Car Leasing and Renting Accommodation in Abu Dhabi
 
I am coming to work in Abu Dhabi and I need some advice on leasing cars.
Can any one give me some guidance on the cost of leasing a car. What do you get for your money. If you don't know the cost do you know any companies that lease cars? If so can you let me know.
Also how easy is it to find accommodation either to share or to rent myself?
Again can anyone point me in the direction of renting agencies.

Thank you very much and I look forward to hearing your response.

Kind Regards

Poodle.

Hello poodle. Welcome to the forum.

Car rental prices start as low as AED65 a day, which is about 10 quid. That price wud get u a Toyota Tercel. Prices then rise by brackets of 5-10 dirhams, about a pound, and you move onto a Corolla for AED 75, then onto a Mazda and it keeps getting higher and higher.

Best check the sites Chris suggested. I just wanted to give u rough price guide. Hope it helps.
