Private departure transfer in Dubai
Dubai is not a particularly pedestrian-friendly place, but it is still possible to navigate the city with relative ease.
Taxis are the most used form of transport and are very budget-friendly.
Public transport is air-conditioned and the hop-on hop-off bus is perfect for getting to all of the tourist destinations. Renting a car is also an easy way to get around town.

Types of transport: The Road and Transport Authority (RTA) runs the metro, buses, trams and water buses.
Paying for transport: A Nol card must be purchased before using public transport. Red tickets are great for tourists because they can be loaded with 10 trips or 5 daily passes. Red tickets cost AED2.00 and can be purchased at ticket offices and ticket vending machines at all metro and some bus stations. They can be used for any form of public transport and fares depend on the distance travelled.
Getting to and from the airport: Trains run every 10 minutes from terminals 1 and 3 into the city centre where they connect with more trains and buses. There are multiple bus routes that run from every terminal of Dubai International Airport into the city.
Best apps for getting around: The Wojhati Journey Planner app has walking directions to and from bus stops and stations, shares delay information, tracks your journey in real time and shows the next departures from stops around you.
Car rentals in Dubai are becoming increasingly popular. Driving in Dubai is much safer than it once was and getting around the city won’t be an issue.
Taxis: Taxi ranks can be found throughout the city at major shopping malls, the airport and outside of metro stations. Taxis can be pre-booked by calling the taxi company in advance.
Uber: Uber is available in Dubai and costs AED95.00-154.00 from Dubai International Airport to the city centre.
Get yourself from the airport to your accommodation with a simple and comfortable airport transfer.

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
