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.

Kia K5 in the UAE

In general everything was good, the cars were great, everything worked well, no problems). BUT the discipline of managers - leaves much to be desired. Not when receiving or returning the car, the driver could not arrive on time. We waited for him for 1.5 hours each time.

Nissan X-Terra in the UAE

I liked everything. The rental service itself is very convenient, you can put filters and customize the car to your request - this is a huge plus. Also the prices through TakeCars are lower than doing it directly through the rental company. Convenient way to pay and book a car with a Russian card. Quick confirmation. The rental company itself and the car is in good order, no comments. We received exactly the car that was on the photo and in the description, without substitutions. The only thing is that we made a little mistake with the car, we should have taken something more mobile and dynamic

Nissan Altima in the UAE

Very pleased with everything. I easily booked a car for the dates through the app. Without knowing the language at all, they gave me a car with two documents. Nice people. They didn't take any deposits. The car was clean, new, almost like in the picture. They explained how to pay for paid parking. I drove it from Dubai to Abu Dhabi. Handed the car back at the end. No fines or extra money was charged. Everyone was very nice, I can recommend them!

Mitsubishi ASX in the UAE

Everything went perfectly! The car we chose was clean, new and new! The driver was in touch with us before the rental and before the rental. Before the rental, the driver waited patiently while we looked everything over, answered all questions and explained everything to us no matter what we asked. A day's worth of fines were written which we assumed, of course we had unextended parking. It was agreed with the driver that we would hand him cash to pay the fine. The deposit was returned very quickly - and this is a big and fat plus. In general, very satisfied with your service ! Thank you for this

Mitsubishi ASX in the UAE

Yes, everything went well! Except that the security deposit was not 2000 aed but 2500 aed. The car is brand new with 12,000 miles. By the way ! I completely forgot .... A gps signal jammer is installed on the car !!!!!! in order to rent a navigator from them. I had my own navigator with all the points where I usually go .... I was offered a navigator for 200 dirhams. I refused. My sat nav couldn't pick up satellites in the car and I had to go outside, pick up satellites and drive to the hotel with my hand out the window... which is not safe. At the hotel, I wrote an angry message to the manager that if they did not turn off the jammer, I would report the intrusive service to the police! I was furious at such disrespect for customers, which looked like revenge for refusing to rent a navigator ... .. In the morning, the jammer was already turned off. I always take a car when I travel to different countries, but I have never seen anything like this, especially in the UAE, and it was the 15th trip. Previously, when I ordered a car through Emirates, I did not need to move from terminal to terminal by taxi to pick up or return the car.
