Presumably the likes of Hertz, Europcar and Avis operate from the airport...and maybe in town. You can check the rates online.

Although they might be more expensive than some local outfit, at least you know the insurance is valid if you have any problems! :lol:

Annie, are you asking about self drive or chauffeured?

It has generally been the case that the there have been no recommendations for Self Drive. There have been many reasons give for Self Drive, if it is actually available, not being a good option.

Hiring a car with driver in Egypt is usually considered the best option. It may well be the most cost effective method too.

I was going to post something about you posting with your tongue firmly in your cheek. Having checked the website, I won't be doing that. I'm surprised there is a Europcar at Luxor airport. I checked for car hire a few years back and although the websites came up with Luxor the actual page was always blank. Having checked the link you gave they do actually seem to have some cars on offer. I'm still not sure I'd trust it through to the final booking bit - but who am I to know if it's true or not.

I've used Europcar from Hurghada airport and found them basically the same as anywhere in Europe.

I wouldn't rent off a local firm.......I'd have no confidence in them in the event I had an accident.

Provided its got a hooter, all should be well.. :lol: I hired one at Cairo Airport for the day to drive the other side of the City. All was well but the car was a pain in the butt! So was the other drivers.

If you do find an answer to this elsewhere, I hope you will report back here and ler us know how you got on.
It is a question that has been asked many times in the past. If there are well known hire companies working out of Luxor airport ( and from newcastle's europcar link it would seem there are) or elsewhere in town, it would be helpful to hear a firsthand account af an experience with them.
