FAQ
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for a rental car should preferably be made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by a main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. The main and additional drivers are to present a valid driving license, which they have been in possession of for at least one year (please refer to the rental conditions), and a valid identity card/passport. Additionally, the main driver is to present a valid credit card issued in their name.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of a delay. As a rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver is to present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driving's license and their valid credit card.

Why rent a car in Dubai?

Known for its hot weather, beaches, and extravagance, Dubai is a popular vacation destination. It attracts over 15 million people worldwide each year and is favored by both families and couples. It's popular to rent a car in Dubai for easy convenient travel.

What to do in Dubai?

Some people are surprised to learn Dubai is a state, not a country. It's part of the United Arab Emirates, a group of seven Arab states, also known as "the Emirates," which include Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah, Sharjah, and Umm Al Quwain. As such, when you book a rental car in Dubai, you are not limited to just Dubai. Car hire in Dubai gives you access to all of the United Arab Emirates. Below are a few of the most popular destinations for Dubai and the UAE: 

  • The Burj Khalifa: The Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world and has become one of Dubai's landmarks. It dominates the skyline in a way no other building can, and the view from its observation deck is amazing.
  • Dubai Mall: Dubai is known for shopping, and the Dubai Mall is home to everything. It houses the Dubai Aquarium and is a shopping and entertainment wonderland. It contains too many shops and restaurants to list and is worth a day trip. If you book a cheap car rental in Dubai, it's a cost-effective way of carrying all your shopping!
  • Sheikh Zayed Mosque: The Sheikh Zayed Mosque is in Abu Dhabi and is an architectural wonder. The building is breathtaking, and its huge open square floor in a desert is a sight to see. It has an open-door policy to tourists and entrance is free, which makes it a great day trip stop.
