Location information for Dubai

Dubai is one of the world's fastest growing cities. Cloaked in multiculturalism, this desert city was once a mere shadow of its current grandeur. The heat can be stifling at times, but this can be solved by travelling via private car around and outside the city. With plenty of rental options in Dubai, visitors can compare car hire over the internet and find great deals.

Transport

[transport]

Dubai International Airport is only 10 minutes' drive from the downtown area. Most tourists to the UAE arrive through this magnificent airport. Despite its comparatively efficient public transport system, Dubai is predominantly a vehicle-oriented city. Taxis are available but can be dangerous. A safer option is certainly car hire in Dubai.

Car Hire Dubai

Get out of Dubai by taking a road trip to the surrounding Emirates and their cities. Driving is the only choice tourists really have unless they want to pay exorbitant fares and experience wild driving in a taxi. Petrol in Dubai is cheap, so driving a private car is inexpensive. Visitors can find cars available at suppliers like Dollar, Budget and Thrifty.

Driving

In the city, driving can be dangerous. Locals do not follow speed laws or general road rules at all, traffic congestion is rife and parking is difficult to find. However, outside the city of Dubai roads are safe and in excellent condition. Tourists exploring the outer areas of Dubai will find a car rental in Dubai to be extremely convenient.

Things To See and Do

Get away from the city centre and visit the neighbouring metropolis of Sharjah, 10kms east. Jet ski in Khalid Lagoon or explore the Heritage Area while visiting. Umm al Quwain is 30kms northeast of Dubai, and boasts plenty of sites like Dreamland and The Aquarium. Nature lovers should head to Khor al Beidah for spectacular bird watching too.

Best Time To Visit

Extremely hot weather is experienced all year round in Dubai. Heavy tourism hits the city between November and April, as these are the cooler winter months despite temperatures averaging 25°C. Avoid June and July, as temperatures can reach well above 40°C and the high humidity makes venturing outside an uncomfortable experience.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is 121CarHire.com the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
