Over the past few weeks, we have had a number of people request transportation service. Their main question has been: What types of transportation are available in Libya? From on the ground in Tripoli, we have noticed a huge void in transportation options…but there are a few:
Private Car with Driver
As we have began to explore, we have found a few people that offer the services of car and driver. These are not necessarily companies providing these services, but individuals filling a need. Most of the drivers do not speak much English, however, it is possible to find someone with some English. Pricing for these services really depends on the vehicle that you require but some sample pricing would be:
There are rental car companies that will offer you cars which you can drive. The contract is made in your name and you are liable for the car. Gas is very cheap but driving is crazy! Pricing for these cars depends on the style of car and company…
For those looking for an adventure, you can easily jump the Black & White Taxis or the big white Taxi Vans – they are fairly cheap but offer a unique experience. We might label it adventure tourism! The taxis are not metered, so make sure you agree on the price before you start.
