Cairo Airport Guide


Egypt’s main gateway is Cairo International Airport. There are non-stop flights from most major African, Asian, North America and European cities to Cairo International, and it is situated in Heliopolis, 22km northeast of central Cairo. Despite the numbers of tourists arriving every year, the airport isn’t terribly modern or comfortable, with inadequate conveniences.

There are two terminals in the airport, connected by a courtesy shuttle bus. The bus runs around the clock, leaving the terminals every 30 minutes. Terminal 1 is known as the Old Airport, while Terminal 2 is called the New Airport.

Bank and ATMs are available at the airport and a 24-hour bureau de change and post office are situated in the Departures hall at both terminals.

A basic restaurant is available in the airport and there is a bar in the Departures halls of both terminals. However, there are inadequate facilities in the public areas (pre security), and passengers are not permitted to check in more than an hour early, so you are advised not to arrive too early.

Gift shops, clothes shops, bookshops and newsagents, are available in the Departures halls of both terminals and in the new transit hall. Duty-free shops are situated at arrivals and departure of both terminals.

Porters and baggage trolleys are available as are left luggage facilities, located in both Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. A pharmacy is located in the Departures hall in terminals 1 and 2.

A business centre is available in Terminal 1, linked by an escalator to the new transit hall. Business facilities and conference facilities are also provided by the Novotel Cairo Airport Hotel (tel: (0)2 918 520).

Passengers with special needs should contact their airline for assistance, while wheelchairs are available on request. Disabled toilets are available, but there are no designated parking spaces for disabled drivers.

You will find information counters in both Terminal 1 (Old Airport) and Terminal 2 (New Airport), in both Arrivals and Departures halls and also in the new transit hall.

To & From

Buses run from the airport to central Cairo. An airport bus service departs from Terminal 1 (Old Airport). Bus no. 400 departs every 30 minutes during the day and hourly during the night.

Black and white taxis run between the airport and central Cairo. They depart from outside the Arrivals hall. This is the most popular option and not too costly, but make sure you agree on a price before the journey. Cairo traffic is notoriously hair-raising and congested.

Limousines serving central Cairo, also depart from the airport. Black Mercedes limousines depart in front of the Arrivals hall.

If driving from Cairo city centre, cross the 6th October Bridge, via Salah Salem Road which will lead to Heliopolis. Signage from the city centre to the airport and Heliopolis is good.

Short-term carparking with a capacity of 1000 cars is located within walking distance of the terminal buildings. The Teminal 1 carpark outside Terminal 1 was renovated in 2002.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
