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.

Mazda 3 in the UAE

Basically everything went fine. But there were unpleasant moments when receiving and returning the car. After booking on the site, I was contacted via WhatsApp by a car rental company from the UAE. I asked to send a photo of my documents, the address of issue and return of the car and flight numbers of arrival and return departure. I booked pickup and drop off at Al Maktoum Airport. Specified the time of issuance and return of the car on the site. He also confirmed the time of issuance and return of the company's car to the lessor - they confirmed that the car would be at the airport at the specified time. But the courier brought the car for 1.5 hours. Later. Before returning the car a day in advance, the lessor asked to confirm the time and place of return via WhatsApp. I confirmed - 5.00AM, Al Maktoum airport. He also pointed out that my departure was at 7.00AM and that the delay of the courier to return the car was highly undesirable. The company confirmed that it received this information (I can send correspondence if interested). But no one came to the airport in the morning to process the return of the car. I had to leave the car key in the car key box that was installed in the registration window of one of the car rental companies located at the airport. I took a picture of the box and its location, and the car in the airport parking lot - I sent the companies on WhatsApp with a description of the situation. After arriving in the country of residence, the company's courier contacted me via WhatsApp asking where to find the key at the airport - I sent him again a photo and a box at the airport. After 2 hours, I contacted the company - they confirmed to me that the car was safely picked up from the airport and the car return process was completed and the deposit blocked on my card would be returned within 30 days from the day the car was returned. Here is such a story. 4. - Also, the car was issued with a battery in the remote control with an immobilizer that had almost lost its charge. Didn't notice right away. The first day I had to start the car close to bring the remote control to the start button. And lock and unlock the car with a mechanical key. I contacted the company's support - they reported the battery model and sent a video instruction on how to replace it. But it turned out that the battery model number was reported incorrectly - I had to buy another one.🙂

Ford Mustang GT Cabrio in the UAE

I wish it were better. There are no questions about the car. I didn’t like two things: 1. We received the car with 10 km of petrol left. We nearly died out while we found a gas station. Upon arrival, I wanted to relax and not to be puzzled where to find a gas station. As a result, we devoted half of the evening to this issue instead of just traveling on business. 2. Delivery of a car - a person is late, it is very difficult to communicate, he does not understand anything and can not get through in any way. We were late for the event due to a delay in submission. Delayed not inspection of the car, namely the arrival of a person. In the end, it wasn't even he who came. To be honest, there is no desire to use the service again. The experience is rather negative than positive. If the fuel policy is principled, they would have warned in advance, I would have paid for a full tank.

I was expected to take exactly same car as I ordered but they give me Mitsubishi Outlander, the steering wheel always turned to the right even on a flat road, I had to constantly steer it to go straight which was not ok. Overall, car was not on good condition at all.

Everything was fine.On the last day because of local holidays there were no free drivers to pick up cars from the hotel. As a result, we had one more day of free riding, i.e. free of charge. It turns out that it is not Friday, but Sunday parking is free.
