Motor Scooter Rental

by yvr

Have googled on line to try and find an answer and had no luck. Are there any motor scooter rental busniess in Dubai? If so, does one need a special license or is a motorcycle license from the home country legal? Any other information regarding the rental of a motor scooter is appreciated.

The WHO publishes a report on the most dangerous countries in the world to drive. While African countries dominate the list, the UAE ranks #9 with 37.1 fatalities per 100,000 people. It is certainly not a place where a tourist should be putting around on a scooter.

Well then I guess that would include automobliles, bicycles, rollerblades or any other form of transportation when it comes to road driving. If I let every article about every country that was negative influence my decisions to go/do anywhere, guess I would be hiding under my bed.

It was not a cautionary tale on why you shouldn't do it. It was an explanation on why locals wouldn't be stupid enough to accept the responsibility to hire them out.

I've never seen a scooter in Dubai. The two-wheelers are big bikes like Harleys etc. and I think there are one of two places that rent them. An e-mail to the Harley dealer would probably get you info about them ( www.harley-davidson.ae )

For car rental you need an international driving licence and I guess it would be the same for motorcycles.

Re: Motor Scooter Rental

I've just checked the Harley website and they rent bikes, it says from AED400 a day.

For licence they say: "Valid AAA International motorcycle permit required (if you are here on a visit visa), credit card (Mastercard/Visa) and original passport."

After having driven in Dubai for the past 12 years, I agree with Colin and fluffbunny: have never seen a scooter here in all these years, and quite frankly I think this would be suicide. It's even rare to see motorcycles (mostly only driven by delivery boys).

Thanks Colin, appreciate your effort.

Souks

by solopes

In Muslim countries life concentrates around the commercial areas, traditionally named souks. Dubai, in its dual image is no exception - modernity lives in giant malls, but the spirit of the people is still present in the old souks. Smaller than many other (Hurrah, something small in Dubai!) the ambiance is real and bargaining stills rules. Spices, clothes or gold, each one has its area.

Photographing Emirates Towers - Different Angles

by kuwait_david

Avoid the usual angle fhat everyone has of pictures of the Emirates Towers from Sheikh Zayed Road by parking round the back of the towers before walking up to the Mosaico Terrace which is right underneath the two towers. The angles of the towers from here gets you amazing shots. The best time of day to go is around 1pm when the light is on both towers.

Chinese goods galore

by uglyscot about Dragon Mart

Dragon Mart is a collection of shops with Chinese goods- toys, bags, building materials, clothes, soft furnishings etc
The complex is housed under like roofs with typical red Chinese lanterns hanging down. There are so many shops with similar goods in the same area.
There are kioskd in the centre of each area selling popcorn or coffee or waffles. There are not enough seats though and on a Friday the mart is packed with people and workers pushing trolleys. It is atmospheric. In the mart, we were looking for bed sheets, There were beautiful soft cotton sheets in self colours [yellow, beige, rose blue, white.Also beautiful duvets, but we were not interested in them. Some of the sheets were delicately embroidered. Reasonable prices, but bargaining was not successful, They kept saying 'final price' without reducing at all.
We paid 50 dhs for a Queen sized flat sheet and 30 for a fitted sheet.
