RPM, a Dubai-based car rental company, announced three winners of a raffle with prizes exceeding Dhs660,000.

"We are pleased to announce the winners of valuable prizes that are the largest in the country," said Emirati businessman Mohammed Al Marzouqi, CEO of RPM Rent A Car.

He stated that the draw was organized in the presence of a large number of RBM clients and a representative from the Department of Economic Development, and was subject to the supervision of the Commercial Control and Consumer Protection Section of the Department.

UAE national Rashid Saeed Al Shehhi won the grand prize, cash worth Dh570,000, Shehab Ahmed Hussein, another UAE national won the second prize of Dh70,000, while Hamad Ahmed Al Yamahi won the third prize of Dh20,000.

Al Marzouqi stressed RPM's keenness to activate sales and promote products by organizing competitions and offering very valuable prizes to customers.

The CEO explained that the company is organizing this event for the fifth year in a row.

He noted that RPM Rent A Car offers the best rental cars of all kinds with 15 first-class brands.

Al Marzouqi indicated that the car rental sector has benefited strongly from the rapid recovery of the tourism sector in Dubai after the Covid-19 pandemic, and the return to normal life with great benefit from the rapid return from the lockdown. Additionally, Dubai Expo 2020, which lasted for 6 months, spurred growth in the travel and tourism sector in Dubai in particular and the UAE in general.

Al Marzouqi expected that momentum in the car rental sector would continue taking advantage of the economic growth in Dubai, thanks to the positive government initiatives that facilitate foreigners' access to long- and medium-term residency. Demand for car rental is experiencing a steady rise, driven by demand from foreigners and residents.
