2016 has been a year of surprises with the Dubai Water Canal project adding brilliance to the center of Dubai in Business Bay area. Gulf News reported that contribution from non-oil sector increased to 68.8% to UAE’s GDP in 2016. Dubai Garden Glow and Dubai Dinosaur Park too opened in 2016.
In mid December 2016, the Dh13 billion attraction ‘Dubai Parks and Resorts’ was officially inaugurated by His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. Located in Jebel Ali, close to the Expo 2020 site, the mammoth project will feature 6 different theme parks – 3 of which have been launched now after 3 years into construction.
Alongside, Dubai Parks and Resorts, other theme parks including Dubai Zoo and Dubai Crocodile Park will be open to visitors in 2017. Blue Water Island with the Dubai Eye (210m high Ferris Wheel) and La Mer are set to be delivered in 2018.
The world-class attractions, and nobody does it as well as Dubai, are expected to bring in millions of tourists. Experts claim Dubai will witness double its average volume of tourists by late 2017. To serve the growing number of tourists, human resources in the hospitality industry will be on the rise and in-demand.
The latter will contribute to increasing the number of residents which in turn will boost car lease businesses, we believe. Besides, growth in the number of tourists will definitely mean higher day-basis rentals.
The areas around Jebel Ali: Dubai Marina, JLT, Discovery Gardens, Palm Jumeirah, among others, will benefit the most as tourists will largely be staying in these areas. Nonetheless, OneClickDrive.com is poised to make sure that car rental businesses across the UAE are benefited through its always up-to-date, user-friendly website to book rent a car. All we ask our partner agencies is to get back to our customers and fulfill their rental car needs. 2017 is going to be amazing! ?
