Fancy driving around the city in style? ekar – the region’s budding car share operator – will make that happen after boosting its fleet of vehicles.
Customers can now choose from an impressive line of models like Mini-Cooper, Infiniti Q50 and Q70, Nissan Kicks and MG RX5 and ZS.
Launched in 2016, ekar is a pay-per-minute car rental service. It utilises flexible pricing structures to allow users to pay per minute, hour, daily or weekly depending on the driver’s needs.
Signing up is simple, the only requirement being the user’s driving license to be at least six months old. If the user has a home country driver’s license they can use ekar right away even if their UAE license is less than six months old.
UAE residents who want to register with ekar are required to submit the back and front copies of their Emirates ID and driving license.
For visiting tourists, the requirement is a valid passport copy and visa stamp page together with their international driver license.
