With a Mediterranean climate, Lebanon is a country that offers year-round sunshine...
While the Middle Eastern country of Lebanon is relatively small, there is certainly no shortage of attractions. Known for its souks and markets, Mediterranean beaches, vineyards and the Chouf Mountains, this historically important country is well worth a visit. To get around Lebanon, car hire will prove invaluable.
Lebanon is served by Beirut International Airport (BEY), which lies just three miles south of Beirut city centre. For flights from the UK the best option is Heathrow, where you will find inexpensive flights offered by Cyprus Airways, Turkish Airlines or Czech Airlines.
Lebanon is known for its Mediterranean climate, which means that holidaymakers can visit at any time of year. However, between June and August the country sees very little rainfall and this is when many people choose to go there. Temperatures range from 20C-30C during this period.
However, travelling around the country is not easy without your own vehicle, so hiring a car is undoubtedly the best option. Use TravelSupermarket to find the best deal on cheap car hire in Lebanon. Usually, the best option is to pre-book so you can collect your vehicle from Beirut's Rafic Hariri International Airport. From Beirut, car rental will allow you to explore further afield.
Before travelling to Lebanon, it is wise to check with the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office for current travel advice.
