Dubai is not just a land of sand dunes. The swanky cars and wide roads make your journey all the more exciting and larger than life. When you are on a holiday, why bother with public transport when you can travel in a luxury car and get a majestic experience. At first, it seems obvious that renting a car in a city like Dubai would cost a fortune as most cars are high-end. However, it is the other way round; renting a car in Dubai makes much more sense than using public transport. Want to know how? Read on!
Taxis may be a little cheaper than other first world countries but would eat up a large chunk of your travel budget. Some of Dubai’s key attractions are spread across the length and breadth of the city. So you’ll be spending quite a bit of money if you want to explore more in little time. The best way to get around Dubai is by driving your own car (or a rental of course). You can rent a car in Dubai on day-basis.
Public transport (i.e. Dubai Metro and RTA buses) does not cover a major section of the city so you might end up shelling out more money than a day’s worth of a rental car’s price to access those areas.
Need to make a trip to Abu Dhabi or Sharjah? Simply rent a car. The route is great with a speed limit of 160 km/hr on the Dubai – Abu Dhabi highway and 120 km/hr on the Dubai – Sharjah highway; besides travelling within the city in your own rental car.
You can rent a car in Dubai based on your budget. You can choose from economy to luxury cars. You can look for amazing car rental deals on the internet. However, you must make sure that you read all the terms and conditions carefully before striking a deal. Eventually, a rental car in your budget would be cheaper than any other mode of transport.
Want to experience off-roading in the dusty dunes? Well, you can always rent a 4×4 SUV but be sure to get enough training if not a qualified desert safari driver.
Besides petrol in the land of sand is way cheaper compared to other parts of the world. Note: The speed limit is subject to the Road and Transport Authority’s (RTA) policies.
