The thrill of Dubai is best-experienced in a luxury car
Dubai is the most-visited destination in the Middle East and a world-renowned commercial, cultural, and business center. It is home to a diverse range of communities from all areas of the world, and, of course, the native Emirati population. Many people visit Dubai for its year-round sunshine, plus the huge abundance of shops, restaurants, theatres, great beaches, and exciting nightlife.
As a city with many high-net-worth individuals, it is known globally for its luxurious lifestyle, impressive gleaming glass skyscrapers, and abundance of exotic cars that can be regularly seen traversing the many highways. The city provides a luxurious experience at every turn, from world-leading hotels with high-end dining and concierge services, to top business conferences and superyachts in the marina.
Driving a car is the best way to experience all this exciting city has to offer. Especially if the car chosen for hire is a luxury car or high-end model. The thrill and excitement of cruising down the highways with the roof down, wind in the hair, and year-round sunshine make the city a dream for motorists. Few destinations in the world are as thrilling to drive in.
Choosing a luxury car to rent gives travelers a taste of Dubai’s high-life for a set length of time. It is an unforgettable experience that clients will want to try again and again. Cruising down the city’s main streets in a luxury vehicle gives the experience of being super wealthy - something very few get to enjoy despite the large amount of high-net-worth people residing in the town.
Even visitors on a low budget can rent
For clients on a low budget, our car rental company provides a comprehensive roundup of economy cars from many of the globe’s most trusted brands. Economy vehicles are ideal for leisure travelers or for business visitors who want to save money while still getting a comfortable, reliable hire car for use on their trip. We strive to meet the needs of all our clients and always aim for 100% customer satisfaction. It is our company’s mission to ensure all clients are happy and satisfied with our professionalism and overall service. We are enthusiastic to serve our loyal customer base.
Dubai is a wonderland for business and leisure travelers
Across the city, there are countless things to see and do. The must-see attraction on the top of most people’s list is the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, set in the middle of the Downtown area. But there are tons of other things to experience for all types of visitors, whether traveling on business or for recreational purposes.
One such example is the Dubai Mall, with hundreds of stores and restaurants to satisfy even the most discerning of tastes. The marina is another impressive and picturesque location, as are the city’s many beaches - a wonderland for sun-seekers and watersports enthusiasts. The fountain at the mall is also recommended for visitors who want great photo opportunities (especially once the sun sets!).
A world-renowned destination for high-end hotels
Dubai is home to countless fine hotels, many of which are 4-star and 5-star. The city is home to the “unofficially-rated” 7-star hotel, the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, which has a helicopter pad on the roof to accommodate wealthy residents. Despite the abundance of fine hotels in the city, people on a lower budget can also find affordable accommodation. There is no shortage of somewhere to stay with so many global brand hotels, boutique hotels, and self-catering residential apartments.
Driving in an exotic car from the airport to a luxury hotel provides outstanding comfort, satisfaction, and thrill. Especially in the modern areas of the city. But for travelers who enjoy exploring the local culture, the wider UAE has many fine examples of historical architecture. Visitors can also visit more traditional Arabic shopping experiences - the Gold Souk being a great and popular example.
Stunning locations and plenty of choice for culture
The stunning Jumeirah Mosque is another must-see destination for anyone who enjoys traditional Arabic culture. It is open to non-Muslims and is among the most impressive mosques in the United Arab Emirates. The mosque features impressive Middle Eastern architecture and is a fine example of modern yet classic design.
The UAE is home to other exciting destinations, including Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, and Ras Al Khaimah. Abu Dhabi is well-worth spending some time visiting and has plenty of cultural hotspots, including fantastic beaches for relaxing in the sunshine. The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Center in Abu Dhabi is a truly amazing spectacle to behold and is highly recommended when visiting Abu Dhabi.
Rental motors come in many different flavors
At Evolve, our company website allows visitors to search for a rental vehicle in a speedy, efficient manner. But there are many different types of motors arranged by category. Customers can rent a luxury car in Dubai or take advantage of many other models, such as exotic cars and sports cars. Below, we describe the characteristics of each car category and what the user can expect:
Luxury motors are typically cars that provide a higher level of refinement in comparison to economy cars. They will have a plush interior and many added extras, such as seat heating and massage functionality. The car may also have in-built entertainment, such as TV screens, satellite navigation, and digital radio capabilities. Luxury cars often drive incredibly smoothly and have fantastic safety credentials.
Despite their comfort, luxury motors also boast great performance and acceleration. Business travelers often select a luxury model for their all-around efficiency and also for the professional image they portray when visiting clients and attending meetings. They are the perfect choice for when image is everything.
The term ‘exotic car’ describes any vehicle that is outside of the norm. This can often relate to other car category types as well, such as supercars, which are invariably ‘exotic’ by definition. These cars will attract the most attention from passers-by and other motorists. This is especially the case when an exotic car is parked on the road. People may stop to look at and take photographs of the car. Having said that, with so many exotic motors in Dubai, clients will be in good company all across the city.
The term ‘supercar’ is well-known and needs little explanation. Put simply, they are road cars that have the highest possible levels of styling and performance. Typical examples of supercars include the Lamborghini Huracan, the Ferrari 488 Spider, and the McLaren 570S. Supercars are among the most expensive cars available to rent on Evolve, unsurprisingly due to their hugely costly price tag to buy outright.
The term ‘sports car’ is a generalized term to describe a car that has precise handling, fast acceleration, and a streamlined appearance. They are available in two and four-seat configurations and come as either a coupe or convertible (open top roof). Sports cars can also feature front-wheel or rear-wheel drive.
Very few sports cars have 4x4 traction, but it is possible to find some models. Some examples of popular sports cars include the Porsche Boxster 718, the Audi R8 Spyder, and the BMW 430i. They are popular and great fun to drive.
Rent a luxury car in Dubai for business and leisure use
A luxury car rental service, such as provided by our company, gives people the time and opportunity to experience Dubai and the wider UAE without the need to hire taxis or use busy public transport. For travelers visiting Dubai who want to get around as easily as possible, car hire enables the swift travel from location to location in complete comfort and luxury. It is a great option for leisure travelers who want to visit many of Dubai’s cultural and entertainment hotspots or travel in the evening to attend parties or other events.
Business people benefit from a professional image
For business travelers, a luxury option gives clients the appearance of great wealth and success, especially if a high-end car is selected, such as a Bentley, Rolls-Royce, or one of the various supercars we have available. Many business people require the use of a rental car when traveling to meetings and conferences, or to and from the airport. When a professional image is vital, luxury models ensure clients make a positive first impression to help them secure that all-important contract.
Travel to and from the airport in style and comfort
Car rental is also one of the best options for traveling to and from the airport. Although taxis and public transport are available, these options can be unpredictable at times, and unviable if large amounts of luggage need to be carried. Public transport does not offer a door-to-door service, unlike professional car hire. Neither does it give the opportunity to drive to any destination, park up, and explore Dubai’s sights and sounds at an affordable price. It is this reason why car hire services are the smartest, most convenient, and comfortable way to travel around the city.
Renting a luxury car is a quick and easy process
Renting a luxury motor is relatively straightforward, especially if rented via our Evolve website. The process from start to finish should take minutes, after which the client will receive confirmation of the order. The process works as follows: first, browse through our extensive listings of cars and compare the different models to find a suitable brand, style, price, and any other required features. Once a car has been selected, it can be reserved at the click of a button.
There is an opportunity for the client to add additional details to ensure their trip goes ahead as smoothly as possible. This can include where they would like the car to be delivered to (e.g. the airport), the time and date, etc. After the reservation has been accepted, a confirmation will be sent. Our customer service representatives are available at Evolve car rental company and on-call should any assistance be required. Further details will be sent once the rental date approaches.
Fuel is the responsibility of the vehicle renter
Clients who rent a motor at Evolve will need to ensure the tank is topped up with fuel throughout the rental agreement. Although the motor will be delivered with a certain amount of fuel, it may not be enough to fulfill the intended journey. There are many filling stations and garages in the city and renters are advised to keep the tank topped up to prevent breakdowns and the cost of motor recovery. Running with insufficient amounts of fuel can lead to a lack of performance and may damage the engine. Therefore, it is paramount that clients monitor the fuel gauge closely and tops up should the need arise.
Mileage limits and other considerations
When a customer rents a motor at Evolve, the rental agreement will outline a mileage limit. This limit is included in the total cost of the rental. For clients who require flexible mileage, this can be arranged by contacting our customer service representatives. People renting on a monthly basis will no doubt require more mileage than people renting for the day. Going over the mileage limit will usually incur additional costs, payable at the end of the rental agreement.
Car rental is still possible during Ramadan
During Ramadan, fasting occurs among the city’s Muslim population. There are certain restrictions in the UAE during this time. Eating and drinking in public are forbidden throughout the Ramadan period. However, non-muslim hotel guests can use dining services that are sectioned off behind curtains. Luxury car hire is also still possible in the vast majority of cases.
Motor hire prices can be cheaper due to many businesses running special offers to coincide with Ramadan. Demand for certain models of cars may be higher during Ramadan because many tourists visit from nearby countries, such as Oman, Saudi Arabia, and Kuwait. There are often excellent deals to be had in other stores and outlets as well, so be sure to keep an eye out for those.
Hire a luxury car on a monthly basis for great flexibility
Hiring a luxury motor on a monthly basis with our car rental company gives clients fantastic flexibility to explore Dubai and the wider UAE - without rush or fear of late return. Longer-term car hire pricing is very affordable, and for people looking to hire a car on a low budget, economy models ensure great value. For those who want to spend a little more and experience a luxurious lifestyle, supercars and other luxury models like Rolls-Royce, Porsche, Lamborghini, and Ferrari are available.
Although car rental on a daily basis is popular with visitors who need a car for driving to and from the airport, or for attending a business meeting, a monthly package works out cheaper for clients who need to stay in the city over many weeks. When comparing the cost and convenience of public transport and taxis, luxury car hire on a monthly basis is a great value. Both business and leisure travelers can take advantage of the superb monthly rental packages at Evolve.
Things to remember when renting a luxury car in Dubai
There are a number of things to remember when renting a luxury car. The first is that the city has a fast, wide road network, especially on the main arteries. While this ensures efficient and speedy movement of traffic to all areas of the city within 20 to 30 minutes, it can feel daunting to some travelers. However, most people soon get used to driving within the day.
It is beneficial to keep inside the speed limits and be aware of local traffic laws, otherwise, clients may find themselves on the end of fines. It is important to only park in designated areas to avoid parking fines. Most streets where parking is available will have parking meters, so use these to avoid any unnecessary charges. Drinking and driving are illegal and will result in serious fines (and probably jail).
It is also important to be aware that some rental cars will have automatic transmission and others will have a manual (stick shift). The huge selection of cars available on Evolve means that the driving characteristics will differ, with a number of cars being exceptionally fast to accelerate. In fact, some supercars have paddle shift gear control, which may take a little while to get accustomed to.
Besides the intricacies of the different rental cars available, travelers from outside the UAE with no residency permit must produce a passport, valid home country driver’s license, and visa entry documentation. The majority of home country driving licenses are accepted so long as the renter is aged 21 years and above.
How to best prepare for a trip to Dubai
Like traveling abroad to any destination, taking time to adequately prepare ensures things go as smoothly as possible once on location. It goes without saying but all travelers need to ensure they have their passport, valid driving license, and visa documentation. All these documents are necessary for non UAE residents wishing to rent a luxury car in Dubai. Travelers should also ensure they bring their credit card(s) and money in cash in the event some retailers do not accept cards (but most will).
As a city in an especially hot climate, the sun can be highly dangerous, especially at peak times of the day (1 pm to 5 pm). Taking time to consider adequate clothing is essential. Sunglasses, sun lotion, and a hat offer protection from the sun. But travelers may also need a wide variety of clothing types, including casual and more formal attire, depending on the type of trip. Be aware that Dubai has laws against immodest dressing in public areas, so consider this when packing.
When looking to rent a sports car or other model, it makes sense to get familiar with the layout of the city before travel. Getting a feel for the road network and location of key destinations helps travelers to get to grips with a large city of over 3 million people. Google Maps is a great resource to get up to speed with the layout. Some rental cars will come with satellite navigation in-built as standard. In many cases, detailed knowledge will not be required, but it always helps to have a basic understanding.
Driving in Dubai requires the use of Salik gates
There is a road toll system in Dubai called Salik. This system automatically charges drivers who pass the toll gate, or fines drivers who have no prepayment. What originally began as two gates has since expanded to encompass eight: Al Garhoud Bridge, Al Safa, Al Maktoum, Jebel Ali, Al Barsha, Al Mamzar North and South, and Airport Tunnel.
Car hire drivers who wish to travel to areas in Dubai will at some point need to cross a Salik gate in order to reach their destination. The cost to travel across a Salik gate is AED 4. Drivers can purchase a tag online and recharge as necessary. Please be aware that Al Maktoum is free from 10 pm Thursday to 6 am Saturday. A map of toll crossings is available at the Salik website.
Stay safe and try to avoid any traffic violations
Traffic violations are dealt with by the local police and often involve fines and blacklist points. In some cases, the right to drive can be completely revoked. So it makes sense to follow the rules to stay within the law. Minor traffic violations generate smaller fines than extremely dangerous violations, which involve large fines and can lead to imprisonment in some cases.
Motorists who skip traffic lights are typically fined AED 1,000 and gain 12 penalty points. Using mobile phones or other handheld devices will incur an AED 400 fine and four points. Speeding can incur a fine of AED 3,000 and 23 points. So drivers are advised to adhere to traffic instructions and speeds at all times.
Other infringements, such as driving a loud motor, throwing items out of the window, having unsafe tires, and overtaking on the hard shoulder, will also generate a fine. All passengers must ensure they wear a seatbelt when the car is moving. AED 400 is the fine for failing to use a seatbelt.
Anyone using the front passenger seat should be older than 10 and above 145cm tall. These common-sense requirements help to ensure the safety of the driver, passengers, and all other road users.
Put simply: reckless driving is highly likely to incur a fine and some level of blacklist points. In some cases, drivers can be jailed. So car rental clients must ensure they follow traffic instructions and drive carefully without speeding or causing harm to others. That said, most visitors who rent an SUV or car have no issue with traffic violations. But it is still important to be aware of the basics. This way, hire car rental clients to ensure the best possible experience when traveling around the city.
Life, health, and car insurance considerations for car rental
When looking to rent a luxury car in Dubai, clients have the option to take out life and health insurance. This is recommended because, in the event of an accident, clients will not be liable to pay for any expenses when using medical facilities in the UAE. It is standard practice to take out travel insurance when visiting Dubai, but enhanced insurance packages are well-worth considering, including health and life insurance.
Car insurance is a legal requirement and is available as standard with all rental cars listed on Evolve. Basic insurance comes as standard and this protects the driver from accidents caused by third parties. But it does not cover accidents caused by the driver. A Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) is available and ensures the driver does not have to pay for repair work should an accident occur.
Restrictions for off-road driving
While the UAE is highly regarded for its off-road driving, and while SUVs have the capability for off-road use, we do not permit car renters to engage in this activity. The reason is simple: off-road driving places a lot more stress on the car than standard road driving, and there is more chance of tires wearing faster, the suspension getting worn, and more potential damage to the paintwork and engine components.
We want all our clients to enjoy great performance and safety, which is why off-roading is not permitted with any rental car listed on Evolve. Despite this, there are a number of excellent companies in Dubai that will cater to off-roading. Quad biking, in particular, is very popular and thrilling experience on the sand dunes out of town.
Documents that are required for car rental in Dubai
Visitors to Dubai require a number of documents in order to rent a prestige car in Dubai. UAE nationals and residents require an Emirates ID and a valid driver’s license. But foreign visitors need to show a valid passport, visa entry documentation, and a recognized home country driver’s license. Most foreign driving licenses are accepted, as long as the additional documentation is provided.
It is worth noting that the minimum legal age to rent a car in the UAE is 21 years. This is the same for UAE nationals and international visitors. In a few cases, car rental companies have a requirement of 23 years - or even 25 years - on some models of car. So ensure all the documentation is intact prior to travel. This way, there will be no surprises.
Dubai has many car parks - but be careful to avoid fines
Parking areas in Dubai are separated into three categories: commercial, non-commercial, and "special areas". There are many areas to park all across the city, but some of them require a form of payment. Many side streets accept parking and will feature car parking meters.
Specialist car parks may also require payment for a set length of time. Most commercial malls, especially the larger ones like Dubai Mall, offer free car parking. Mall of the Emirates has free parking on the busy days of Friday and Saturday.
For travelers who are driving from the airport to a hotel, valet parking is often available. This is particularly the case with luxury hotels. All travelers should take notice of parking signs at all times. Fines for overstaying or parking incorrectly can land a heavy fine. So always check twice before leaving the vehicle.
