Transport in the UAE: Personal Experience
I would like to tell about the days of spent in Dubai. First, we used the local metro, which is much cheaper than using taxi services. It is more profitable to buy a silver card, payment upon exit from the subway. Even if the balance is negative (will squeak, but still miss you), you can replenish the bill in place. Remember the farther? The more expensive passage. In the subway, air conditioning is constantly working, the air freshener is fed, inside it is impossible to drink, there is, otherwise you will earn a fine 100 dirham.
About a taxi I want to say that they take for the landing of 3.5 dirham. Looking from Nasserist to Dubai Marina will cost you 65 dirham.
How to get from Dubai Airport to Madinat Jumeirah
about 60-70 dirham will cost a taxi, no less. (Course 1 dol = 3.6 DRC).
In general, of course, a lot depends on the taxi driver, since they are all on the meter. He can wind such circles that pay all 120. What they are very often doing. I already know the road well and keep up with them all the time, grazing to the Embassy of India and send home yoga to engage.
You can safely get from the airport to the subway to the stop of the Mall of Emirates, and from there Taxi is already 10 dirham worth. The subway will be ok too. 10 dirham in the usual car and can 13-15 in gold. The subway is very cool there, so if there is no extra money, use with pleasure.
From the subway you will need to either go to the mall to go out and there near the entrance or on parking will be a taxi, and yes, you can slow down. The only thing, do not go to the Mall himself, you need to go outdoor, but in the direction of Molla. Or a more convenient option, get out of the subway towards the sail (opposite Molla, will see, on the side there will be a turn on Juymeir), so that the turns are not overpaying. On the subway, the truth will go, probably from half an hour. All the same, the city is big, even more correctly, long.
Just in case, find out how much the hotel transfer will take. Madina Jumeiraira is a great place, it’s a pity, of course, that they have no metro station, but we always have ever traded to her.
Car rental in the UAE
Ordered in Moscow through the Rentalcars. Took Mitsubishi Lancer. Rent for 9 days stood 5 400 rubles.
Flew, passed customs, found the office of the company "DOLLAR RENT A CAR!". Deposit on the map was blocked by 1,000 Aed. Inspected the car, the paper signed and went. The car practically could not disperse, could ride no more than 80 km / h, and even with such a roar that the sound of the plane was just a whisper. We arrived at the hotel, wrote a letter to the Rentalcars. They answered promptly. Changed the car on another evening of the same day, arrived in the evening, the car was changed quickly, but for a detailed inspection time was little, so the car was photographed and removed the video .Damage and scratches were so much that on a sheet of inspection already putting down. I must say that our English is not ahti, so communication was more on the fingers.
We arrived to pass the car. While were in the office, a rental worker took the keys and gone. Came and calls us to the car. Shows chip at the very bottom on the front glass. As he found him, without a document about the inspection of the car, it is worth only to guess.
We arrive in Moscow, SMS notice comes that the company took another 2,500 award on the map blocked. Three days wrote to them letters. On the 4th send me a scan of the document I signed. It is clearly visible to the inscription about the windshield, made by another ballpoint handle and after my departure. Scammers and scoundrels.
Food and Exchanges at Dubai Airport
With a child at Dubai Airport
Dubai Airport is very large, you can wander long, but Mesto, because in essence there is nothing ..
There is a Duthich (and not struck my imagination or assortment, no prices), enough cafes, a small oasis with a pond and trees.
But there is no entertainment for children. I think it is a significant minus. Because even in the tiny airport, Doha has a children’s playground, which greatly casts the child waiting hours. But we did not suffer at all, t.To. The child found himself entertainment in the form of riding on moving ribbons, and they are in excess 🙂 You can still get to the frequency you need to get to your electric car, too, entertaining 🙂
