Dubai Taxi

Top ways to experience Dubai Taxi and nearby attractions

The area
Neighbourhood: Al Quoz
Al Quoz sits literally at the halfway point between old and new Dubai. At first sight it has little to recommend it: warehouses and factories dominate the area, with some residential areas on the outskirts. Heavy goods vehicles roar up and down the roads and laborers stop at small hole-in-the-wall cafes for a cheap lunch. But it is fast becoming a magnet for art lovers: Alserkal Avenue is a significant contemporary art hub, home to 25 galleries and arts spaces, with ambitious expansion plans. The galleries host exhibitions, talks, panel discussions, auctions, and community events. If you love art, pass by to visit the galleries, it’s a great opportunity to get a sense of art and community in the region and to sit alongside key influencers and artists as they go about their day.

    Safe and reliable taxi services in Dubai
    Taxi showed up within minutes of online booking. Polite, friendly, reliable drivers. Did all sightseeing taking taxi through Careem app. Bit expensive than railroad but worth it. It’s safe taking taxi even after midnight.

    No issues, every trip was good. Will use again.
    Starting valve on the taxi meter was 25dr before we set off from Dubai airport which tells me the price is increased for the airport because every other Dubai taxi started at 5dr. Cars are clean, most drivers are great and helpful, some chatty. We found that Dubai Taxis were mostly cheaper than Ubers for the same journey so I need to download their app. Definitely recommend 100%. Top marks. As in all taxis make sure the ID is correct and the incar display shows the fare, we never had a problem and have lost count of the trips we have used them for.

    what will they do with all these drivers
    On traveling through Dubai our driver was telling us that they go driverless next month. we thought he was joking until we seen a recording on his phone that was taken during a trial . so we said how does it work if you said i am leaving Grosvenor House hotel going to emirates golf club then decided that once in the taxi you want to go to the Creek golf club only an example you must go to your1st pick then re book so he told us. seems odd but true

    Good company to use
    We were advised to use this taxi company by the hotel and we found them really good and the prices were competitive with Ubers. Most of the drivers are keen to talk and our first ride in Dubai from the airport to the Dubai Mall our driver pointed out lots of places of interest. We found them good and a lot were able to cater for 7 people. Would recommend this company.

    Dubai taxi service - eft payment
    We had read the forum on taxi's saying their credit card machine is not working and today we experienced it as we departed the Resilient Lady side at terminal B. Turns out our driver told us that taxi's must have a working eft machine or they are not supposed to operate. Also they can not refuse a fare, as it is a $500 durum fine and risk of dismissal if repeated offence. Turns out our initial taxi wanted a longer fare.

    One of the most efficient ways to get around Dubai.
    Never had a bad experience to date. It all depends on how we interact with the driver. Except for their change over time sometimes they refused to take you, otherwise never been told a NO. Decent cars and many modes of payment. Always know the areas and if not they offer their phone to use Google maps. Will recommend and to avoid illegal taxis roaming around.

The worst experience with a taxi service ever!! The driver ignored my request to change location and took me to another location. He insisted that he was taking me to where I wanted to go but had to take the long way to avoid ‘damaged’ areas from the storm. Half way I asked him to change location and showed him on my app where I needed to go. He ignored me again. Then eventually took me to my location and charged me double. He never said I was being charged again, didn’t ask for money but later I got a notification on my phone!! They charged me without letting me know! How could that happen? Really bad service and worse costume service.

They charged me much more than the estimated amount and that was due to driver false. I was said by careem team that i will be refunded for the extra amount i paid but this never happened. Apart from that, one day i was charged with an amount for no reason. This day I was in my home country where there is no careem service. I asked for explanations but i never heard back from them. It's been a month now, I am sending emails to the help team without getting any response.

Avoid it by all means! Better get a normal taxi driver

This morning, I booked a Careem ride, but I didn't get any rides. Suddenly, a driver from Careem approached me for a taxi ride. He pretended to be a local taxi driver. I took his car to my destination at DIFC Metro station. However, during the journey, he received multiple calls from other passengers. When I asked if he was from Careem, he refused to answer. The driver was very arrogant and drove aggressively, even using inappropriate language. Additionally, he took longer routes than necessary. When I questioned him about the routes, he simply said he didn't know the way. This whole experience was extremely dissatisfying and shocking. I will be lodging a complaint with the Dubai authorities regarding this behavior. The car number was 7164.

Worst service ever, especially if you book " Comfort". The drivers don't have a clue how to arrive to any address even if they have apps and Internet available, just fooling around and waisting your time in order for you to cancel the ride, is unacceptable.
Even you send them the Google maps location and keep calling them is useless.

+971555386464 His phone, the worst service ever, and he didn't even pick me up.

On the 20th of March 2024, around 22:45, we took an Al Salaam taxi from "La Perla" to Ramada hotel in JBR, covering a mere 22 km. Despite no traffic congestion at that time, the driver charged us 150 AED (41 USD). Earlier that day, at 17:00, we paid just 60 AED (28 USD) for a taxi going in the same direction (from JBR to La Perle). Such price disparity is unacceptable, not only during Ramadan. I am deeply disappointed by this behavior in a Muslim country. One lesson learned: never board a taxi without a visible taxi label (limousine service) and agree on the fare upfront, avoiding reliance on the "Al Saalam Limousine" service. This incident tarnishes the reputation of the otherwise magnificent city of Dubai.

Never ever again. There was nobody to meet us. After 1 hour running around the arrival area we went to Emirates waiting hall. There was a very nice lady helping us and after nearly 45 minutes the driver came. Or so we thought. We followed him to a parking basement where he asked us to go into a car - not looking like our transport.

Then he went out of the car and locked the doors and left us inside the car. We could not get out. That was so nerve wracking. We were the only people in the parking area.
My daughter was about to get a panic attack.

Then an other man came back to the car and started driving. After driving for 10 minuts he asked where we were going!!!!!!!

My daughter was very cleaver and called the hotel and told them we were late because the driver didn’t know where to go or so he said.

Then all of a sudden the driver knew where to go - we really were scared - and we finally got to the hotel.

We will NEVER use them again if traveling only 2 Women.

So be aware!!!

Beware the Dubai taxis. They either speak no English or basically rip you off by taking you to the wrong destination and complaint it’s your fault. Or they claim no change to give you
