Top 15 Things to know when renting a car in Dubai: Comprehensive Guide 2021

Ask any resident of the United Arab Emirates what the best way to experience the country would be, and they'll all have the same answer- drive. With one of the most advanced road infrastructures globally- including massive superhighways and interchanges- the country roads are built for drivers. Renting a car will definitely improve your trip and help you make memories that will last forever.

Many of the best experiences the country has to offer are far removed from the hubbub of its main cities. If you ever want to catch the sunset over the Al Qudra Oasis, kayak through the stunning lakes of Hatta or experience the awe-inspiring views from the top of Jabel Jais, a car is a must.

Although many tourist sites can be accessed using public transport, your wallet will thank you for renting a car. Fares for airport transfers, inter-city trips and taxis to more out-of-the-way spots can rack up quickly, making having your transportation the most budget-friendly option.

Don't let rigid pick-up schedules and inflexible timetables limit your experience. The greatest thing about renting a car can offer the freedom to forge your trail and create your adventures.

1. What documents do I need to rent a car in Dubai?


Because it is such a popular choice among visitors, renting a car in Dubai is a surprisingly straightforward process. All you need is your passport, your visit visa and your driving license from home. Depending on where you are coming from, you may also need an international driving permit (more on that later).

You must also be 21 years or older, although some supercar companies require you to be over 25 to rent certain cars.

  • Letter from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (valid for at least six months from the date of submission).

5. How much does it cost to rent a car in Dubai? Which car is best for me?


Although there are slight seasonal variations, the cost of renting a car in Dubai starts from AED 69 per day for a basic hatchback. Because it is a year-round tourist hub, the rates are quite competitive, and many companies offer cheaper weekly and monthly plans.

However, more significant variations in pricing can occur depending on the type of car most suited to your needs. Follow our handy guide to determining which car is right for your needs.

1. Economy cars

Compact and budget-friendly basic sedans or hatchbacks, economy cars are the best option for you while staying within city limits. Perfect for independent city explorers, economy cars can usually comfortably accommodate four people and a moderate amount of luggage. These cars also have the additional advantage of consuming less fuel, making them the greenest and cheapest car option available.

  • Weekly rates: AED 450 to AED 2800
  • Monthly rates: AED 1380 to AED 4450

2. SUVs and minivans

If you plan on getting away from the city, an SUV or a minivan is the better choice for you. SUVs have the additional advantage of being perfect for adventurers looking to drive into the desert to enjoy a bit of off-roading. However, both have the luxury of being able to comfortably accommodate up to 7 people and a large amount of luggage, making it perfect for large families or groups going on long road trips.

3. Luxury and sports cars

The UAE's well-known love for fast and expensive cars gives renters the unique opportunity to rent luxury and sports cars that would put a Fast and Furious movie to shame. If you fancy driving a Maserati or a Ferrari for a trip, these Luxury cars are available to rent at relatively reasonable prices.

  • Daily rates: AED 600 to AED 3500
  • Weekly rates: AED 12000 to AED 24000

6. Will car insurance cover my rented car in the UAE?


Yes! UAE law requires car rental companies to provide you with third party liability insurance inclusive of the rental price. Some additional insurances you could get on top of that include:

  • Loss Damage Waiver, which will ensure you are covered if your rental car is stolen or damaged.
  • Personal Effects Cover, which will cover you if your personal belongings are stolen from your rental car.
  • Personal Accident Insurance, which will ensure that your medical costs are covered in case you get into a road accident in your rented car

Several rental companies offer even more insurance options throughout the rental process. You could also check with your bank at home to see if they provide rental car insurances abroad- you could save quite a bit of money if this option is available to you.

If you are considering going off-roading or dune bashing, be warned that while some companies offer insurance for the same, some do not allow you to do so in their rental cars. Check with your rental company first to avoid any unwelcome encounters.

7. What if I can't drive? Could I rent a car with a driver in Dubai?


Renting a car with a driver in the UAE is a great way to get around, and rates are quite competitive, given the high demand for the service. It is even the recommended option for trips to busier tourist sites, as you won't have to bother with the hassle of finding parking.

Given the UAE's diverse nature, chauffeurs in Dubai are multilingual, giving them a professional edge over many of their international counterparts. Being able to communicate with your driver easily means that you could find out about a few spots on the way to your destination that may not exist on most tourist itineraries.

Chauffeured rides are also more straightforward in cost calculation as the prices include both petrol and road tolls, with any extra charges levied on inter-city transfers being clearly stated. There is also the factor of allowing a local to navigate a new city's roads, which provides you with extra safety from fines or road accidents.

As per UAE law, only certain cars can be provided with a chauffeur and are technically classified as 'limos', even though they don't necessarily have to be of the stereotypical stretch limo variety. Like a Toyota Camry, economy cars cannot come with a chauffeur, so most chauffeured cars are either SUVs, people carriers or luxury models like the Lexus ES350 or the Mercedes Sprinter.

  • Daily rate: Starting from AED 600
  • Airport transfers: Starting from AED 200

8. Do I have to pay road tolls if I rent a car in Dubai?


To maintain and expand their excellent road infrastructure, the cities in the UAE do levy tolls using a series of electronic gates.

Every time you go through a toll, you will be automatically charged AED 4 using the Salik tag attached to your windscreen. The rental company places a deposit on your credit card from which the total sum of tolls you incur will be deducted, with the rest being returned to you when you return the vehicle.


Select the ‘avoid tolls’ option on your GPS to find a cheaper route, as there is no cap on how many road tolls you can be charged in a day.

9. How much do I have to pay as a security deposit when I rent a car in Dubai?


As is the industry practice worldwide, you will need to pay a security deposit before you can drive off in your rented car. Although this amount can vary greatly depending on your rental company and the vehicle you're renting, the deposit for a basic sedan is usually around AED 900. If you don't have a chauffeur, any road tolls or fines you incur will be deducted from this deposit, with the remainder being returned to you.

Most companies accept the amount via cash or credit card authorization and will not accept cheques. If you don't have a credit card or don't wish to use it abroad, most companies can give you the option to set up a wire transfer to your bank to refund your cash deposit. Given a choice, though, it is always wiser to pay the deposit using your credit card, not cash, as you can get your money back faster and more hassle-free.

10. When will I get my security deposit back?


Rental car companies often block the deposit amount on your credit card. Since traffic fines sometimes generate several days after the incident is recorded by the Roads and Transport Authority, companies block the deposit amount on a credit card as a safety net for fines incurred on their leased cars while you rented them.

Road tolls and vehicle damages are also recorded a few days by the rental company to be paid by the driver. If there are no fines or deductibles, the blocked amount is released within 14-20 days.

11. How do I pay for my rental car?


Most rental car companies accept all major credit cards, debit cards and cash. Cheques are not usually taken.

12. What are the driving rules in the UAE?


You will be driving on the right side of the road and passing on the left, as is the norm in many countries. This might be something you need to be more aware of if you come from a country that drives on the left, such as Australia or the UK.

Speed limits are always clearly signalled and posted and are generally the same across the country.

Speed Limits



120 km/ph
(minimum of 60 km/ph)

Speed meter

Urban Areas

60 km/ph

Speed meter

Residential Areas

40 km/ph

If you are travelling with small children between 4 and 8 years old, the law requires that they sit in a child car seat in the back. Most car rental companies will provide these car seats at a small additional cost if you don't have your own. Also, note that children under the age of 13 are not allowed to sit in a car's front seat.

The UAE has a zero-tolerance policy towards drinking and driving, requiring drivers to have a blood alcohol content of zero at all times. Driving under the influence will result in hefty fines up to AED 30,000, license suspension, jail time and even deportation.

All cars on the road need to be registered and fully insured, so make sure your rental company provides you with all the necessary paperwork in case you are required to show them.

13. What fines should I watch out for in the UAE? What is the 'black points' system?


To ensure safety, the Road and Transport Authority strictly enforces the road rules using a system of fines and black points.

The black points system in the UAE applies to foreign license and UAE license. These black points are assigned to a driver's license when they violate specific traffic laws- accruing a total of 24 black points will result in you facing your license being revoked or being banned from driving any vehicles for a year.

As mentioned before, any fines you incur are taken out of your security deposit by your rental agency. Offences that you can be penalized for are listed below:

TRAFFIC FINES IN THE UAE: Violation Type - Speeding

14. Do I have to pay for my fuel if I rent a car? How does fuel cost in the UAE?

Although you will be provided with a full tank at pick-up, the standard practise among car rental companies in the UAE means that you will have to pay for additional top-ups and cover fuel expenses.

However, gas is pretty cheap in the UAE, so don't let gas prices deter you. As of March 1st, 2021, the cost of petrol in the UAE stands at AED2.12 per litre for Super98; AED1.91 for Special 95, and AED2.15 for diesel. Make sure to confirm what type of fuel is best for your rental car with your agency.

15. How much does parking cost?


Parking in Dubai is usually divided into two kinds- mall/private parking and public parking.

Being a major attraction in the UAE, Malls usually have paid private parking spaces, which vary significantly in price. Usually, malls allow you to park for around 3-4 hours before charging a parking fee of around AED 20. Many malls around the country also offer free parking on Fridays, Saturdays and public holidays.

The public parking system varies from city to city and zone to zone in the UAE, but in general, the prices are AED 2 per hour, AED 5 for two hours, AED 8 for three hours and AED 10 for 24 hours. You can park for free on Fridays and public holidays, and people with disabilities can always park for free.
