Top tips for renting 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.

  • What is driving like in Jordan?

    Outside of urban areas, where traffic can be heavy, driving in Jordan is usually considered straightforward: highways like the King’s Highway are well-maintained, wide, and usually straight, with signs in English and Arabic. Things to watch out for include potholes, roadside landmines in remote areas, sandstorms, roaming animals, and military checkpoints. For the checkpoints, it is helpful to have your passport or identification papers on hand.

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

    To rent a car in Jordan, drivers need to be at least 21 years of age and must have held their license for a minimum of one year before the rental date. 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.

  • How much does petrol cost in Jordan?

    Petrol prices in Jordan are relatively low and stable compared to Europe; expect to pay between 0.75 JOD (1 USD) and 1.15 JOD (1.60 USD) per liter, or between 3.78 USD and 6.05 USD per gallon, depending on which type of fuel is required. 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.

  • What are the speed limits in Jordan?

    Speed limits in Jordan tend to be 60 km/h (37 mph) in residential areas, 80 km/h (49 mph) in less developed areas, and 120 km/h (74 mph) on the highway. Speed bumps are common both in cities and on the highway. Be wary of these, because they are rarely marked. Many rental vehicles come with a built-in speed tracker that will beep if you exceed 120 km/h (74 mph).
