Sharm el-Sheikh Airport in a nutshell
Sharm el-Sheikh Airport is the gateway to the holiday resorts in the south of the Sinai in Egypt. A new, third terminal will be inaugurated in 2012.
The airport is situated 18 kilometers northeast of Sharm el-Sheikh and 10 kilometers from the popular beach Na'ama Bay. There's no train connection with the airport. Officially a minibus runs from the airport to the beaches, but most of the time it doesn't run. The airport is easily reachable by car, but the roads between the beaches and the airport can be quite busy.
The airport has few eating and drinking facilities and shops. Many travelers complain about this airport's service level, especially the hygiene in the restrooms. Except for a VIP lounge the airport doesn't offer business facilities. These can be found in the larger holiday resorts, like the Hilton Resort which offers meeting and conference rooms. Other facilities at Sharm el-Sheikh Airport include exchange offices, ATMs, and travel agencies.
In the aviation business Sharm el-Sheikh Airport is indicated by the abbreviations SSH (IATA airport code) and HESH (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).
