Essential driving tips for tourists in Muscat, Oman

  • Driving in Muscat, offers a unique and generally pleasant experience, especially compared to many other capital cities. Here are some key tips to keep in mind:
  • Road Conditions: Muscat has good road infrastructure, with three to four lane highways connecting it to other cities like Sur and Nizwa. The highways are smooth and well-maintained. However, beyond Muscat and off the main highways, you may encounter older, narrower one-lane roads that can end suddenly or become narrow, so caution is advised​​.
  • Speed Bumps and Speed Cameras: Speed bumps are common, especially on back roads, and not all are clearly signposted. Driving at night can be challenging due to these unmarked speed bumps and poor lighting on backstreets. Additionally, speed cameras are abundant on main highways and throughout Muscat, so it's important to adhere to the speed limits to avoid fines​​.
  • Driving Behavior: The driving skills of local Omanis can vary. You might encounter erratic or inconsiderate driving, including instances where drivers create imaginary lanes or overtake unexpectedly. High vigilance and awareness are required when driving in Muscat​​.
  • Prayer Times: You may notice cars pulling over at certain times of the day for prayer. This is common in Muslim countries, and drivers may conduct their prayers on the side of the road if they cannot reach a mosque​​.
  • Fuel Costs: Petrol is relatively cheap in Muscat. You won't see prices marked outside service stations as they are regulated by the government and reviewed monthly. Prices are the same across all stations​​.
  • Car Rentals: Car rentals are readily available in Muscat, with most agencies enforcing a mileage limit of around 250 km per day. Charges apply for extra kilometers driven. This is something to consider if you plan on extensive driving​​.
  • Parking: Parking is mostly free in Muscat, except for some busy areas like the Muttrah Souq. This makes it convenient for tourists using rental cars to explore the city​​.
  • Vehicle Choice: Whether you need a 2WD or 4WD depends on your itinerary. For city driving and main highways, a 2WD is sufficient. However, for trips to places like Jebel Shams, Jebel Ahktar, or the deserts of Wahiba, a 4WD is recommended. 
  • General Tips: As with driving in any new location, it's important to familiarize yourself with local traffic laws and road conditions. Using navigation aids like Google Maps can help, though downloading maps for offline use is recommended as voice-guided functionality might not work in Muscat​​.

By keeping these tips in mind, tourists can have a safe and enjoyable driving experience in Muscat.
