Net Safety Score
We’ve introduced a metric indicating how safe travellers feel when using our services during the COVID-19 pandemic. After every ride, we ask each traveller to leave a review.
20 minute gap between transfers
Following each ride, our drivers have at least 20 minutes to thoroughly clean the surfaces of the car and ventilate the cabin.
Regular Car Sanitisation
Our drivers thoroughly sanitise and disinfect cars according to Welcome Safety Protocol
When you book, you can request to have zero contact with the driver during the transfer with just one click. In this case, the driver won’t help you with your luggage or shake hands.
Sanitiser in every car
We provide hand sanitisers and hand wipes for all our travellers. Our drivers have their own sanitiser, which they use before and after every ride

Directions for your Riyadh Airport Taxi to the City Centre
King Khalid International Airport (RUH), also known as Riyadh Airport, is the main airport in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia. It is the second largest airport in the country, after Jeddah Airport, bringing in over 20 million travellers a year. Located 40km southwest of the airport, Riyadh city centre is only 30 minutes away.
After getting into your Riyadh airport taxi, your driver will leave RUH by heading northwest on Access Departure Level. They will then keep right at the fork and continue toward Airport Road/King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Rd/Route 539. Your Welcome driver will continue on Airport Road/King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Rd/Route 539 to Northern Ring Rd/Route 40/Route 80M for 15 minutes before taking the exit from Airport Road/Route 539. They will continue on Northern Ring Rd/Route 40/Route 80M before taking King Fahd Rd/Route 65 to Olaya St. Your driver will then turn left onto Olaya St/Prince Muhammad Ibn Abd Al Aziz, before taking the local roads in Riyadh city centre to reach your exact destination.
Fare for a Standard Airport Taxi in Riyadh
Taxis in Riyadh calculate their fares using a taximeter based on time and distance travelled. Although, taxis leaving the airport offer fixed rates to various locations around the city. The fixed-rate fare for your Riyadh airport to Downtown trip should be €18.70 (SR 70), though unless you book your ride in advance, this may vary.
