Dubai, Emirates: Hatchback Rental
The most popular models representing the mini, compact, and economy car segments in Dubai are: Toyota Corolla, Toyota Auris, Opel Astra, Hyundai Accent, VW Golf, Ford Focus and others.

When hiring a budget hatchback, it is definitely worth saving on insurance deposit (franchise). Deposits on small cars in Emirates vary from 100 to 1.000 euro/dollars. Check the rental conditions of each car in your selection to find a vehicle with a minimum deposit.

If your routes in Emirates are foreseen to pass through hilly areas or mountains, it is not recommended to consider very small cars for rental. Their engines are usually insufficient for a confident driving on the roads with long or steep climbs.

At the rental office in Dubai, consider to take a 'Breakdown Assistance' package or ask an officer for a contact data to use in case of a vehicle breakdown. Cheap cars are sometimes unpredictable in operation.

Upon receipt of the rental invoice, please check that all the information, as well as the final payment amount do match the data in your voucher. wishes you a safe and great trip to Dubai!

Driving Advices for Emirates – Traffic Regulations and Road Usage Peculiarities
Previous hints
We simply cannot forget to mention good quality of local roads. All the roads in the country are well-organized and maintained. Virtually all large crossroads have traffic loops, thanks to which it is possible to turn right, escaping the traffic light. Such numerous small improvements make driving a lot easier and save a lot of time for local drivers who do not need to stand in endless traffic jams.
The system of penalties in the United Arab Emirates is also quite specific. The police stops the driver only if he has committed a serious violation (for example, has passed a red light or has driven on the opposite lane). In this case, the penalty bill will be given to the driver right on the spot.
If you have committed a small traffic violation (talking on a cell phone while driving or driving without fastening the seat belt), the driver is unlikely to be stopped by the police. He will even not receive the bill by mail. Drivers remember about all the violations they have committed during the yearly obligatory technical inspection. During the year, all the violations are recorded in the traffic database, so drivers receive one bill for all the violations they made.

This is a massive and beautiful structure, which is distinguished by its unique architectural shape and interesting internal structure. Shindaga Tower is one more important architectural object.
