"Rental Car to Oman" United Arab Emirates Transportation Tip by george5b

United Arab Emirates Transportation: 45 reviews and 49 photos

It is possible to drive over from the UAE by rental car. However you need to purchase a separate insurance policy. Not all rental agencies do this and prices vary greatly, so it pays to shop around.
Note also that while you will not be checked at the Omani enclaves and some roads near Hatta, your normal insurance is still not valid on Omani territory - so you're in for trouble if you have an accident.
Other than that, crossing the border is very simple and straight forward, the driving time Dubai-Muscat is about 6-8 hours. Roads are very good on both sides of the border.
