1.9 Horrible27 Sep 2021
There’s no clarity they don’t answer their phone their address is not correct they wasted my time
5.9 Okay27 Aug 2021
They did not honer my first reservation. I made sure when they called me before I travel that I will be at 11:00 pm and gave them my flight number. When I came out of the arrival gate no one was at their booth. I called there number 3 times but no one answered. I had to leave by taxi at a high rate. I called from my hotel, explained the situation so they promised to keep my reservation to pick up the car at 1pm next day. When I went to the airport, I found they cancelled the reservation. Had to make another reservation at a high prices. It is really a bad situation. They were not a professional car rental. I will not go there again!!!

10.0 Excellent12 Jun 2021
Driving in Egypt is NOT easy for western tourists, but having a rental car was critical to having the best Egypt experience. Avis offered a great deal on unlimited miles and pick up was easy. Drop off was so clear, but after 10 days in Egypt, your expectations of order and process will be recalibrated. Considering that, drop off wasn’t bad. There were no clear instruction where to return, so a best guess had us parking pretty much anywhere then calling the Avis rep to meet you out front. Be sure to write down your Avis rep’s phone and contact info. We had a Vodaphone local SIM card to make and receive local calls. Available at the airport and all over Egypt for cheap.Would have been nice to have a more streamlined drop off process. I ended up walking across the airport trying to figure it out. Compared to US car rental return, no quite as smooth. Compared to ANYTHING in Egypt, returning the car was one of the easier things to accomplish. Prepare to be flexible and creative.

5.9 Okay15 Oct 2021
They prepare a compact car for me, I did sign the contract, did car inspection with agent, when I asked for car registration card, it was not there. Thankful they upgraded me to SUV car. They charged me $ 0.3 for extra kilometer although it showed $ 0.25 when I did the reservation.
4.0 Okay9 May 2021
The car was clean and in good working condition.I had to wait about an hour for the person to come with the car. Despite booking the car for 6:00 AM, and calling the day before to confirm I could pick it up at that time, I learned when I arrived that the person with they keys to the car wouldn't come until normal working hours started (8:00 AM). Additionally, the mileage costs were not very good. The extra mileage charges for one day of use were about five times the cost of the rental itself.

Top tips for hiring a car in Cairo

  • Car hire in Cairo is ideal for those looking to make the most of their time in this big city. Whether you want to explore the sights of the city itself, such as the Khan el-Khalili bazaar and the Hanging Church, or want to drive out to visit the Great Pyramid of Giza, driving will enable you to move around at your own pace and will help you avoid a hectic public transport experience.
  • You will find car hire desks in all 3 terminals of Cairo International Airport (CAI), all easily accessible inside the terminal building itself. While Terminal 2 only has a limousine service offered by Sixt, you will find a large number of car hire companies for your Cairo car hire in Terminals 1 and 3. These include a number of local companies, as well as some international ones such as Europcar, Budget and Enterprise.
  • When driving your car hire in Cairo, it is important to take into consideration the following handy tips. Local drivers rarely use indicators, so try not to get too close to the car in front of you as they might suddenly turn without a warning. Traffic signals are not very common in Cairo, which makes turning left a bit tricky on some of the more major roads. Make sure you also keep an eye out for pedestrians, as jaywalking is very common.
  • Cairo is notorious for having heavy traffic any time of the day, but you should especially try to avoid driving during rush hour, which falls between 8:00 and 9:00 in the morning and between 16:00 and 18:00 in the evening. Some of the city’s most congested roads at those times are the Ring Road, as well as the Moneeb, May 15 and 6th of October bridges. The roads also generally get busy after the Maghrib prayer which happens at sunset, and the Isha prayer which happens sometime between 19:00 and 20:00, depending on the time of the year.
