If you're hiring a vehicle from Beirut-Rafic Hariri International Airport you'll find it's quite easy to travel into downtown Beirut. You'll be met in arrivals by one of our representatives who will hand over the keys and rental agreement to you, then it's just a case of sitting back in your comfortable rental and making the short journey into the Beirut Central District. The easiest road to take is Route 51M and this takes you all the way into central Beirut. Driving around central Beirut can be a little confusing, that's why we recommend you take the GPS navigation option when you book your vehicle.

Once you've collected your affordable rental you'll be ready to start exploring the area around Beirut, you'll find that Route 51M goes straight up the coast to Tripoli, passing through Jounieh and Byblos, and making an ideal weekend getaway road trip.

Sixt Tip

Sixt Tip

Parking can be difficult in Beirut, if you know you will be driving in the city centre a good deal then consider renting a smaller vehicle so you can take advantage of the smallest parking spaces. Also get used to using your horn more while driving in Lebanon. It's a good idea to give a toot on the horn any time you overtake another vehicle, as this alerts them to your presence.

There aren't many major routes or roads in Beirut, so be prepared to spend a lot of driving time gridlocked as the roads do get extremely congested.

Beirut is renowned for its lively nightlife and is a popular tourist destination, so finding a parking space early in the evening is always a good idea if you're on a night out in the capital city.
