Why you Should Rent a Car as a Foreigner in Dubai?
Renting a car in Dubai as a foreigner can be tricky. If you are from a country where driving is not permitted, you will need a work permit and registration papers for your car. You must have valid UAE insurance, which is mandatory if it falls into the RTA-certified company.
If you have an international license, then you can rent cars in Dubai without any problem. However, if you don’t have an international license or your license doesn’t match the requirements of the country where you live, then things will be more difficult for you.
That’s why we suggest that before renting a car in Dubai that you make sure that there are no problems with your foreign driver’s license. For example, if your license hasn’t been issued by an international organization such as the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), then it won’t be valid in Dubai’s RTA!
Rent a Car for your Travel Benefits
If you are a foreigner in Dubai, then it is advisable to rent a car in Dubai for your travel. There are numerous benefits of renting a car as a foreigner.
The first benefit is that you will not have to worry about traffic or parking issues. If you are traveling in one city, then it is quite easy to find parking places and there are also many public parking lots where you can park your luxury vehicle without any problems. However, if you want to visit more than two cities at a time, then it becomes difficult and almost impossible for you to find good parking spaces.
The second benefit of renting a car in Dubai is that it saves money on fuel bills. If you want to drive around town, then it can cost you up to $150 per day depending on how far and how long your destination is away from your house or hotel room. If you decide not to drive then there are plenty of other options available such as taxis, buses and even trains (if they run on time).
Other Small Benefits:
- You don’t have to worry about parking, traffic and road conditions.
- You can drive anywhere in Dubai, as long as it is not prohibited by the laws of Dubai or UAE.
- You can get a car for any duration of your stay in Dubai.
- Renting a car is much cheaper than buying one and you can use it for an unlimited number of days/weeks/months with no need to return the vehicle at the end of your stay like when renting a house or apartment in Dubai.
