How much does it cost to rent an SUV in Dubai?

Average prices for SUV rental hover around the AED 750 mark. But more luxurious and modern SUVs can exceed AED 1000 per day. With an affordable price to suit individuals, families, and business professionals, Renty is the intelligent choice for SUV rental in the UAE.
Can your SUVs be used for off-road driving?
Although most SUVs have been designed to withstand challenging terrain, most rental providers do not cover off-road driving. This is because of off-roading places additional strain on the car’s engine and parts. The practice can also lead to external cosmetic damage, which requires additional cost to maintain a flawless appearance. All SUV cars on the Renty platform are not available for off-road driving. However, there are some specialist rental providers in Dubai who are able to offer this service.
What is the mileage limit? What happens if I exceed it?
Clients who rent a car through Renty must sign a rental agreement. The terms of the agreement vary from provider to provider. But most agreements will have a mileage limit in place. Going over the mileage limit will usually incur additional charges after vehicle hand-back. In some cases, a rental provider may provide a flexible mileage limit - or even offer unlimited mileage. Clients on a budget should try to stick below the mileage limit if possible. Calculating the average amount of miles/kilometers needed prior to rental will ensure no surprise bills at the end of the agreement.
What documents are required to rent a car in Dubai?
When renting an SUV in Dubai, certain documents are required before the provider can issue the car. For tourists or business professionals with no residential status, a valid passport, visa entry stamp, and a home country license is required. Residents of the UAE are usually only required to provide a valid driving license. Many country licenses are accepted all over the UAE. Including U.S. driver's licenses. Each rental provider will give further details about which documents are required. It is worth noting that the UAE requires car renters to be 21 years or older.
Is insurance required to rent an SUV car?
All the car rental partners we work with provide standard insurance as part of the rental agreement. This is a legal requirement within the UAE. However, this only provides protection against third-party accidents and damage. We highly recommend spending a little more and taking out comprehensive car insurance, otherwise known as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW). This provides protection against accidental damage caused by the vehicle driver. Some rental companies will make CDW a requirement within the rental agreement, while others may only require standard insurance.
What are the fuel policies?
Each car rented via Renty will come with a set amount of fuel. This is usually enough for a few mile’s worths of driving (more than enough to visit a nearby filling station). It is the responsibility of the driver to ensure the car is properly topped up with fuel. Breakdown charges and fines caused by a lack of fuel will also be the responsibility of the car renter. We recommend analyzing the approximate amount of miles to be driven per day and work a suitable fuel budget around this information. This will ensure enough fuel and prevent unnecessary breakdowns and associated recovery charges.
What services are not included in the rental price?
Clients renting an SUV should be aware that some services are not included in the rental price. Car parking is one area where clients will need to pay additional fees. Most car parks in Dubai charge by the hour, with some offering short-stay, long-stay, or a mixture of both. In a similar fashion, clients are also responsible for access to toll roads, e.g. Salik. The system used in Dubai operates on a pre-pay model and automatically charges cars who drive across the gateway. Any road fines, breakdown or recovery fees are also the responsibility of the client. Be sure to read the rental agreement thoroughly to become fully aware of all associated fees.
