Dubai airport has many facilities which are easily accessible by the passengers travelling to and from Dubai. Even if you are new to this place, you will hardly find any problem in travelling or reaching to your destination.
There are many official taxis available just outside of the arrival. You can hire the larger taxis if you are travelling in group or have many luggages, or you can hire the smaller taxis if you are not in a large group or are alone and have fewer luggages. The charge would off-course depend on which taxi you are hiring and where you are going.
If you are looking for a cheaper transportation, you can take Red Line, the Dubai metro which travels through Deira and Bur Dubai. The good thing about this service is that they have their stoppage on Terminal 1 and Terminal 3 of the International Airport.
The other cheap transport that is available is bus services which is again very economical and as all the buses are air-conditioned, they get you through your destination without letting you feel tired. You can also go for shuttle buses which are also fully air-conditioned and operate in every half an hour. The best parts of these buses are that they have Wi-Fi services, the cost of which is included in the fair.
Along with these transfer services, if you know driving and want to hire a car for the time you stay in Dubai, you can even pick up a car from Dubai International Airport. The only thing that you need to do while hiring a car is, produce a copy of your passport along with your international driving license and your credit card, and you will be good to go.
While driving, one thing that you need to keep in your mind is that, you will find toll gates on some main roads. Although you don’t need to pay to anyone in-person; however, when you return your car while going back, you will find the charges included in your final bill. They actually charge you through the electronic tag that is fitted on the windscreen of the car.
Before landing in Dubai, if you have already booked for a hotel, it is better to check with them if they have airport transfers included in their package. If they have, a hotel representative will be waiting in the arrival area holding a board bearing your name and they will safely escort you to the hotel.
