Why Hire a Car in Iran?

Iran is a relatively large country, with attractions of all types scattered in all corners of the land. North, South, East, and West all hold treasures and attractions unique to themselves, missing on which can be a huge waste even if you are not traveling to Iran as a tourist. That’s why covering more than a couple sites of your choice in a day is not always possible, especially if they are in different cities. This makes Iran rental cars a convenient way to get around the country and visit all you wish to see from Iran cities and nature.

Self-drive Rental Cars

After renting a car of your choice, you can simply drive around the country and hit all the destinations on your list, or get some ideas from our top Iran cities list. Keep in mind that by renting a car and driving it on your own, the listed services are all on you.

Driving in Iran roads can be unlike what most travelers have experienced in the past. To begin with, unlike most other countries, you should drive on the RIGHT SIDE of the road in Iran. This necessitates the steering wheel to be situated on the left side of the car. To learn more about Iran road rules, read here.

Chauffeur-driven Rental Cars

  3. Priced with the driver’s separate payment in mind (which you will learn about soon)

drivers are well familiar with Iran road regulations and traffic system, making them highly reliable to ride travelers through different routes. You can also ask for a driver who speaks English if you wish.

Our Economy class cars are perfect for those who are going for more in-town driving than rough roads and adventure driving. These cars are perfect for couples, families, or solo travelers on a budget. They can easily accommodate several small bags or medium suitcases, and although they are designed to hold 5 adults we recommend you rent a car of this class only if you are traveling as a group of 4 or less people to be most comfortable. Economic car rentals are among our most affordable and popular choices with travelers on a holiday. PEUGEOT SAMAND LX and PEUGEOT PARS are two of these car models you can find on our Iran rental car list.

Our VAN vehicles are perfect for those who are looking for a budget and environment-friendly car for large groups or families (up to 13 travelers). Vans are roomy and spacious cars well-suited for long or short road trips. They can easily accommodate at least 4 small or large luggage or packages in them.

Note: if you want to book one of our large road transportation vehicles like buses, minibuses, and vans; you should make your reservation at least a month in advance. You will also need to give us the detailed itinerary of your trip in Iran.

Iran Rental Car Prices

Depending on the listed factors, your Iran rental car prices may vary.

  • The duration of your stay
  • The type of car you rent
  • Who drives your car

The more you want to stay in Iran, the less you will have to pay. Also, keep in mind that all Iran rental car prices are listed per day and not per passenger. Let’s take a look at the PEUGEOT PARS price table to understand how pricing Iran rental cars works:









chauffeur driven car + 40 €

(Driver’s food & accommodation )







Tourism Guide Driven Car + 40 €

(Driver’s food & accommodation )







 As you see, Iran rental car prices are lowered per day the more time you spend in the country. If you hire a chauffeur for the car of your choice, an additional fee of 40€ is added to your Iran rental car cost. That sum will be your driver’s food and accommodation as they will be traveling with you through different cities of Iran (but not staying with you).

Cars driven by a tour guide naturally cost more per day, as you will be getting the valuable experience of traveling with a skilled tour guide on your side. Even if you are not planning on booking an Iran tour package, you can taste an amazingly guided trip to the highlights of Iran cultural sites, Iran deserts and forests, and Iran adventure spots. We guarantee that your guide-driven ride throughout Iran will be well worth the additional fee.

Sightseeing with an Iran rental car

Depending on the car model you want to rent in Iran, the price you will have to pay per day also differs. Our Economic Iran rental car prices range from 20 to 60 per day (depending on your driver) and our luxurious, premium car rental prices vary from 55 to 160 per day WITHOUT taking the driver fee into account.

Insurance and Safety of our Iran rental cars

We are aware of how important car rental insurance is. You can rest assured, as all our vehicles are covered with the most complete and highest level of CDW insurance. On top of that, all members of our drivers’ team are professionals and, with years of experience in driving Iran’s roads, they know the safest, fastest, and the most aesthetically pleasing routes for each destination. They are also well familiar with Iran road regulations and traffic system, making them highly reliable. Our guide drivers can also give you a full tour of the history and national importance of each stop, AND show you the best places in each season on the road, only if you wish them to do so.

Rental Car Pick-ups and Drop-offs

One of the most important points to consider when renting a car in Iran is accessibility. Picking up your vehicle or dropping it off at the airport, is among the most convenient options. As our goal is to provide the best Iran rental car services to our customers, you may pick-up and drop-off your car in any of the domestic AND international airports listed below. These spots are the most popular parking destinations according to our customers’ previous rental records.
