The travel industry has been through a lot in the last year or so but like everything else it is slowly getting back to its feet. That means that the most exotic and luxurious destinations on the planet are once again accepting tourists and welcoming them with open arms. If you missed traveling, believe us that you are not alone. Billions of people have been craving it since they could not really leave their homes, let alone their countries, for more than a full year.
Depending on what kind of a trip you like and where you have been already, you will choose the most appealing destination this summer. You may want a faraway island destination or some magnificent world capital. You may even opt for a mountain summer getaway and choose open nature and wilderness instead of beaches and tropics. Well, what about a place where you can do a little bit of everything and still have numerous other things to do? If you decide to go to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), more specifically Dubai, you will have an abundance of activities to do and things to see.
Dubai has become the luxury capital of the world in recent years and people flock to its streets to visit glamorous resorts, explore the never-ending beaches and artificial islands, go shopping for the products by the high-end brands in the world, and just enjoy the celebrity lifestyle. The city has been made to accommodate all and everything around you makes you feel like royalty. From indoor ski centers to extreme sports like parachuting and racing in the surrounding desert, there is nothing you cannot do there.
The city is home to around 3.4 million people and it stretches across 35 square kilometers. It is an absolute monarchy and the most populous Emirate city-state of the UAE. It was established in the 18th century and for the better part of its history it was nothing more than a fishing village. Then in the 21st century it developed beyond recognition and became a cosmopolitan metropolis that focuses on tourism, hospitality, and international business. It is the home of the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, and it has the second-most five-star hotels in the world.
Such fast development of the small fishing village into one of the richest places on the planet happened due to the oil in the region. Apart from that, Dubai’s strategic location means that it is a crucial global hub for the transport of both cargo and passengers. The modern city-state invests tremendously into trade, tourism, aviation, real estate, and all sorts of financial services. As a matter of fact, the oil business was less than 1% of Dubai’s 2018 GDP, which is an astonishing piece of data.
One of the ways through which you can tell just how successful and luxurious life is in the city is by looking at the vehicles on the streets. Considering how many influential and successful people visit the place every day, it is normal to see some of the most expensive cars on the planet. They are such a common occurrence that it has become quite normal. Even the police have a few Lamborghinis and Ferraris in their amazing fleet of service vehicles.
Thanks to such a car culture in the city, one of the most popular activities and fascinations of tourists is renting of luxury cars. Both for entertainment and fun services, and as a legitimate means of transport while there, the car rentals in Dubai are like nowhere else in the world. If you are a fan of exotic supercars and would like to try as many of them in one place, look no further than luxury car rental Dubai. In the next section, we will talk about the cars themselves, how you can rent them, and most importantly, how much it costs.
Luxury Car Rentals
In order to properly tell you the prices of rentals, we will be using the United Arab Emirates Dirham, the official currency of the UAE and therefore Dubai. One United States Dollar ($1) is 3.67 Dirham (د.إ). So, off we go!
Let us start with something not that exotic and unorthodox, just to put things into perspective. For example, a 2017 Audi A6 costs AED 225 per day, AED, 1,405 per week, and AED 5,000 per month. That comes down to $61, $382, and $1,361. This is quite affordable for such a high end place, and this car is all you need to get around the city comfortably. But there is so much more to simply drive a regular car. Chevrolet Camaro 2018, Mercedes E 350 from 2019, or the 2018 Porsche Cayenne GTS are more expensive, two or three times more even, but this is still not the real deal and the reason you rent a car in Dubai if you want speed, excitement, and luxury.
What about something along the lines of Ferraris, Lambos, Rolls Royce, or Bentleys? Now we are talking. So, one of the most expensive things you can rent will be the Ferrari 812 Superfast, and it costs around AED 13,950 per day, AED 97,650 per week, and AED 418,500 per month at most rentals.
Not everyone can afford this, since that comes down to $3,800, $26,586, and $113,941 per month. Astronomical prices. Lamborghini Aventador Roadster, one of the most famous supercars ever however, is almost half as much at “only” AED 7,050 per day. The most expensive Rolls Royce, the 2018 Dawn, is AED 6,788 for the day. In case you still want a Ferrari but are not willing to pay so much for the aforementioned beast, you have the option of the GTC Lusso V12 for AED 5,063 per day, or the 488 Spider for AED 4,800 per day. Bentley Bentayga is the least expensive of these and costs AED 4,688 for a full day of driving.
Of course, there are countless other models to try, from McLarens to Teslas, and all of the aforementioned brands with much cheaper models to choose from. All in all, the average supercar will probably cost you between $500 and $1,000 per day, around $18,000 per week, and some $25,000 per month. Luxury costs money and it takes an astonishing car to make you feel truly special. Dubai is worth it, so for a fun day of riding around at higher than ever speeds make sure to spoil yourself like never before!
