Discover Dubai with a rental car 

The metropolis of Dubai is the largest city in the United Arab Emirates and is ideal for exploring with a rental car. While there, you can visit the Al-Fahidi Fort, stroll through the spice market with its oriental atmosphere and relax after a long day of sightseeing at Jumeirah Beach Park, Dubai's most beautiful city park. Or how about stopping off at the Miracle Garden, with its more than 45 million blooming flowers? If you want to explore this fascinating and unique city on your own, it is a good idea to rent a car. With Driveboo, you have the opportunity to compare all the car rental offers of the local car rental companies and book your rental car directly online.

When should I travel to Dubai?

The low humidity in the United Arab Emirates makes Dubai an attractive destination all year round. However, if you do not enjoy very hot weather, you should plan your trip in the period from December to the end of March, as temperatures in July and August regularly reach over 40° Celsius.

Where should I rent a car in Dubai?

If you are heading to Dubai from Europe, you should arrive at your destination feeling relatively rested—thanks to the manageable flight time—so it is worth considering renting a car at the airport. You not only benefit from favourable offers, good parking facilities and an extensive fleet of vehicles, but also from extended opening hours, which can be especially useful if you arrive or depart late in the evening.

Airport IATA Code Distance to the city centre
Dubai International DXB 14.2 km
Dubai World Central DWC 51.7 km
Sharjah International Airport SHJ 13 km

What insurance should I have for my rental car in Dubai?

In general, in Dubai, as in all other countries, you should definitely opt for full insurance without non-waivable excess in case of accident, damage or theft. In addition, the highest possible liability coverage is recommended. If you also want to travel outside of Dubai with your rental car, it may be advisable to buy additional windscreen or tire insurance.

Are there any age limits for renting a car in Dubai?

The minimum age to hire a car in Dubai is 21 for a normal car and 25 for a 4WD car.

Do I have to pay a toll in the United Arab Emirates?

In 2007, UAE introduced the so-called Salid Cards. The cost of a card is 100 UAE Dirhams. Each time you pass under a toll gate, 4 AED will be deducted from your card. You can purchase the cards in kiosks and garages. In order not to incur unexpected costs when renting a car, you should clarify with the car rental company exactly what is included in the rental price.

Can I find free parking for my rental car in Dubai?

Dubai offers plenty of free parking spaces. Most free parking is situated in the area between the Al Baraha Hospital and the Al Wasl District. You will rarely have a problem finding a safe place for your rental car as most hotels and shopping centres have a multitude of parking spaces you can use, either for free or for a fee.

How fast can I drive my rental car in Dubai?

You might think that, with all the sports cars in the city, there will be places where Dubai drivers are allowed to accelerate. However, this is not the case—any speeding at all is definitely unwelcome in Dubai. Therefore, please adhere to the maximum speeds listed below:

Type of road Maximum speed
Urban areas 50-80 km/h
Outside urban areas 100-120 km/h

What are the emergency numbers in Dubai?

Explore Dubai's surroundings in a rental car

What would a holiday in Dubai be without a trip to the desert? However, you do need to have some advanced driving skills if you plan on venturing with your rental car outside of the city to enjoy the desert landscape. The desert sand on the blistering hot road may require some rapid response abilities. When you arrive at the desert, hop on the back of a camel or horse for a sightseeing tour with a difference, and try your hand at sandboarding before heading back to the bustling metropolis. Here are some of the most interesting destinations outside of the city:

Destination Distance with a rental car Time
Ajman Museum 37.4 km 41 min
Al Jumooh Equestrian Centre 37.6 km 35 min
Sharjah Classic Car Museum 42.1 km 34 min
