Welcome to Avis

Arabian Hala Company

Arabian Hala is the family-owned company that is the exclusive Avis Rent-a-Car franchisee in Saudi Arabia. Our story began in Riyadh, where in 1977 we started operating as Hala Rent-a-Car – with a small fleet of just 27 vehicles. Through perseverance and hard work our business steadily grew and we began diversifying into other activities. In 1993 we were honoured to be awarded the Avis franchise against stiff competition from a long list of well-established candidates..
Over time we complemented our car rental business with an express courier service and a supply chain provider. Our continued success with these entities saw them evolve into joint-ventures with prominent Saudi Arabian companies such as Saudi Post and the Basamh Group. Of particular note is Naqel, our joint-venture with Saudi Post. Established by Royal Decree, Naqel is unique in being Saudi Arabia’s first ever private-public company.
Today Arabian Hala is active across many sectors and industries such as franchising, real estate, manufacturing and retail. Our corporate headquarters are located in Riyadh and we employ a multinational workforce of more than 3,000 highly trained and dedicated people.
In addition to Avis Saudi Arabia, our subsidiaries include:
  • Naqel
  • Hala Supply Chain Services
  • Specialized Automotive Company (sole distributor for MG Motor)
  • Hala Automotive Company (exclusive agent for Kumho Tires)
  • Hellmann Worldwide Logistics Saudi Arabia
