service, so it might be more convenient to pay in cash and leave a little extra for the attendant.

  • What are the speed limits in Oman?

    The speed limits in Oman are similar to those in most European countries. When driving in urban areas on single-lane roads, the posted limits are around 40 km/h (25 mph). On double-lane urban roads, the speed limit will be around 60-80 km/h (37-50 mph). Speed limits on rural roads and freeways can range from 90 to 120 km/h (56-75 mph). Fines for speeding can be severe, so make sure to follow posted limits.
