Car hire FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about car hires in Riyadh, including policies, requirements, and more. FAQs were last updated on 18 February 2024.

What are the requirements to hire a car in Riyadh?

Car hires in Riyadh give you the freedom to explore Saudi Arabia at your own pace, but several criteria have to be met to hire a car. Drivers have to usually be at least 21 years old to arrange Riyadh car hires, and an additional fee could apply to those under 25 years of age with certain car hire agencies. The main driver as well as any other additional drivers must hold a valid driving licence, and driving licences printed with non-Roman alphabet (Hangul, Greek, Hebrew etc.) must be complemented by an International Driving Permit. In addition to this, a credit card from a major company has to be presented by the main driver upon collection of their Riyadh car hire. A debit card may not be accepted by your car hire agency, so make sure to check.

What are the rules for driving in Riyadh?

When you get your car hire in Riyadh, there are several rules to keep in mind, as driving in Saudi Arabia is very different from the UK. One of the most obvious differences is that you will drive hired cars in Riyadh on the right side of the road, and therefore pass from the left. Playing music is forbidden during prayer. The signs for speed limits are often written only in Arabic, so knowledge of Eastern Arabic numerals will be useful. Speed limits can vary from 50 km/h or 31 mph in the city and built-up areas, 70 km/h or 43.5 mph in rural areas, to up to 120 km/h or 74.5 mph on the national highways. There is a strict, zero-tolerance policy on any alcohol and drugs. Check with the driving authority for recent law changes before driving off in your hired car in Riyadh.

What type of car is suggested for driving in Riyadh?

Car hires in Riyadh are the best way to travel around the sprawling capital’s miles of immaculate roads. Cheap car hire in Riyadh is available, with multiple car hire locations in Riyadh offering luxury as well as economy car hire. With long, high-speed roads between cities, a fast luxury or sports car will get you from A to B with speed and comfort. Alternatively, a four-wheel-drive sports utility vehicle or pickup truck is an exciting option that will let you drive over the rocks and sand of Saudi Arabia’s deserts--one the favourite pastimes of locals. An electric car hire can save you money on fuel if you plan to travel large distances.
