Hertz in Lebanon

Lebanon is a small country that’s easy to travel around in a very short time. However, its public transport systems are not particularly efficient, so renting a car is one of the easiest and fastest ways to travel. It’s also one of the most comfortable, taking you out of the extreme heat of the Middle Eastern sun and putting you in an air conditioned car.

Hertz Car Rental has branches in Beirut, including one at the airport and one at the Ministry of Industry, making renting a car in Lebanon quick and convenient whether you’ve just arrived or are in the middle of a stay in Beirut.

Rules and regulations for driving in Lebanon

Lebanon is no different to anywhere else in that there are strict rules of the road to be followed at all times. These include:

• You must always drive on the right in Lebanon.
• Turning on a red light is illegal unless there is a sign indicating that it is safe to do so.
• The driver and all passengers in a vehicle must wear seatbelts at all times. There is a payable fine if you are caught not wearing one.
• Children should never travel in the front passenger seat.
• Drink driving is also illegal and you will be prosecuted if caught.
• Speeding is illegal and police are increasingly setting up speed traps to catch drivers breaking the limit, although currently there are no fixed speed cameras.
• You will also be fined and/or prosecuted if you are caught using your mobile phone while driving. Make sure you use a hands free kit.
• It is illegal to leave the scene of an accident until the police have arrived.
• You should have all of your licence, insurance and registration documents in the car with you at all times, as well as a copy of your passport.
• There are plenty of parking spaces and car parks in Lebanon’s cities, but on-street parking limits are enforced — particularly in Beirut where it is often restricted to just two hours.

Although not strictly a rule of the road, you should take care to avoid animals in the road if you are driving in more rural areas. There can be heavy snow in the Bekaa region if you are driving in winter, so be aware of the changing weather and drive according to the road conditions.

 

Driving in and around Lebanon

Special attractions

Anyone wanting to go racing in Lebanon should check out the Need for Speed Karting Arena in Hadath, Beirut. Open daily, you can test your mettle as you speed around one of the biggest go-karting tracks in Lebanon. If your travels take you outside Beirut, you could try the go-karting at Pit Stop Karting, which can be found at Zouk Mosbeh.

If you’re looking for a scenic route to drive in Lebanon, you can drive the full length of the coast with amazing views out to sea, taking you through Tripoli, Beirut and down to the south of the country. However, drivers in Lebanon should be careful to take travel advice before approaching certain parts of the country and its borders due to ongoing conflicts in neighbouring lands.

Required documents:

Renting a car in Lebanon requires you to show specific documents at the time of rental:
• Lebanon residents need to show their Lebanese driver’s licence, which must have been held for at least one year, as well as their passport for identification purposes.
• Those from outside Lebanon will require their national driver’s licence plus their passport and International Driver’s Permit (IDP) in order to be able to rent a car in the country.
• Customers wishing to rent a car in Lebanon who hold a driving licence from the People’s Republic of China must also have an official Hertz Certification Form issued by Hertz China on Hertz notepaper with a Hertz China Corporate Seal.
• Customers wishing to rent a car in Lebanon with driving licences issued in Vietnam who must present their original licence along with an authorised translation from the Vietnamese Ministry of Transport.

• Refuelling at petrol stations: Customers need to keep their rental cars topped up with fuel, but petrol stations are prolific in Lebanon, making this easy. Most are open long hours and some have 24-hour accessibility.

• Travelling with children: Child seats are not mandatory by law in Lebanon, but some customers travelling with children may wish to use one. If so, you can hire a child seat when you rent your vehicle for an additional fee of $5.50 per day, including tax.
