UAE car rental app to expand into Bahrain

 Selfdrive, a UAE-based car rental tech platform, is expanding its geographical footprint by launching in Qatar and Bahrain after Oman.

The company aims to acquire 50 to 65 per cent of the digital rental market share in these markets with seamless customer experience and range of product offerings through the app.

The app promises an easy ‘Search–Select–Pay’ process giving customers in the region access to more than 5,000 vehicles available on rent from one day to 36 months, which are delivered to their doorstep.

Subscription (micro-lease) and LeasePro (lease-to-own) features are also available.

“Our expansion into Bahrain and Qatar is testament to our growing popularity and success, and an indicator of the changing landscape of the automotive rental market in the region and beyond. We plan to add further new markets in the Middle East and are actively looking at other regions globally as business goes from strength to strength,” says Soham Shah, CEO of Selfdrive.

When it comes to user experience, Selfdrive employs Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology to customise the experience of every user depending on their preference of vehicle.

Selfdrive has plans to expand features in the app, with new functionalities on the cards for 2022.

The number of brands on the app continues to grow, collaborating with over 20+ automotive brands and their dealerships listed.

Selfdrive is now looking at Saudi and Kuwait markets.

Further plans are afoot to venture westward into the UK, Europe and the United States by the third and the fourth quarter of 2022.
