6 Dubai Car Rental FAQ and the Answers

6 Dubai Car Rental FAQHello, traveler. Here are the answers to the frequently asked questions regarding car rental in Dubai.

  1. What are the requirements to avail a car for rent?

Almost all companies who offer car rental deals in Dubai require the same documents from their clients. If you are a UAE resident, you need to bring your UAE driver’s license, and one copy each of your residential visa, passport, and Emirates ID. On the other hand, a tourist needs to bring his valid driver’s license from the country where he came from, a copy of his passport, and a copy of the visa stamp, or visit visa.

  1. Can my spouse, friend or family member drive the car I hired?

Sorry, but no. Most car rental companies only allow the person who submitted the driving license to drive the hired vehicle. In case of an accident, if the person driving is not you, the police can charge you with an offense. If you want to register another driver on the leased car, you may do so with additional fees.

  1. What is the mileage limit for a car for rent?

The mileage limit for a hired car varies depending on the company. Some companies offer unlimited mileage, while the others charge a certain amount if you go over 200km or so. Make sure to ask about the rental terms before you sign a rental agreement.

  1. Do I have to pay for the car’s fuel?

There are some cases that companies provide special offers and promotions which include free fuel on the vehicles. But usually, the customers would pay for the car’s fuel. There’s nothing to worry about though since the cost of fuel in Dubai is much more affordable compared to fuel price in other countries.

In Dubai, cars for rent come with FM radio, air conditioner, USB, and Bluetooth.  You may request for GPS, WiFi, child seats, etc. to the car rental company for additional amount.
