Mazda 6 in the UAE

Excellent service for finding cars in the UAE. And the best car rental company for residents of the Russian Federation. In connection with the absence of visa cards and the need to leave an impressive deposit, renting a car abroad has become an event not simple. This company has solved all issues in favor of the renter. It is the only one on the rental market that gives a car without a deposit, while keeping the rental price at a competitive level. I rented a Mazda 6 for 10 days for 1200 aed. The car is in good technical condition. Getting and returning the car was easy. I have not found a better offer and I have never regretted that I used the service of this company

Overall went well except for getting the car - had to wait an hour at the airport, and got the car without washing and cleaning after previous customers. Other than that, everything was fine.

Nissan Sunny in the UAE

Having arrived on vacation in the UAE at the end of February 2023, I decided to rent a car and travel around the neighboring emirates and Dubai itself. Before that I read the forums on how and through what company to rent a car (the difficulty was mainly in the absence of a credit card working in the UAE to make a deposit and the search for companies working with Russian cards). I had a choice between two car rental companies but after comparing prices I settled on LocalCarHires.com. I booked a car with the delivery to the hotel the next day, receiving and returning the car after 1.5 weeks passed without any problems (upon receipt and delivery, I and a representative of the local rental company, each on his phone took the car inside and outside checked the mileage and the amount of gasoline and I paid the passage of the UAE toll roads in the end). But since I didn't have a valid credit card, I paid the deposit in cash in the amount of 1500 dirhams. The local rental company had promised a refund in 3 weeks to my bank account or via money transfer. When I returned home and waited for my deposit to be refunded, I wrote to the local rental company representative about the deadline to send me my deposit. I gave them my bank account number (Raiffeisenbank accepts SWIFT transfers from UAE) and the second way through a money transfer system CONTACT (there are also points of acceptance in the UAE). But then the local company in the chat messaging on messaging that send via SWIFT to Russia will not work, and the system KONTAKT they do not know and can only offer Western Union (which does not accept remittances to Russia). In my correspondence with them passed 10 days and finally my annual question "When will I get my deposit refund?" and the answer of the local rental company "We are dealing with this problem. The dialogue for a refund came to a standstill. So I decided to seek help from LocalCarHires.com, the company through which I had booked my car from a local. After my explanation of the problem with the refund of the deposit, the support service contacted the local rental company and within three days, the local company returned the deposit to me (via money transfer system CONTACT, there are many money transfer offices in the UAE, including the popular Al Ansari Exchange network available in almost all malls). In my situation, the fact that I booked a car through a major rental company did not allow the locals to wash out my deposit.

Chevrolet Captiva in the UAE

Everything went fine. But only I did not understand why I paid some extra fine. There is a moment when I gave the car away, corresponded with three people, and it is not clear who was supposed to come, as a result, 2 employees of the company arrived for the car.

Everything went well. Nice clean car. They met me at the airport, took me to the office and gave the car back to me at the office. I brought the car back to the office myself and handed it over. In general, my impressions of the service and car rental are positive. I will recommend your service to my friends and acquaintances.

Renault Megane Sedan in the UAE

Good afternoon. Using the platform, I booked a Renault Megane in the UAE (Sharjah region). The rental company provided the car without any problems. However, when I returned the car, I found two scratches on the bottom of the bumper, which were definitely not my fault (or I inspected them inattentively, as they were on the bottom of the bumper). It seemed strange that during the inspection the representative immediately paid attention to them and did not examine the car further. Despite the insurance "FULL CASCO" (by the way, no insurance documents were not actually given to me) I was obliged to compensate for the damage. If you count on the insurance, then it is necessary, according to them, to go to the police and make a report on a minor accident, which is not possible, because there is no time, vacation with children and they are not left alone. The renter's representative said you could download an app, but it wasn't working (then I checked the website and it worked), which the representative most likely knew. The cost of reimbursement of two scratches was taken "out of thin air" and was not confirmed by anything (consultation with the office), no act was drawn up, except for the car return sheet, which had the appropriate marks on the scheme. I paid 525 dirham, the representative wanted to take cash, but I insisted through the terminal to make it official. Waited for the terminal for about an hour (brought another representative). Checked the fines, toll roads - all in the end I returned the car. But

In general, everything went well. The only nuance was when returning the car. The representative of the rental company did not come to return the car and said to leave the keys on the wheel of the car, I was not satisfied with this. I had to wait about an hour for the driver to arrive.
