Tips for renting a car in Dubai

Browse helpful tips for renting a car in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates including age restrictions, car type suggestions and more. Tips were last updated on April 23, 2024.
  • Choosing to rent an eco-friendly vehicle, like an electric car, in Dubai offers a notable benefit due to the city's extensive EV charging networks. These networks enable users to access various charging stations using a single account or membership, greatly enhancing the convenience for electric vehicle owners. Moreover, numerous parking facilities in Dubai are equipped with EV charging stations, encouraging EV users to charge their vehicles while they are parked.
  • When renting a car in Dubai, it's essential to be aware of the car seat laws to ensure the safety and compliance of your journey.  In Dubai, children under the age of four must be secured in a suitable child restraint system while traveling in a vehicle. This can be either a child safety seat or a booster seat, depending on the child's age, weight, and height. Children under one year of age or weighing up to 10 kg (22 lb) must be secured in a rear-facing child safety seat. Children between one and four years old, weighing between 10 and 18 kg (22 and 40 lb), should use a forward-facing child safety seat. Children between four and six years old, weighing between 18 and 36 kilograms (40 and 80 lb), can use a booster seat.
  • Dubai has an extensive road network, and some of its major highways are tolled. The tolling system in Dubai is known as "Salik," which means "clear" or "open" in Arabic. There are several toll gates strategically placed on certain roads and bridges across Dubai. The tolling system is fully automated, and there are no physical toll booths. Instead, vehicles are equipped with RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tags, known as Salik tags, which are linked to the driver's account. If you are renting a car in Dubai, the rental company may provide you with a Salik tag. It is essential to check with the rental company if the tag is included or if there are any additional charges for using it.
