Amazon has launched online car rental services through its Amazon Home Services in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for customers in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Ajman, and Ras Al Khaimah.
Amazon’s online car rental service features a range of service providers offering multiple automotive brands with SUVs, hatchbacks, and sedan options for customers, according to the company.
Available for rental periods starting from one day to one month, all car rentals made through Amazon Home Services are delivered directly to the selected address as early as three hours from the time of booking. Each rental includes the full rental duration, delivery, and collection fees of the selected car and third-party auto insurance, with no security deposit required – with rates as low as AED 44 per day, according to the company.
To use the service, customers can click on “Automotive Services” on the Amazon Home Services website or search for “Car Rental Service” on Amazon.ae. The selected car rental service provider will reach out to customers to request a copy of their Emirates ID, driver’s license, passport visa page, and credit card to secure their bookings.
“We launched Amazon Home Services last year to give customers in the UAE a simple way to book services from handpicked, locally-based service providers with the same ease as purchasing products from Amazon.ae,” said Amine Mamlouk, Amazon Middle East and North Africa executive. “We are continuously innovating on behalf of our customers, and the launch of online car rental services via Amazon Home Services gives them an alternative option to traditional car hire, eliminating the hassle of queuing, having to travel to get their rental car, or paying a hefty security deposit. Within a couple of steps and a short three-hour wait time, customers can have the car of their choice delivered directly to their doorstep, all from the comfort of their own home.”
