Ready to go: Fast Rent A CarÕs chauffeured fleet

For the best deals on wheels, whether in the UAE or elsewhere in the world, look no further than Fast Rent A Car, says marketing manager Katja Oldenburg.

The company is fully locally owned and is one of the leading car rental and leasing companies in the UAE, manned by a team of multinational professionals.

Its impressive fleet numbers more than 2,000, from small and mid-size vehicles to 'all-purpose' commercial vehicles, buses and an extensive luxury collection including the Peugeot 607, Mercedes E200, E240, S320, Volkswagen Beetle and limousines, all available for self-drive or chauffeur-driven.

"We provide the best deals on wheels with a vast range of options," Oldenburg asserts. "These include short or long-term rental, on a daily or weekly basis, short or long term commercial vehicle rentals, on daily, weekly or yearly basis, chauffeur services, bus services in capacities ranging from 9 to 65 seats, mini-leases on a monthly basis, and full service leases from 1 to 3 years with optional buy-back leasing."

"In addition to this Fast Rent A Car has mobile telephone rentals, and an exclusive limousine service and offers very special deals on weekend bus trips around the emirates," she adds.

The company also goes the extra mile to deliver, free of cost. "If you have no time to come to us, we will come to you," Oldenburg says.

Round-the-clock offices complement all this, at the arrivals lounges of Abu Dhabi and Dubai International Airports, for the benefit of visitors to the UAE.

For clients travelling abroad, Fast is equally prepared to ensure a smooth ride.

"Fast makes international car rentals easy to plan and provides price-guaranteed deals in more than 4,000 locations throughout the world, under its concept of one-stop-shopping," Oldenburg says.

"This is done," she adds, "through a link with Holiday Autos, one of the world's biggest operators with 4,000 locations. Under the deal, overseas vouchers can be issued instantly, and international driving licences arranged."

Fast Rent A Car is the official ground transport agent for three airlines - Gulf Air, British Airways and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines.

The company has set its sights on expanding throughout the GCC and is to link up with major GCC tour operators, according to Oldenburg.

"Fast Rent A Car has special deals throughout the year, tailor-made to customers needs, but we don't just rent cars, we are also, most importantly, able to keep our customers satisfied," she says.

The company's most popular cars are currently the all-new Peugeot 206, 306, 406 and 607 models. "Its high performance and safety features put the European product right up front," Oldenburg says.
