• Car Rental 

You can either rent the car at the airport or from different locations located throughout the city. You can a small new car from about 150 Dhs for one day. Longer rental periods will usually get a better daily rate.

In order to rent a car UAE residents need to show their UAE driving license. Foreign visitors must have an International Driving Permit and submit a copy of their passport and visa.

Gas/petrol prices are low because the UAE is an oil-producing country. If you are driving your rental car to Dubai, you must ensure the car has a SALIK (road toll) tag. You will be billed for the amount of the tolls due when you return the car to the rental company.

  • Taxis

There are several types of taxis. The gold and white taxis are the cheapest. The silver ones are a little dearer. These can be flagged down anywhere and charge is calculatd by meter. The most expensive are the limousines that are booked by phone or from a hotel.

Consider getting around by bus - see the section on Public Transport for further details.
