What conditions and documents are needed to rent a car in Dubai?


Renting a car is effortless when you come to Brooklands. We don’t require a deposit or a security, so there’s no need for a credit card for contract signings. All you need is a valid international driver’s license and your original passport. 


Anyone over the age of 21 with a valid driver’s license can rent a car. Our staff will help you finalize the contract on the same day of the vehicle issuance, and if necessary, deliver the car to the airport. Upon arrival, a clean, comfortable car fully ready for use will be waiting for you.
