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 paying Hertz 1700 for a Honda Civic for two years. That is for a 2012, which I wanted because the 2013 don't have cruise. It worked out for me because I just took the car I had been renting monthly. Only 24,000 miles for that price.

I am with @ziokendo, to me the idea of putting up the capital just does not make sense, even if it ends up costing me more. Seen too many things happen that I will never take a loan here. Plus I read all the stories on the DDR thread about getting your car serviced, when mine broke down it was one phone call and I had a loaner there in an hour.
skyrookie and AmexCars like this.

I'm paying Al Emad 1900 per month, for a Hyundai Accent, with full insurance cover. 5AED for Salik (that extra dirham does add up!) so I've resorted to taking a few shortcuts.

I was hooked when I saw an ad for 1450 per month back in June 2013, til I found out it was the price without any insurance.

They're a bunch of muppets in general - they kinda like to call and harass for 'overdue' payments' even though you've never been sent or given an invoice. I also can't deal with the Barsha branch which is closer to me because I got my car from the Marina (I had no idea it came from that branch!). Seems they spent all their money on nice offices but not on staff.

I've been trying to find a cheaper alternative from a company that actually has staff with a clue but that's proving futile.

The car I have is fine and when I had a prang a few months back, these guys eventually sorted it out for me (took a while but the little moron that could got there in the end).

My 2c.

for what it's worth, we have been renting on and off from Budget beside the JLT metro in marina for the past year and have had no issues and really great customer service. we are now renting for a couple of months.

the girls behind the counter speak excellent english and are very kind and accommodating [to the extent that they are allowed to be of course].

and the online booking system works really well too. always have my reservation waiting for me when i show up.

Reading this thread with interest as I shall be looking to rent on a monthly basis when I get to Dubai.

Just so I've got this straight :

- I'm going to get my residence Visa (from my employer) via email whilst in UK
- Fly to Dubai
- On arrival at airport - residence Visa is stamped into my passport
- I go to pickup my rental at the airport - I'm not allowed to, as I'm now on a residence visa and hence need a UAE license before I can drive in Dubai?

Is this correct?!?

Hey guys, I am planning to shift to Dubai in a few weeks, any rate updates on BMW 5 series/equivalent German sedans and Land Cruiser/Prado 4x4 would be super helpful!

Thanks
RM
