All cars in our catalog are located in CARS24 hubs across the UAE, where we conduct our rigorous vehicle inspection process. Once you reserve any car online, we ship it to the hub closest to you or deliver it right to your doorstep.
If you've ever bought clothes or groceries online, you already know how this works! It's simple, and can be done in easy steps.
Absolutely. Every one of our cars has passed a 150+ point technical inspection and an RTA check, so they’re of perfect quality. What’s more, all our cars come with a complimentary service warranty of upto 6 months or 10,000 Kms, whichever is earlier. In addition, you have the option to purchase upto 24 months extended warranty.
All the prices are reasonable and competitive, assigned by experts after taking multiple factors into consideration. We factor in:
You will not feel the need to negotiate at all. You’ll see, all the prices are reasonable and competitive. We are 100% online, and hence save on expensive rental/staff costs, and so you save on those additional fees as well.

If you pick a car, here’s what you’ll find about it:
We replace the tyre if they do not meet the RTA approved passing standard. Spare tyres do not have the age limit of five years provided they are road-worthy as per RTA standards.
Not necessarily. As part of refurbishment, we undertake smart repainting to rectify scratches or dents of sizes exceeding our permissible standards to return the panel to its best condition.
After inspecting a car on 150+ parameters, depending on what is needed, we do whatever it takes to return it to its best condition! As a result, some of the body panels will undergo smart repainting.
All cars are inspected on 150+ parameters, during which we check the brake pads and discs. The same will be replaced if the thickness is below the vehicle manufacturer's guidelines.
Currently, there is no common online source to establish accident history nationally covering all emirates. We are unable to provide you with this information. We ensure that we do not buy any cars which have met with structural damage, and as part of our refurbishment, we re-inspect the vehicle thoroughly to ensure it is free from structural damage.
Structural damage refers to any damage to vehicle structural members such as, but not limited to chassis, body pillar frames, rear body member, rear body floor panel etc. Components such as front or rear bumper support / radiator cross member / fender apron panel are not considered as structural members and we confirm as part of our inspection process that damage to these components and consequent repairs have not impacted the structural integrity of the vehicle.
All our vehicles go through an inspection and the required periodic maintenance service is carried out. Service history is shared if provided by the previous owner with supporting evidence.
As part of periodic service, we perform the following:
Home Test Drive

Most of the banks have a minimum loan amount of AED 2500/- However the minimum loan amount offered by DIB is AED 15000/-.
CARS24 transactions are done completely online. You can make the payment through bank transfer, cheque, debit card, or credit card.
DBR is Debt Burden Ratio and is used to measure an individual’s ability to manage monthly payments and repay debts. It is calculated by dividing the total recurring monthly debt by gross monthly income, and it is expressed as a percentage. DBR is capped at 50% by the Central Bank of the UAE.

Yes! CARS24 will assist you with finance options for your car purchase through our partnered banks and other financial providers. Our Relationship Manager will coordinate with you post-booking and assist in applying for finance on your behalf. Do note however, financing approval depends on the banks' terms and conditions as well as your loan eligibility.
The bank will require the following types of documents for processing your loan:
Identity documents: Passport / Emirates ID/ Visa / Family Book for UAE nationals.
Income documents – Salary Certificates/ Bank Statement/ Audited financials (for self-employed individuals)
Every bank and type of loan will have different charges on availing the loan. However, a processing fee is payable across all banks, which will be 1% of the loan amount or 500 AED whichever is higher.
The maximum loan amount that can be applied for is AED 5,00,000/-
Interest rate is a rate that the bank charges on the loan availed by the customer, and is calculated on the full original loan amount for the whole term without taking into consideration the periodic payments. In other words, interest is charged on the full amount of the loan throughout its loan tenure.
The interest rate that the bank will charge will vary from 3.25% to 5.30% depending on your salary bracket, industry of work, and other factors.
Yes, most banks will give you the option of paying back your loan earlier, subject to applicable fee and terms agreed at the time of availing the loan. This is called “Early Settlement”.
Once you apply for a loan, the bank will assess your eligibility basis your monthly income, DBR and other factors, and finance upto 80% of the total vehicle cost, as mandated by the central bank of UAE.
If you require a loan to buy that dream car, our Relationship Manager will help connect you with multiple banks that offer loan facilities. The basic requirements for loan eligibility are a regular income and a resident visa. Get started on this process here!
You will need the following documents at the time of purchase:
For Full Payment:
Financing entails a lot of documentation requirements. For you to not have to worry about this at all, for a small fee CARS24 will ensure creation and submission of documents like the valuation certificate and loan quotation. We will take care of the entire process once you select Financing as your payment mode and will help expedite the entire process with minimal documentation, only what is absolutely essential.
No, it will not be possible to get this fee financed. You will need to pay this small fee along with a down payment.
Only RTA charges shall have to be paid for registering the car in your name.
No, it will not be possible to get this financed. You will need to pay this registration fee along with a Down Payment (in case of financing) and Balance Payment (in case of full payment).
Yes, for sure. If, for any reason, you want to return the car under the 7 day return policy, we will refund you the entire registration fee along with the Balance amount refund post deregistration of the car.
Before you hit the road on your newly purchased car, it is mandatory to have a car insurance cover as per the UAE RTA law. But don’t worry, we have you covered. We will ensure that you have access to a variety of good quality, reputed and affordable insurance plans at discounted rates, and we will handle all the paperwork to get the policy issued for you by the date of delivery.
We have tied up with reputed insurance aggregators to get you a variety of plans at discounted prices. We have tried to ensure that we give you multiple options depending upon the car, your choice of the payment mode and your price range preference. You can choose from takaful / conventional plans, agency repair / non-agency repairs, comprehensive / third party covers.
Takaful, also called Islamic insurance, is a system of cooperative insurance. Please note that it is not just for Muslims and is open to non-Muslims who prefer to subscribe to and receive Takaful benefits. While the ultimate safeguard provided to the insured person under a takaful insurance is similar to that provided under a conventional insurance, a takaful agreement is Sharia-compliant. You are free to choose a takaful policy for any kind of deal, however if you are availing a loan from an Islamic Bank, then it would be mandatory for you to select takaful.
Insurance covers with agency repairs are only available for cars that are within 2 years of their manufacturing date.
It sure does! A third party cover can be opted for only if you have selected Full payment as your payment method. In case you change your payment mode to Financing, you will accordingly need to change the insurance plan to a comprehensive plan. Similarly, if you are availing financing from a Islamic bank, you must choose a takaful plan.
You will be able to change the insurance plan that you selected only until the required documents have been verified. As soon as the documents are verified, your selected insurance plan becomes a part of the loan application (in financing cases) and the insurer starts processing your selection so that your car is insured by the time it is delivered (in full payment cases), and hence it will not be possible to change the plan post this stage. Please ensure to go through all the details of the available plans as soon as you pay the token, and discuss them with your Relationship Manager to make an informed decision.
You will be asked to make the payment for your chosen insurance policy to the insurance broker directly via a separate payment link at the same time when making the (full or down) payment of the car to CARS24. Please note that if you are getting a loan for your car, you will have the option to finance your insurance plan as well. However, you will still need to make a payment to the insurance broker on a separate payment link. The insurance amount will get deducted from the down payment amount. Once successfully paid for, you will receive an invoice from the insurance provider.
You can directly reach out to the insurance provider on the customer care number / email provided by them in the policy document to make any claims.
Should you wish to return your car within the 7 day return period, we will assist you to cancel the insurance policy on the car. We will assist with the refund of the policy amount paid to the insurance provider upon policy purchase, subject to the insurance provider's terms and conditions. Please note that as per UAE laws, there could be cancellation charges levied by the insurance provider which will be mentioned in the policy document.
Tinting blocks heat to protect the interiors, provides UV protection, reduces glare and reduces fuel consumption due to lesser requirement of air conditioning. It also adds style and gives you privacy. The maximum darkness permitted by the UAE government is 50%, so we have put together a bunch of options for you to choose from within the permitted standards.
We are sure that you would want your dream car to look new and shiny for long! Paint protection provides some invisible protection against scratches and chemicals, and repels environmental damages. It will help you retain the car’s resale value.
CARS24 has tied up with top brands to bring you the best deals for tinting and paint protection. You will have various options to choose from and at heavily discounted prices. The best part is that you can get your Value Added Services purchase financed along with the car.
You have an option to select or change the Value Added Services offered by CARS24 until your documents are verified.
The cost of tinting and paint protection will also be financed by the banks. Down payment (in case of financing) or balance payment (in case of full payment) will happen later in the process after the documents are approved and, if applicable, the LPO is approved.
We will start working on the car immediately after you make the down payment (in case of financing) and balance payment (in case of full payment) to wrap up your car in the purchased Value Added Services. It should not take us more than a few hours to complete this and we don’t foresee any delays in delivery due to this, so you shouldn’t worry.
Definitely! If you are getting your car financed, the price of the Value Added Services can be included in the loan quotation and you can get it financed alongside the car. It’s as simple as that.
Every brand and option may have a specific warranty attached to it, and we will specify the warranty along with the service details. You can discuss these details with your Relationship Manager to make an informed decision.
You can send an email to [email protected] Our team will help you with any query or request you might want to raise.
Since tinting and paint protection are consumables, there will be no refund for the Value Added Services if the car is returned.
After the purchase process is complete, our Relationship Manager will call you to confirm your delivery and pick up details.
Our CARS24 Delivery Associate will meet you at the delivery time, verify your Emirates ID, get the delivery receipt signed, and hand over the car, keys, and the documents.
You’ll be needed for this! You will have to present at the time of car delivery or pickup and present your Emirates ID for verification.
