Car hire FAQs

  • What are the requirements to hire a car in United Arab Emirates?

    There are several things you need to keep in mind when it comes to car hires in the United Arab Emirates. Car hire locations in United Arab Emirates usually require copies of your passport, visa and your driving licence along with an international driving permit regardless of the language your licence is in. Your licence needs to a permanent and not a temporary one. You must be at least 21 years of age to hire a car in the UAE, and drivers below the age of 25 and over the age of 70 might be subject to additional fees depending on the car hire provider. You will not be able to pay for your hired cars in United Arab Emirates with cash, so make sure you have a credit card in your name handy.

  • What are the rules for driving in United Arab Emirates?

    One of the most important driving rules in the United Arab Emirates is that the country has zero tolerance towards alcohol consumption when driving – not even one sip is allowed – so make sure you leave your economy car hire at your hotel when you’re going out for drinks! The traffic in the UAE is on the right-hand side of the road, and the road networks are new and modern. There are the occasional challenges such as chickens or camels on the road, so keep your eyes peeled. Seatbelts are compulsory for both front and rear passengers in any type of vehicle and phones can be used only hands-free. Speed limits are: 100-160km/h on highways, 100km/h in rural areas, 40-80km/h in residential areas. It’s still a great idea to check with the local department of motor vehicles for any recent law changes. Parking is usually relatively easy in cities as most buildings provide parking, and there are many multi-storey car parks throughout. Parking can be paid for at meters, with a text or via different apps.
