Roadtrip Jordan 6 days self driving car

Hello travel friends,

I am currently planning my 6-day trip to Jordan, I will rent a rental car directly from the airport in Amman.

This is the first time I drive alone through Jordan.

Therefore, I need your advice and I am very grateful for improvements, the following route I have come up with:

I still have 1 day to plan and do not know where to use the best:

D1 Saturday | 04:00AM Airport Amman > 1,5h Route35 > 05:30AM Jerash

D1 Saturday | 08:00AM Jerash > 1,0h Route35 > 09:00am Amman City Mall > Taxi to Downtown

D1 Saturday | 03:00PM Amman > 1,5h > 04:30PM Dead Sea

D2 Sunday | 10:00AM Dead Sea > 4,5h KingsRoad > 02:30PM Petra

D3 Monday | 03:00PM Petra > 2.0h Desert Hwy. > 05:00PM Aqaba

D4 Tuesday | 02:00PM Aqaba > 1,0h Desert Hwy. > 03:00PM Wadi Rum

D5 Wednesday | 12:00AM Wadi Rum > 4,0h Desert Hwy. > 04:00PM Amman

Thanks for your support

I doubt you can rent a car so early as 04.00AM. Likewise I doubt you can be in Jerash at 05:30AM and even to other places by you supposed hours.

Forget the google time, it is never accurate, it is only approx time, but in fact, it will be different time.

Otherwise your itinerary is OK.

Your drive times look alright. They may be a little light but no more than 15-20 mins. I did all those six months ago except for Aqaba. Everything depends on how many stops you encounter at checkpoints, bathroom, gas and food breaks.

Plus watch out for the speed bumps. Check your rental for undercarriage damage before taking it.
