Hertz in in Al Wahda Street

Close to the Al Majaz Waterfront, and approximately a 20-minute drive from the centre of Dubai, Al Wahda Street is a 6km-long road in the city of Sharjah. It is home to an excellent selection of restaurants and shops, and is next to the Cultural Square, which is noted for its impressive Islamic architecture. Whether you're travelling in the area for business or leisure, hiring an air-conditioned vehicle from Hertz Car Rental is the most practical and convenient way to get about in Sharjah, Dubai, and other areas of the UAE.

Rules and Regulations for driving in Sharjah

All drivers of hire vehicles must be at least 21 years old, although a minimum age of 25 may apply for some classes of vehicles. You will be required to present a valid driver's licence, and you may need to present an International Drivers' Permit depending on your country of origin. While not obligatory for some nationalities, it is recommended that you bring this permit with you in case it is requested.

Bear in mind that a lot of road rules and regulations in the UAE are different to what you might expect in Europe or North America. That is why you must always follow local driving laws and stick to the speed limits, even if you notice other drivers disobeying. Police in the UAE may issue instant fines for even the most minor offences, which also include swearing and obscenities. In addition, drivers must use a hands-free kit if they intend to use their phone while on the road.

Attractions

Dubai has plenty of attractions geared to car lovers. Ferrari World is reported to be the biggest indoor theme park in the world, with an impressive exhibition of premium Ferraris and more than 20 attractions and rides. Its top attraction is the world’s fastest rollercoaster, although there is plenty to see and do if you prefer to keep your feet on the ground.

Motor racing is a passion for the people of the UAE, and the Yas Marina Circuit is one of the country's leading visitor attractions. It welcomes thousands of people to its annual Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

If you're a fan of vintage cars, don't forget to visit the Sharjah Classic Cars Museum, where you'll find a great selection of cars, motorbikes and bicycles dating back to the early 20th century. For an adrenaline boost, head to the Kartdome go-karting attraction, and if you're visiting the UAE in November, you can go to the Dubai International Motor Show, which holds world-class auto exhibits.

Other special attractions in Dubai include the luxury Dubai Mall, the 160-storyBurjKhalifa skyscraper and observation deck, and the large Dubai Fountain, which lights up at night and is choreographed to music.
