Budget drives or Ferrari for a day? Take to the roads in Dubai

Flashy: For the road trip of a lifetime and the ultimate UAE driving experience, choose a bling Ferrari. The Ferrari 458 Italia rents for Dhs7,000 a day at Park Lane Rental.

Adventure: If you’re more a rough-and-tumble kind of driver and have a UAE driving licence, opt for a 4x4 Ford Explorer for Dhs402 a day, including basic insurance. Drivers must be over 22 years old. Passport is required on registration, and there’s also a credit card deposit of Dhs1,500. Thrifty Rent-a-Car, firstname.lastname@example.org (800 46 94).
