Location information for Muscat

Introduction

For more than two thousand years, Muscat, the capital of Oman, has played an important role as trading center between the East and the West. The city was captured by Portugal at the beginning of the sixteenth century. The Bahla Fort at the harbor, which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a relic of those days. After the colonial days, the sultans of Oman went looking for adventure themselves and drove away the Portuguese from Zanzibar and East Africa. They even made Zanzibar their capital. This ended when two of the sultan's sons became rivals. The conflict was resolved by British mediation: one son got Zanzibar, the other Oman.

Population

The city has over 1 million inhabitants.

Location

Muscat is located on the north coast of Oman, a country in the southeast of the Arabian Peninsula. The old part of this Arabian city is a popular tourist destination, but the rest of the country also draws many visitors. Especially since, contrary to other countries in this region, the wadis (small rivers) contain water almost all year round creating many green oases in Oman's desert. The country also has beautiful beaches. Oman borders with the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Yemen.

Economy

Oil extraction and export play an important role in the economy, but Oman's oil reserves are limited. Therefore the country (and the capital) aims at attracting other industries, mainly IT and telecommunication. Agriculture and fishing play a minor role. Tourism is of increasing importance for the city and the country. The old city of Muscat and the fortresses, castles, deserts, oases and sandy beaches draw more and more visitors.

Airports

The airport of Oman's capital, Muscat International Airport (before: As Seeb Airport), is situated 30 kilometers west of the old city center. The more modern districts are located closer to the airport. The airport is easily reachable by rental car via Al Sultan Qaboos Street.

Public Transport

Minibuses, so-called baiza, are the most popular form of public transport. They run everywhere in Muscat, between the old city and the airport, and can take you to various destinations. It may sometimes be difficult to find out the destination of a baiza. There are also larger buses in Muscat, but only on the main roads.

Traffic and Parking

The main roads in and around Muscat are excellent. If you not only want to drive in the city, but also in the rest of the country, it's best to rent a 4WD. The signposting in Muscat can be confusing. Prepare yourself by buying a good road map. Parking isn't a problem in Muscat, but the narrow alleys in the old city aren't accessible for cars.

Hotels

Muscat has a large choice of luxurious four- and five-star accommodations. This doesn't mean there aren't any cheaper options. The midrange and budget categories are also well represented, especially near the Corniche, the boulevard along the sea. There are basic guesthouses for budget travelers (isteraha in Arab), but the quality differs. Check your room before booking it.

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).
