Dubai Int. Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Dubai may be modern and urban, but it’s located in the Arabian Desert, so how about a desert safari? It’s an experience you won’t forget—you’ll even see waterfalls, cliffs, and lakes. Back in the city, enjoy local Emirati food and cuisine from Dubai’s immigrant communities—Indian, Persian, and Lebanese.

Dubai is a great place to visit, but the surrounding region has even more to offer, so why not get a longer-term car rental? Go to nearby Abu Dhabi, another modern Emirate city, explore more of the desert, or, if your car provider allows it, visit neighboring Oman. You can even pick up your car at Dubai Airport and drop it off in a different city. Start planning your adventure now!

Dubai Airport is also known as Matar Dubayy al-Duwali.

It is worth renting a car to be free to travel around UAE, caution with speed limits in Abu Dhabi, Zéro tolerance and radars all over the place. Apparently 20 km/hr limit tolerance in Dubai. Google maps was ok to find your way around.
