SUV’s have seen a stratospheric rise in popularity as domestic vehicles over the last decade, where once a 4x4 or SUV was rarely seen on the roads, not they account for the largest segment of new car sales and as we generally like to rent a vehicle similar to what we drive on a daily basis, it’s no surprise that SUV rentals in Dubai have equally ballooned in popularity. In fact, for a simple search we return in excess of 30 options for SUV and 4x4 rentals in Dubai, nearly double that of any other car category, including our cheapest rentals in the economy class. Such is the demand for Dubai SUV hire, we have the resources to meet that demand. It also means that prices are kept low as competition from the rental suppliers is strong in such a key market.
