You can always choose the credit card authorization method as it is hassle-free.

It is always essential to drive a car with its valid registration. Check the original registration or the registration copy which is placed inside the car and be attentive to couple of things. The registration is for the same car you are renting. The registration date and insurance are still valid. Never rent a car where the registration has expired.
8- Permission to cross UAE border:
