Default Car rental in Doha

Hi everyone


I have recently arrived in Doha for work and will be here for 14 months. I am looking at renting a car and would like some recommendations as to reputable and relatively competitive car rental companies - any tips?


I am looking for a medium sized/small SUV type car.


Thanks in advance.


Tan

Thanks for the recommendation - what should I be looking to pay for a medium-large sized/SUV type car (say a Chev Malibu or Ford SUV)?

Did you even look at the Oasis link given above?

QAR4k/month for a shitty SUV, Ford Edge or similar. Will have had a hard life on the streets of Dodge city...

Or, do as I do and rent a QAR2k/m Nissan Sunny Classic and add some excitement into your life, pitted against the locals' weapon of choice, the Landcruiser 5.7 v8, driven by 16 year olds

As much as that would make things interesting, I suspect the Nissan wouldn't last a day!

Take his advice mate , just take a battered old Sunny and get yourself around . No need to be paying out big lumps of cash on hired motors to start with .
