Hertz in Amman

Hertz car rental in Amman is remarkably easy, and as the Jordanian capital has so many fabulous attractions it makes sense to explore both it and the surrounding region by hire car. If you want to rent a car in Amman you’ll find branches of Hertz car rental at many convenient locations around the city.

Amman is a paradise for drivers, with excellent roads and plenty of good street-side parking. With attractions such as the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Petra to see, as well as the Roman amphitheatre and three medieval castles, if you’re into archaeology you’ll have a great time here. A cultural crossroads with beautifully maintained highways and fixed petrol prices, it’s very easy to get around.

Driving and Parking in Amman

You will need a full driving licence and must be over 21 to rent a car in Amman, and you will also need to bring an International Driving Permit (IDP) along with you. For more information about driving regulations in Amman, take a look at our page about renting a car in Jordan.

If you rent a car in Amman you’ll find parking refreshingly easy, especially if you’re more used to European cities or other parts of the Middle East. Side-street parking is particularly abundant. Many vehicles park on the pavements and, occasionally, in the middle of streets!

There’s a tremendous amount of parking freedom in the city, and the few parking regulations that exist are not rigorously enforced. The belief here is that everyone should be able to park as close as possible to their destination, and traffic seems to find its own level. Only in the central part of Amman is side-street parking seriously regulated, and you’ll usually find it most convenient to park outside the centre and walk in.

Driving in and around Amman

Key routes

Most of Amman’s roundabouts are located along this road and these are the main exit points for getting to all other parts of the city.

Mecca Street runs parallel to Zahran Street in an East-West direction. It is also known locally as Mecca Al-Mukarramehe Street.

Wakkalat Street in the shopping district of Swefiyeh is fully pedestrianised.

Airport Road forms the main connecting highway south of Jordan after passing through the airport from Prince Talal bin Muhammad Square.

Major Highways

The main road through Amman city centre is Zahran Street, which most drivers find themselves on regularly as it connects residential with shopping areas.

The roads in and around Amman are in such good condition, all paved and well maintained, that getting around by car here is easy. Just bear a few things in mind should you be driving in Jordan for the first time:

• Most of Jordan’s roads are not divided into lanes by markings, and it’s normal to experience overtaking on both sides.
• You drive on the right throughout the country.
• Normal practice is to sound your horn before overtaking, as a warning to other traffic, and indicating of course also helps.
• Motorists always respect the traffic lights, with miscreants captured on cameras places strategically at junctions and roundabouts.
• Right of way on roundabouts is down to individual drivers and common sense is required.
• There are plenty of directional signs along the roads in both English and Arabic, and all of them can be relied on to get you to where you’re going.
• Use the big brown signs for accessing sites of historic and archaeological interest, and if you get lost don’t hesitate to ask the friendly locals.
• Speed humps and inadequate lighting make driving at night a bit more tricky.
