How to Rent a Car in Dubai Airport

How to Rent a Car in Dubai Airport
If you’re flying into Dubai International Airport, there are a few things you need to know before arriving. First, make sure to have your passport and visa ready. Second, car rentals in Dubai can be pricey, so it’s important to compare rates before you arrive. And finally, don’t forget to plan your trip in advance—there is limited availability of cars at the airport during busy times. In short, here are a few tips on how to rent a car in Dubai airport:

What to expect when renting a car in Dubai Airport

If you're departing from Dubai International Airport, you'll need to find a rental car company that has a booth in the airport.

Once you've found a car company, it's time to fill out some paperwork. You'll need your passport and driver's license. The car company will also ask for your credit card information so that they can charge the rental fee to it. The rental fee will range from AED250-AED500 per day, and there is often an additional processing fee of AED50-100 added on top of that.

If you're arriving in Dubai from another destination, the process is slightly different. When arriving in Dubai by air, you will first arrive at Dubai International Airport and then take a free shuttle bus to the parking lot outside of the airport terminal where all of the rental cars are located. After finding a car, simply drive your vehicle to Terminal 2 where you will be able to leave your car and proceed through customs and check-in without having to go back outside into the hot sun!

The different types of cars available for rent

There are three main types of cars available for rent at Dubai Airport: sedans, SUVs and vans. Sedans can accommodate up to five people, while SUVs and vans can seat up to eight people. All cars come with a driver.

The best way to find the right car for your needs is to first look at the dimensions of the vehicle. You'll need to know the length, width and height of the car so that you can compare it to what you're looking for. Once you've narrowed down your options, you'll need to decide which type of car will best suit your needs.

Sedan cars typically cost less than SUVs or vans, but they don't offer as much space. If you only plan on using the car for short trips, a sedan might be a good option. SUV and van rental companies usually have a wider variety of options, so if you plan on driving around for a longer period of time or carrying more people, one of these vehicles would be better suited for you.

How to reserve a car

If you're looking to travel around Dubai, renting a car is the best way to go. There are several rental companies located at the Dubai International Airport, and each has different rates and requirements.

The first thing you need to do is find out what type of vehicle you'll need. Cars come in four types: small, medium, large, and extra-large. Next, find out how much it will cost to rent a car for a specific length of time. Finally, make a reservation.
What to do if your car is not available when you arrive
If you have booked your rental car through a third-party rental company and you are arriving in Dubai from outside of the city, your vehicle may not be available when you arrive. In this case, there are several things you can do to get around this problem:
  1. Call your rental company as soon as you reach Dubai airport to let them know that you have arrived and ask them to release your car.
  2. Try contacting the RTA customer service center at 03-5559 9996 or via their website at and asking them to release the car for you.
  3. If all else fails, try calling one of the local taxi companies and booking a ride into town.

Tips for driving in Dubai

When renting a car in Dubai, be sure to read the terms and conditions of your rental agreement carefully. Many companies will require you to return the car at the same time, even if you're only staying in Dubai for a short period of time. You may also want to consider using an online rental service, as these tend to be cheaper than traditional rental companies.


Whether you're coming in for a day or staying for a few weeks, renting a car is the best way to get around Dubai. With so many places to explore and so much to see, having your own vehicle will make life that much easier.
