Hi,
does anybody know if there is a car rental agency at Luxor Airport or in Luxor city? I have checked some of the bigger rental firms but none of them seems to offer rental at Luxor.
Luxor Airport unfortunately does not care to reply to any inquiries. They are quite backward anyway posting an arrival schedule of January now in March!

For those who dare driving a car in Egypt, there are several 24 hour car rental services
from Cairo airport, including major companies such as National, Avis and Hertz.
Rental cars require a minimum age of 25 and an international driverís licence.
I don`t know of any opportunity to rent a car in Luxor but the best method
of getting around there would be by private limousine service which will take you
anywhere in Upper Egypt with a minimum of fuss and are reasonably priced.
They can be accessed by most of the tour companies in Luxor and can also be booked
for trips to Aswan and the Red Sea Coast.

There is no car rental at Luxor airport and frankly only someone with good Arabic, spoken and written and nerves of steel and a death wish would drive in Egypt. Especially as the price for a car with a driver is the same as the price for self drive.

They will meet you at the airport if required - or deliver to your hotel/accommodation

European tourists who are used to driving on the right hand side of the road should have no difficulty driving in Egypt, given that there is no need to drive in the cities. I do agree the first sight of the trafic in Luxor is offputting, but touring outside is a breeze.

I can reccommend - great service - no fuss - clean car - reasonable prices - all languages spoken - driver/guide


e.mail address cars @selfdriverentalsluxor.com

You need an international driver licence.
