Car Hire FAQs

What are the requirements to hire a car in Dubai?

If you hire a car in Dubai, then you need to be 21 years of age. However, some vehicles, such as luxury car hire in Dubai or passenger van hire, require you to be older. To get hire cars in Dubai, you will need a valid driver’s licence that’s at least one year old. You will need to have an up-to-date passport too. When it comes to paying for your cheap car hire in Dubai, you will need to use a valid credit card that is in the main driver’s name.

What are the rules for driving in Dubai?

For your car hire in Dubai, seatbelts are a requirement in the front and back, and children under four years of age must also be in a suitable child restraint. You need to drive on the right-hand side of the road in your Dubai car hire, and there is a zero tolerance on drinking whilst driving, so this means you cannot have consumed any alcohol before getting behind the wheel. You can drive your car hire in Dubai at 140 kph (87 mph) on the motorway, whilst in urban areas, the speed limit is 80 kph (50 mph). If you want to ensure you are up to date with the current laws when driving your Dubai car hire, you should contact the local authorities to ensure there have been no recent changes.

What type of car is recommended for driving in Dubai?

Dubai is an impressive city with many great sites to visit. So, whether you want an economy car hire or something more fancy, there will be something for everyone. If you’re staying in the city, it might be best to get a smaller car, such as a Suzuki Swift. This will be easier to park and better for nipping around Dubai. However, if you’re going into the desert, then a Nissan Kicks SUV might be a good option, as it can handle the terrain better. Car hire in Dubai is very popular, so, no matter the type of vehicle you’re after, you’ll have a great range to pick from.

If you are going out for dinner in your cheap car hire in Dubai, then you could also use a paid parking area, such as Dubai Marina Parking. This is a stone’s throw from the Dubai Marina and costs around Dh15 (£3) per hour, so it’s relatively good value. In general, there is lots of parking in Dubai, so you should be able to find a space easily enough.
