Default Job Offer at Dammam Airport - Best Place to Live

I have just been offered a position at Dammam airport. Can anyone recommend any furnished/serviced apartments that are ok and are an easy commute. Not bothered about being on a compound. Only need a one bedroom as family not accompanying. Is it best to live in Dammam or Al Khobar? or?

Any estimated cost per month would be useful.

I have worked in Riyadh before but Dammam is new territory for me. There were plenty of service apartments in Riyadh so I am assuming the same for Dammam?

I still have a KSA driving license that has not expired. (2019). Is that still valid or will I have to get a new one because employer will be different?

Any feedback appreciated.

You'll have to get a new license because the number on the license must match the number on your ID. It's fairly straightforward to get a new one. You pay a fee online, and then go to the office and present your old license. Five minutes later you should have the new one.
