Curious about transportation should we rent a car? Land in Amman hit the Dead Sea, Wadi Rum, Petra, and the coast and spend a week or so. Any suggestions on how we get around since we have two children both about 6. Thank you!
I definitely wouldn't recommend getting a car to drive around Amman! Everyone drives very crazily, ignoring lanes and stop signs. While you're in the city I'd just take cabs, they are very reasonably priced and how I get around when I'm in Jordan. It wouldn't be a bad idea to rent a car to get to all the other places you mentioned! The highways are fine to drive on.
