TAP Perisa Rental services offers you the freedom to explore Iran as you wish. No more being forced to stick to a tour schedule, no need to see attraction which do not interest you. Due to a decade of great advancements by Iran’s Traffic Police (NAJA), Iranian roads are now safe and open for all foreign visitors. Thanks to accurate and up-to-date maps, a nationally maintained system of English signs & signals, and of course, our on-call 24-Hour English roadside assistance program, Iran has never been easier to explore. All our cars are fully-insured and ready to hit the road.
If you are travelling in a group of 2-4 people, it is much more econiconimal to split the fare of a rental car than to pay for numerous bus, plane, train, taxi, or boat fares & fees.
Having your own vehicle allows you the opportunity to explore Iran as you desire, making stops whenever you see anything interesting along your journey. You have the chance to truly dive into local cultures and untapped landscapes.
Iranians have, for the most part, made great leaps and bounds in improving their driving etiquette. Although Iran has had a terrible reputation for aggressive driving and liberal use of car horns in the past, all metropolitan areas have become much more peaceful and law-abiding.
Thanks to extensive use of traffic cameras, well-maintained roads and strict law-enforcement, Iran has become one of the safest and driver-friendliest countries in the middle east.
Almost all major road signs and signals, especially those regarding major destinations, throughways, & cities all have English translations on the signs. Since English is the second most common language in Iran, you will easily be able to find your way no matter where you go.
If you have been driving outside of Iran, chances are are used to obeying the rules, so the chances of you getting pulled over are actually quite small. Unlike the aggressive image of Iran that is portrayed in international media, the local police are actually quite friendly and accommodating. If you happen to be pulled over by the police, all you have to do is have your documents (driver’s license, passport, rental lease agreement, vehicle specifications) ready to hand over to the officer. Let the officer know you will make a phone call and make a call to our 24 Hour Roadside Assistance. We will speak to the officer and have you on your way soon.
An International Driving Permit is NOT required if you are staying in Iran under 6 months.
