"Travel by Car" Top 5 Page for this destination Riyadh Transportation Tip by Cielo_Algaeed

Riyadh Transportation: 38 reviews and 19 photos

Almost all the people/family here in Riyadh has a car of their own. From a Toyota to Lexus, from Hyundai to BMW. For most of the people here, having a car is not a luxury but a necessity. Its easier to move around esp if you're travelling with women or children. Its very rare that i see people who travel by Limo's or the so called Taxi's.

Fuel is amazingly cheap - 60 halala per liter.More or less Ten cents per liter.

Expats who work here esp male / family are usually provided by theior employer a car/van of their own.

Mode: AROUND
Type: Car/Motor Home

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
