Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at Dubai Airport! Like any big city, Dubai has many distinct neighborhoods, and with your rental it’s easy to get from one to the other. Downtown Dubai is all futuristic architecture and skyscrapers. Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, houses a mall and several hotels and attractions, and, of course, has fantastic views. Bur Dubai is the historic district and a great place to visit local souks, or markets, especially the spice souk. Jumeirah is the city’s most multicultural area—from here you can access the beach for some relaxation and recreation.

Dubai may be modern and urban, but it’s located in the Arabian Desert, so how about a desert safari? It’s an experience you won’t forget—you’ll even see waterfalls, cliffs, and lakes. Back in the city, enjoy local Emirati food and cuisine from Dubai’s immigrant communities—Indian, Persian, and Lebanese.

Dubai is a great place to visit, but the surrounding region has even more to offer, so why not get a longer term car rental? Go to nearby Abu Dhabi, another modern Emirate city, explore more of the desert, or, if you’re car provider allows it, visit neighboring Oman. You can even pick up your car at Dubai Airport and drop it off in a different city. Start planning your adventure now!

Dubai Airport is also known as Matar Dubayy al-Duwali.
