Default Cheapest option for leasing a car?

Digging around, I found this

Rent a Car Dubai UAE Car Rental Economic Luxury & Limousine

Does anyone know any good dealerships for the super frugal?

Thanks!

I rented a Lancer off some Indian blokes in Al Quoz. It cost me 1550 a month + salik + any fines (obviously). I never paid it on time, they never cared, I hired it on my UK license for 6months and they were great.

I know they've got a bit more professional now - ie; they have a company name and had more blokes milling about their yard. I don't know the name but can give you pinpoint directions from Umm Sequiem road.

One of the biggest drivers of price is the length of period that you are tied in to a contract. If you only want to be tied in for say 6 - 12 months you will pay significantly more than being tied in for 36 months.

Plenty of places will rent a lancer 1.3 for 1550 a month on a month by month. Just rented a skoda fabia for 1900 month by month, 2014 model with 8000 kms. Delivered to my office no dramas. just didn't fancy the car smelling of a Beirut brothel or Bombay latrine so bypassed the cheaper lancer


Mirage 1400
Lancer 1.3 1550
Lancer 1.6 1700
Polo 2100
All month by month

Guys, that's fantastic! Really!

I'm happy with any car really. I mean I would looooooooooooooooooooove to buy myself a second hand Mazda convertible, but they seem to be getting expensive....

Keep the tips coming though, guys and girls! Thanks for the help!

I really haven't seen many MX5's here but they are a great car if you are short and dress hair
If they'd made it full size it would have even more successful

Best make up your mind......Civic, Mirage or mx5?

English, Indian or you can do a marvellous purple rinse and a stupendous blow job

You don't have high expectations from a cheap Romanian car.
