Dubai seems to have become the world’s capital of luxury cars and renting one is a must if you want to get the best out of this city. Besides, luxury cars are cheap to rent here, by international standards, so you may as well treat yourself whilst you have a chance.
Here, we shall review the laws you must know and the papers you must have for renting a car and driving in the UAE. We shall also mention the best coupe and sedan models to rent in Dubai to date and suggest how to find the best rental deals for a luxury vehicle in this city.
Price List for Renting Luxury Coupe Cars in Dubai
Most car rentals in Dubai sub-rent the vehicles in their fleet from other agents and charge you a commission for themselves when they rent a car to you. As a result, you pay more than you would if you rented your vehicle directly from its owner.
Fortunately, there are some agencies, like Paddock Car Rental, that own their fleet. They can afford to offer you the best deals in Dubai for that reason. Asking car rental agents whether the cars in their fleet belong to them will help you find a vehicle for the most competitive price on the local market. You can then visit their page on luxury coupe cars to choose the one that you like best.
What You Should Know about Local Traffic Rules
- In the UAE, they use right-hand traffic, and the road signs indicate speed limits in kilometres, not miles.
- Unless indicated otherwise, you should expect the following speed limits here:
- 40 to 60 kilometres per hour in the city
- 100 kilometres per hour on the freeways
- 140 kilometres per hour on the highways
Incidentally, local speed limits for the highways are among the most lenient on the planet, and this is another good reason for renting a powerful vehicle in this country. And some particularly hectic speedways even have a minimum speed limit, most commonly set at 60 kilometres per hour.
- Drunken driving in the UAE is not only illegal but socially unacceptable too. And it makes no difference how much you have drunk. The law does not stipulate a legally permitted alcohol level in your blood, and people find drinking repulsive anyway.
Documents You Need for Driving in the UAE
- Your Passport
Any document that shows that you are 21 or older will do. And since you must also be able to prove that you are legal in the country, your passport will suit both purposes best.
- Your Driver’s
The local traffic police accept international driver’s licenses from numerous countries, and they seem more concerned with your legal status anyway. So, have your passport with you to show them the stamps, and everything will be all right.
- Car Insurance
Having car insurance is obligatory by law in the UAE, and the coverage depends on the car’s model. You can specify the amount with your car rental agency, but AED5K will, most probably, be all right.
