Nissan Sunny in the UAE

We rented a car from 12.10.2023 to 20.10.2023. We wanted to pick up the car from the airport, booked it, but forgot to send the documents in advance. We sent all the necessary data upon arrival in UAE. The company went to the meeting, our car was brought to the hotel at no extra charge. The staff was friendly. We got the car quickly, clearly, without any questions. The car Nissan Sunny is new, in excellent condition, it was enough for a family of 5 people. Drove carefully, so the delivery of the car was as fast and easy. Thank you! We will contact you again.

Hyundai Tucson in the UAE

Everything is good, except that there is no possibility to pick up the car immediately at the airport. On arrival I had to wait 40 minutes for a transfer to the office, in the office I had to wait 50 minutes for the rental car to arrive. Total after arrival time to the moment when I sat in the rented car was 2 hours. There are no claims to the condition of the car. When handing over the car, the receiver wanted to divorce me for 20 adh for gasoline, although there was more in the tank than when I took the car. After my mentioning the terms of the contract in terms of gasoline "same to same" there were no more questions. And it is also very inconvenient that the acceptance of the car takes place in a city parking lot, a place in which it is quite problematic to find. Besides, there is a chance to get a fine for unpaid parking. At the same time, the office has an underground parking lot. It is unclear why it cannot be used for pickup and drop-off.

Mitsubishi Attrage in the UAE

On 08/23/2018 we rented a car through Localcarhires.com company. Initially we applied for a Mitsubishi Attrage. But the guys brought us another car: Toyota Camry. The car was brought to our hotel at the time we appointed and it was picked up from there. Delivery and pickup was free of charge for us. The car was in perfect condition, clean, there were 2 bottles of water in the car. We had to return the car on 27.08 at 14.00, we asked the guys from the company to extend the rental period until 23 pm, which was agreed by the company and the car was taken away from us at 23 hours. We want to say a huge thank you to Aqeel - we were very comfortable and pleasant to communicate with you and your company. We will definitely rent a car from you next time.

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.

Porsche 718 Boxster S in the UAE

I liked everything the car was delivered at 10:00, I forgot and only woke up at 10, but they waited for me, they took me away too at 10, I gave it with a full tank, there was a Gas Station nearby, everything was convenient on the Site, I immediately chose the model that I liked, 2 people wrote to me they explained everything in vatsap in detail, the car is just emotions, I have Kaen in Kiev, I thought to take a boxter as a second car, but I think it won't go for Kiev, but for Dubai, the very thing, you won't go with an open roof during the day, it's very hot, although some are desperate they drive (they also took a convertible, you can immediately see ours) and in the evening ride in a thrill, but if it's already uncomfortable on the highway above 100 km, I'm generally satisfied with the car and the service, I hope next time I'll take something better or if I live far from the center Something simpler for the entire stay, a taxi is expensive to go far, it's easier to take a regular car, I'm waiting for you to return the deposit, I hope there are no fines, I tried. And it's also important to keep track of the km, I dashed off 230 km from 250 available

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.
