6.8 Good25 Oct. 2016
Kayak didn't support their salesAt pick-up I was given a Seat Ibiza as an equivalent to the Kia Rio I reserved. It was not equal. It was very deficient, not the same class as the Rio. I reported this to Sixt Rent a Car and when they receive a Kia Rio a few days later switched the cars for me. The Kia Rio I received was very nice.When I reserved the car with Kayak I declined the collision damage waiver insurance. When I picked the car up Sixt made me purchase the insurance to get the car. I was stuck so I had to agree. I reported this to Kayak and they basically told me that Sixt could add any charges they wanted no matter what my contract with Kayak said. I want the 620 QAR I paid for insurance refunded to me. Kayak appears to be only a broker that provides no follow-up service. I will never use them again unless they cam refund my insurance payment.

Car hire excess insurance in Doha

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Doha car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Doha.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Doha car rental.

Top tips for hiring a car in Doha

  • Car hire in Doha makes a lot of sense, as a lot of the city infrastructure is built around cars and there are many locations that are much easier to get to if you have a vehicle. Because of the intense heat, walking is not very pleasant, and the bus and rail system can only take you to certain areas in most cases. Hiring a car can mean the difference between a pleasant stay and a sweaty, hassle-filled nightmare.
  • If you are considering car hire in Doha, several car hire agencies have counters at the Ground Transportation Centre, opposite the passenger terminal, at Doha Hamad International Airport (DOH). There are a large number of Qatari and international hire agencies to choose from offering a large range of vehicles and options for Doha car hire. If you hire a car online before arrival, several agencies will send a representative to pick you up from the terminal and take you to your car.
  • When considering car hire in Doha, remember that Qatar drives on the right-hand side, so motorists from Australia or Britain should take note of this. Driving in Doha is generally straightforward. There are strict rules on seatbelt use, using only hands-free phones while driving and obeying traffic signals that will be fairly familiar to most drivers from other countries. Penalties for breaking the rules, however, can be stiff. Most drivers will need an international driver’s licence, and you should keep your documentation on you at all times. Camels are a common sight in Doha, even in the city, and you should keep an eye out to avoid hitting them (they do not all have good road sense). Be aware that many of the roads around Doha are toll roads.
  • Doha is very much a "car city" and there are few major difficulties involved with driving. Be aware that many Qatari drivers can be impatient in traffic, especially at red lights, and may use the horn a lot. You should avoid any kind of altercation or rude gestures directed at other drivers. Camels can sometimes also pose a hazard, as they can turn up in unexpected places; you should maintain a good sense of situational awareness to avoid collisions.
