The average cost of renting economy class cars in Dubai

We have already written more than once that one of the most popular forms of entertainment in the UAE is car rental, especially since the Dubai market is so saturated with numerous rental companies of absolutely any scale, from small private rental cars to large international companies.

Although the rent is not always for fun, more often it is a simple necessity, because the distances between objects in Dubai, as well as in other emirates, are really far from small, and taxi rates are even higher.

Of course, the interest of any tourist is chained to expensive, luxurious and exotic cars, but the cost of renting such cars is not very attractive. But what if, after all, the dream of taking a ride through Dubai at night does not let you fall asleep?

We have selected several car models that combine not only budget cost, but also comfort:

  • compact hatchbacks (for example, Nissan Micra, Toyota Yaris or Chevrolet Aveo) - the cost of renting such cars is on average from 38 to 43 dollars per day.

  • standard sedans (Toyota Corolla, Nissan Sentra or Hyundai Elantra) - the average cost varies from 35 to 48 dollars per day.

  • comfortable crossovers (Honda HR-V, Nissan Kicks or Hyundai Creta) - in this category, the average rental price per day will be 52-58 dollars.

Of course, it is worth noting that the cost of renting a car increases and falls in the same way as other related expenses for tourists, depending on the seasonality. In high season, rentakars can raise prices almost 2 times, and in low season, on the contrary, they are ready to reduce as much as possible.

Another, quite understandable, but not always obvious factor affecting the rental price is the year of manufacture of the car. Often, in a rental company, you can take the same model of car with a huge difference in price, despite the fact that the difference in “age” is only 1 or 2 years.

And, of course, from our side, in order to avoid unnecessary expenses and upsets, we recommend contacting only reliable rental companies or aggregators, such as or and do not forget about an IDA International Driving Permit necessity.
