Default Car Hire

Hi Everyone

We have finally arrived in Abu Dhabi yesterday. Loving the weather thus far!

I have some interviews lined up for next week but one of them is in Dubai. Can someone recommend a car hire place? I have checked a few and daily rates are around 250AED but i remember reading somewhere that you can hire cars for around £150-200 a month? is this right?

any help would be appreciated, i need it for sunday

usually a 100dhs or so a day for a small car. a rental for a month is around 2,000 to 2,500 a month dont know where you got that from, more like 500 pounds a month.

I've used Paramount before - cheap and cheerful. Do they have an Abu Dhabi branch?

Depending on where in DXB you want to go you can get a cab there and back, probably 250-300 each way.

I use diamond lease. The bog standard Mitsubishi Lancer is about 1900 dhs/month. The slightly less minging Mitsubishi Lancer EX is 2000 or so. The only problem with DL is that they only have Mitsubishis, as far as I can tell.

Probably because they are owned by Al Habtoor, the Mitsubishi agents?
