Renting a car can be an affordable option in Qatar, because Qatar is a small country and it is easy to visit the country with a car, and you will be able to see many spots in a short time. On the other hand, gas is so cheap in Qatar and makes it more economical and comfortable than using public transport. It is worth noting that Doha has a suitable bus service but visiting the rest of the country is much simpler by car. Although there is some parking all around Qatar, and many of the malls have free parking, Doha lacks parking spaces.
Qatar has many desert areas, so adventuring by car is enjoyable. If you rent a four-wheel drive or SUV can enjoy driving in sands and dune bashing. But for busy streets consider a small car to drive around the city.
