I'm considering renting for up to 2 years (though I don't think I'd commit to a company for 2 years up front).

Any thoughts on the discount that could be negotiated? Any experiences or figures?

Cheers

In order to get a significant discount you are going to have to commit. They won't give you a discount because you tell them you are planning on renting for two years.

All those companies will lease for a two year term at a much better rate, but you have to sign a contract. Price will vary depending on if you want a fleet car (used) or a new one and also based on mileage you plan to drive

Why do you not just get one through a franchised dealership, I am certain they will do deals that are two years long with the option to throw it back at them, after the period.

If you think logically, this buy-back deals are the worse of both worlds (owning vs renting), because they involve some kind of complicated bank loan but you still cannot act as it is your own car if you plan to give it back at them.

1) If you buy you have the lowest cost of ownership, but all the responsibilities are on you (to immobilize the capital, to mantain, register, insure the car, and sell it back - maybe in a rush - when you come back home).

2) If you rent long term, you have a slightly higher cost of ownership (with Hertz I pay 2,100 aed/month for a brand new Honda Accord for 3 years including full insurance, full maintenance, registration, tyres, replacement car, 30,000km/year, etc) but you don't need to worry about anything.

3) If you do this plans at the dealership, you are actually buying the car (well the car will be owned by the bank) and making a huge loan paperwork with all the various hassles involved, but you are still fully responsible of the car, and if you make small damages to the car (like parking scratches) as per contract terms they can nickel and dime you at the time of the buying back discounting the agreed price or refusing to take the car back ...

I have just seen yesterday a Thrifty leaflet at the Spinneys, it was like 2,000 aed/month for a new VW Jetta 1 year: 2,400 for a VW Passat. I have no experience with the company, but sounds really a good deal.

I believe is 2,100/aed at Hertz for a Camry (2 years), I am renting an Accord with them.
I am very happy with Hertz service till now, while I have other colleague experience with other companies which has been dreadful, so be careful, if your salesman (who should give you the better image of the company) looks unprofessional imagine the rest of the company (backoffice, maintenance, emergency services, etc).

I am due over to Dubai next week, here in the UK these deals through franchised dealers are competitive and include all maintenance and even insurance with some manufacturers, are there not franchised dealers that offer the same benefits when buying through them. With regards damages to the vehicle do the rental company not charge you. I have just sold my vehicle in the UK which was on a PCP deal through a dealer and made a small profit. However I do understand what you are saying but after three years you simply hand the car back with the rental company, if it was through a dealer you would have the option to buy at the agreed Guaranteed future value and if you sell the vehicle on all profits are yours, however UAE rules obviously differ. I have been in the motor trade for 15 years here in the UK, I am looking forward to experiencing the UAE Automotive Sector.
