When it comes to transportation options while holidaying in the UAE, every veteran will recommend the same thing: get a rental car, do not think twice.
Travelling via rental car is the easiest, not to mention affordable way to get around in UAE. In other, more developed countries, where transport is easy, ubiquitous and accessible, people choose the best option, like the subway or the bus.
Even though Dubai has come a long way in terms of economic progress and tourism development, but the public transport of the city still doesn’t cover a major portion of the city. So travelling via public transport might just end up making your day that more frustrating.
Renting a car in Dubai is the best way to get around the city. A major reason for this is that some of Dubai’s key attractions are spread across the corners of the city. Therefore, travelling through public transport to access those areas will have a heavy toll on your pocket.
The beauty of a rental is that you can get affordable car rentals in Dubai, fitting your budget. You can choose from economy to luxury cars. You can look for competitive car rental deals on the internet. The fact remains that a rental car would be much cheaper than any other mode of transport.
Desert Safari is one of the best experiences that you can get from Dubai…nothing compares to off-roading in the dusty dunes and getting that adrenaline pumping. The 4×4 SUV to get the best of the experience, just make sure to get enough training if you are not a qualified desert safari driver.
In UAE, the price of petrol is also way cheaper compared to other parts of the world. What could be a more compelling argument?
Hiring a rental also makes sense if you plan on making intercity trips in the UAE. Need to make a trip to Abu Dhabi or Sharjah? Simply rent a car instead of relying on air travel. Airfare is way costlier, not to mention that the route is great with a speed limit of 160 km/hr on the Dubai – Abu Dhabi highway and 120 km/hr on the Dubai – Sharjah highway.
Yes, we’re talking about a road trip, which offers additional beauties, such as Mleiha Archaeological Centre, Al Noor Mosque, not to mention the amazing sceneries of the great desert.
