Why rent a car in Amman?

Amman is an awesome place to explore. Both ancient and modern, Jordan’s capital city is one of the most impressive capitals of the Middle East and has plenty to offer when it comes to food, history, and atmosphere. Great distances mean that getting a rental car is your best bet to see it all. Having your own ride will also give you a chance to explore the rest of Jordan.

The best place to rent a car in Amman is at Queen Alia Airport, as the rental suppliers are fast and professional, and everybody speaks English.

Amman

One-Way Car Rentals in Amman

The most popular one-way rental options for pick up in Amman and drop off in another city include:

  • From Amman to Aqaba - 339 offers from $34.72 per day

Top ways to enter Amman

  • Amman Queen Alia Airport. Queen Alia Airport, offering flights to and from destinations in Asia, Europe, and Africa, serves more than eight million travelers every year. It has often been named the best airport in the Middle East. The airport is about 30 km (20 mi) south of the city.
  • Amman Civil Airport. Also known as Marka International Airport, the other airport serving the capital city is much smaller, but nonetheless offers flights to and from Egypt, Turkey, Iraq, United Arab Emirates, and Kuwait. Amman Civil Airport is just 5 km (3.1 mi) northeast of downtown Amman.
  • Aqaba Airport. The only international airport in Jordan outside of the capital, Aqaba Airport serves a resort city of the same name, located on the Red Sea in the very southwest corner of the country. The airport is about a four hour drive from Amman.

 

Note: While it is possible to enter Jordan from three of its neighboring countries, namely Saudi Arabia, Israel, and the Palestinian Territories, it is currently not possible to enter Jordan with a car rented in a neighboring country. Neither is it allowed to rent a car in Jordan and then to travel to a neighboring country.

 

All non-essential travel to Jordan’s two other neighbors, Iraq and Syria, is strongly advised against by most foreign ministries and international organizations due to the security situation.

City facts

With a semi-arid climate, Amman has hot, but tolerable summers, although heat waves can occur. The average temperature in August, the hottest month, is 26.6 °C  (80 °F). Even in winter, the temperature rarely drops below 10 °C  (50 °F). However, due to the city’s proximity to the mountains along with a number of other contributing factors, different areas of Amman can experience different microclimates, for example, the neighborhood of Abu Nser is significantly colder than the rest of the city while the neighborhood of Marka neighborhood is the opposite.

Amman has been inhabited for nearly 10,000 years, with oldest human statues found near the city dating back to the Neolithic era. Initially built on seven hills, Amman now stands on 19. 

Top destinations and activities

  • Amman Citadel. One of the seven original hills of Amman, the Citadel is an impressive place that tells the long and fascinating story of the many civilizations that have ruled and inhabited the city. Here you’ll find the Temple of Hercules, the Umayyad Palace, the Ayyubid Watchtower and much more.
  • Rainbow Street. Labeled by some travelers to be one of the most interesting areas in the Middle East, this street is named after the old Rainbow Cinema and is now lined with coffee shops, galleries, and performance venues. If you want to see the hip and youthful side of Jordan, look no further than here.
  • Roman Theater. Built more than 2200 years ago, this impressive venue is not only a remnant of the Roman times in Amman but also houses the Jordanian Museum of Popular Tradition and the Jordanian Folklore Museum, both interesting places to learn about the city’s history and culture.
  • Jordan Museum. Amman has been inhabited since antiquity, and the best place to learn about the city’s (and the rest of the country’s) diverse heritage is the Jordan Museum. Large and modern, it houses many artifacts that used to be on display in the other cultural institutions of the city such as the Jordan Archaeological Museum.

Traffic and parking

  • In Jordan, vehicles drive on the right hand side of the road.
  • You need to have an International Driver’s Permit (IDP) to drive in Jordan as a foreigner. Not having one can lead to large fines.
  • Most road signs in Amman are written in both English and Arabic. However, different English spellings might be used for the same street and location names.
  • Unless specifically indicated otherwise, the speed limits are 120 km/h (75 mph) on motorways, 80 km/h (50 mph) on country roads, and 60 km/h (38 mph) or less in populated and built-up areas.
  • Most general roads in Jordan are in good shape and are well-maintained. Rural roads can have widely varying quality, even within the same area.
  • Tourists aren’t allowed to drive in the Wadi Rum Protected Area — you’ll be asked to leave the car at Wadi Rum village and join a guided tour.
  • When driving at night, especially in the countryside, take extra caution as some vehicles might be driving without the lights on or might be stopping on the side of the road without the lights on. Also, watch out for pedestrians on the road as some areas have no pavements.
  • It is only allowed to use a mobile phone while driving if you use a hands-free system. 
  • Unlike in Europe or North America, Jordanian drivers use their horns a lot. Do not let this upset you - rather than a sign of road rage, it is simply a different way of communication between drivers.
  • Drunk driving is prohibited in Jordan. The law has been enforced more strictly during the last few years, and breaking it can lead to large fines or even imprisonment and deportation.
  • The insurance and car documentation needs to be in the car whenever you’re driving.
  • If you’re the driver, you need to have your passport or ID card with you at all times.
  • The police phone number in Jordan is 191 or 192, the fire brigade and ambulance number is 193.
  • When driving in southern Jordan, there are frequent police checkpoints, which are just routine control. The police are very polite to tourists — be sure to have your driver's license ready, and everything will be fine.  

Toll roads

Although there have been some suggestions to create them in the future,  there are no toll roads in Jordan as of 2023. 

Ideas for day trips

  • Jerash. Just like famous Petra, Jerash is an impressive archaeological site, but this one is much closer to the capital city. Historically known as the Roman city of Gerasa, it features many ancient structures like the Jerash nymphaeum and the Arch of Hadrian. Jerash is one hour’s drive north of Amman.
  • The Dead Sea. Featuring the world’s lowest elevation on land, the Dead Sea is very alive as a tourism destination. From sites mentioned in the Bible to a number of quality spas and the otherworldly Mujib Reserve, it has something for everyone. The sea’s northeastern coast is less than an hour’s drive south of Amman.
  • Madaba. Known as the “City of Mosaics”, cozy Madaba more than justifies its name with impressive Byzantine-era mosaic maps of Palestine and the Nile delta, among many others. Do not miss its ancient churches, shrines, and fortifications either. Madaba is just a 45 minute drive south of Amman. 
  • Salt. A small town that sometimes gets overlooked for more immediately spectacular sites around the country, Salt is nonetheless a lovely place to visit. Featured on a world heritage list, it is known for its well-preserved historic architecture and a lively local market. The drive from the capital takes about 50 minutes.
  • Bethany Beyond the Jordan (Al-Maghtas). Just a few kilometers north of the Dead Sea, there is a UNESCO World Heritage archaeological site where many Christians believe that Jesus of Nazareth was baptized by Saint John the Baptist. There are Roman and Byzantine-era ruins such as churches, a monastery, and pools in which baptisms took place.

Most popular cars

The most popular rental car in Amman is the Kia Picanto, closely followed by the Hyundai Grand i10 and Kia Cerato. The most popular rental car types are economy, compact, and full-size. 

Further destinations

  • Petra. One of the most famous sites in the Middle East, Petra is an ancient city, a large part of which is not built, but instead carved in rock. Impressive buildings that you won’t see anywhere else abound, as do historic sites and enormous caves. Petra can get quite crowded at times, but visiting will still be an experience of a lifetime. Petra is about a three hour drive south of Amman with 230 km (140 mi) to cover.
  • Aqaba. The only coastal city of Jordan, Aqaba is a famous tourist resort on the Red Sea. With great options for diving and other water sports, and a warm-to-hot climate throughout the year, it is a relaxing place where you can easily spend a couple of days or even a week. Located in the very southwest corner of Jordan, it takes about four hours to reach from Amman by car, but the long drive is worth it.
  • Wadi Rum. Another really famous Jordanian destination, Wadi Rum is a desert valley not far from of Aqaba. Known as the Valley of the Moon for its spectacular landscapes, it is also an important center of Bedouin culture. Wadi Rum is 314 km (195 mi) south of Amman.

Driving in Amman is totally insane , because none is falling roles , no traffic lights, but it was fun and good possibility to check your driving skills

public transport is hardly existing or if so, than not an option vs renting a car. You must rent one if you plan to visit other places than Amman.

The traffic is a mess in Amman, there are no rules as we know them in Europe, but you can get used to it. So the first few km-s you have to be extra cautious, then you will get the hang of it.

Be assertive when driving. It's fairly "free for all" but not aggressive. Drive along the Dead Sea to Aqaba is stunning.

Amman is my hometown and renting a car in summer with good price is very difficult. Discovercarhire helps a lot with peace of mined offering the full coverage at less than the local prices from the rental company. Its my third year that iam using discovercarhire and my overall experience is excellent

Amman and Jordan in general is great to visit, and well worth renting a car/driving in as it is much easier to get around with a car

Driving around Jordan is relatively easy - just don’t expect road markings!! Most tourist sites are well signposted in English and Arabic. Consider parking on outskirts of Amman though-the centre is a free for all with no discernible road rules!

If you're just staying in amman i dont recommend renting a car, but if you're going to places like petra i would definitely get a car.

Amman is awesome . Driving there could be stressful . But if you e driven in busy cities you get the hand for it . There’s parking almost everywhere - road signs are in English and google maps works well .

Driving outside of Amman is easy. Fuel more readily available than some guides/forums would have you believe. Be prepared to stop at police checkpoints. Caution many un-signed speed bumps that can be quite severe.

Avoid Amman, the traffic is horrendous and head out to see the rest of this stunning country as soon as you can.

Renting a car from this company is very easy, they are very helpful. Driving in Amman is a little challenging but not impossible, just leave enough breaking distance for any sudden manoeuvres. Once out of Amman be careful with speed humps appearing in the middle of fast highways, of potholes and oncoming traffic overtaking in the opposite direction. Sometimes there are no road markings or lanes.

It's cheapest way to travel, but driving in Jordan is hard, you have to be experienced driver. Roads are not very good, but a lot of repairs happening, hopefully will be better in couple of years.

Drivers in Amman are not polite, almost nobody shows turning signals, even though I haven't seen a single traffic accident, driving in Amman is pretty stressful

Renting a car in Jordan is the best way to explore the most interesting tourist sites. Renting a car in Amman however is not recommended as the traffic is very heavy.

Google Maps and GPS are not synced and streets on Google Maps (and Booking) are not correctly written so prepare in advance to have correct street names. Driving in Amman is hectic, especially for Europeans so be sure to buy full car insurance. It is better to buy insurance on arrival than online. Outside of Amman, driving is a piece of cake. Also, ask you dealer to explain you the procedure in case you get a ticket from the police. And enjoy because it's a beautiful country :)

For a driver not used to drive in big cities, amman will be challenging. The traffic there is very thick, especially during rush hours. Most people do not use turn signals and drive very cose to other cars. When 3 lanes are painted on the road, it means there are at least 4 lanes etc. etc. Although you will hear the horn a lot, driving in Amman is manageable. I will recommend only one thing: be prepared in advance, have a friend, with a gps (smartphone, tablet...) and an up to date map, as a navigator, it will save you a considerable amount of stress.

Easy to drive. Please do take a good car and explore Jordan, including Jerash, Amman, Dead Sea, Petra and Wadi Rum, which I did. Do not forget to take the mud bath and float on your back at the dead sea. Its amazing.

Car gives you a lot of freedom in Jordan. Just watch for speed bumps! There is a lot of police on the main roads, so watch your speed. Be focus all the time - Jordanians are very "easy-going" on roads.

Lanes are merely suggestions and drivers are quick to jump between spaces, but fair if you drive like they do. No aggression from other drivers, but I would suggest only driving if you are comfortable (or at least able to cope with) cars inches away from you at all times. Also, look out for speed bumps!

Excellent place to hire a car to go about Amman and rest of Jordan. The roads are just like in USA; wide. Good network of Motorway. Just make sure you have SatNav. The driving habbits of other resident drivers a little different but you will soon get used to it.

Traffic could be scary at times in Amman, however it's manageable and the route to get into the motorway is quick to reach. Parking could an issue so I suggest to plan in advance if booking an hotel, making sure there is an assigned parking

Amman and Jordan has many touristic places to visit and definitely you require a car since the public transport is not efficient and do not reach every where. you can easily use google maps which i see it is 80% accurate.
