There are few international car rental companies operating in Dubai such as Herts and Budget car rentals. Reliability is the key benefits of using a global rent a car company during your holiday in Dubai. However, the cost can be a bit higher if you if you directly book through them. The best option is to go through an aget. You can save up to 30% with Economy car hire.

Local Dubai car rental companies

Renting a car through a local company in Dubai is cheaper. There are many car rental companies available in Dubai. However,you should be careful of the rent-a-car company. The quality of service is definitely varied from one company to another.

You can get a cheap rate from a local small rent-a-car company. But it is very hard to rely on their service. For an example, they may rent you a very bad vehile, or you may confirm your booking and when you go to collect the vehicle, they might say that vehicles are not available.

My advice is to go for a reliable international rent-a-car company like Economy Rent a Car in Dubai. The other advantage of a large company is the availability. Normally they have offices at Dubai Airport, major hotels in Dubai and special places attracted to visitors. Car hire in Dubai is competitively priced throughout the year so I advise you shop around for the best deal.
