Hertz in Doha

Hertz car rental in Doha is quick and easy, and as Qatar’s capital has such a wealth of cultural attractions it makes sense to choose car hire when you visit the city, making it easier to get around at your own pace. To rent a car in Doha just head for your nearest Hertz Car Rental branch and pick from the latest high-quality cars and vans.

Doha is a bright modern capital and has one of the best developed road networks in the Emirates, so getting around the city by car is a hassle-free and pleasurable experience, as well being the most efficient mode of transport. Cruising alongside the famous Doha Corniche, with its jogging paths and magnificent sea views, or to attractions such as the Qatar National Museum, are unique driving experiences.

Driving and Parking in Doha

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

If you rent a car in Doha be aware that on-street parking here is a mixture of metered and free space. Mall parking used to be free but increasingly now you’ll have to pay for it. Most apartment blocks and offices have their own underground parking areas, which require a permit to access. Hotels and shopping centres offer valet parking in most cases, sometimes free.

If you park illegally you will certainly receive a fine or penalty points, so always take note of road markings and parking notices. This is a modern metropolis and there are many different types of traffic offences on the statute books, although outside the central part of Doha parking is free. The usual method of paying fines is through the e-government website Hukoomi.

Driving in and around Doha

Key routes

Doha is a sprawling city and the best way to orientate yourself is by using two main routes in conjunction with some of the taller landmarks.

Medina Road is the city’s main thoroughfare. This runs all the way through Doha from al-Balad in the north.

Another main point for getting your bearings is the 30km long Corniche, which runs along the Red Sea coast and effectively connects the different parts of the city together. There is a network of smaller roads connecting these two thoroughfares, and numerous roundabouts which allow you to easily change direction and get to where you’re headed.

Major Highways

Road connections between Doha and the rest of Qatar are fairly good, and you can reach Fuwayrit for instance, which is 85km away, in just over an hour via the popular Al Shamal Road. There are just a few things to be aware of if you’ve never driven in Qatar before:

• Road users drive on the right hand side.
• If seat belts are fitted to your vehicle you must use them or risk a penalty.
• The petrol stations are plentiful but opening hours are not uniform and depend on location. Some have toilet facilities and AGM machines.
• Road signage is in dual language and has good coverage, with speed limits displayed at junctions and comprehensive information at roundabout exits.
• Speed limits are generally higher than in European cities. However, speed cameras are increasingly used across the country and in major cities such as Jeddah, so make sure you are aware of the limits and stick to them.
• There are several different types of pedestrian crossings, including pelican and zebra.
• Speed humps are common on many of the minor streets in Doha, but these vary in shape and can damage your car, and you should also watch out for deep potholes.
