One of the worst experience , very bad car ,nissan sunny and no screen to connect with phone(very important to use navigator and I don't believe there is still some car with no screen , pick up the car from terminal 3 and I took an hour to get the documents and also I asked to drop the car at terminal 2 , she said we don't have a counter at terminal 2 , you have to drop the car at terminal 3 and take a taxi to T2 , later one I realized there is a counter at terminal 2 but it's funny the open from 1pm to 5 pm anyone else come before and after this time has to go to T1 or T3

Drop off experience was a nightmare, Abel took 30 min to do the check out, he inspected the car from the bottom to the top like he was going to buy this car from me, his extremely slow pace was really frustrating when you have a flight to catch and you on the run!

Payment flexibility needs to be considered I landed at 10 pm was completely done with all process including PCR In less than 30 mins while arrived home around 1:30 am, due to the no cash policy payment, and they didn’t allow me To use my husband’s card? I had to communicate with my Bank to seek extra approval on amount blocking, yet I extended my stay they didn’t offer me a better rate. Plus no one escorted me to the vehicles pickup area I had to look for it and ask so many people moving around outside the airport in Dubai super hot humid weather with my luggage because the handover office had no signage. And the car was not washed & not Kia Sportage. How would you rate it ? If you were in my shoes?All the above should be re-considered. To the fact that I was paying 120$ per day Experience should be different.

The pickup took around an hour, including redoing virtually everything in my online purchase and signing all new contracts, after I believed I had already signed and paid for everything. Also I was told that the insurance I purchased from Kayak did not cover a bunch of things and that I needed a different credit card to secure a large deposit to cover potential damages not covered by that insurance.

Was left carlessNothing unfortunatelyI went there with all the necessary documents. After some time waiting, they informed me that they didn't have the car I rented, nor any other car in the upgrade. Even though I have reserved the car way before AND paid for it AND called to confirm a day before, they did not have the car... I still didn't receive my refund by the way. They did offer a downgrade, but I couldn't send back home one of my kids with two bags!

Alamo failed to clearly communicate that they do NOT have a pick-up/drop-off desk in Terminal 2! Although the reservation said that it was "Airport Pickup," and the fine print DID say they had desks in T1 and T3, it did not give sufficient heads up that T2 is very far from T1 and T3, and there is no airport shuttle, and no way to walk there from T2. This meant we had to walk around for 30-45 min figuring out what to do, and in the end, we had to book an airport taxi (with its expensive airport fee) BOTH for pick-up AND drop-off, which added to our expenses and even worse, added to our inconvenience and time. When I told the staff, they were very apologetic, but they were unable to help offer us a ride and did not take much responsibility at all.

Great customer serviceI felt welcomed, and though I have heard over the years horror stories of renting cars abroad, my experience with Dollar at Dubai airport was excellent.Returning the car, it wasn't clear where to park (unlike in every US airport, there's no obvious 'rental return' lot. I had to find a parking spot in close proximity to the office - but that is just Dubai normal. I just wish it was made clearer.

Europcar is a scamNothingWe booked and had a confirmation email with the price for the rental for 8 days. When we arrived the person at the desk had all our reservation information but said the price was 4 times what our email said. When we showed him the confirmation stating the vehicle and the price, he said “I cannot do that price, this is my best price” and the amount was four times our confirmed reservation amount. We have since checked back to see if we misunderstood the email but no, they just offer one price online and then when you get there adjust the price and will not honor the confirmation from online. The worst part is when this was happening the guy behind us in line said “oh yeah they do that all the time, every time I rent with europcar they charge way more than when you originally book, it’s a huge scam” he said the only reason he uses them is because it is a company card so not his money. I would NEVER use them again. We had to scramble to find another company last minute and got a car from them for a more reasonable rate.
2.0 Mediocre6 Apr 2018
Be very careful of the currency when you book your vehicle.I booked the vehicle in AED(local currency in Dubai) and I have an email confirmation for this, but when I got to the rental desk I was told the amount would need to be paid in dollars. So the reservation turned out almost 4 times the amount. Even though I had an email confirmation with the currency clearly written in AED, they would not honor it. They already had the slowest and most pathetic service I’ve ever experienced in my life, so I went ahead and just paid the amount to save my time. I highly would not recommend this company.

Car of DeathThat my family was safe after vehicle malfunctionedThis branch Terminal 2 offered me a vehicle with poor maintenance. My family and I could have died on the highway when it malfunctioned. The staff couldnt care less about our situation and Mangosh even told me that ‘this is the Emirates, we are different, we dont offer the services you are asking for’. The team was deceitful and rude. I reported this branch to consumer protection services. If you dont want to die, avoid renting. I’ve contacted my credit card company to dispute payment to them. Kayak should not promote them.

They tried to charge me an extra 50 USD just to drop off in AD when it was clearly included in the original booking, then they added 50 AED for airport pickup when again, the booking was originally front the airport. Basically a load of hidden fees. Borderline scam. And the car was a bit old and dirty.

Rental agency branch did not existWe arrived at DXB to find that the rental agency Payless no longer existed at DXB. The phone number provided by the booking service is not in service. We were stranded and our only options were to take taxis or book expensive last minute car rentals on the spot. We opted for taxis and public transportation as the other rental options were too expensive. We were surprised and let down. I know now not to rely on Kayak.

Top tips for renting a car at Dubai Intl Airport

  • Car hire at Dubai Intl Airport (DXB) is a convenient option when leaving the airport as you will be able to drive in comfort with air-conditioning and avoid the crowded public transport services with your luggage. It will also give you the freedom and flexibility of exploring Dubai city and other outlying areas, without having to negotiate other transport options, which may be limited in some areas.
  • At just under 3 miles from Dubai Airport, you can easily reach the centre of Dubai with your hire car by the Airport Road, the D89. Follow the signs out of the airport to the E11 and then merge onto the Sheikh Rashid Road still on the E11 to get you into the city centre in less than 10min. The E11 motorway will also connect you to other locations and to Abu Dhabi in around 1h 30min. It is worth considering accommodation with parking in the city, however, you can find roadside parking and parking lots available. Remember to park in Zone C or D of the city, which are areas reserved for non-commercial vehicles.
  • Be mindful of rush hour times in the morning and evenings around Dubai’s roads, which can get very congested, especially along the airport access roads. Busy times tend to fall between 06:30-08:30 in the morning and again at 17:30-20:00 in the evenings. Make sure to give yourself plenty of time for your return journey. The best day to travel in Dubai is on a Friday when the roads are quieter. There is a refuelling station at the airport, and you can also find an Emarat fuel station on Damascus Street, which is open 24h and near to the airport terminals.
  • Numerous services are available in all Dubai Airport terminals, including refreshments, lounges, baby-care facilities and medical services. In Terminal 3, you can also find shower facilities in the spa centre, which are useful after a long flight before you get into your hire car.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars at Dubai Intl Airport for $35 or less
