US-based eCommerce giant Amazon has launched online car rental services through Amazon Home Services for UAE customers.
According to the company statement, “The online car rental service provided through Amazon.ae simplifies bookings and provides a variety of service providers offering numerous automotive brands with SUVs, Hatchbacks, and Sedan options for clients to pick from.”
“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. 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.”
All car rentals made through Amazon Home Services are delivered straight to the designated home as early as three hours from the time of booking by the service provider and are available for rental periods ranging from one day to one month.
The rental includes the full rental duration, delivery and collection expenses of the selected automobile, and third-party auto insurance, with no security deposit necessary, and it starts from as low as $11.98 (AED 44) per day.
As per the company, “In line with RTA and governmental guidelines, the car rental service provider selected through Amazon Home Services will reach out directly to customers to request a copy of their Emirates ID, driver’s license, passport visa page, and credit card to secure their bookings.”
