Buying a car is often the second-largest expense you’ll make after renting or buying your home. Even buying a pre-owned car in the UAE involves a considerable amount of investment. If you want to spread the cost and still get all the benefits of driving a new car, there is an alternative – car leasing.
At Hertz, we specialise not just in car rentals in the UAE, but in car leasing too. We’re here to keep you moving, whether you want a car for a week or need a longer lease agreement to keep you on the road for six months or more. So what is the difference between car hire and car leasing in the UAE? Here is our quick guide, and what you should be looking for in a car lease agreement.
If you want to rent a car in Dubai or anywhere else across the UAE, Hertz is your first choice. With a huge range of models and makes on offer, you can drive off in a Toyota CH-R or a Corolla Cross, a RAV-4 Hybrid or a Polestar 2. Whether you’re looking for a sleek sedan or a rugged 4×4, you’ll find your perfect match at Hertz.
Car hire can be a short-term agreement for a couple of days. For example, if you need a family car for a weekend event, you can make the most of our short-term car rental deals in Dubai or Abu Dhabi. But if you want a longer-term option to make the most of those summer holidays with the family as well as deal with the daily commute, you could look at one of our special car leasing packages. These are effectively long-term car rental deals with some great extras too.
Car leasing gives you the option to sign a deal for up to nine months or longer, and is ideal if you’re staying in the UAE for work for six months or a year, or simply don’t want the hassle of buying a car. With generous mileage allowances and extra benefits such as insurance and maintenance costs included, car leasing gives you the ability to budget your motoring finances too.
The variety of monthly car rental offers is designed to suit your exact motoring needs, matching not just a car leasing deal but the right kind of vehicle to your driving requirements too.
Drive Green – at Hertz, we understand the impact driving cars is having on the planet. So one of our most popular options for long-term car rental is our Drive Green Package. Take out a one, three or six-month car lease with a generous 2,500km allowance per month and you can drive a hybrid or EV that won’t cost the earth. We love the Polestar 2, a full EV that gives you a premium driving experience. The Polestar 2 is one of the most popular electric vehicles in Dubai. If you want more flexibility and a car that can cope with busy family life, choose from our selection of hybrid cars such as the RAV-4 hybrid or Toyota Corolla Cross hybrid.
Daily Drive – If you live and work in the UAE our Daily Drive is a great choice. With a generous 4,000km monthly mileage allowance and car hire deals for one, three or six months, Daily Drive is ideal for urban professionals. Our car lease in Dubai and across the UAE means that you keep moving in one of our top-quality rental cars, with free doorstep delivery and collection for even greater convenience.
Urban Select – This monthly car rental is our most flexible long-term lease agreement, giving you a whole month and up to 2,500km to cope with those last-minute plans. Heading off on holiday with the kids?
