Location information for Cairo

Introduction

Cairo is one of the largest cities in Africa and the Middle East. The Egyptian capital houses an enormous collection of archeological treasures in the Egyptian Museum and the pyramids west of the city are also a tourist attraction. Cairo is also the operating base for trips south to visit other pyramids and temples of the days of the pharaohs.

Population

The city itself has almost 7 million inhabitants, but the urban area stretches out over a huge area. Over 16 million people live in the entire metropolitan area.

Location

Cairo is located on the Nile River in the northern part of the country, known as Lower Egypt. The Mediterranean lies 165 kilometers north; the Suez Canal runs 120 kilometers east of Cairo. Just north of the Egyptian capital the Nile River splits up into several rivers: the extensive Nile Delta.

Economy

Cairo is the economic, commercial, cultural, social and political heart of Egypt. Two-thirds of the national income is earned here. Tourism is an important pillar of the economy. The country also earns money with arms traffic, oil sales, production of apparel and food processing. There was and is a lot of construction in Cairo. This explosion of construction has fallen out of step with utilities such as water and electricity. There are entire neighborhoods where these basic facilities are not or barely present.

Airports

The Egyptian capital's airport, Cairo International Airport, is situated 22 kilometers northeast of the city center. The construction of a new toll road has made the airport easily reachable by rental car from the beltway around Cairo. The way to the airport is clearly signposted.

Public Transport

Cairo has an extensive network of buses, but they are often packed and the destination is also not always clear. Taxis are a better option. There are two types of taxis: black/white taxis without a meter for which you need to negotiate a price with the driver (serious bargaining), and the yellow taxis which do have a meter. There are also subways (two lines), but except for Old Cairo (also Coptic Cairo) few tourist places of interest lie along the subway route.

Traffic and Parking

Driving in Cairo is not for those who aren't used to chaos as this is the best way to describe the traffic in the Egyptian capital: a crisscross of cars, buses, motorbikes and other means of transportation with drivers who don't care about signs or rules. Strangely enough parking isn't a big problem: Egyptians simply double- or triple-park their car, leaving their doors unlocked. There are always unofficial parking attendants around who not only guard the cars, but also move them when necessary.

Hotels

Cairo has an enormous choice of accommodations. In the city center you'll mainly find budget hotels, some of dubious quality. Luxury hotels can be found on the Nile, on Zamalek Island and in the district Garden City, south of the city center. In the last years, many midrange hotels have sprung up in Midan Ramses (around the station of the same name).

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

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. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
