Car hire Dubai


Dubai is one of the seven United Arab Emirates. In recent years it has grown enormously as a tourist destination, especially for short holidays, to shop, see the modern architecture in Dubai city, ride through the desert, or simply just to relax on the beach.


Dubai has about one and a half million inhabitants. The ratio between men and women is very uneven: approximately 1 million men and half a million women. This is due to the large amount of foreign workers in the country. These are for the most part men from Pakistan, India and Bangladesh, mainly in construction work.


The emirates are located in the east of the Arabic Peninsula on the Persian Gulf. Dubai borders Abu Dhabi and the emirate Sharjah. The exclave Hatta borders Oman. Dubai city lies directly on the Persian Gulf by the mouth of the Khor Dubai, a saltwater creek that runs diagonally through the city. Dubai has an area of more than 4000 km².


Originally, the economy of Dubai was based exclusively on the oil revenues. But because Dubai's oil wealth isn't very large, it steered another course. The construction of skyscrapers and other modern buildings play a major role in the local economy. Furthermore, the emirates live of trade, and is an important center for financial services. Tourism has also increased dramatically: in 2000 the country was visited by 3 million tourists, and in 2010, 10 million tourists are to be expected.


Dubai international airport lies only 4 kilometers from the city center. With a rental car you can reach the airport via the highway D-89 (also called Al Maktoum road, Airport road, or Al Khawaneej road). In 2010 a new airport was opened, Al Maktoum international airport, 35 kilometers southwest of Dubai city. This will be the largest airport in the world and only used by foreign companies. Dubai's national airline, Emirates, continues at Dubai international airport.

Public transportation

Dubai has an excellent network of buses. There is also a night bus network: between the important stops, a bus runs every half hour. There is also a subway line. At the end of 2010, the second subway line is expected to start operating, and a third and fourth are planned. A nice ride is with the abra (a ferry over the creek), even if it's only to see the lovely view of the city.

Traffic and parking

Although Dubai invested enormous amounts in the construction of (high)ways, the extension of the roads do not keep up in pace with the growth of traffic. It is not recommended to go out during rush hours with your rental car: the traffic on the roads around Dubai city stands still. Furthermore, there are four locations in Dubai that demands a road toll. This happens automatically. When returning your rental car, the toll amount is charged to you.


With the growing importance of tourism, there is a wide range of hotels in Dubai. Some are extravagantly luxurious (the best known and most expensive example being the Burj al-Arab), but you can find cheaper and yet good hotel rooms. Real budget hotels are not found in Dubai.

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Hire the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
