If you’re visiting Dubai and like the idea of having your own private driver during your stay, there are several reputable companies offering chauffeured car rentals in the city.
With large distances between the city’s main attractions and often debilitating heat, getting around Dubai by foot is simply not a viable option. And while there is a reliable metro system, as well as plenty of taxis, for maximum convenience you can’t beat paying for the privilege of your own private car and driver. There are numerous car rental companies offering private drivers as part of their packages – with some surprisingly affordable deals available, too. We’ve picked out three of the best catering to a broad spectrum of budgets.
Best for luxury: Indus Chauffeur Services
If you like the idea of travelling around Dubai in style and have a budget to match your aspirations, then Indus Chauffeur Services are our first choice for luxury car rentals. Promising a VIP experience, their fleet management team guarantees luxury, comfort and security to customers. They work with professional drivers that provide you with 24/7 customer care and are trained to follow the local rules and guidelines without compromising on the quality of service you receive. Among their outstanding fleet are high-end models such as the Audi 6 and Range Rover Sport, through to highly prestigious cars such as the Rolls-Royce Ghost and even a Lamborghini Aventador supercar. Pricing includes your chauffeur, vehicle, mileage, taxes, fees, and VAT.
Best for groups: Bus Rent Dubai
If you’re travelling to Dubai with a large family or group of friends, then you may require a bigger than average vehicle to get you all around.
