Cairo Airport in a nutshell
In recent years Cairo Airport has undergone a major renovation. The terminals are extremely modern and a so-called people mover, a small automatic train, runs between the terminals.
The airport is situated 22 kilometers northeast of the city center of Cairo, Egypt's capital. There's no train connection with the airport yet, but a subway line is being constructed connecting the airport with Mohandesin station in 2012. Because a toll road was constructed between the airport and the Egyptian capital the airport is easily reachable by car and bus.
The airport has a modern and reasonably extensive shopping area and some restaurants grouped around Food Plaza. There are five VIP lounges and a business center offering basic business services. For business meetings you can book a conference or meeting room in one of the two airport hotels (Novotel and Le Meridien). Wireless internet is available and other facilities at Cairo Airport include banks, exchange offices, ATMs, children's playgrounds, and a post office.
In the aviation industry Cairo Airport is indicated by the abbreviations CAI (IATA airport code) and HEKA (ICAO airport code).

Frequently asked questions
Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest?
Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.
What do I need to do when picking up a car?
To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
Are there any additional costs?
Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period).
What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?
In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.
What is a worry-free label?
This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation.
