Tips for renting a car in Dubai

Before you rent
Choose wisely. In 2019 we introduced our multi-product system which helps you choose a car based on your needs and easily see the final price. Car rental insurance can be tricky to navigate and often isn't what you expect, by booking with us direct you'll receive the correct insurance for your rental.

When you collect your vehicle
Plan ahead. We recommend planning your route before you leave, especially when renting a car at an airport. Are you sure where you're meeting your chaperone or where the rental desk is? Your confirmation email will have the contact information for the location, so we suggest saving the number in your phone ahead of time.

Have the correct documents ready. We try and keep the check in process as painless as possible but we do need to process certain information for legal reasons so having these ready ahead of time can help speed up the process. Make sure you have your booking details ready, along with your driving licence, passport and valid credit card.

Complete a vehicle check. It's essential when you are taken to your car you complete a Vehicle Condition Report (VCR) and note any existing damage, paying particular attention to the five damage hotspots. If you don't report this, you may be liable for these damages when you return the vehicle. We don't want you to get caught out, so we've put together a handy vehicle inspection video to help you check everything thoroughly.

While you rent
Take care. Unfortunately you may be liable for any damage caused to a vehicle in your care, and this will vary depending on the product you choose. A large proportion of damages to any car can be dings you pick up in car parks, so be mindful when space is limited and park further away and walk a little further to your destination.

When you return your vehicle
Complete a vehicle check. It's time to carry out a VCR again and even more essential to fully log any damage, no matter how small, to ensure you are fully covered and we can process your return effectively. Be sure to check the vehicle as before, paying special attention to the five damage hotspots.

Once you have landed in Dubai and picked up your rental car from the designated office, we wish you a safe and delightful journey.

For those navigating Dubai's roads for the first time, take a moment to get acquainted with the vehicle, understand the UAE's traffic regulations, and plan your routes.

In the UAE, driving is on the right-hand side. A valid driving license from your home country is required, and depending on your country of origin, you may also need an International Driving Permit (IDP).

Dubai is known for its well-maintained roads and highways, but traffic can be heavy, especially during peak times. Driving in Dubai requires attention to speed limits and awareness of local driving habits, such as sudden lane changes or the presence of luxury sports cars at high speeds.

The speed limits in Dubai are generally 60 km/h in urban areas, 80 km/h on secondary roads, and 100-120 km/h on highways, with strict enforcement through speed cameras and fines for violators.

Fuel stations are abundant in Dubai and are conveniently located throughout the city and along major highways, making long-distance travel within the UAE straightforward.

What do I need to know about tolls in Dubai?

In Dubai, the toll system is known as "Salik," and it operates without toll booths. Tolls are automatically deducted from a prepaid account when vehicles pass under Salik gates. Setting up a Salik account involves purchasing a tag and sticking it to the windshield of your vehicle. It's essential for drivers, including those in rental cars, to ensure that their vehicle is equipped with a Salik tag to avoid fines for passing through toll zones without paying.
