Top tips for renting a car in Abu Dhabi

  • If anywhere is a car country, the United Arab Emirates is. If you want to take in the beautiful desert expanse, there simply is no better way than in your own vehicle. Also, there is often no public transport options available to take you to some of Abu Dhabi’s most famous sites like the Emirates Palace.
  • Need to pick up your hire car after arriving in Abu Dhabi? Travelers with flights landing at Abu Dhabi International Airport will find the car hire counters in the Skypark Plaza just across from Terminal 3 and just a few minutes’ walking distance from Terminals 1 and 2.
  • Headlight flashing is a common occurrence on many of the faster streets and highways in Abu Dhabi and, for drivers from other countries, this may be confusing at first. When you see a pair of flashing headlights that means the driver is trying to signal you to move out of the lane so they can go by. This can be avoided by sticking to slower lanes of the highway if you don’t want to drive the maximum allowed speed.
  • Traffic in Abu Dhabi is not an overly strenuous affair, so visiting drivers shouldn’t worry about it too much. However, rush hour does pick up in the morning at around 6:00 a.m. and lasts until 9:00 a.m. In the afternoon it builds up again by about 4:00 p.m. and cools down by around 6:00 p.m. The bulk of the congestion occurs on Highways E11 and E12, as they connect to the city.
