KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Salalah

  • A car rental in Salalah is a convenient way to get around the town and explore Oman. While you may find local buses in Salalah, there is very little public transport connecting the town with other locations around Oman. Therefore, having a car allows you to travel freely around the country and discover the best of what Oman has to offer – from the Dhofar mountains and Ayn Khor waterfall near Salalah, around the coast of the Gulf of Oman, to the glittering capital Muscat.
  • You can find a number of car rental providers at Salalah International Airport (SLL), which is only around 15min by car from the city centre. Salalah car rentals are available from Europcar, Budget and Alamo, and their service desks are located on the ground floor of the main terminal building. In order to secure your preferred vehicle and a better price for your car rental in Salalah, it’s wise to book your vehicle in advance through KAYAK. If you wish to travel to other countries bordering Oman during your stay, you should check if this is permitted by your rental provider first.
  • Vehicles in Oman are driven on the right-hand side of the road and usually operate on automatic transmissions. While some bigger roads in Salalah are named, with signage written in both Arabic and English, many minor roads are denoted by numbers. It is a good idea to opt for a GPS for your car rental in Salalah to make it easier to navigate in the city. When driving outside the city, it is customary to sound your car’s horn when going around corners on winding mountain roads.
  • Traffic is usually very manageable in Salalah but may be heavy getting in and out of Muscat, if you plan to drive to the capital. If you are planning to drive outside of Salalah, make sure you have filled up with fuel before you leave, as there can be large distances between petrol stations. When driving in rural areas, you should always be aware of livestock, as it is not uncommon for sheep, goats or camels to wander onto roads. Flash flooding can also cause sudden road closures and diversions.
  • Book your rental car in Salalah at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate rental cars in Salalah are around 38% cheaper than other car types, on average

For getting around the city, an economy or mini is a comfortable choice, while larger full-size vehicles and passenger vans will suit families and travellers arriving with a lot of luggage or who need extra space. It’s also worth noting that while Omani roads are generally in good condition, particularly in built-up urban areas and on highways, smaller roads in the mountains and desert regions may be less developed. Travellers planning to drive in rural or mountainous areas may therefore prefer to drive an SUV.

  • What's the speed limit in Salalah?

    The speed limit in Salalah varies between 40 and 80 km/h, depending on road size. This increases to 90 km/h on open roads and 120 km/h on motorways. Traffic-calming measures like speed bumps and cameras are common in and around Salalah. While it is common to see drivers speeding along the left-hand overtaking lane on motorways and tailing or beeping other vehicles to go faster, don’t be tempted to speed. Cameras are set up at frequent intervals on highways and going over the limit can result in fines.

  • Where are the best places to park in Salalah?

    Many hotels in Salalah offer free parking for guests. You can also find several public car parks in the city at various sites, from beach resorts and restaurants in Salalah itself to nature reserves and viewpoints beyond the city.

This costs around OMR 0.5 (INR 104) for 30min and about OMR 2 (INR 414) for a day.

The company booked the car for an extra day by mistake and charged me for it. I filed a complaint and waiting for the refund. Apart from that the experience was good.

There was no one waiting for us at the counter when we arrived, and we had to wait 30-40 for them to come. It took us a long time coming through customs and immigration so the agent just left. We wanted a 4WD and I checked the model we reserved online prior to booking but that was not a reliable way to ensure we had a 4WD, which Dollar did not provide in Salalah. On our last day, the Dollar agent called us asking when we were returning the vehicle, though we still had hours until the scheduled return time. This would not have been a concern except that the call incurred international charges.

Cons:

Its horrable after reserving and detucting the fees the company informed me that no such car available!! I want my money back!

6.8 Okay

KAYAK

Pros:

pickup/drop off was easy. they replaced the car when their rental broke down (bad battery).

Cons:

They overcharged me for booking a 'standard' size car, which I understood to be a full size car. It turns out they gave me a midsize car only. Be careful not to be tricked by their shady tactics and false car categorization.
