Sharm El Sheik Guide

Sharm el Sheik has become Egypt’s premier tourist and resort area. With magnificent diving, hotels, resorts, beaches, desert trekking and restaurants, this area is the perfect place for a relaxing or active holiday.

The Ras Muhammad Natural Park, at the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula, was established in 1983 to protect the coral reefs and the area’s fragile environment. This park contains one of the world’s most famous dive sites. The colors and life in this amazing coral reef will stun scuba divers as well as casual snorkellers.

There is plenty to do in Sharm el Sheikh. Though the main activities are water sports and diving, the terrific interior of the Sinai desert offers exciting activities such as renting quad bikes and motorbikes, or partaking in a guided excursion into the desert. Another exciting adventure is a ride out into the desert on camel or horseback or exploring the Sinai by jeep. For a touch of the bizarre, there is a limestone boulder two kilometers north of the edge of downtown that is shaped through erosion into the vague portrait of J. F. Kennedy.

For other fun activities try the Fun Town amusement park which features the Bowling Center and an ice skating rink. Or stop in one of the city’s exciting gambling casinos and try your hand with lady luck.

For an adventure of Biblical proportions, take a trip through the desert to Mt. Sinai. You can climb to the top of the mountain (3 hours) and see the place Christians, Jews and Muslims believe God gave Moses the original tablets containing the 10 Commandments. It is possible to join a tour group going here and even to camp on the mountain!

Also popular is the bohemian town of Dahab, further north on the Gulf of Aqaba. This delightful, former Bedouin fishing village, attracts a more laid back, backpacker crowd, but has a wonderful atmosphere and setting, as well as good diving.

Flights are available to and from Sharm el Sheik from many cities in Europe and the Middle East. There are also daily flights to and from Cairo.

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).
