Where should I hire 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 hiring 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 hired car in Dubai?

Hired car insurance

The right insurance

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 hired car, it may be advisable to buy additional windscreen or tire insurance.

Traffic rules in Dubai

Are there any age limits for hiring a car?

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 UAE?

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 hiring a car, you should clarify with the car hire company exactly what is included in the rental price.

Is there free parking 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 hired car as most hotels and shopping centres have a multitude of parking spaces you can use, either for free or for a fee.

What are the speed limits?

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

Emergency numbers

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 hired car outside of the city to enjoy the desert landscape.

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:
