Here's what you need to know about the popular pay-per-minute carshare

Dubai’s pay-per-hour car rental service made some major changes to its terms and conditions, and they have been very quiet about it.

It's already one of the most popular car services among UAE residents, but if you're not aware of the new rules, you may end up paying additional fares or even fines.

 So here are the latest changes in fares and prices: 

  1. If you book the car for a specific amount of time and do not return it within the allotted time period, you will get charged Dhs8 as a penalty.
  2. The new system by default has enabled a comprehensive coverage, which will add Dhs5 to the trip (even if you use it for just 5 minutes).
  3. If you cover more than 30 kilometres in an hour, you will be charged 50 fils for every additional kilometre; so you are now paying by distance and time. 

So there you have it.
