Renault Megane Sedan in the UAE

The rental car went very well. They met us at the airport, showed us the car and helped us get settled. Of the minuses, the manager forgot to give us the key and had to run to the airport building to get it, and he did not tell us how much airport parking was paid and we had to pay extra for it later. Our rent a car we were very satisfied with. The manager answered our questions about driving the car. At the end of renting, I was contacted by WhatsApp one day in advance to clarify whether all plans are in force. I rented the car at the agreed place near the airport, then we were driven to the airport. I was very pleased with the rental and have already recommended your service to my friends to rent a car.

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.

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.

Jetour Dashing in the UAE

The Company does not provide an invoice. The executing company did not hand out the car without cash payment although credit card payment was mentioned by LocalCarHires.

Volkswagen Jetta in the UAE

Had an incident, swapped to another car promptly, so did not drive this car. Everything was good, only the large commission (10%) for deposit return was disappointing

Hyundai Accent in the UAE

Rented Nissan Kicks from March 21 to 27. We booked a Hyundai Accent in advance through the website, but they provided Nissan Kicks at the same price. The replacement was previously agreed with us via Whatsapp. The car is in excellent condition. Everything went well. Receipt and return of the car was at Al Maktoum airport. Rental payment and deposit were paid in cash. The deposit was fully refunded after four weeks on a sberbank card. So I can safely recommend TakeCars!
