Whatever your preference, avid travelers choose car rental for their trips for a variety of reasons. Apart from making it easy to travel between different destinations in Dubai, car rental makes it easy to plan road trips around the UAE.
Beyond the decision to rent a vehicle from Hype Dubai, it helps to know which specific car model suits your needs, the cost of leasing, and other factors that may hinder the ability to run your business successfully. Below are some important things to consider when renting a car in Dubai.
While most car rental companies have the same vehicles categorized differently, these categories have recently increased. Unlike before, where you had to make simple choices between compact, subcompact, midsize, and sporty vehicles, today’s options include SUVs and luxury vehicles.
Your choice comes down to determining why you need the car. For example, if you have luggage to carry, consider a vehicle with a large trunk. If you have a long trip planned, vehicles with heated seats are perfect. If you need a car, you can sleep inside comfortably or with Sat-Nav, be specific in your choices.
Likewise, if your road trip includes areas with dirt roads or country lanes, a 4X4 is an ideal choice. Luxury vehicles, like the Cadillac, are best for open roads and the beach. They also have enough space for passengers and storage. Executive cars, such as the Audi, BMW, Bentley, Mercedes and other convertibles, are perfect for high profile events and business trips. To enjoy your trip, you need to prioritize comfort and functionality over price and style.
With your vehicle’s needs specified and the perfect size determined, it’s important to understand the specific terms and conditions of the car rental company, especially if you’re booking online. Most car rental companies allow unlimited mileage, but you should double-check to avoid paying more.
You also need to understand the conditions for returning the vehicle. Most agencies want their cars washed and follow the full gas policy. Finally, do not leave the agency’s offices before you have found out if you need complementary insurance. Most rental companies offer basic insurance, but recommend additional insurance depending on driving conditions and level of risk exposure.
Fortunately, you can avoid this by paying for your rental car with a credit card. Credit cards provide extensive coverage for rental cars.
While most car rental companies give a test to determine driver eligibility, it does not prove that someone can operate the vehicle safely. If you are familiar with a two-seater compact vehicle, switching to an SUV or a public transport vehicle becomes difficult. As a general rule, choose a vehicle that is no different in size and style from yours.
Not all rental cars are suitable for your travel plans. You’ll find the best cars for city breaks, adventure vacations, family vacations, multi-location vacations, and honeymooners. Whatever the nature of your vacation, booking the vehicle in advance gives the agency enough time to find a model that suits your needs.
