Offering a 360-degree approach to its car rental services, Hertz is one of the longest-established companies in the UAE since its arrival here in 1993.

It offers a wide range of types of cars since it is one of the largest car rentals around. Its fleet consists of a lot of sedans, SUVs, hatchbacks, and pickup trucks, but it also has some coupes, vans, and even electric cars.

While we do love that it seems to cover all the bases for the types of cars a car rental should have, it lacked luxury car options that would come in handy for events.

Despite that, the quality of these cars is definitely top-of-the-line. We love how every time we avail of its services, we can always expect a clean nice smelling vehicle to arrive at our designated spot.

On top of that, of all the times we have gotten Hertz, we never had a mechanical problem with the cars that we got.

We also love how diverse its service quality is with it having a framework of offerings that can accommodate all kinds of needs, from short-term rentals and long-term leasing to corporate leasing and flexible monthly plans.

And because it is one of the biggest rental companies around, finding one is never a problem. It also has 24/7 support services that include emergency roadside assistance.


  • Offers a great range of cars for rent
  • Cars are of excellent quality
  • Offers flexible and diverse services
  • Has 12 locations throughout the city


  • Few luxury car options

If you want to drive around in style or make your entrance to an event in and of itself, Be VIP offers a wide variety of luxury cars and supercars in Dubai.

The range of cars it has to offer focuses more on style over versatility with its esteemed car brands like Ferrari, Bentley, Lamborghini, Rolls Royce, Range Rover, and Mercedes Benz.

Despite the lack of versatility and utility in many of the cars, the range of brands and car types is still versatile for a luxury car rental company.

And while it has the most expensive car models in its fleet, it offers some of the best rates for luxury car rentals in Dubai. 

With Be VIP, you’re assured that there are no hidden charges, which is why we love availing of its services. It definitely lets us live a champagne lifestyle on a lemonade budget.

Be VIP also provides a collision damage waiver which protects you from car repair expenses in the event of an accident, making our driving experience with it worry-free.

It is also known for its convenient services. To best serve its clients, its hotlines are open 24/7 and it can deliver your chosen ride anytime and anywhere in Dubai for free.

However, it only has one location which means the delivery is that much more vital to its services. Picking up the car you’ve rented here is almost impractical.


  • Great range of luxury cars for rent
  • The cars are all in excellent condition
  • Transparent transactions and affordable rates
  • Added benefits for a worry-free experience


  • Only has 1 location
  • Lacks utility and practical cars

Known for its cheap rates and flexible rental packages, Al Emad precisely meets the needs of every car renter and makes driving around accessible whenever they need it with a robust service framework.

We love the condition of the car that we rented. It was noticeable that it has been recently cleaned, and it was delivered to us smelling nice and fresh.

On top of that, the car ran quite smoothly and we had no issues with it throughout our week’s worth of renting.

However, Al Emad definitely needs to expand the types of cars it offers. While it definitely has diversity in the brands covered, it lacks more choices when it comes to body types.

Right now, it only offers sedans and SUVs which are great economical choices for the majority of car renters, but it would be nice to see utility and luxury vehicles as well.

On top of that, the service is quite slow and unresponsive at times. It took multiple calls before someone answered, and the process of renting out a car was not streamlined based on our experience.

While we were definitely paying for cheaper fees, it does not mean that we deserve to go through so much effort just to book a car. Despite that, whenever we would interact with its staff, they have been nothing but friendly.

We also do not like the fact that it is not open 24/7, because this limits its accessibility to customers. On top of that, it does not provide roadside assistance.


  • Cars are in excellent condition
  • Has a wide range of economical cars for rent
  • Friendly service
  • Cheap rates


  • Slow and unresponsive service
  • No luxury or utility cars for rent
  • No 24/7 roadside assistance

Utilizing a large global car rental and leasing marketplace, OneClickDrive works with more than 200 local car rental companies to help its clients find the best car for them.

Because of its marketplace, the range of cars it offers is probably one of the biggest around. 

From high-end supercar rentals such as Ferraris, and Rolls Royces to luxury SUVs, to economy cars such as Kia Picanto, Nissan Sunny, and Renault Duster, it was not joking when it said that it can find the perfect car for you to rent.

We love that its marketplace makes almost every available car rental accessible to us.

However, since OneClickDrive only sources its cars from many different car rental companies, the condition of these cars can be a hit or miss because it does not have its own fleet.

However, we do love its service and how its own app truly streamlines the whole process of renting out a car.

Its mobile app, which allowed us to browse through its inventory and book the car that we have selected, worked perfectly for us.

This also made OneClickDrive’s service very much accessible despite it not being open 24/7. On top of that, it doesn’t offer roadside assistance, but it does have chauffeur services for a hassle-free experience.


  • Has a network that has access to 200+ car rental companies
  • Mobile app streamlines the process of booking a car
  • Mobile app makes renting a car much more accessible


  • Cars’ condition can be hit or miss
  • Not open 24/7

Customer Reviews

I must say it was an outstanding experience from start to finish

“I recently had the pleasure of experiencing the exceptional services provided by OneClickDrive, and I must say it was an outstanding experience from start to finish. Right from the moment I contacted them via OneClickDrive application, I was greeted by a warm and professional person via Whatsapp who made the entire rental process a breeze. The selection of vehicles was impressive, boasting a wide range of options to cater to every preference and need. The car I chose was in immaculate condition, and the check-in process was efficient, leaving me with no worries before hitting the road.

During the rental period, I was continually impressed by OneClickDrive Car Rental’s commitment to customer satisfaction. Their 24/7 customer support was a lifeline during my trip, providing helpful guidance and swift solutions to any questions I had. Moreover, the car’s performance was impeccable, ensuring a smooth and enjoyable ride throughout my journey. The transparent pricing and absence of hidden fees were refreshing, giving me peace of mind throughout the rental.” – joseph isibor , Google Reviews

“Amazing app. We found some great yacht offers and ended up booking two for the price of one. Considering we were going to book at another place which was quite expensive. Check out OneClickDrive before hiring a car, yacht, and more!” -Safi Salman, Google Reviews

Luxury car rental provider SIXT has a diverse fleet of luxury vehicles in Dubai that boasts style, versatility, and utility.

Specifically, it has cars that are suitable for stylish business travel as well as cars for economical family vacations. 

We love its diverse choices, but it lacks some cars that would have been useful in many situations such as pickup trucks and vans.

It also offers flexible rental periods to fit your needs, from weekly rentals to one-day rentals. 

To make your travels even more convenient, you can also avail of its add-ons, such as GPS, child seats, and unlimited express toll access. All these added benefits make renting cars from it a very accessible experience. 

Plus, it provides customer assistance 24/7 to address queries. The same with the delivery and pickup of cars.

With several locations all over Dubai, including 3 spots at the Dubai International Airport, SIXT provides one of the most convenient luxury car rentals in the city.

However, there have been multiple occasions that whenever we availed its cars, we would find that the car was not as clean as it should be. We found some sticks and leaves, and some amount of dirt on the car floor.

Despite that, the service is always efficient and accommodating. The staff maintained transparency with our transactions at all times.


  • Has a wide range of cars for rent
  • Offers flexible rental periods
  • Has add-ons that make the rental more accessible
  • Has several locations and provides 24/7 assistance


  • Cars are not as clean
  • Lacks utility cars and vans

Customer Reviews

The team at Sixt SZR branch is honest, polite, and offers a drama-free experience

“7 experiences over 3 years, 7 different cars rented, same great service and amazing staff!!!

The team at Sixt SZR branch is honest, polite, and offers a drama-free experience, their cars are also well-maintained. I only wish they start adding even more vehicle types/makes to their fleet, particularly in the high-performance cars segment.” – Tareq Adel, Google Reviews

Really enjoyed renting with them

“5-star trustworthy service, good cars, and as a plus, you can rent here without a credit card.

Most rental cars in Dubai require a Credit Card, but Sixt will allow you to rent using your debit card. They will charge (block) your debit card, but 4 weeks later they will return the amount to your card.

Also, they are very efficient at replying to emails and answering phone calls.

Really enjoyed renting with them.” – Erik Fiuza, Google Reviews
