Lebanon Driving Advice and Car Hire Info

Driving In Lebanon
Roads are usually in pretty good condition and driving style tends to be quicker than in Europe, with little lane discipline. Driving abroad in Beirut can be a challenge (though I found it quite good fun!) in that there are multi lane highways with no marked lanes and cars weaving in and out at high speed. If travelling from Byblos and aiming for the airport, be aware that it isn’t well signed and you will probably end up getting lost in Beirut centre. You should avoid driving to Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon, which present volatile environments where the Lebanese state has limited capacity to impose law and order. Also avoid travel south of the Litani River.
