The Financial Differences of Renting a Car in Jordan Versus the U.S.

December 16, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Summary: The costs of renting cars in Jordan are similar to those in the U.S. But you should buy more insurance when you are in an unfamiliar place, to protect yourself in case of a collision.

Renting cars during travel is always a good choice. You can get around from place to place fairly easily and do not have to wait on public transportation or arrange taxis every time you want to see the different sites. It does add to the budget, though. So make sure to take these factors into consideration before you decide to rent a car.

Previous Driving Experience

The more comfortable you are behind the wheel, the quicker you will be to adapt to the Jordanian roads and ways of driving. Roads can be crowded and narrow close to the tourist attractions, so you have to know how to maneuver the car around the streets to avoid accidents. Luckily, Jordan drives on the right side of the road, just like in the U.S.

Day Rates and Insurance Costs

This is a huge factor for you to consider. The day rates in Jordan range from 18 to 70 U.S. dollars for a standard sized vehicle, depending on the rental company. While in the U.S. the rates range from $9 to $58 for the same size and across the same companies. Keep in mind that one U.S. dollar converts to 0.71 Jordanian dollars.

Even though Jordanians also drive on the right side of the road, you want to make sure you are fully insured, in case of any collisions. You should purchase the extra insurance the rental company offers, because that would help keep your mind at ease when driving in the unfamiliar place.
