A good news for all Dubai visitors-to-be is that taxi fares in this luxury city are very affordable. And you don’t have to bargain with the drivers because they always use the taxi meters.
Dubai taxis have tan bodies and color roofs (red/yellow/blue/green/pink) and you’ll see plenty of them plying the streets. The pink-colored cabs have female drivers and allow family and female passengers only.
You can easily catch a taxi in front of hotels and malls.
Taxi fares: AED 1.75/km (USD0.48). The required minimum amount of taxi fare is AED 12 (USD3.27). The fare for a short 10km trip will be no more than AED 17.5 (USD4.76).
Taxi hours: 24 hours
Note: If you want to save cost, then stay away from the hotel taxis and limousines. They can be expensive because they are not regulated by official rates.
