Muscat is the capital of Oman and if you are planning a visit to this beautiful city anytime soon, Sixt has the car for you. The vehicles range from SUVs if you prefer going on off-road adventures, vans for families and friends wishing to travel together, to convertibles for those who love driving with the Oman sun shining directly above their heads, and wind blowing through their hair. That said, you can book the car of your choice from the car hire service online, and have it waiting for you when you fly in to Oman. Optional insurance options from this car rental in Oman include a damage waiver, and personal accident protection.
With a car rental in Muscat, you can check out some fascinating places such as the Forts of Nizwa, which are located about a one and a half hours' drive away from the city centre. The Forts' historical buildings were built in the 17th century by Sultan Bin Saif Al Ya'ribi. Reaching this attraction will ideally involve driving through the Hajar mountains, which also entails motoring across the oases of Birkat Al Mauz and Fanjah. That said, an SUV would be ideal for the journey, with the trip doubling as a 4x4 safari. For a general tour of the city, you can begin by driving through the embassy quarter, while heading to Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, which is one of the most unique Islamic architectures in Oman. Next, you can visit Muttrah to check out the fish market and buy a few if you wish to, then drive to Bait Al Zubair Museum, which showcases exhibits and information portraying the country's heritage, tradition, and culture.
