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.

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!

Chevrolet Captiva in the UAE

Everything went fine. But only I did not understand why I paid some extra fine. There is a moment when I gave the car away, corresponded with three people, and it is not clear who was supposed to come, as a result, 2 employees of the company arrived for the car.

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

Mazda CX-5 in the UAE

It's not that it's bad at all, but... The car I ordered was not available, although I ordered in advance. I was offered another option and under different conditions (mileage limit per day), and then there were moments...

Ford Mustang GT Cabrio in the UAE

I’d say the experience was a bit painful as they’ve provided the other car instead and we’re waiting for it for more than 2 hours. But we understood that that was due to the driver got collision on the way to the meeting point, hence, they had to assign another car. Also, the documents were provided at time of the car return, which was a reason we’ve been a bit nervous during the day if we’re protected at all and the rent agencies services are legal. Finally, we’ve been told that the deposit will be returned in 21 working days which is kind of non sense for us - from our experience it come back in 14 calendar days as a maximum.

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

Hyundai Tucson in the UAE

1. We booked a car at the airport, but in fact we took a cab from the airport to our office. It is inconvenient with children and suitcases constantly overloaded. 2. The car was different, but not worse. 3. The rental itself was fine. 4. Then different people contacted me and asked the same questions about the return time, etc. 5. Then when I ordered a cab for 16.00 from the rental office to the airport, the drivers started calling me at 4.00 am, mixing up the morning with the evening. 6. Further when I arrived at their office, I had to go up to their office and had to deal with the cab for a long time. 7. Further every 10 minutes I was told that in 5 minutes will be a cab to the airport, was late for 35 min car in the end. 8. In general, the service is lame, to put it mildly. 9. In exchange for the inconvenience of nothing offered, even took extra money for not getting gasoline in double the amount.
