Dubai Airports puts car rental at your fingertips with rentalcars.com partnership

Dubai, UAE – March 17, 2015 –
Dubai Airports today announced that it has partnered with rentalcars.com, the world’s largest car rental booking platform, to provide passengers with an easy and cost effective way to rent a car directly from the Dubai Airports website, www.dubaiairports.ae.

The new multi-lingual service – available in English and Arabic – allows customers to browse and select rental options in over 160 countries and 28,000 locations. The page will also provide a list of car rental companies available at Dubai International and Al Maktoum International at Dubai World Central (DWC) and are conveniently linked to a map of the two airports. The service enables customers to book and pay online and collect their vehicles at their destination.

“This digital platform is aligned with our objective to engage with travellers directly, connecting them to commercial services on the ground at our airports. We look forward to working with rentalcars.com in providing this new service, the first of its kind in airports across the region,” said Eugene Barry, EVP Commercial at Dubai Airports.

Over the past year Dubai Airports has continued to expand its digital portfolio, launching a new website and associated mobile app – which allow passengers to personalise the information they receive – as well as a live chat service where passenger queries are answered in real-time.

“With Dubai Airports increasingly engaging their passengers online, this partnership creates an opportunity to deliver an enhanced service by serving a common customer from one platform. We are eager to begin this long-term, strategic partnership and to connect these passengers to high quality car rental services as part of a seamless customer journey,” said Peter Rooney, Marketing Director at rentalcars.com.
