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.

Everything was great. The car was clean, cozy. We drove it around the UAE, went from Dubai to Fujairah, visited a mosque. And in general I had a great time with my wife, also thanks to the availability of the car.

Nissan X-Trail in the UAE

I can recommend this company. Because there was not even a hint of a "scam" and so on. Moreover, I was given a 2023 Xtrail! Auto surprisingly Pret and I even checked its all-wheel drive on the sand, but at speeds above 140km begins to drive, another minus all rented cars are not tinted, the company should have tinted, at least partially in the cheapest film. The guy "delivery man" himself noted a scratch on the panel, which I would not even notice, no way! When handing over, similarly, they didn't look for anything on purpose, moreover, it turned out that I didn't fill up the fuel, thinking that I was handing over the car with 50% level, they said that 60% I started to resist, they eventually forgave :D When I finally found the photo, saw that there was a real misunderstanding and it was 60% I gave the driver the amount for fuel, thinking that they themselves will solve everything, but he refueled it and sent me the photo and the receipt :D I thought he will take to himself on Tips already. Also the car was in the dust so to speak, I wiped what I could, but still, although the requirement to return the car clean! But that's sometimes very difficult after a trip through the desert. I told about it earlier, they said it's OK. P.S.. By experience of delivery and return, it is better to take and put the car yourself if possible, otherwise the terms in Dubai are not predictable.

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.

Suzuki Ciaz in the UAE

The rental went great. The car was new, 4800 km mileage. Polite staff quickly completed the paperwork, waited 5 minutes and the car was already waiting downstairs. I drove more than 1300 km. I am satisfied with the car and the service. The delivery of the car was just as fast. I will advise my friends!

Nissan X-Terra in the UAE

The car was picked up and handed over late at night, we were kept, and when handed over, not even inspected, just asked to park send a photo and give the keys to the guard. Conveniently no deposit, the car is very comfortable. The attitude to the client is good. We have looked through a lot of offers before and in my opinion they offer the best conditions!!!!. If I come again, I will definitely turn to them.
