If you’re sick of the delay causing and uncomfortable public transport in the city of Dubai, you might be thinking of getting a vehicle from some car rental service but slow down. Let’s sit back and look at the things you should consider before going into it.
Consider your budget
Always choose a car that is giving away the most in less budget. Suppose your budget is around 3000 AED and you want to rent a car for a month from car rental service. Now you should be looking for a car whose rent is up to 3K. Other than the rent, you also must pay a security fee that is for the incase damages those are not covered by the insurance. This security fee is majorly a slight more than the actual rent. So always consider the vehicle whose rent can be covered by your budget as well as the security charges.
Know what you need
You should know what are you looking for. If you’re choosing to get a car on rent in some emergency, choose the best model. But what worth considering is to know what things you need in the car. Size of car; which eventual means the number of persons than can sit in the vehicle. If you’re getting a car for the family, you should choose a bigger one. If you’re travelling alone, a normal car would do. Also, what room of luggage do you want and the special features like Bluetooth, charging, reverse camera and GPS.
Meet the requirements
You need to meet the requirements of documents, which a car rental service is provided.
- For residents of Dubai and UAE, the documents needed a UAE residential visa, passport, driving license and identity card.
- For tourists the requirements are an international driving license, passport and visit visa
- Note: you only need to provide the copies of above mentioned documents
Look for insurance
See if the service is insured. Most of the rental services are comprehensively insured and they cover the damages other that natural weather damage, animals and pets damage, stone or object falling damage and accidents; you need to pay security charges for these damages prior to they happen. Security charges are paid back as is it if the car remains unharmed.
Look for mileage limit
Most of the cars are rented with unlimited mileage. You can check the mileage limit of your car over the website of the service. If you are a hardcore traveler you’d probably be looking for a car with unlimited mileage yet if you’re not going to use the car that often, you can go with limited mileage which comes with less price.
Delivery and order cancellation
Most of the services offer free delivery for you. They can deliver the car, once booked, at your preferred place; would it be the airport or your hotel. Also, free cancellation of order is available in some cases so that you can cancel the order, if you changed your mind.
