There are many car rental companies in Dubai and the United Arab Emirates, and several of them have branches in the different cities.

Dubai Car RentalCar hire companies in the UAE can be classified into two categories, which directly relate to the security deposit left when renting a car. Category 1 or credit card deposit rent a car companies require that you present a valid credit card on collection of the car, which is either imprinted/photocopied or blocked/reserved for a given amount. Category 2 or passport deposit rent a car companies require that a passport is left as a deposit, and the passport holder must sign the car rentals form.

What are the requirements to Rent A Car

Most car rental companies require that the driver be over the age of 21 and has driven for over a year. They also require that the driver's license be a valid UAE, GCC, or International drivers' license. Some companies also charge additional fees for driver's who are under the age of 25. As stated above, most rent a car companies are shifting to the credit card deposit security system, which means that they require a credit card for you to rent a car. Most companies will also require that you submit the following documents - passport photocopy and driver’s license photocopy.

Damage and Personal Insurance

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) - The payment of CDW will waive any damage costs that occur due to an accident, where you are at fault.

Personal Accident Insurance (PAI) - This insurance will cover physical injuries or death caused to the occupants of the vehicle. The compensation will depend on the nature of the injuries.

Other Car Rental Services

Most car rental companies can provide a baby/child car seat, which normally costs Dhs. 50 (US$ 14) or Dhs. 75 per day, and they can also provide a roof rack. Some companies provide a chauffeur service and others provide a 24-hour breakdown assistance service.

 

Car Leasing

A number of car hire companies offer car leasing services, which allow individuals to lease the car for months. The leasing amount is fixed and maintenance for the car is handled by the company.
