1 – Online Payment Policy:

You need to use your Personal credit or debit cards to pay online. Otherwise, you can’t use this service.

2 – Invoicing and Payment Terms:

  • The renter will pay when picking up the rented car. Renters must inform their sales agent of any specific event and requirements before renting. In these cases, charges will be added to the security deposit in advance to confirm commitment to the rental and automobile.
  • In advance of terms of the rental (i.e., a prepayment), the invoice will be issued on the day of picking up the rented car, and the renter must fully settle charges immediately.
  • We charge a deposit of AED 5,000 on the renting day and will refund that money after 30 working days of car return to handle any traffic fines, Salik (toll charges), damages, etc. (These fines will be charged and included within the final cost)
  • Within Monthly and Lease rentals, the invoice will be issued in advance of the rental term and settled immediately.

  • If the rental contract is based weekly, but the renter delivers it during the first week, the renter will be charged daily, not weekly. It works the same for monthly rentals.
