Driving as a tourist in Oman

Is driving in Oman safe? If you drive within the limits of the city of Muscat, you will not face any problem but as you cross the limits of the city, beware of animals like goats or camels walking on the roads.

Avoid driving if its raining heavily as the roads might be flooded. Apart from these limitations, there are no problems related to driving a car in Oman as the condition of roads is comparatively better compared to other such destinations.

Important tips

  • Avoid using cell phone while driving in Oman and follow the set speed limits to avoid penalties and getting your speed reduced with the speed reducers which are everywhere in this country.

  • Prefer a car rental in Oman as the network of public transport isn’t much developed. Plus, you can enjoy the stunning views in Oman with the help of an independent car.

  • When you are going on a road trip, always carry your own refreshments and do keep in mind that in Oman, it’s against the law to throw out any waste from the car.

  • Most of the other traffic laws in Oman are pretty adherent to the international standards. Oman is strict when it comes to drunk driving so it’ll be great if you avoid it at any cost.

  • Locals are accustomed to overtaking at a very high speed, keep calm in this case as this is very normal in Oman. Slow drivers must stick to the right-hand side of the road.

  • Oman's jagged mountains offer some splendid scenery and the best opportunities for driving.
