Car Hire in United Arab Emirates

Wait a moment!
We're looking at local car rentals to find a great deal for you.

Driving in the Emirates is an unbridled pleasure: the roads are magnificent; fuel prices are low and the views are spectacular.

The Emirates are packed with attractions for all tastes: both believers and non-believers are welcome at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi; a visit to the Dubai Mall shopping centre is highly recommended for those who love shopping or going out on the town; see the Gold Souk market or the Dubai Spice Souk (Dubai Spice Souk) for a glimpse into ancient traditions; nature lovers will not want to miss the Dubai Miracle Garden. 

The best way to get the most out of your time in this incredible country is to rent a car. Having a car means you won’t need to depend on public transport timetables, be confined to guided tours or engulfed by avalanches of tourists... You will be free to do everything in your own good time! 

What you need to rent a car

Car rental in the Emirates has its own specifics. You’ll need:

  • IDP
  • Bank card.
  • Foreign passport.

How to pay for car rental

When booking a car on our website, you see all the necessary information, such as the total order price, deposit amount, and technical condition of the vehicle immediately.

When booking, you only make an advance payment of 15%. You pay the rest when you pick up your car. 

The deposit will be returned thirty (30) days after return of the vehicle.

Picking up and dropping off a car

You can pick up or drop off the car at the airport or wherever it is convenient for you in the city. 

  • Make sure you have a voucher (can be presented in electronic form), an IDP and a foreign passport. 
  • Note all scratches and dents, if any, in the vehicle inspection chart. We recommend that you take photos or record video, just in case. 
  • Read carefully and sign the rental agreement. Pay the rest of the rental amount and make a deposit. 

The pick-up usually takes 15-20 minutes.

The drop-off is just as easy and takes about 10 minutes. Arrive on time, wash the car in advance, and do not forget about the fuel policy of the company.

Have a nice trip!
