Why rent a car in Jordan?

Combining true Middle Eastern charm with an openness to the rest of the world, Jordan has become one of the main travel destinations in the region. Whether you travel there for the fascinating sites of Petra and Wadi Rum, the Red Sea beaches, or unique traditions and genuine hospitality, you’re not going to be disappointed. 

Jordan Car Rental

Top ways to enter Jordan

Amman Queen Alia Airport: Jordan’s largest international airport is modern and well-connected, offering flights to many destinations in the Greater Middle East, Europe, and Asia.

Aqaba Airport: Located in the very southwest of the country, Aqaba Airport offers an entry point to the Red Sea.

By land: It might be possible to enter Jordan from Israel, although the border situation depends on the political climate in the region and can change quite rapidly so make sure to follow the latest updates. You cannot cross the border in a rental car. The nearest international airport is in Eilat.

Top cities and places to visit

  • Amman. Home to four million people, Amman is not just the capital and the largest city of Jordan, it is also one of the most interesting metropolises of the Arab world. From landmarks like the Amman Citadel and Roman and Ottoman sites to delicious cuisine and fun, if somewhat crazy nightlife, this is one place that truly has something for everyone. 
  • Petra. Carved straight into the stone, the red city of Petra is one of the top tourist attractions in the Middle East. The crowds and the hassle can feel overwhelming, but no trip to the country will be full without seeing Petra’s monasteries, tombs, and facades, and rightly so - it’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
  • Aqaba. Located in the very south of the country, the resort city of Aqaba is another popular tourist destination. There’s plenty of culture here, exemplified by landmarks such as the Aqaba Castle and City Heritage Museum, but the number one attraction of Aqaba is its Red Sea coastline and wonderful diving. Read more about the possibility to cross the border into neighboring Israel below.

Most popular rental car

The most popular rental car in Jordan is the Kia Picanto, but the Toyota Yaris and the Citroen C3 are also quite popular.

Driver license requirements

  • Jordan recognizes valid foreign driver’s licenses if you’re visiting on a short trip. If you’re living in the country permanently, you need to obtain a local license instead.
  • If your driver’s license is printed in a non-Latin, non-Arabic alphabet (Cyrillic, Chinese, etc.), you’ll need an International Driving Permit (IDP).
  • Similarly, if your driver’s license doesn’t show your photograph, you might be required to have an IDP.
  • You must carry your driver’s license, not a copy, with you at all times. 
  • You need to have had your driver’s license for at least two years.
  • Some rental car suppliers charge a young driver fee for drivers between the ages of 22 and 25 and a senior driver fee for drivers over the age of 65.
  • There may be additional requirements depending on the car supplier and category, so make sure to check the rental conditions before booking.

Crossing Borders

Jordan shares land borders with Israel, the Palestinian Authority, Syria, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia. It is not possible to cross any of the land borders with a rental car. Travel to Iraq and Syria is strongly discouraged by most Western governments due to the ongoing military conflicts in these countries.

Many travelers choose to travel from the Jordanian city of Aqaba to the Israeli city of Eilat as the two are only about 15 km (9 miles) apart. While you cannot travel with a rental car, it is possible to drop off one rental in Jordan and pick up a new one after arriving in Israel. Do keep in mind, however, that each of the countries has its own visa policy, so find out in advance about the entry requirements for your nationality. Also, make sure to look up the latest border situation because while the border is normally open, it has experienced sporadic closures during the last decade.

Most popular types of rental car

The most popular rental vehicle type in Jordan is economy, but fullsize and compact are also popular.

Top driving routes

  • Wadi Rum. Located in the south of the country less than an hour’s drive from Aqaba, Wadi Rum, or the Valley of the Moon, is home to some truly otherworldly landscapes. A world heritage site, it is characterized by its canyons, rock formations, dunes, and the home of the Lawrence of Arabia. You can get to the entry point of the area with a rental car, but need to join a guided tour in a 4x4 from there.
  • Azraq Wetland Reserve. Located in the east of the country about a 100-minute drive from Amman, Azraq is an oasis in the desert known for its marshy landscapes and rich variety of birds that migrate through the area. The wetlands are bordered by the Shaumari Wildlife Reserve where it’s possible to see locally threatened species like Somali ostrich and Arabian oryx. Azraq and Shaumari are notably less touristy than some of the aforementioned destinations, so visiting here takes some planning, but can nonetheless be a very memorable experience.
  • Dead Sea. One of the lowest and the saltiest bodies of water on the planet, visiting the Dead Sea is another fascinating adventure that Jordan can offer (the country controls the sea’s eastern coast). Besides the sea itself, there are different attractions such as the Dead Sea Museum and Mujib Valley Reserve. Different parts of the coastline can be accessed by car from either Amman, Aqaba, or the center of the country.

Amman is a big city with crazy traffic. It is strange to drive in those crazy conditions, but you get used to it very quickly, just follow what locals do :) Rental company offers additional insutance that covers all expenses, even speeding tickets, but is up to you to take it. Personnally, we took it, but it think it is not needed, sine police is very welcoming and friendly towards tourists. There are a lot of checkpoints around Jordan, and you will be pulled off by police, but they will generally ask where are you from and than welcome you to their country :)

Many people said be careful driving in Amman, but you have to be in it to share your thoughts about it. As soon as I entered the car felt comfortable and driving in Jordan is super amazing and I would recommend to each and everyone to go for it. I drove from North to south of Jordan in one week with total of 19hrs / 1,054km of driving and we didn't have any problem at all :) So go for it and rent a car and rent from DiscoverCarHire. 10/10

Driving in Jordan, for the most part, requires one's full attention. Some roads, specifically - Dead Sea to Kerak - Road 60 - The connector road between Road 65 and Ma'in Hot Springs were particularly spectacular but required concentration. We are happy to say that our car did well in all circumstances. Also be aware: - in Jordan, texting or using a mobile phone is common while driving - traffic circles are very common - Speed bumps are very common, not always well indicated

Renting a car is the best way to explore Jordan because it's very comfortable and public transport is a little bit tricky in this country. I was afraid of driving culture because I came from Europe but driving was surprisingly easy.

I'd recommend to prefer full-to-full fuel policy, it's way easier and solves a bit of problems: don't need to calculate how much you would need fuel, no stress while picking-up, since you get it with empty tank, thus the first thing you do is searching for petrol station.

I've got 20+ years driving experience but the roads needs major maintenance and the drivers are not aware of the simple rules, plus the roads do not have the lines of separation and in the round about - its chaos. Luckily my husband is an excellent driver - but he definitely got a bit stressed out and tired of it- by the end of our journey we were happy that we did not need to drive anymore...

I was saddened that the police targeted me in southern Jordan and wrote up a ticket that the registration was expired when in fact it was not. I think that this was done as I was asked my nationality which was USA. Corruption was obvious with the police. This act caused the Auto nation to have to take time to go to Amman police station to have ticket cancelled.
