Hertz in Al Degheijer Building

Hire your car right next to the airport from our Al Degheijer Building branch in Riyadh. Whether you’re in the Saudi capital for business or sightseeing, travelling around in air-conditioned comfort will ensure you have a pleasurable trip.

The capital and business centre of Saudi Arabia, Riyadh is a fascinating city to visit and drive in. From the historic district with the Masmak Fort and the surrounding architecture to the parks, skyscrapers and museums, there’s plenty of places to explore in Riyadh. Centrally located on the outskirts of Riyadh’s airport, when you rent a car in Al Degheijer Building, Riyadh, from our Hertz branch here, you can begin your trip immediately.

Rules and Regulations for Driving in Riyadh

To rent a car with us in Riyadh you must be at least 23 years old and have held your licence for a year or more. As well as your national driving licence, you’ll need an International Driving Permit unless you’re a Saudi national.

Roads in Saudi Arabia and Riyadh tend to be well maintained with reasonably good signage. Many signs are in both Arabic and English and Riyadh has a grid road system, making navigation easier.

Speed limits should always be obeyed in Riyadh and there is an increasing number of speed cameras. Locals are known to speed, but you shouldn’t be tempted to join them. The typical motorway speed limit is 75mph (120kph) and on urban roads, 28mph (45kph). You can register your phone with SAHER, the government’s road traffic management system to receive text alerts if you’ve been caught speeding or any other traffic violation. This is particularly useful as you cannot leave the country with outstanding fines.

The laws are changing regarding who is allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia so it’s best to check the rules and regulations before you go. However, we offer a Hertz chauffeur service for anyone who doesn’t want to drive, or is unable to. Many visitors like to hire a chauffeur, who will know the roads well, so they can make their way around Riyadh in comfort.

Everyone must wear in a seat belt while driving in Saudi Arabia and the use of mobile phones while driving is banned unless using a hands-free kit. Driving under the influence of alcohol is also forbidden and carries hefty punishment so it’s essential to avoid drinking before driving.

Driving in and around Riyadh

Where to Go With Your Rental Car in Riyadh

Saudi Arabia’s capital is near the centre of this large country and surrounded by desert. With an intriguing history, there’s plenty of museums and Saudi architecture to see including the 9th century town of Ad Diriyah on the north-west outskirts of Riyadh. It’s easy to drive from the centre of Riyadh to this ancient town and see the ruins of the Saudi royal family’s former home.

For a more in depth look at this culture, you can visit the National Museum of Saudi Arabia or go to the business district (Olaya) to see the Al Faisaliyah Centre, Saudi Arabia’s fourth tallest skyscraper. Explore this area further for shopping, restaurants, and entertainment.

For adventures outside Riyadh, drive north to Thumamah National Park where locals head when they need time out from the city. Take a ride on a camel, try an exhilarating quad bike tour, or simply take a picnic and enjoy the desert views.
