Driving in Jordan

Jump to last reply

Hi, we're thinking of going to Jordan next Easter and think the best way to get around would be to hire a car to give us better flexibility and it will probably be cheaper as there are 4 of us to share costs. We would pick it up at the airport in Amman and drive via the Dead Sea to Petra where we'd want to stay for at least 2 days. Then going to Wadi Rum for another couple of days before finishing at Aqaba where we would leave the car.

Firstly, does anyone know whether picking up and leaving a hire car at different locations will cost a significant amount extra?
2) we assume fuel is cheap (compared to UK at least!) but is that true?
3) what are driving conditions like and is it an easy/safe country to drive in?
4) Will I need an international driving license or is my UK one satisfactory?
5) From Aqaba, we might want to cross into Israel and then go to Jerusalem before flying back from Tel Aviv. Can we take a rental car across with us should we want to or would it be more sensible to hire a 2nd car at Eilat in Israel?
Lastly, are we missing anywhere interesting on our route in Jordan that we should go and see?

Thanks for your help!
