Transportation from Amman Airport

Krystof Hajek updated 21. 3. 2024

The airport is accessible by a special bus service to the centre of Amman. You can also take advantage of many car rental services.

Car rental

Jordan is an ideal country for road-trips. Public transport is not very extensive, but the network of roads will take you to all the places of tourist value.

The arrivals terminal houses a large number of car rental companies, including multinational brands. Even with competition, prices are relatively low and weekly rentals start at around 160 eur.

Bus to Amman

Public transport is catered for by the Sariyah Express bus service. It stops in Amman at Tabarbour North Bus Station and you can get off or on at 5 other stops during your journey, see map below.
