Renting a car in the UAE: your gateway to freedom

Renting a car in the UAE gives you unmatched freedom to explore: no more waiting on public transport or sticking to fixed-schedule group tours. To rent a car, you'll need an International Driving Permit (IDP), your national driver's license, a credit card, and your passport.

Driving in the Emirates is a pleasure, with its well-maintained roads, affordable fuel, and breathtaking scenery. From the awe-inspiring Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi to the bustling Dubai Mall and the sparkling gold souks, there's a wealth of sights to see. Don't miss unique spots like Dubai's Garden of Wonders, all within easy reach by car.

With our 24/7 roadside assistance, help is always just a call away for any inquiries you might have. Additionally, enjoy the flexibility of free cancellations up to seven days before your trip and take advantage of promotional discounts like "LOCAL".

Where to rent a car in the UAE

If you're setting out in your rented car in the UAE, consider visiting these world-renowned tourist destinations:

Dubai: Beyond the famed Dubai Mall, ascend the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, and dive into the city's vibrant nightlife.
Abu Dhabi: Revel in the architectural marvel of the Sheikh Zayed Mosque and explore the myriad attractions of Yas Island.
Sharjah: Discover the cultural heritage in Sharjah's museums and traditional markets.
Fujairah: Seek out tranquility on its serene beaches and scenic mountain trails.

Pick-up and return your rental car at convenient locations like the airport. Just present your voucher, MVU, and passport, inspect the car for any existing damage, and sign the rental agreement. Returning the car is straightforward — just ensure it's on time and refueled according to the company's policy.

Mercedes-Benz C300 Cabrio in the UAE

On 21.12.2023 rented a Mercedes convertible car in the UAE DUBAI. On your website and in the booking documents it was stated that no deposit was required! On December 21 the driver arrived, was late for the appointed time and demanded a deposit. The deposit had to be made in cash or by card at the terminal. We did not have this amount in cash, the cards are Russian. The driver refused the service and drove away. In WhatsApp with the Russian-speaking manager we agreed that the driver would return, provide the service, and we would send the deposit to the Russian card. All this took a very long time, the driver came back, checked us in, handed over the car, meaning we took the car 2-3 hours late. We decided to clarify with the manager of your company, whether the next day we can give the car a little later, because we took it later than the necessary time. The answer we got was that no problem, it's not a big deal. We asked for the car for 2 hours later. All correspondence, conversations with this manager are available. At the appointed time for the driver, the driver was again late and arrived 40-50 minutes later. We were told that the deposit would be refunded within 18 business days. We were also told that the deposit is an amount that is taken to write off fines and road tolls. After a while we were sent a document and the deposit was returned. BUT! the deposit was transferred to us at a rate at which we lost a lot of money! At least no one told us that the exchange rate during the transfer will be such and you will lose money. Deposit is basically the cost, which is returned in full amount!!!!. Most importantly we were counted 2 full days! With all the arrangements. The manager promised to sort out the situation and refund the money for the second day. In the end, a few weeks later, for him just began to answer another person who does not even get into the situation Please resolve the issue. It's been more than 2 months, reviews of your firm are good, would not want to solve the issue in a legislative way, appeal to the police.

Nissan Altima in the UAE

Very pleased with everything. I easily booked a car for the dates through the app. Without knowing the language at all, they gave me a car with two documents. Nice people. They didn't take any deposits. The car was clean, new, almost like in the picture. They explained how to pay for paid parking. I drove it from Dubai to Abu Dhabi. Handed the car back at the end. No fines or extra money was charged. Everyone was very nice, I can recommend them!

Chevrolet Captiva in the UAE

We rented a car via LocalCarHires.com website. We picked it up at the airport quietly, at the scheduled time after we arrived. The representative of the car rental company was waiting for us. Everything was simple and easy. Car was new and equipped with baby seats that we requested before. On the return day, also at the airport, we agreed on the time and the representative of the company was there to pick up the car. In short, everything was very correct and good, with no surprises.

Nissan Sunny in the UAE

The car was delivered on time, as ordered, 2023 year. The price was as stated in the voucher, no hidden extras. I paid the balance in local currency in cash. The staff was responsive, they helped me to change dirhams in the bank, I have problems with English. There were small scratches on the car, all noted in the act when transferring the car. When returning the car was checked, new scratches did not appear. In general, everything is good, I can recommend the company.

Nissan Sunny in the UAE

I am satisfied with the car rental. I booked a car for the entire duration of my vacation. The car is in good condition. Correspondence with the managers was at a basic level of English. Depositing a deposit is really not necessary. When handing over the rental car, all existing damages outside and inside are documented in the protocol. The car was delivered to the hotel and picked up there at my request. The trip went smoothly, and the return of the car went just as smoothly. Everything is simple and clear. I will definitely turn to them for my next trip.
