What the best way to get from the airport to hotel
I haven't been to dubai yet, going in September, but I've researched a lot on here(it's really useful, have a browse at some of the forum topics) and people recommend the cream coloured taxis as the best option. The taxis are quite cheap I believe.
The 'best' way? Uber Chopper/helicopter IMO 😉
The most practical way for most people is official RTA taxi from the stand. Cost effective, reliable, consistent and readily available at each terminal arrival. Generally well supervised - it's effectively a monpoly - and there's a range of options available to cover most people's needs.
Just be careful not to be persuafed by the hawkers offering 'limo service', as you'll likely pay 20-30+%more to travel in an unliveried Lexus or similarEdited: 13 June 2018, 20:37
Taxi at the airport exit, it is controlled by government, metered and no hassles. It is the cheapest and best option compared to higher grade taxis (Careem, for instance; or Uber) or hotel pick up.
Of late we are seeing most of the taxis are now fitted with working credit/debit card reading machines.
