Before you buckle up and tear off on your next extraordinary adventure, let us give you a few details about Al Bahah. This part of Saudi Arabia is home to roughly 88,400 people. If you'd like to discover what wonderful things there are to do here, you could always have a chat to some of the locals.
Avoid paying a fortune for a rental car by following our recommendations:
That said, Al Bahah is famous for its mountains, rolling hills, and coastal plains. Many intrepid adventurers leave the city limits to explore those picturesque vistas. If that sounds like something you want to do, go for an SUV or a full-size vehicle. Even if you don't intend to venture off-road, you'll welcome all that extra space.
Sometimes it's all about the journey, which makes your car choice particularly important. If you're about to head off on an epic road trip around Al Bahah, a robust and stylish SUV could be the best solution. If you'd like a fantastic bargain and plan on staying mostly in the city, an economy car is a wise pick. All you need to do is choose what'll suit you best, load up the car, and rack up those miles.
Climb behind the wheel and get ready to uncover the best of Al Bahah from the comfort of your own rental car. If you've never driven here before, you don't need to worry. We've pulled together a few handy tips to help you navigate your way around safely and smoothly:
You'll be motoring along the right-hand side of the road in Al Bahah. Even though the rules may be similar to home, we recommend driving a little more cautiously on roads you're not familiar with.
Generally, speed limits in Al Bahah range from 40 km/h to 130 km/h. in residential areas, you're usually not permitted to travel over 40 km/h.
Most of the time, your chosen car rental company will charge the amount stated on the fine to your credit card, including local surcharges. Alternatively, they may forward your contact details to local law enforcement agencies, who'll then send a fine straight to you.
Subject to some exceptions, seat belts must be fastened in Saudi Arabia.
Not only is it illegal to use your cell phone while driving in Al Bahah, but you could even be hit with a fine for using hands-free functions like Bluetooth.
Al Bahah has strict rules and regulations around drink driving, with the legal limit set at 0.0% BAC (blood alcohol content). Book a taxi or consider a ride-sharing service if you fancy having a cocktail (or three!) when you're out.
Turning on a red light isn't allowed in Al Bahah. Always be watching for traffic signs and lights so you don't breach any traffic laws.
