Car Rental, Driving around the city of Doha
Driving around Doha, Qatar's biggest city, can be hazardous and extremely challenging at times. Locals are somewhat aggressive when it comes to driving in Qatar and will regularly pull out in front of you, cut you up and change lanes without indicating. Roundabouts can be particularly interesting and tend to end up being a free for all.
However, if you are prepared for all of this, you really won't find driving in Doha any different than any other big city and a car really becomes useful when driving outside. Be aware that most signposts do not usually display distances, making a map an essential piece of equipment.
