There's nothing like dropping the windows of your rental car and cruising down lengthy stretches of highways. But before you take off on a big adventure in Tabuk, how about discovering a bit about this tourist hot spot? Familiarize yourself with Saudi Arabia, because that's where you'll need to head to get your adventure underway.
Avoid spending a fortune on a rental car by following our top tips and tricks:
That all said, Tabuk boasts some incredible mountains, rolling hills, and coastal plains. Many eager adventurers leave the city to check out those breathtaking scenes. If you want to do this, opt for an SUV or a full-size vehicle. Even if you don't have plans to wander off the beaten track, you'll appreciate all that extra space.
For some people, owning a luxury vehicle is a little (or a lot!) out of reach. But renting the car of your dreams can easily be a reality! Picture yourself cruising the open roads in a swish sports car, even if it's only for a little while. Or perhaps all you're after is a budget ride to get you quickly from point A to point B. Flashy or thrifty? Either way, one thing's for sure — there's a rental car to suit your style in Tabuk.
There's no better way to discover Tabuk than from the comfort of your own rental car. But before you start the engine and speed off, it's worth researching some of the road rules and regulations. Here are a few tips to help make sure your trip goes smoothly:
You'll be motoring along the right side of the road in Tabuk. Even though you may be comfortable with the traffic rules, it's always smart to drive with a little extra care in a new destination.
In Tabuk, the maximum speed limit outside a built-up area is 130 km/h. (The minimum is 40 km/h.) When approaching residential zones, bear in mind that unless stated otherwise, the speed limit is 40 km/h.
Normally, one of two things will happen. Your rental company may bill the amount stated on the fine to your credit card. This is the usual practice. Otherwise, it may supply your contact information to local law enforcement agencies so the fine is issued directly to you.
By law everyone must wear a seat belt. However, there are a couple of exceptions for vehicles used by public transportation networks.
Yes, it is against the law to use your cell phone while cruising in your car around Tabuk. This extends to having your phone in your hand, as well as the use of Bluetooth functions.
Tabuk has strict laws around drinking and driving, with the legal limit set at 0.0% BAC (blood alcohol content). Grab a taxi or use a ride-sharing service if you plan on having a drink or two when you're out.
It's a big no-no to turn on a red light in Tabuk. When you come across one, enjoy a mindful moment until the light goes back to green.
