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.

Chevrolet Captiva in the UAE

Landlords are not decent!!! In the search criteria were set parameters for cash and without deposit, respectively, and the cost of rent is higher!!!! The order was confirmed and prepayment was taken, but by the appointed time the car was not provided. They started to demand a deposit or payment by card. On the question why so, the answer just struck "You are on the black list". What list if it is my first time in the UAE? They could not confirm it As a result of long dialogs the car was not provided, all our plans went to ruin. The deposit was barely returned after a long agreement. In a word, JULIET!!!

Mitsubishi Attrage in the UAE

The car was brought to the address, for this they took an additional 100 aedes, which was not warned anywhere, just in fact after paying the rent the agent said that you still need to pay extra. The reservation was for a day from 14 to 14, in the evening of the same day I wrote to the agent with the name Akil in watsapp that I want to extend for 2 more days, I asked the cost of renting each day, he wrote 11 aedes, I asked for an invoice for payment, it was at 22 pm on the day of renting, that is, it was still 16 hours before the end of the paid day. The bill was not sent to me. I planned a trip for the next day. The car was filled with gasoline on half a tank. But I decided to fill it up, it came out to 78 aedes. Only at 15 o'clock the next day another agent writes me that I have to pay, the sum for 2 days - 288 aedes. This pissed me off, as I read this message by accident, my phone caught wifi in the shopping center. Why wasn't the payment issue resolved in the morning when there was still internet in the hotel? I texted that I would return the car but in 2-3 hours. In the end around 17 hours wrote Akil that they can take the car. But it was standing until the next day, several people from different numbers in sucksap demanded to pay those unfortunate 144 aedes. But I used the car +3 hours to the paid hours and paid for gasoline for 78 aedes (by the way in rubles it turned out to be 70 rubles per liter, we were so surprised, all say about cheap gasoline in the UAE, but it was more expensive than in Russia). As a result, the car was taken away at 15 o'clock the next day. I left the UAE. And after almost a month this Akil writes to me again on WhatsApp that they will demand payment for + 1 day 144 dirhams through the court. I would have paid immediately an additional 288 aedes, but not stated +100 aedes when renting, and the fact that the bill for renewal did not send in advance very much pissed off. Different agents write from different numbers in watsapp, each other do not pass information. The number of the office is not, because when signing the documents did not leave me any contract. Only slips from the payment terminal. I highly do not recommend renting from Akil. He also sent voice messages instead of text - well class, it is a tourist a priori without internet.

Mazda 6 in the UAE

Very convenient. I booked the car a week before my arrival. Paid for the reservation directly on the site with a Russian card (which could not fail to please) The car was in excellent condition, clean and fueled. Strictly at the appointed place and time. The employee of the lessor, although he did not speak Russian, showed me everything, pointed out the faults on the car, gave me the contract to sign. Then I spent 4 days driving around the UAE on this beauty. The return of the car was also quick and without any problems. I recommend this service!

Chevrolet Aveo in the UAE

Everything went well. The only thing was that we had a long meeting with the car delivery driver. As we would have liked him to meet us in the arrival area, but in the end he met us at the fifth exit of the departure area, which is not very convenient at a large airport. The landlord charged 100 dirhams for washing the car, which will be deducted from the deposit. I am waiting for the deposit to be returned. And so the car is quite working, although a little battered by life, but for this money for the UAE it is a sin to complain

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.

In principle, everything is good, the only thing when getting the car the driver did not have change, you had to pay 355 dollars, I gave 400 and when returning the car did not give change, they said to check the fines and toll roads.

Hyundai Elantra in the UAE

I liked that the car was practically new, with a mileage of 3200 km. In general, everything went well, there were no problems. Of the minuses: bad feedback from your employees as a company that provides rental services. I had several questions that I wanted to know the information for, I was sent to the rental office, they themselves could not give an answer or did not want to. I also learned a little at the rental office, maybe people were busy there, or maybe they had non-working hours, I didn’t understand. The answers were short. If I were a less experienced traveler, I would be very worried about a rental car. By the way, the rental office does not respond during non-working hours, but your employees send to the rental office. I would like to be more customer-oriented, all the same, I order a car from you, and not somewhere else. Another surprise was the attempt of the person who gave the car to sell us full insurance. He convinced me that I bought insurance from your company and in case of problems I would need to contact you, but he could not help in any way. But if you buy from him, it will be easier, simpler and in general it will be more correct. I ended up leaving your insurance because it was cheaper :) Well, I would like more clarity on how and where to take and rent a car. I contacted the man from the rental office and he explained to me tersely. A detailed and up-to-date (!) instruction from you would be a big plus for your company. At least for me, as a tourist in an unfamiliar country, it would be calmer, even if the instruction was redundant.
