Everything is ok, except guides about the place at the airport, where we could meet with the company representative and drop off the car.

Suzuki Ciaz in the UAE

I rented a Suzuki from February 22 to 25 of this year but received a Nissan instead an hour late from the appointed time. The car was in terrible condition, due to lack of time to wait for another car, I was forced to pick this one up and the first thing I did was go to the car wash. The fuel level was slightly higher than the empty tank, but I returned it with the same level. The driver who brought the car was very friendly. The manager with whom I contacted via WhatsApp kindly prepared all the documents in advance and receiving the car at the airport terminal took only a few minutes. After returning the car to the same place, I was told that after 14 days I could receive the cash deposit back. After two weeks, I contacted the manager about payment but could not get an answer for 4 days. in the end, after four days of silence, they told me that they meant 14 working days and that the period expires this week, and the money will be transferred to me on Monday of the next week, that is, March 18th. Overall I was pleased. Will I use the services of "takecars.com" again? - Probably yes. Thank you. Best wishes.

Ford Mustang GT Cabrio in the UAE

I’d say the experience was a bit painful as they’ve provided the other car instead and we’re waiting for it for more than 2 hours. But we understood that that was due to the driver got collision on the way to the meeting point, hence, they had to assign another car. Also, the documents were provided at time of the car return, which was a reason we’ve been a bit nervous during the day if we’re protected at all and the rent agencies services are legal. Finally, we’ve been told that the deposit will be returned in 21 working days which is kind of non sense for us - from our experience it come back in 14 calendar days as a maximum.

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

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!

Volkswagen Jetta in the UAE

Everything went fine, the only thing I didn't understand was that the deposit for 21 is blocked, it wasn't announced on the website. If I knew about it I wouldn't have waited for the rental company to return the car, I guess I could have left the keys in the car. And that we had to wait for them for about 30 minutes, and in the end it is not clear why. But in general everything is great

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

car was delivered to the hotel, the driver took all the pictures of the car and sent it to me in whatsapp. There were no visible issues and i signed the paper. I requested the car for one day, but the driver contacted me late in the evening and said that he was expecting me to return the car the same day. I said that he can take the car, that we have already finished our trip. The driver thoroughly checked the car and said that everything was ok except that I draw 70km over the limit of contract and I need to pay 5 Dirham.

Everything is great, thank you. We were late both times to pick up and drop off the car, but it was not a crucial moment. The car was fresh, we didn't take a deposit, the car was handed over without any problems.
