First Makrona Guide

Jeddah is a busy port and city on Saudi Arabia's west seaboard. It is home to 3.5 million people and is a leading Middle East trade and industry hub. Jeddah is also becoming a popular destination for tourists due to its eclectic shopping and dining establishments, as well as its beaches. Car hire at First Makrona is an ideal travel choice.

The main entry point for international arrivals to Jeddah is King Abdulaziz International Airport. The airport is 20kms north of Jeddah City Centre. Makarona Road runs southwards from the airport and offers access to hotels, shopping centres and car hire at First Makrona service stations.

Makarona Road runs parallel to Jeddah's Red Sea beach and its esplanade, Corniche Road. It crosses several major city thoroughfares such as Sari Road and Tahlia Street. Tahlia Street is one of Jeddah's larger shopping precincts and has stores selling the latest designer clothes and electronic gadgets.

A good way of avoiding Jeddah's daytime heat is to enjoy air-conditioned car rental at First Makrona. The Al Bahad District is Jeddah's historic quarter and has winding alleys going to coral edifices and traditional bazaars. The bazaars, or souqs, sell a wide range of souvenirs and miscellaneous items.

Jeddah is also the gateway to Mecca and its Grand Mosque. The mosque houses the iconic Ka'aba. Mecca can be reached via Highway 5 from Jeddah. Taif is another 60kms from Mecca. Taif is on mountain slopes and receives cooler weather than Jeddah. Taif has a Turkish Fortress, fertile gardens and is close to ancient rock carvings. Cheap car hire at First Makrona is a budget travel solution.

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?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
