A refundable security deposit is required by the car rental agency, mainly, incase of RTA fines, damage to the car (if not covered by insurance) and car theft. The amount is held for upto 25 days as RTA / Police fine reports are sometimes delayed.
Security deposit is essential in the UAE, mainly for RTA traffic fines. If you do not want to put down a security deposit, opt for a preauthorization block by your credit card. This way the amount is simply blocked instead of a transaction. The blocked amount is automatically released 21-30 days after you return the rental car..
If you have a new driving license that's less than six months old, please check with the car rental agent as the requirement varies based on the insurance policy of the respective car. Some are available for new driving license holders at a higher security deposit amount, with limited insurance coverage and liable for higher excess fee while others are only available with older licenses.
