Islamabad Guide

Many visitors to Pakistan opt for a car hire service during their stay in Islamabad City as it allows for safe, independent travel. Car hire can be found in the city from: House No. 11.

Before setting out in your car hire vehicle, it is worth investing in a guide book, a good map and perhaps some relaxation exercises. While the cities roads are well-laid out on a grid system with a good quality of paving, it is home to some of the most chaotic driving imaginable.

While all looks orderly on a map, it is anything but! While Islamabad City is slightly easier to drive a car hire in than other southern Asian cities like Karachi, it can be incredibly stressful for Western drivers.

When driving through the city, it might help to remember the tale of the tortoise and the hare. While in this case, slow and steady might not win the race, it will definitely help you reach your destination with both your sanity and your vehicle intact.

Your driving skills will need to be sharp to maneuver through the city, so always be on your guard. Ensure that nothing can distract while you veer through a complex obstacle course of doors opening, drivers making turns from middle lanes and road hazards, such as piles of rocks in the road.

While many drivers neglect lane markings or even using signals, it is worth noting that traffic lights must be obeyed. Police in the area ticket drivers who fail to stop, however running a red is quite popular with drivers in Islamabad City.

Driving in your car hire in the evenings can be especially challenging in Islamabad City. More often than not, your path will be crossed by cars and motorcycles without headlamps and bikes without reflective lights.

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?
