Driving in the UAE

by gemco

Hi there
I am visiting for a month from the middle of December can anyone suggest a reputable car hire firm? just want a small economy car really. Is it ok to take hires cars to other Emirates and I have heard horror stories about driving out there but is it really as bad as people say? Any worse than Paris or London for example?
Advice much appreciated

The traffic in Dubai is quite intense-but cannot be worse than most big cities.
Taking a hire car out of Dubai can be problamatic- the car hire companies want you to pay a HUGE insurance premium (extra)for that, if they allow it. We recently tried to do that, and were engulfed in red tape. We gave up, used a taxi to get to Oman, where its possible to hire a car (for Oman)

Hi there,
I suggest you hire a car from a reliable company such as AVIS. They do provide all the required emergency assistance when needed and have a strong back up system.
Good luck.

Yes.Avis is a great company- BUT they will not allow their hire cars out Dubai. Read my reply.

Lynn,
I think you meant out of UAE. AVIS is a big company with centers in all Emirates as far as I know!!

Re: Driving in the UAE

by colin_bramso

You're right Amir, there's no problem with hire cars going anywhere in the UAE. If you want to go across the international border to Oman you need to get additional insurance.

I agree that one of the big international companies is the best choice - Avis, Budget etc.

As for driving in Dubai,the original city is very much smaller than Paris/London so IMO it's not as difficult. Once you're out of the old city into New Dubai there's much less traffic except for commuter peak times on the main roads. Driving is much safer than it was a couple of years ago, because of lower speed limits, better policing and the fact that with all the additional roads/interchanges the traffic flows better so drivers are less frustrated and aggressive.

Driving is dangerous, depending on what kind of Standards you are used to! It's a lot better than a few years ago abut it's not actually the volume of traffic that's the problem: it's people driving at high speed, and changing lanes erratically. Have your wits about you, and always expect that other drivers either don't see you, or simply don't care that you're there!

Re: Driving in the UAE

by mailmevee

Hi there,

The good car hire firm would be "Letsdrive rent a car " and there is no issue on driving to other emirates as long as u have a valid id and license.Mail me at mailmee9@rediffmail.com if you require any help regarding travel out here! :)

Travel Tips for Dubai

National Flag of the United Arab Emirates

by xuessium

The flag contains colours usually associated with the Islamic world. The flag consists of three equally sized horizontal stripes with a red vertical stripe on the left side of the flag. The horizontal stripes are from top to bottom, green, white and black.

It is believed to be based on the Arab Revolt Flag which was created in 1916, and flown by Arab nationalists during their liberation struggle against Ottoman (Turkish) rule. Red, white, black and green are called the pan-Arab colors and have been historically linked to the Arab people and Islamic faith for centuries. They stand for Arab unity and independence and can be seen in the flags of many countries in the region. The UAE was created when seven "Sheikdoms" (the rulers of the 7 entities are "Sheikhs", rather than "Emirs" despite the country's name) in the middle-east joined to form one country on 2 Dec 1971. They were formerly called "The Trucial States".

The 7 entities are: Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Fujairah, Ras al-Khaimah & Umm al-Qaiwain.

Abu Dhabi is the biggest of the 7 "Emirates" and by default, its ruler is the President of the country. Dubai, rich from commercial wealth, holds the Prime Minister post. All the rulers rule the country through a ruler council.

Heads up! A few "do's"

by Quero

Do:

1) Keep the soles of your feet/shoes tucked away or aimed downwards. It is considered offensive to expose the bottoms of your feet to another person.

2) Stay indoors while drinking any alcoholic beverage. In addition to being a serious sin in Islam to drink alcohol, it is also unlawful to drink in public, such as on a beach or in the street.

3) If your visit coincides with Ramadhan, smoke, drink (even water) and eat only in private or enclosed areas, and never in the presence of someone who is fasting. Once the sun sets, you may indulge. This also includes gum chewing and chewing tobacco. All restaurants are closed in the daytime hours.

4) Be careful of where you aim your camera. You must not take photos of government installations, military or otherwise; and avoid taking pictures of local Arab women unless you have thier consent.

5) Use only your right hand to greet people, hand money to a merchant, or eat. The left hand is reserved for cleansing the private parts and is considered unsanitary.

STELLA ARTOIS MOVIE OF THE WEEK - INDIE HEAVEN

by Siddha3th

Bollywood love triangles. Hollywood endings. Enough to make you weep into your popcorn. Thankfully, the guys at 9714 Entertainment & Front Row Productions have conspired to infiltrate Dubai's notoriously mainstream tastes, infusing it with a shockingly alternative dose of film.

The Stella Artois Monday Movie of the week is held every Monday (imagine!) at iBO, the gritty club which doubles up as a make-shift screening venue. Comfy sofas, an interesting, interested crowd, and of course, loads of Stella Artois.

This has been a godsend for me, sating my cravings for Almodovar, Scorsese and in the days to come, even Fellini :) To watch films like Bad Education, uncensored and uninhibited, in Dubai - is something of a minor miracle. It's very much an underground thing still, and God bless these guys for it.

I.T. - HiFi - Audio - Video - everything's here!

by JessH about COMPUTER PLAZA / Al Ain Centre

Dubai has always been known as a great shopping destination for all you "tekkies" out there; the electronics market has had a chequered evolution in the Emirates. In the initial stages there was a substantial domestic demand for products such as TVs, Hi-Fi systems, VCRs, radios, etc.

We, the general public, have developed the habit of changing the names of streets, buildings, etc. in Dubai.
Alas, the Al Ain Centre is more widely known as "Computer Plaza" which is the largest specialized shopping centre selling hardware, computer systems, information technology and related services.
The nearby Khalid bin Waleed Road is better known as "Bank Street" (just some helpful pointers when talking to your respective taxi driver)

If you can't find what you're looking for in here, you can also try the Electronics Souk on Fahidi Street (Bur Dubai) or PlugIns Electronix.

There's also a small internet cafe in the lobby of the mall, as well as various small restaurants serving Chinese, Mexican and Arabic food (as well as a Baskin Robbins). Electronics has always been one of Dubai's greatest attractions for the shopper & tourist alike. Whatever it is you are looking for - from a nifty personal CD player and the most sophisticated component system to snazzy camcorders and projection television sets - chances are you will find the right product to satisfy all your needs.

Electronic giants such as Sony, Aiwa, Citizen and Brother are some of the big companies that have already established assembly facilities in Dubai to further boost the distribution of their products to African, CIS and Middle East markets.

NOTE: Due to increased demand in medium & high-end entertainment products, prices have shot-up considerably over the past few years. Electronics in Dubai no longer keep the promise of having the "cheapest prices", but good bargains can still be made nevertheless.
Haggling is possible to a certain extent, and only on certain products.

Opening Hours: Saturdays to Thursdays 10:00am - 10:00pm
Fridays: 04:00pm - 10:00pm

Taxi for everybody

by fareleira

Taxi in Dubai is to get easy and without waiting for a long time.
There's around 14.000 taxis in Dubai and it is cheap!
When you seat it starts with 3dirham( $0,8US) then it goes up half dirham every km.
Taxi drivers they are friendly and well behaved maybe they drive a bit to fast and they want all the road. Many of them talk bad english or it's hard to understand.
A big part of the cars are Toyota Camry with Air Condition
