Renting a Car or Taxi

Renting a Car or Taxi

We (4 people) plan to be in Jordan from May 8 to May 13 and plan to tour Amman (1 day), drive to Wadi Rum (1 day) next morning at about 9am, to Petra the next day at about noon (2 days in Petra), drive to Dead Sea Jordan (1 day) and finally to Jerusalem via King Hussein Allenby Bridge.

What will be the cost if we take taxi everywhere?

What is the best route if we decide to rent a car and drive from Amman to Wadi Rum and then to Petra,...?

Amman to Wadi rum along desert hwy 4 hours

you can hire a car and self drive most economical way to travel

with 4 people

cos if you to hire a driver you need to take a mini van which is more costly than a sedan car 50% more

you can visit all sites mentioned in your post

I also had this dilemma and after researching, help from TA mbrs (thank you all!) and the freedom to explore/peace of mind....I went with renting a car with Monte Carlo.

I exchanged a few emails with Monte Carlo and it was very very easy as they respond quite fast.

You'll have 4 people, so splitting the cost will be cheap and I recommend it as well.

I understand that you want to warn others about the scams at petrol stations in Jordan but please do not reply to post that are months or even years old, it's messes up the whole forum with the result that people only see the old posts on the first page and that new ones could go unnoticed. Thanks !
