Conclusions

On the positive side:

  1. the site is much more convenient than that of competitors in this region
  2. the opportunity to rent a car for a day and for minutes, trips to various emirates
  3. minute and daily rates
  4. availability of free parking, free reservation
  5. website in English

From the negative:

  1. It’s not clear who fills the car and whether it’s paid for (not in the conditions, logically there should be free fuel).
  2. It is impossible to leave the car in another emirate.
