car rental experience in iran
I’ve traveled to Iran in 24 June and I would like to share my experience about the self-driven car rental in Iran. Before I go to Iran and start my trip, I searched a lot abut a trustworthy car rental company Iran, First I found Europcar that is and international company o I trust it but their prices were really high. Protected content for an economy car per day! then I found Saadat rent from google and their reviews on google and trip advisor was so good and I can claim that Almost all of their costumers where satisfied by their car rental.
So, I went to their website and I was shocked by their prices! They have many economy cars with really suitable prices. I was gong to travel in Iran for 9 days and need a good and safe car. They also had an online reservation service and it was easy to work with.
Since credit cards are not used in Iran, the reservation was free and I should pay when I get my car. So, I searched between their cars and I decided to reserve a Renault L90.
I should mention that all of their cars were cheapy and you can rent a really good car with between 25 – 30 EUROS per day with full insurance coverage and unlimited free mileage and yeah you don’t need to pay more for fully insurance.
For reservation, they had many options, I could get my car from their office, IKA or even in my hotel. Besides that they bring the car in your location in other cities of Iran like Isfahan, Shiraz, Yazd, Tabriz, Bandar Abbas and Mashhad and it was a goof opportunity for me because I was planning to return my car in Yazd and back to Tehran by airplane and I wasn’t sure if any car rental company has this option for me but Saadat rent make this really easy for me.
They also have some extra facilities with really cheap prices like wireless Internet modem with 10GB free internet that I get it only 6 EUROS!
I only should send my information and a picture of my plane ticket to complete mt reservation. Oh, and the deposit was only 200€!
I got the invoice for my reservation as soon as I’ve done my reservation and only three hours after that they send the conformation of my rental car via WhatsApp.
What I really appreciate about Saadat rent staff is that they are fluently speak English and answer your questions any time of the day. For example, because it was my first trip to Iran, I had many questions about Iranian people and especially Do and Don’t in this country and they answer all of my questions so good even out of their officially work hour.
When I arrived to Iran, one of the staff was waiting for me at the IKA airport with a board that my name was written on it. He invites me for a coffee in the airport café. In there we did all the office work so easily like giving the deposit and the cost of renting the car and immediately I received my conformation. I also received a book for free that was actually an Iran travel guide and writes many thinks everybody needs to know in their first travel to Iran. This book has many useful travel tips, food, routes and roads, cities dictionaries and was really helpful.
He was really friendly and led me to my rental car. It was new and clean and in a very good condition. He also gave me many good tips about driving in Iran and exchanging my money.
If I want to talk about my trip It was really unforgettable. I visited Tehran, Kashan, Isfahan, Shiraz
