Transportation in Jordan

Car Rental

Jordan has an excellent and expanding road network, and renting a car can be a good way to see the country. A driving license valid in your country of origin is acceptable, provided you have held it for at least one year. Driving is on the right. Road signs on the highways are in Arabic and English. Brown signs are designed for tourists. There are plenty of petrol stations in Amman and other cities, and on most highways. In PV travels we can arrange a rent-a-car before you travel to Jordan.



Several companies offer charter bus and regular tours in a fleet of modern, air-conditioned coaches. If you're looking for easy transportation from Amman to some of Jordan's must-see tourism attractions you might consider taking the bus. JETT, one of Jordan's leading transportation companies, offers several trips (some daily and some weekly) to various destinations including Petra, the Dead Sea and Ma'in Hot Springs in addition to Amman city tours in their brand-new buses.



Taxis are inexpensive and often the most convenient form of transportation in Jordan, even over substantial distances, such as the trip between Amman and Aqaba. The white-painted "service taxis" ride fixed routes and are shared. Private taxis are painted yellow; they can be taken from ranks outside larger hotels, or hailed in the street. Taxis have meters, but these are not always used at night, so it is advisable to agree on the cost beforehand. The same applies to long journeys. Taxi drivers are friendly, know the city well, and usually speak English.
