TIPS FOR RENTING A CAR
Before you make a contract, ask to make a “test drive” of the car to make sure that it is working.
Carefully inspect the car and take a picture of every scratch on the phone to avoid any misunderstanding in the future with the landlord.
In the Dubai Republic are very common American cars. Their run is in miles (1 mile is 1.2 km).
In the high tourist season is better to agree on renting in advance.
Typically, the cost of rent includes insurance against theft and accident, but sometimes the contract is made in such a way that in case of an accident, the client will have to cover part of the costs. Therefore, make sure that the insurance says “saguaro full” – that is, full insurance.
One gallon (3.7 l) costs between 5-6 dollars.
The average price of a tank is 45 liters – 2800 pesos ($ 60)
ROADS IN THE DUBAI REPUBLIC: PAYMENT, RULES, FINES.PAYMENT
At the same time, going on a journey, it is necessary to take into account that the majority of Dubai roads are paid. And payment is accepted in local currency – peso. So take care of this in advance and exchange money.
Payment is charged at special protected payment points, which are called “drunk.” Payment may be charged in the amount of 25 to 300 pesos (0.5 to 6 dollars).
The rules of the road in the Dubai Republic are monitored by AMET (Autoridad Metropolitan de Transported). They are easily recognizable by their light green form.
Most often fined for unfastened belt, speeding, talking on mobile. City speed limits are typically 25 and 60 mph. On the track – depending on the sign.
The penalty for breaking the rules is usually 1000 – 2500 pesos (25-50 dollars). The protocol is in place, and the fine itself is paid through BanReservas.
Many of our compatriots will certainly be pleased by the fact that there are no strict rules regarding alcohol at the wheel in the Dubai Republic. So drink a bottle of beer before the road is not forbidden. However, we urge you to respect the measure in libations and careful driving!
Even on the roads there are jeeps with flashing lights, which are written MOPC (Ministerio de Obras Publicans y Communications). They also keep order and safety, but this structure does not deal with fines. They can always ask for help and ask for directions.
DUBAI DRIVING FEATURES
The rules on the Dubai roads are almost the same as ours, but when traveling by car, it is important to take into account local peculiarities:
In the Dubai Republic, a right to red light is permitted.
Dubai drivers often neglect the use of a turn signal, and in cases where it is defective, waving in the direction of the turn.
The main problem on the roads in populated areas is motorcyclists. They do not know the rules and restrictions. Motorcyclist’s turn-around are a frequent occurrence on Dubai roads.
Driving through the countryside, carefully look around – animals and even children can run out onto the road.
In many Dubai cities they like to install speed bumps at almost every step, and this is not always accompanied by the installation of warning signs. So be careful when moving speed bumps and gutters, which are also quite common. Therefore, when traveling at night, beware of animals running onto the tracks, spontaneous motorcyclists and large pits. And don’t be surprised that Dubais drive with a high beam.
And the last piece of advice: when you go, take a Spanish dictionary with you or download it to your phone – it will help you out in a variety of situations.
