Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates, is nothing if not efficient, and your Al Maktoum International Airport car rental booking process should be the same. There is an array of rental companies operating out of this airport in Dubai, so rather than compare each one and its vehicles separately, use Airport Rentals to quickly and easily determine which car is right for you.
By entering your pick-up and drop-off dates, the site will bring up a list of all available cars from the likes of Avis, Budget, Europcar and Hertz. With so many options, you’ll be able to find the right car for you, whether that’s an SUV to get out of town, a luxury model or something smaller at a bargain price.
Each vehicle comes with Airport Rentals’ lowest-price guarantee. Plus, you won’t be charged any credit card or booking fees for your reservation, helping to keep the costs down.
What to do with a Dubai airport car rental
As the Dubai World City - the location of the Al Maktoum Airport - is designed as an ‘airport city’, much of the attractions in the area are based in Dubai itself just up the road.
The world’s largest dancing fountain can be found at the Dubai Mall, where 1.5 million lumens of light interplay with 22,000 gallons of water to the sound of Arab and international music. There are daily shows at 1pm, 1.30pm (on Fridays this runs 30 minutes later), and every half hour between 6pm and 11pm.
Admire the architecture on display with two of the city’s most iconic structures: the Burj Khalifa and Burj Al Arab. The former is the tallest tower in the world at 828 metres, where you can head up to the 124th floor to the observation deck ‘At The Top’. The Burj Al Arab is a massive hotel complex, but also houses a luxurious shopping mall in its atrium, and the Wild Wadi Water Park right in front of this massive tower.
Al Maktoum Airport
Dubai World City was created with its geography, the aviation sector and the role of airports in mind. It focuses on the airport and exists around the airport, rather than the airport merely existing near a main city.
The first stage of the project is already complete, with a capacity of 600,000 tonnes per year - a number set to grow to 1.4 million tonnes by the time it’s finished.
It is located just 30 minutes from Dubai central, but has plenty of amenities within DWC itself as well.
If you are landing at Dubai International Airport, you can also grab a rental car from there. Having a rental car will give you more freedom to explore the area. You could also take advantage of your car hire to discover the UNESCO listed city of Al-Ain. Head to Oman to explore the capital city, Muscat and stop at the charming coastal city of Sohar on the way.
