Getting Around Sharm Al Sheikh

Public Transportation

You’ll see blue and white minibuses taking locals to destinations all over the city but it’s against the law for them to carry tourists. If you’re traveling with a group you may want to rent your own private minibus. Prices start from E£1900 per day.

By Taxi

Taxis are a convenient way of getting around the city, if somewhat expensive. Many drivers won’t use a meter so be sure to agree on a price before boarding. A typical 5-mile trip is E£180-300. 

By Car

Sharm El Sheik stretches from the Old Town to Shark’s Bay and beyond. Rent a car from leading providers like Hertz and Sixt for E£800 per day and see the city at your own pace.
