List of 4×4 Rentals in Oman

Oman has one of the most diverse landscapes in the region. Outside the towns and cities, you will find mountains, deserts, wadis, and sea coasts that are truly breathtaking! What’s more, camping in the wild is allowed!

Of course, to be able to visit and explore these areas, you’ll need a vehicle that can go off-road. This is where 4x4s and rentals come in. We have previously talked about how you can buy a new car, but this time around, we will talk about renting 4x4s or 4WDs in Oman.

Requirements for Renting a Car in Oman

If you are here in Oman for just a short period of time, or if you are planning a camping trip, renting a vehicle is the way to go. To be able to rent a 4×4 — or any car, for that matter — you will need to prepare the following documents:

  • Proof of identification (e.g. passport); and
  • Valid International Driving Permit.

NOTE: The driving age in Oman is 18, although in most cases, you need to be at least 21 years old to be able to rent a car.

Where to Rent 4×4 Vehicles in Oman
