As a parent, you know that traveling with a baby or small children is not as easy as traveling as a couple. There are so many things you need to think about, pack and take with you that your baby needs. In the end, you end up with so much luggage that you feel like you don’t even want to travel. What if I tell you that you don’t need to take all the equipment, especially the heavy ones with you and you can rent them at your destination? So if you would like to know whether you can hire baby equipment in Dubai, my answer is yes. Let’s have a look at what you can rent and where.
A baby stroller is probably number one on the list to make you think about whether you need to take it with you on your holiday. If you are spending your holiday in an all-inclusive resort and you are not moving out, probably not. However, if you are in Dubai, you need to walk from your hotel or Airbnb accommodation to the beach, to shops, and to other places you would like to see. Therefore the baby stroller is necessary.
However, you don’t need to bring it with you. In case you are staying in a hotel, check with them whether they are providing baby strollers to their guests. If not, you can hire a baby stroller from several places. For example, The Stroller Spa or Skytots are places where you choose the stroller online before your arrival, they will confirm whether it is available, you pay and then they will deliver it to you at the hotel, Airbnb, or airport. They will also pick it up at the end of your holiday. So easy.
Another option is to buy your own baby stroller in Dubai. There are many shops you can choose from. The biggest baby selections are in Dubai Mall, but also in the Mall of the Emirates. However, if you are looking for a cheap option, you can buy one in Carrefour.
In case you would like to use the baby stroller only at the airport or in the shopping malls, Dubai Mall, and Mall of the Emirates provide baby strollers for you. At the airport, there are complimentary strollers available. You can pick them up at Terminal 3 near the Emirates check-in and you will drop them at the boarding gate at the stroller park.
With a baby stroller, you can use the public metro, but try to avoid peak times when the metro gets full. For your convenience, there is a separate carriage on the Dubai metro for women and children only.
Almost all hotels provide baby cots upon request, so please check with them first. In case you are staying on Airbnb, and you need a baby cot, you can rent it from the same places as the baby stroller. The Stroller Spa and Skytots are providing clean and sanitized baby cots for you.
If you are planning to use a car to move around Dubai, you will need a car seat. A car seat is one thing you don’t want to take with you on a plane for your holiday. There are several options for you.
– You can hire a car seat from the companies like The Stroller Spa and Skytots. They provide car seats for babies, toddlers, and children.
– If you are renting a car in Dubai, the rentals car companies provide car seats for an extra cost
All other small amenities
There are other amenities that you may need for your baby during your holiday. You wouldn’t believe it, but these companies mentioned above are renting absolutely everything for your baby. Here are some products from different categories.

As you can see when you are coming to Dubai for holiday with your babies or children, you don’t need to take everything with you. Most of the things can be rented or even bought. You can enjoy a hassle-free holiday.
