Expedia car hire in Sharm El Sheikh comes with No Hidden Fees

Choose to hire a car in Sharm el Sheikh and you'll make it easy to discover a range of Egypt's sightseeing spots and activities. You can make your own way to a variety of seaside destinations, most with their own private beaches, and spend your days unwinding on the sand. This Red Sea resort offers every kind of entertainment, from ice skating to shopping to water sports. For adventure seekers, Sharm is also a prime diving location.

Sharm el Sheikh covers a large area, including the two coves of Na’ama Bay and Sharm el Maya, so car hire is a convenient option if you want to explore its surrounds. Renting a vehicle also gives you the freedom to venture outside the city, whenever and wherever you feel like going. Whether you are intending to hire a car for just a day, or for your entire trip, there are lots of flexible options to choose from.

Hiring a Car from Sharm el Sheikh Airport (SSH)

You can skip the hassle of sorting out airport transfers by picking up your hire car as soon as you land. At Sharm el Sheikh Airport you’ll find plenty of familiar car hire companies like Europcar and Sixt. You can book deals online before you travel to ensure that you have a seamless arrival experience.

Hiring a Car in Sharm el Sheikh

If you’d rather hire a car at the resort instead of the airport, Europcar also has a pickup point in the city of Sharm el Sheikh. The airport is located about 6 miles northeast of Sharm, and the journey between the two takes about 15 minutes. Your booking might already include a free transfer service, in which case your rep will meet you in the terminal. If not, you will find drivers waiting outside the airport building offering transfers at competitive prices, and these do not need to be booked in advance. Europcar’s rental point is in Na’ama Bay, close to the waterfront, and other city locations offer services like limo car rental.

Drive Around the Sinai Peninsula

Sharm el Sheikh sits on the Sinai Peninsula, a stunning place to tour by car. No visit to the area is complete without a trip to Mount Sinai or St. Catherine’s Monastery, which sits at the foot of the mountain. With your own car, however, you will be able to venture beyond the well-trodden visitor routes. On the inner peninsula, you can explore the ruins of an ancient temple at Serabit el-Khadim, enjoying awe-inspiring desert scenery on the journey there.

Take an Egyptian Road Trip

Once you’ve gotten used to driving in Egypt, you might decide to take a longer trip out of Sharm el Sheikh – for example, by travelling the 300 miles to Cairo. Just remember that the free visa most visitors obtain at the airport is valid only for travel in the Sinai area for a period of seven days. If you wish to go beyond this region, or stay longer, you will have to purchase a tourist visa.
