Hertz in Jeddah

Hertz car rental in Jeddah is quick and easy, and as Jeddah has so many great attractions getting around by rental car makes perfect sense. To rent a car in Jeddah simply drop in to one of the many Hertz rental branches in the city and away you go.

Jeddah is a great city to drive in. The roads tend to be long and without intersections, and many have between two and four lanes. This saves a lot of time getting between locations, and it’s easy to find your way around to the city’s host of attractions. These include the museums and galleries in the old Beit Al Balad British colonial complex, and Fakieh Aquarium, both of which have ample space for parking.

Driving and Parking in Jeddah

You will need a full driving license and must be over 21 to rent a car in Jeddah. You will also need an International Driving Permit (IDP). For more information about driving regulations in Jeddah, take a look at our page about renting a car in Saudi Arabia.

If you rent a car in Jeddah be aware that the overnight street parking options are limited, but there are plenty of options for parking throughout the day. Metering was recently introduced, however, so it’s not a free for all anymore, and there’s always the risk of getting a ticket. Just check the signs, and if you do end up with a ticket you can send payment to the Jeddah Department of Transportation. Jeddah has no options for parking electric cars.

An auto-parking project was started in Jeddah recently, by the Jeddah Municipality in partnership with private companies, and this should significantly ease the burden on current street parking. The initial target is 5000 parking spots in downtown Jeddah and over 40 streets have so far been covered. There are new signs and guidelines in these central areas so be sure to keep your eyes open for them.

Driving in and around Jeddah

Key routes

The roads are unusually long and there’s a noticeable absence of junctions. An uninterrupted drive across the city will take you past numerous interesting attractions.

The Jeddah Regional Museum of Archaeology and Ethnography is housed in an old royal palace and has its own free parking slots.
You can find off-street parking in parts of the Old Town or drive along to Sail Island on its artificial peninsula to enjoy scuba diving.

Major Highways

Jeddah is particularly well known amongst the driving community for its ring roads, on which are built some of the city’s most impressive monuments and works of modern art. These make any drive in the city interesting, and the prospect of seeing a giant bicycle rise up before you on the Bike ring road is a sight you’ll remember.

There are many major routes connecting Jeddah to the surrounding area and neighbouring countries. If you haven’t driven in Jeddah before, just bear a few points in mind:

• Many of the thoroughfares do not have road or street signs, although the intersections are usually clearly labelled.
• Women are not allowed to drive anywhere in Saudi Arabia. Although this technically applies only to Saudi licences, it’s best not to take the chance. Try to get a male colleague to take you to where you want to get to wherever possible.
• Getting around involves asking directions frequently or locating familiar landmarks. Google maps are not completely up to date here, and many residents don’t know their own address.
• To get to a destination may involve making several U-turns because of the nature of the roads, and this is quite normal.

** When the booking is cancelled within seven days of being made.
