There are several requirements you'll need to meet before being able to pick up a car hire in Cairo, and a couple of restrictions you should be aware of. You won't be able to hire a car in Cairo at most car hire places if you're younger than 25 years old. There are a couple of car hire places that'll let you hire a car in Cairo if you're at least 20, but you'll typically incur an additional surcharge for being a young driver. You must have held a valid driving licence for at least 12 months. To pick up your car hire in Cairo, bring the same credit card used for the online booking, your confirmation details, your driving licence, and your passport as a form of identification. If you've used someone else's credit card, make sure they're present or you won't be allowed to take your hired car.
Staying up to date with the local vehicle departments is a good way to be aware of sudden rules changes. When driving your Cairo car hire, stick to the right-hand lane and pass slower-moving vehicles in the left lane. Wearing a seatbelt is mandatory for all passengers and drivers while in the car hire. If your child is younger than seven, they may not sit in the front seat. Avoid using mobile phones while driving unless accompanied by a hands-free system. Driving with a blood-alcohol level over 0.05% is prohibited and heavily enforced in the country.
When considering the right type of car hire to choose in Egypt, you'll want to take traffic congestion into account. Cairo, and the rest of Egypt, is well-known for its heavy traffic congestion. Choosing a smaller, lighter hired car, like a Mini or Economy model, will be easier to handle in the city and offers better fuel consumption. Because of the long time spent in traffic, you may want to opt for a vehicle with automatic transmission to save you money on fuel.
Parking your Cairo car hire can be challenging when driving around the city due to the numerous cars on the road. There is on-street parking all around Cairo if you can find a space, which usually doesn't come with a fee. You'll also find paid car parks throughout the city for a nominal fee, like Novotel Cairo El Borg at 26WG+36P, Zamalek. You'll typically pay for these when you leave the car park. If your car park is busy, the guard may request your keys so they can move the vehicle around if needed.
