Fetch your luggage, stroll out of Dubai Airport (DXB-Dubai Intl.), and pick up your rental car. Which one you jump into depends on where you’re venturing. If you’ll be primarily driving in downtown Sharjah, around 8 miles from the terminal, opt for something zippy and small. A compact car with good maneuverability will be perfect for those bustling city streets. But with loads of things to see, like the picturesque sandy shores of the surrounding region, you’ll probably be racking up a few miles. A bigger vehicle, like a full-size car or an SUV, will make lengthier road trips a joy.
