Transport in Algeria
There is no shortage of taxis in Algeria, especially in major cities and areas with good road networks. Some taxis are metered, but most are not, so be sure to negotiate prices before hopping in.
Renting a car makes sense when traveling between cities and for day trips. It is best to get a 4WD vehicle when planning to traverse rough terrains. Bring all the necessary documentation if you plan to drive, but it is advised to hire a driver along with the car.
There are many international companies in the airports and towns offering rental car services including Hertz (+213-02-136-0817) and Europcar (+213-21-37-7222), along with local providers.
