Mecca Guide

Makkah is the holiest religious site for the Islamic faith. The city was proclaimed the holy site of Islam by the prophet Muhammad in the 7th century. By then, Makkah functioned mostly as an important trade city in the middle east. The city boasts a population of 1.7 million and sits inland from the city of Jeddah.

Makkah is serviced by the international airport at Jeddah which has specialized facilities to handle the thousands of pilgrims which use the airport each year. The Haji terminal, specially designed for the pilgrims, houses a mosque for prayers, and lounges for both arrivals and departures. Car rental in Makkah can also be secured at this airport for the drive into the city.

Cheap car hire in Makkah is a necessity, as available public transport is limited. Some private taxis are available for hire, but most people, both visitors and locals, find it difficult to get around without personal transportation.

Car hire in Makkah can be found at the airport in Jeddah, or at one of the city's many travel agencies. Most importantly, most vehicles hired in the city can be returned to Jeddah Airport, which is a convenient way to secure reliable transportation to the airport about 35kms away.

Car hire will also come in handy when accessing the religious and historical sites of interest in the city as some are located in the surrounding area as opposed to the downtown region. Accommodation is readily available, but can become hard to secure during the height of the pilgrimage season so booking well in advance is advisable.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?
