        What to keep in mind when renting a car in Egypt

        The minimum age to rent a car in Egypt is typically 25 years old. However, rental car policies can vary among companies, and some may allow younger drivers (between 21 and 24 years old) to rent a car. Many car rental companies worldwide, including those in Egypt, often impose young driver surcharges for renters under a certain age, typically between 21 and 25. This information is visible in the search engine with Orbit Car Hire.

At Orbit Car Hire, you can buy additional coverage to travel nationwide without worry. In Egypt, you drive on the right side of the road.
