Petrol stations near Islamabad Airport

If you select a 'full to full' car rental agreement you will need to hand your car back with a full tank.

There's a petrol station on the Airport Road. You'll spot it on the right hand side before you turn left to access the airport building.

Driving around Islamabad Airport

Benazir Bhutto International Airport is just off the Islamabad Expressway dual carriageway. We recommend choosing a car hire package that includes a sat-nav system to help you navigate around the country's roads. Traffic in Pakistan drives on the left side of the road, just like in Britain. Locals do have a reputation for chaotic driving, so keep your wits about you.

Getting to your destination

Hiring a car at Islamabad Airport gives you the freedom to explore the region. We've put together some quick tips on driving to the most popular destinations.


With its leafy parks and neat grid system, Pakistan's capital is often considered to be one of the most organised cities in South Asia. Excellent shopping, a varied dining scene, and a wealth of architectural attractions make it a popular destination for tourists and business travellers alike.

It takes just over 25 minutes to drive into central Islamabad from the airport. Although the city is laid out on a logical grid system, local drivers don't always drive in a logical manner. Stay defensive. Lots of hotels in Islamabad have car parking. If you're comparing hotels with Skyscanner you can select this as a must-have amenity. There are also plenty of car parks dotted throughout the city.


Cool mountain air, nice walking trails, and romantically faded colonial architecture make this hill station a popular spot for weekend tourists.

It takes about an hour and forty minutes to drive to Murree from Islamabad Airport. The road to Murree winds through beautiful pine forested hills. The views are wonderful, but watch out if you often get car sick. It can be tricky to find car parking in the town during high season, but there are some good car parks on the outskirts. It's worth choosing accommodation with parking, as this will take some of the stress out of your trip.


Islamabad's twin city is the polar opposite of the organised and shiny capital. Rawalpindi has a more authentically South Asian atmosphere, with chaotic streets and a colourful bazaar.

It only takes about 20 minutes to drive into the city centre from Islamabad Airport. Driving around can be quite stressful in comparison to Islamabad, as the streets are narrower and can be quite chaotic. There are plenty of car parks in the city, and lots of hotels on the outskirts have somewhere for guests to park.
