UAE’s Rent A Car Disruption has just started, Goan are the days you walk up to the rental counter, wait in the lines fillup pages of agreements and submit documents every time you rent a car, with no assurance to get the same car model you reserved, this company is a wake up call to other rent a car – The most impresive bit is real time fleet status on selfdirve.ae and it totally serves you on demand with car rentals and leasing options. Reserve it to belive it.

We arrived at the T2 Terminal of Dubai International Airport and were waiting for the baggage. We found selfdrive on google and could reserve the car in just few clicks via the Mobile Online Resvervation process.The Rental car itself was very clean and fairly New, and I had no trouble whats so ever with the car.The processing of returning the rented car was equally pleasant and quick. Just a suggestion- have a Client pickup manager at Dubai International Airport for convenience.

Exciting Rent a Car Deals in Abu Dhabi - UAE


Meaning 'Land of the Gazelle' in Arabic, Abu Dhabi was founded when a young antelope led a wandering tribe to fresh water, on an island with no more than 300 palm ('barasti') huts, a few coral buildings and the Ruler's fort. This simple island settlement has since been transformed into the modern, cosmopolitan city of Abu Dhabi and the high-rise capital of the United Arab Emirates.


Find out more about Abu Dhabi’s religion and traditions with a visit to one of the world's most impressive landmarks, the stunning Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. This architectural marvel, with a capacity for an astonishing 40,000 worshippers, features 80 domes, over 1,000 columns, gold plated chandeliers and the world's largest hand woven carpet.


Head to our landmark Corniche and enjoy an impressive eight kilometres of manicured waterfront that includes children’s play areas, separate cycle and pedestrian pathways, cafés and restaurants, and the Corniche Beach - a lifeguarded beach park. Beach goers should also spend some time on the stunning Saadiyat and Yas public beaches or for a spot of luxury they can book a day in the uber-luxurious Saadiyat Beach Club.

Shopping is something of a national pastime in Abu Dhabi, perhaps because it’s so diverse and tax-free: everything from luxurious and ultra-modern malls with the latest brands, to small, souk-like shops where you can buy traditional perfumes, handicrafts, spices and carpets. 


To explore the lifestyle, head to The Collection at The St Regis, Saadiyat Island Resort, Abu Dhabi and enjoy high-end shops, restaurants and cafés - all within a Mediterranean-style ‘village’ complete with terraces, courtyards and piazzas.

Diversity of experiences characterise Abu Dhabi’s great golf offering – whether it’s championship-ready parkland, ocean or Links facilities, a gentle urban centre course, the sheer uniqueness of a world-class ‘sand’ course or a country course in our heritage heartland of Al Ain.

Where to Stay in Abu Dhabi for Sightseeing

If you're visiting Abu Dhabi for the first time and plan to see the city's top tourist attractions, the best place to stay is near the Corniche, the city's eight-kilometer seafront promenade, with its bike paths, beaches, parks, playgrounds, and fountains. From here, it's easy to take a taxi to other top attractions such as Heritage Village, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, and the theme parks of family-friendly Yas Island. Below are some highly-rated hotels in convenient locations for sightseeing :

  • Luxury Hotels : Near the Corniche, the opulent Emirates Palace is one of Abu Dhabi's top hotels, pampering its guests with plush suites and personal butlers. Nearby, the modern Jumeirah at Etihad Towers offers spectacular views of the Arabian Gulf from its famous Observation Deck, as well as apartment-style accommodation for families. The Shangri-La Hotel, Qaryat Al Beri, connected to a souk, is also a top choice, and if you want to stay close to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, the Ritz-Carlton Grand Canal is a five-minute drive away.
  • Mid-Range Hotels :  Popular mid-range options along the Corniche are the Hilton Abu Dhabi, with its own private beach club, about a 15-minute walk from Marina Mall and Heritage Village, and the Sheraton Abu Dhabi Hotel & Resort, with large sparkling pools and a sandy lagoon. The Holiday Inn is another highly-rated mid-range option a short drive from the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.
  • Budget Hotels :  Budget accommodation is difficult to find in Abu Dhabi, but many mid-range hotels offer steep discounts - especially during low season. If you're watching your wallet, the Mercure Abu Dhabi Centre Hotel offers excellent value in the heart of the city, just a few minutes' stroll from the Corniche. Also in the city center, the Al Diar Dana is a popular budget option. On Yas Island, the Centro Yas Island Abu Dhabi by Rotana is reasonably-priced and lies within easy access of Ferrari World and Waterworld, the island's famous theme parks.


Places to visit around Abu Dhabi

The oasis city of Al Ain has a dramatic setting, overlooked by the craggy mountain range of Jebel Hafeet. It's a pretty and ordered town that is easy to get around and is popular with visiting families for its zoo and many relaxing public parks. Historically, Al Ain has been settled since at least 3000 BC, and the museum here does a good job of tracing that long history. It's this history that has made the Al Ain area the only site in the United Arab Emirates to be inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List.
This is also an excellent destination for tourists interested in local culture. Top things to do include excursions to the camel market and regular camel racing events. Those with an adventurous streak will enjoy a four-wheel-drive trip up to Jebel Hafeet's summit or a day spent among the wave pools and white water rafting facilities of Wadi Adventure waterpark.


Rent a car in or near Jebel Hafeet

If you're looking for panoramic photos over the city and surrounding desert then a trip to the summit should be at the top of your sightseeing list.

The drive up here, following a winding mountain road, has plenty of scenic viewpoints, and from the summit, the entire region is spread out beneath you.

There is a particularly interesting ethnographic section reflecting the daily life of the region's people, with a reconstructed traditional majlis and exhibits of traditional garments and Bedouin jewelry. In the archaeological section are displays of local artifact discoveries, which date back to the Bronze and Iron Ages, including pendants and an important coin collection.

Car rental services in or near Camel market

Al Ain's camel market is an excellent chance for travelers to experience a taste of traditional local culture.

This is the last remaining camel market in the United Arab Emirates, and people from across the region head here to buy and sell. You are free to wander around at will and watch people bartering over the camels; don't take any notice of men who may approach you on entering and insist that you need a guide.

Where to Stay in Al Ain for Sightseeing

For first-time visitors to Al Ain, the best place to stay is in the city center, close to top attractions such as the Sheikh Zayed Palace Museum, the Al Jahili Fort, and the Al Ain Zoo. The main sights are spread out over a large area, so it's best to explore the city by car. Here are some highly-rated hotels in convenient and central locations :

  • Luxury Hotels : Close to the Sheikh Zayed Palace Museum and the Al Jahili Fort, the family-friendly Al Ain Rotana Hotel is one of the city's top hotels, with a spa, swimming pool, fitness club, and on-site restaurants. Other popular upscale options are the Ayla Hotel, in the center of Al Ain, four minutes by car to Al Jahili Fort, and the Hili Rayhaan by Rotana, in a quiet location next to the Hili Mall, about 12 minutes drive to the fort.
  • Mid-Range Hotels :  At the top end of the mid-range hotels, the Hilton Al Ain is packed with facilities, about five minutes by car from Al Ain Mall and a short drive from other top attractions. Across from the new Safeer Mall, about 11 minutes' drive north of Al Jahili Fort, Asfar Resorts Al Ain is a popular mid-range option - especially for families, thanks to its contemporary one- and two-bedroom villas with full kitchens. Dana Al Ain Resort is also in a central location, about a 13-minute drive from the zoo and around the same distance to the camel souk. Shoppers can drive to Al Ain Mall from here in about eight minutes.
  • Budget Hotels : Al Ain has limited budget options, but two hotels offer relatively cheaper rates that reflect their basic facilities. About ten minutes from Al Ain Zoo and the same distance from Jebel Hafeet Mountain, Ain Al Faida One to One Hotel and Resort offers hotel rooms as well as single and double villas, while the Al Massa Hotel lies in the heart of the city, a nine-minute drive from the camel souk.
