Baby car seat - travelling in Dubai

Hi all - i am aware there is plenty of coverage on the forum about taxis and baby car seats, particularly relating to airport taxis. We are going in October and have a transfer arranged to the hotel. My question is more around advice you have on what tourists can do in terms of travelling around Dubai from your hotel with a baby if Taxi's don't generally have seats? We but would like to go out to the mall, green planet, the marina etc and not be confined only to the hotel.

I have seen the information about Careem taxis and also advice about renting a car (which i am not that keen on) and bringing your own seat. Any other suggestions?

Are there places at the malls or other attractions you can leave a car seat if we were to take one?

Careem kids comes with a car seat.

Otherwise there is no guarantee (just like in the UK) that a standard taxi will come with a car seat.

In most attractions and in the malls there are places to leave items. We always took our own car seat from home or when our son was older we took a travel booster seat from Mothercare as I recall

Not knowing the ages you are talking about, but working the baby seat I’m guessing small.

Can you borrow or look into one of the buggy seats that detached and the cradle part becomes a car seat. This way you will only have one buggy to take and it’s multi use whether you in the car or walking about.
