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.

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.

Nissan Sunny in the UAE

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.

Renault Duster in the UAE

Ordered a Renault Duster 4x4 for the day, but in fact brought 2008 Peugeot monopride. The car is fresh, no deposits were asked for, I didn't catch any fines during the day. There were some minor hiccups with the delivery of the car (the driver was late), but fortunately everything went well. Thank you very much to TakeCars and Rodi's team! I will use them again!

everything is fine with the car. After renting the car they wrote 2 weeks later, they wanted to charge us for one more day of renting, although we turned everything in on time. I think we agreed that everything was fine

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!!!

Kia Sorento in the UAE

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.

Toyota Camry in the UAE

I got an Audi A3 instead of a Camry, it didn't affect me in any way. Everything went perfectly, I received it in Dubai mall and handed it over at the airport. There were no problems, the price was fine. The landlord was always in touch. Feedback on the site, also everything is fine, it is convenient that you can pay by RF card, in the UAE paid through Union Pay. I would like to be able to pay 100% of the rent on the site, 15-20% to write off and the rest with a hold and then write off after the fact, so as not to pay directly to the landlord. It was very convenient that there was no deductible or deposit.
