Dubai is a city that almost everyone dreams of visiting. The best way to go there is to rent a car. This will be discussed in our article.
There are many interesting places in the Emirates that you must definitely visit. However, it usually takes a lot of time to collect tourists from hotels, and all sorts of unnecessary shops imposed by travel agencies along the way, instead of devoting more time to the most important thing. For example, the Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi is delivered in only 40 minutes and you need to see everything very quickly. And this is the most important thing in this tour. After renting a car, you can safely park your car in a large free parking lot right under the mosque, and walk, take pictures, and admire this creation for several hours in a row. You can rent a budget, luxury, sports car in Dubai – it all depends on your desires and possibilities.
And the mosque is really grandiose. In addition, at the exit from the parking lot, women can absolutely free of charge (on the security of a document) rent an abaya (traditional black local cape) for rent, and all those who came with a tour by bus do not have such an opportuёnity.
The ability to move independently around the country, to stop at any place you like, for the necessary time – all this is super convenient. You can wake up later, you can stop by on the way to the beach for a swim, and so on. No need to run after the guide, and be afraid to take pictures once again, so as not to lag behind the group. You can rent a luxury car dubai or find a cheaper variant.
In fact, the UAE is not among the countries where the cheapest gasoline is (this is not Venezuela of course) but still, the price of gasoline is very pleasant, especially compared to European countries.
In Dubai, there are quite cultured drivers, there are no road fights, polite and attentive police, as well as very good roads. In general, we can say that there is much more order on the roads than in many other countries. Although a large number of tourists come to the country and they do not always manage to comply with all the rules on the roads, the overall level of comfort remains at a very high level. It is also worth noting that it is almost impossible to meet a drunk driver on the roads since the UAE as a whole is not a drinking country. As for the rules of the road, they are intuitive and it will not be difficult for any driver to understand them very quickly.
There is almost no crime in Dubai. You can drive freely, stop, and leave the car open unattended, no one will take it. However, do not forget that it is necessary to take out insurance for the car.
Many cars are practically new with a mileage of no more than 2000-3000 km, and the condition of the cars is carefully monitored. There are lots of high-perfomance veficles. The excellent quality of highways and ordinary roads also affects the condition of cars. The United Arab Emirates ranked 1st in terms of road infrastructure development in the world in the Global Competitiveness Report (for 2016-2017). And this means that there are the best roads in the world! And every self-respecting driver should try it: driving on such roads is simply a great pleasure.
Most hotels offer free parking for guests. In some, you park the car yourself, and in some, you need to drive the car to the entrance, and a specially trained person will park your car. There are also a lot of convenient free parking lots in Dubai itself (in shopping centers, near beaches, etc.).
These are the main reasons why we recommend travelers in Dubai to choose car rentals. Have a good trip!
