Hertz in Ras Al Khaimah

Car rental in Ras al-Khaimah is made incredibly easy thanks to Hertz’s conveniently located branch at Al Hamra Mall. Renting a car gives you the freedom and opportunity to explore this fascinating emirate and its rich history while enjoying a relaxing holiday. A car also gives you the benefit of air conditioning and shade — essential when travelling in the hot sun.

Ras Al-Khaimah is home to a diverse group of towns and cities each with their own cultural identity — and all within an easy drive of each other. You could, for instance, take one of the beach hotels in Ras Al-Khaimah City as your base and visit the town of Rams which was once known for pearl diving and is now famous for its bird watching. Or take a trip out to Sham to see the old wadi settlements and engravings in the rocks as well as a picturesque harbour.

Driving and Parking in Ras al-Khaimah

You will need a full driving licence and must be over 21 to rent a car in Ras al-Khaimah. If you are from outside the United Arab Emirates you will also need an International Driving Permit (IDP). For more information about driving regulations in Ras al Khaimah, take a look at our page about renting a car in the UAE.

Driving in Ras al-Khaimah can be a mixed experience. On the one hand, the roads are in excellent condition and navigation is pretty easy — particularly in the city itself. However, driving in Ras al Khaimah, as in the rest of the UAE, can be fairly chaotic since locals rarely pay heed to the rules of the road. Ensure your safety by observing speed limits, wearing your seatbelt (enforceable by law) and ensuring you follow the instructions on road signs.

When you rent a car in Ras al-Khaimah you will find that parking is much like the rest of the UAE with metered parking bays, pay-to-park car parks as well as free parking at your hotel. There are steep penalties if you park illegally or do not pay the correct charge so double check this before leaving your car.

Driving in and around Ras Al Khaimah

Key Routes

]The key route through Ras al-Khaimah is the Al Rams Road (E18) which runs through the middle of the emirate and connects the towns and cities to the International Airport. It also takes drivers past the pretty Saqr Park, which is well worth stopping at.
The Sheikh Rashed Bin Said Road is also pivotal as it links the E18 to the E11 motorway and, in turn, most of the other emirates in the UAE.

Major Highways

The biggest major road out of Ras al-Khaimah is the E11 motorway which runs along the Persian Gulf coast and connects Ras al-Khaimah to Sharjah, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Umm al Quwayn. At times the motorway offers some amazing coastal views as well as a taster of each of the key centres it runs through.
Speed limits vary on the motorway, usually running between 140km/h and 100km/h (between 85 and 60mph). Local signs will let you know what the speed limit is on any given stretch so you can ensure you don’t exceed it.
