Dubai sim card

Hi all,

I am travelling to Dubai in November for a few days. I am also hiring a car and just need some data to drive around and just use the internet as and when i need it when not in wifi area.

Just wondering if anyone knows what the costs are like for simcards? i am literally in Dubai for like 4 days. 1GB would be more than enough.

Both Du and Etisalat offer visitor / tourist lines and a range of top ups on those to suit your needs. You can browse and see what fits your need but generally you can get a robust package below AED 150.

Have a look at Here We Go map app. Download the app itself and the UAE map when connected to wifi before you travel. You can then use it offline with no data. It’s great and has never let me down in Europe, US and Middle East. Have a try before you travel....
