KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Mecca

  • Opting for car hire in Mecca offers several advantages when exploring this historic and religious city. A car provides greater flexibility and convenience, allowing you to visit attractions like the Holy Kaaba and the Abraj Al-Bait Clock Tower at your own pace. Hiring a car also provides access to nearby destinations, such as the spiritual site of Mount Arafat and the mountainous region of Taif. With Mecca car hire, you can plan your itinerary efficiently and navigate the city and its surroundings with ease.
  • When it comes to car hire in Mecca, King Abdulaziz International Airport (JED) is the primary airport serving the city. Car hire offices can be found in the Arrivals area of Terminal 1 and Terminal 2, offering convenient access for travellers. Although there is no dedicated airport shuttle service to the car hire offices, they are within walking distance from the terminals. Upon arrival, remember to have your valid driving licence, passport, and a credit card ready for the car hire process.
  • When driving in Mecca, be aware of the specific traffic regulations and cultural practices. Mecca is a city with high religious significance, so it is crucial to respect local customs and adhere to the rules of the road. Pay attention to road signs and follow the instructions from local authorities. Maintain a safe distance from other vehicles and be cautious of sudden lane changes. Be aware of pedestrians, particularly around crowded areas and near mosques, as they may step onto the road without warning.
  • Mecca experiences heavy traffic during peak times. Rush hour in the city typically occurs during the evening prayer time, known as Maghrib prayer, which usually takes place between 17:30 and 19:30. During this time, roads around the holy sites, such as the area surrounding the Grand Mosque, can be heavily congested. Additionally, during the Hajj pilgrimage season, which occurs in the Islamic month of Dhul Hijjah, traffic volumes significantly increase, so it's advisable to exercise caution and allow extra time for travel during this period.
  • Book your car hire in Mecca at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Always adhere to the designated speed limits and exercise caution while driving in Mecca.

The cost of parking can range from 5 SAR to 20 SAR per hour (1.01 GBP to 4.02 GBP), depending on the location and duration.
