Created in the 1930s, Saudi Arabia is nowadays the largest country in the Middle East and the world's largest oil exporter. With a car hire in Saudi Arabia, you're free to explore this vast country, considered by many to be the cradle of Islam.
Saudi Arabia is not the obvious choice for most people when planning their holidays: the country is incredibly hot in the summer, selling alcohol is not allowed and the two most famous cities in Saudi Arabia are barred to non-Muslims. However, this is also a country rich in history and heritage, a once impregnable world that's slowly opening its doors to outsiders.
Drive your car hire to Mecca, the holiest city in Islam and a pilgrimage site for Muslims from all over the world. The city is home to the largest mosque in the world, the Masjid al-Haram, which together with the Masjid Al-Nabawi in Medina comprise the two most important Muslim sites on Earth.
With your car hire in Saudi Arabia, you won't lack for choices of what to do and where to go! If you're not Muslim and are unable to visit Mecca or Medina, there's still plenty to be seen, from the impressive Mada'in Saleh archaelogical site to the charming and curious oasis Najran.
And why not drive your car hire to Jeddah, one of the most liberal cities in the country and a gateway to both Mecca and Medina. The city is decorated by several modern open-air sculptures by many international artists and also boasts the highest fountain in the world!
