KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Abu Dhabi

  • If anywhere is a car country, the United Arab Emirates is. If you want to take in the beautiful desert expanse, there simply is no better way than in your own vehicle. Also, there is often no public transport options available to take you to some of Abu Dhabi’s most famous sites like the Emirates Palace.
  • Need to pick up your hire car after arriving in Abu Dhabi? Travelers with flights landing at Abu Dhabi International Airport will find the car hire counters in the Skypark Plaza just across from Terminal 3 and just a few minutes’ walking distance from Terminals 1 and 2.
  • Headlight flashing is a common occurrence on many of the faster streets and highways in Abu Dhabi and, for drivers from other countries, this may be confusing at first. When you see a pair of flashing headlights that means the driver is trying to signal you to move out of the lane so they can go by. This can be avoided by sticking to slower lanes of the highway if you don’t want to drive the maximum allowed speed.
  • Traffic in Abu Dhabi is not an overly strenuous affair, so visiting drivers shouldn’t worry about it too much. However, rush hour does pick up in the morning at around 6:00 a.m. and lasts until 9:00 a.m. In the afternoon it builds up again by about 4:00 p.m. and cools down by around 6:00 p.m. The bulk of the congestion occurs on Highways E11 and E12, as they connect to the city.
  • Book your rental car in Abu Dhabi at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Abu Dhabi are around 154% more expensive than airport locations on average

It was an excellent experience. The staff was so helpful and friendly. The car was in a very good condition. It was a great value for the money paid. Thanks to Kayak, ACE and Shift Teams. Special thanks to Mr Syed Amer who made the pick up and drop off experience very quick and pleasant.

Pros:

Not much. The staff at the second location I had to take a taxi to in order to find my rental car was moldy understanding that the other office was atrocious in the way they dealt with me as a customer

Cons:

I was forced to take a taxi to multiple location after I called a number on a locked door at 1200pm at the first location and was told by an employee that he didn’t plan on coming that day and I should find another europcar location in Abu Dhabi. Terrible customer service and cost me more money to travel to another location that did not have available cars as the person on the phone had promised. Overall the pick up process was over 2.5 hours.

Cons:

Dollar Rent A Car did NOT honor my reservation. They claimed that I should have received a cancellation notice, yet, over 90 minutes AFTER my scheduled pickup time, my booking status remained "confirmed" in your system. This is outrageous. You have wasted both my time and my money. I will require an immediate refund of whatever charges you have made to my credit card as well as a credit for AED 120 in order to refund wasted taxi fares to and from the airport. I could not be me more disappointed in your service or lack thereof. I would recommend that you not disappoint me further by ignoring this demand. Sincerely, Matthew Sumner

It was the worst experience renting a car. First, the advertised price is a scam anfter adding insurance, the price doubles. I booked a standard car, only to discover that it is a Chinese car, which I do not prefer to drive, and there are no other options. Third, the down payment amount which is 2000 AED which is the highest among the companies. Especially since the car is not a luxury class. Fourthly, and most importantly, they refused to hand me the car because the credit card is in my wife’s name, despite me entering the PIN and using the same card to rent a car from them previously, and they told we will cancel the booking for free and refund your money which didn’t happen till now, they cost me 120 AED to take a taxi back and forth.

Not much. Easier than renting from DXB, but that's really more of a credit to Abu Dhabi's airport than anything Avis.

Cons:

They called a hatchback an "SUV". It was tiny and had over 30K km on it so it didn't drive very well. Additionally at drop off the traffic made me 30 mins late and they charged me a FULL day! Not even an hourly rate or anything. Absurd. Customer service was very poor both at pickup & dropoff. Never again Avis, never again.

Cons:

Changed the dropoff point and asked us to drop it three hours before what the paid one was because they closed early that day!? And they didn't know that before and we still had to pay full??? Plus they charged us with extra cleaning only because there was a little sand from the beach from the kids - taking the matt out and done, but no, we had to pay and extra 50 $! And the overall costs are a joke, they make a good price on paper but in the end you pay more than anywhere else - don't book there!!

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

I was informed at the counter on pick up that I need to put down a $500 hold on my CC to cover possible "traffic fines". Cancelled immediately. Be aware when renting cars in the UAE with Budget.

Pros:

Convenience for picking up and dropping off vehicle at airport.

Cons:

The whole experience was terrible!!! :( First, when I arrived, he told me he does not have a seven seater available became they were fully booked and will have to give me a smaller car. I refused and I showed him my reservation which was made months in advance, he then said he will see what he can down. Twenty minutes later, the other guy came back from the lot and said he will upgrade me to a Mercedes-Benz Vito (which I booked in the first place). Then, he tried to up-sell me insurance when I clearly told him that I am not interested and that I have already purchased it. He then said that my insurance does not cover everything (without even looking at what coverage I had) and try to further sell me insurance. The associate than became arrogant and rude when I refused to buy insurance (so he could make commission off me by forcing it down my throat). When we went to the car lot, they gave a very high mileage Vito and a ton of scratches and dents. I had to take several photos and a video of the damage to make sure he does not charge me when I return to vehicle. He very furious about this and told me not to worry, that he had made all the notes of the damage (but who can trust this man). I asked him how to open the trunk; he said he does not know, he did not even try to help me. He gave also me a ticket and said when I returned the vehicle I will need the ticket to get back into the lot. However, once we exited the lot, the machine takes the ticket and opens the boom gate, it does not return it. After driving for approximately 30 minutes, the service light came on. In addition, throughout the trip, the engine sounded like an airplane taking off, I don’t know when last Budget Car Rentals serviced this vehicle. I don’t know where Budget employees these sort of people and how they train them. Next time, I will go with EUROPCAR or AVIS or any other car rental company that appreciates my money and treats me like a customer. I will also inform everyone I know about my unpleasant experience and inform them to use another company!

They never rented the car to us! They wanted $200 as drop fee. That price was never mentioned during booking and neither was it in the confirmation email. I had booked it specifically for pick up in Abudhabi and drop off in Dubai. Wasted time and very aggravating to not have correct cost communicated upfront

Out of the way, lots of up-charges, and little customer service. There is an unmentioned credit-card deposit that was supposed to be returned in two weeks (no reason given for the excessive length of time), but I had to call to have it returned. Car was fine, but I won’t use Payless again.
