Karachi Guide

Guide

Karachi is a coastal city, with a large sea port and business center, located in the Sindh province of south Pakistan. The Karachi-Peshawar, or Indus, highway offers access to Lahore. A highway from Karachi connects with the ancient port of Ormara in just under five hours and offers stunning coastal views throughout the journey. On the other end of Pakistan is Islamabad which is a very long 17 hour drive north or you can fly from Jinnah International Airport to Benazir Bhutto International Airport saving hours travel.

Jinnah International Airport is the closest airport to Karachi city center, only a 30 minute drive north. The airport has both international and domestic lounges offering food and drink in the restaurants. There is a shopping arcade offering traditional Pakistani rugs and memorabilia. There is also a bank, ATM and baggage holders. Taxi cabs are available outside the main terminal building.

While public transportation and taxis are available in the city of Karachi, in Pakistan, they can often be frustrating to those wanting to explore the area. Taxis are often expensive and hard-to-find while public transport is crowded and restricting.  Many visitors to the city prefer to opt for car hire as it allows them to travel safely and independently. If you arrive at Karchi's Airport then arrange to collect and drop off your hire car from there.

Driving your car hire vehicle in Karachi can be challenging, to say the least. Before setting out, invest in a decent map, a reliable guidebook and perfect your de-stressing rituals. While the road network is seemingly straight forward, your fellow drivers' driving styles will be anything but.  Safety is paramount when traveling in Pakistan. Keep your car doors locked while driving and stick to tried and tested routes.

There are many wonderful attractions to see like the Mahata Palace, Thatta, Frere Hall, the art gallery, Empress Market, Hilal Park and Cliffton Beach.

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).
