The Arab state, Oman, is located on the southeast of the Arabian Peninsula. Mesmerising Muscat is the capital city of Oman and is located on the coast of the Arabian Sea. The city is the perfect fusion between old and new and filled with swanky restaurants mixed with white-washed suburbs.
If you're looking to explore the wider state, then hire a car in Oman and head to the city's most recognisable landmark – the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque. This prayer carpet took four years to make and weighs in at a staggering 21 tonnes. You can also view the spectacular chandelier which is 14 metres tall.
Rent a car from Oman National Travel & Tourism – Hertz Building No 77 which is conveniently located close to the city, and drive to Al Alam Palace. Also named the “Flag Palace”, it's the most important residence of the current monarch Sultan Qaboos. The palace is particularly flamboyant in design and is a great example of contemporary Islamic design. While it cannot be visited by the public, it can still be viewed from the outside. Something else you should not miss when in Muscat is turtle watching at Ras al Jinz. Here hundreds of green turtles leave the ocean so that they can lay eggs on the Sharqiya beach.
With a wide range of travellers passing through our locations every day, we've got a wide range of vehicles on offer to suit your needs - from smart executive saloons to compact family hatchbacks. ***

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
