Top tips for renting a car in Beirut

  • As a visitor to this small Lebanese city, rent a car rather than relying on the slow and crowded public buses. With the Mediterranean on one side and the mountains on the other, you can enjoy the freedom of exploring Beirut’s sights by car. Drive north in your hire car to discover Jbeil, one of Lebanon’s oldest districts.
  • Excited to rent a car on your Beirut vacation? If you fly into Beirut–Rafic Hariri International Airport, you will find only one terminal with four floors. The car hire desks are located on level one of the arrivals hall. There is also a Meet & Greet Service in the arrivals hall for car hire companies located off-site.
  • As a first-time driver in Beirut, you must remember to drive on the right side of the road and pass on the left. It’s acceptable to use your horn to alert other drivers and pedestrians when you’re passing. Driving around Beirut can be a bit of a challenge due to the lack of street names, and there is also limited lighting on some roads.
  • Beirut’s main rush hour is between 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm. If you drive along Corniche el Mazraa you can expect heavy traffic, especially in the morning, from 9:00 am to 10:00 am, as well as in the afternoon, around 2:00 pm until 6:00 pm. It’s best to completely avoid driving into the city on a Sunday evening. If you plan on driving to the mountains, avoid traveling on a Friday evening or a Saturday morning.
