Top tips for hiring a car at Riyadh King Khaled Intl airport

  • Riyadh is a beautiful destination and a significant cultural hub. If you wish to explore this city fully, consider renting a car. First, public transportation in this town is not well structured, and a rental car will give you the best experience when exploring this town. Moreover, you can venture further out beyond the pavement with a rental car, which the bus cannot facilitate.
  • One thing to know about renting a car at Riyadh King Khaled Intl Airport (RUH) is that kids need to be in a car seat at all times when in a rental vehicle. You can fly with your car seat or hire one from the car rental providers at the airport. Saudi Arabia has only recently lifted the ban on women drivers, but women cannot be in a car with a male companion who is not a relative, and this is strictly enforced.
  • Drivers with disabilities will easily get rental cars from Riyadh King Khaled Intl Airport. The car rental providers have taken steps to accommodate them, including registering an additional driver for blind passengers at no extra cost. For those with physical challenges, the vehicles can be adapted with panoramic mirrors, swivel seats, pedal extenders, spinner knobs, and hand controls, depending on your need.
  • You can travel outside the city with rental cars from this airport. You won't be restricted to traveling within Riyadh, and you can venture further out and explore some other attractions beyond city limits. However, you will not be permitted to cross international borders if you are visiting Saudi Arabia on a tourist or business visa. This service is only for locals and permanent residents of the kingdom.
  • Book your car hire at Riyadh King Khaled Intl airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

I found my reservation all set. The car was clean. The condition check of the car was detailed and well documented. The thing I did not like is the long wait to process the paperwork before receiving the car. Considering coming from a flight and it could have been a very long one and then having to wait that long to finish the paperwork at the office before you go to receive the car. I suggest working with the local office to benefit from the information provided at the online reservation to speed up the process.

They should update their system. It tool more than an hour to receive the car. The worst point, they did not checked out the previous car from system and i got 3 fines that pertains to the new client. I still have to justify police department that i m not the user of the car during that period and sixt does not help at all And they dont have any call center that you can reach out them for such queries or emergency

Pickup - the guy wasn’t there and didn’t show up for about an hour even though the shop was open. The neighboring rental car company said this is the norm with Avis. The car - the car had 120,000 km on it when we got it and was making a terrible sound. It also only had 1/4 tank of gas. And worse it had the tire pressure light from pick up! Drop off - we dropped the car off at a different location and when we got there they told us we needed to pay an additional $250 to drop it off at a different location from pickup. This was NEVER communicated to us…

This place is a nightmare. It took me 2.5 hours to get my car. First, Kayak lists the agency as in Terminal, which it is not. The agency is in the airport parking structure. It is difficult to get to the office in the parking structure as several of the elevators are closed but you won’t know this until you walk all the way to the end of the terminal, and then find the elevators closed and need to walk all the way back to access an elevator (some signage could fix this problem). Then in the parking structure you need to walk back to the end through a construction zone to reach the parking structure elevator to reach the 2nd level which is where the rental office is located. Upon reaching the office, I was informed the computers were down and we would go to terminal 5 to complete the paperwork/ rental process. After waiting some time it was determined they would give me the rental car to drive to terminal 5 to complete the rental process. To ensure I don’t steal the car they took my passport and had me follow a car with someone from the rental copany who would drive the other two people waiting to rent cars. I followed this person, who stopped in the main thoroughfare of the garage and completed a 3 point turn and signaled I should do the same. Then we drove out of the airport and entered again and went to terminal 5. At the rental office in terminal 5 I was made to wait in line as if I had just arrived, despite having been dealing with the rental office for an hour now. After waiting in line for 20 minutes it was my turn at the counter. It took more than an hour for the rental paperwork to be completed. They needed to text me a secure code as part of the rental process but could not explain why. The text never arrived and they told me I needed a Saudi phone number. The worker rudely suggested I go to the cell store on the same level of the terminal and purchase a phone or SIM card so I could have a local number. Eventually I resolved this problem by using a local friends number. After all this, they gave me keys to a new car, so the car I drove over was not the car I would be renting. Problem is my kids were out sleeping in the car we drove over, so I was forced to wake the kids and move the car seats to a different car. This place is a hot mess from start to finish and should be avoided.
