Top tips for renting a car in Saudi Arabia

  • In Saudi Arabia, children under the age of 12 must travel in an appropriate car seat or booster seat. No child under 10 years old is allowed to sit in the front seat, so if you plan to bring your children on vacation to the country, you should either bring a car seat with you or rent one from your car rental company for around SAR 20.88 (5.55 USD) per day.
  • If you plan to cross the border with your rental car in Saudi Arabia, you will need permission from your car rental company in the form of a "No Objection Certificate" (NOC). You will be permitted to cross the Oman and United Arab Emirates borders; however, the Jordan and Israeli borders are not allowed to be crossed from Saudi Arabia.
  • On your travels around Saudi Arabia, you will find that driving between cities, rather than within each, is much more enjoyable and is the fastest way to get around. This is one of the main reasons to rent a car instead of relying on public transportation. Take your rental car to visit the towns on the Red Sea coast, like Jeddah and Yanbu, which are 317 km (203 mi) apart from each other.
  • Since Saudi Arabia is mostly desert, primarily the Arabian Desert, it is best explored by a four-wheel drive, as standard cars will struggle in the sand. The popular pastime of "tet’ees" or sand-duning, requires off-road vehicles, which you can rent from your car rental company.
