wrong information.

by anvd

the fare of taxis given on your site are old fares. new fares are as follows. the starting fare on taxis are AED 10, and no less. if u find a taxi who fares 3 dhs then do let me know ok? i would love to travel on it..

Re: wrong information.

by leics

I think you must have been reading a transport tip on the VT Dubai pages?

VT pages and tips are all written by individual members. If they were written some time ago then, of course, fares may be out of date (the tips all have a date on them).

Perhaps you could send a polite VTmail to the member who wrote the tip pointing out that the information is now wrong? They may be happy to change it.

Even better, why not make your own tips on your VT Dubai page? It's very easy. Click My Dashboard>'My Travel Pages'>Add a location to your travel map' to start.

Re: wrong information.

by wise23girl

Welcome to VT. Be an idea to email via VT the member whose tip is out of date or else write a new tip for your Dubai page. That would be helpful.

Re: wrong information.

by hawkhead

I think the information given in tips is correct 'at time of publication'. It stands to reason that prices go up over time, which is why it is advisable to note the date of the tip.....

Re: wrong information.

by JessH

Hello from Dubai!

Not sure about which tip about which VT member you mean, but I did actually just take a taxi again yesterday, and the starting fare was 3.50 Dhs (ok, so 50 fils more than you had read.)

These are the regular, metred taxis by the RTA (Dubai Taxi, Metro Taxi, Cars Taxi, etc.)

From Dubai Airport, the starting fare is 20 Dhs... but I've never seen a starting fare of 10 Dhs... perhaps one of the 5-star hotel's own taxi fleet?

Hi, welcome to VT.

As the others have said, you need to check how VT works because putting your comment here not only breaks the Forum rules but is pointless.

You're also wrong in what you say, the flag fall for a taxi flagged down on the street is still Dh3, not Dh10. Ten dirhams is the minimum fare, not flagfall, which was recently introduced.

Re: wrong information.

by colin_bramso

G'day Jess - nice photo of you in Gulf News today :-)

Re: wrong information.

by colin_bramso

Jess, you're right. I've just checked the RTA website and they've added 50 fils to the flagfall (sneakily, without telling anyone!) It's now Dh3.50 as you said.

Re: wrong information.

by colin_bramso

Apologies to the RTA! I've read it more carefully and the price goes up at night, between 10pm and 6am. The street hire flagfall of Dh3.50 is for that period.

Re: wrong information.

by JessH

Hi Colin, thanks :-) Old picture.....

Ah yes, 10 Dhs is the minimum fare you need to pay, no matter how short the distance.

Re: wrong information.

by Hyderabad

Have been following these posts and wish to provide some information having lived here for 17 years. The meters start from AED.3.50 but the minimum fare payable is AED.10.00 which means that even if you travel a short distance and the your fare totals say 7/- you have to cough up a Dhs.10/- fare. Trust this clarifies some of the doubts.

Travel Tips for Dubai

Sheik Zayed

by EmilianoCV

Sheik Zayed (died in 2004) is the prominent leader of this youth nation. He actually "invented" the UAE. His vision and sense of opportunity created a successfull nation and a safe and modern place to live.

He used to say "Impossible is a word that does not exist in our dictionary". And that is true. In the UAE you will find men "fighting" against nature, men creating and constructing "impossible" things. In the UAE, everything would be said a challenge to nature and adversity.

dubai kitesurf

by dukitebeach

Dubai kitesurfing is the most active kitesurf spot in the Midle east. Located at 100 meter from the only 7 star hotel in the world.
Most of the kiter ride from that spot to ride to the world island or the palm island. From Jumierah road turn right from Saga world, the spot is easy to recognized.

Gold & Diamond Park

by sue_stone about Gold & Diamond Park

The Gold & Diamond Park is not actually a park, but a shopping centre with more than 100 shops that just sell gold, diamonds and other jewellery. It is a girls paradise....and their husband's worst nightmare! It is located off Sheikh Zayed Road, close to the Mall of Emirates.

I was in the market for a new diamond ring. Whilst researching diamond shopping in Dubai prior to our trip I read numerous reviews about one shop in the Gold & Diamond Park, called Cara. Everyone was raving about it- apparently the service was excellent, the prices very reasonable, the quality of the diamonds impressive etc.

When we arrived at the Park, we had a wander around and then came across Cara. It was pretty much the only shop in the mall that had people shopping in it. That was a good sign. We went in and started looking at some rings. One of the friendly staff, Mayur, asked us to take a seat and show him some examples of what we were after. He seemed to know exactly what I wanted, and within 10 minutes we had found the perfect ring.

A small amount of haggling later, we had agreed on a price, which worked out to be only about a third of the price of similar rings we had looked at in London. The ring needed to be re-sized as I have slim fingers, and I expected we would have to return in a couple of days to collect it. No need to - they resized it while we waited, and even polished up my existing ring as well.

Can't wait for our next visit to Dubai and to Cara's ; ) Diamonds! Don't forget to haggle

Arriving at Dubai International Airport

by pakistanibrain

- If your plane docks at one of the gates and you have children with you, I would advise to use one of the Emirates-strollers. You'll see them lined up in a cupboard on your left side as soon as you leave the gate and enter the airport building.

- Then follow the "Arrival" signs until you reach the lifts/escalators that take you down to the arrival tunnel. The arrival tunnel is approximately 500 metres long. You can either walk through it or wait for a ride on the small shuttle car that takes you to the end of the tunnel. If you have kids or seniors with you, I would advise to make use of that.

- At the end of the tunnel you'll see the visa-collection counters on your left. If you are visiting Dubai for less than 60 days and hold one of the "privileged" nationalities you don't need to wait at the visa collection, because you'll get a "visa on arrival" at immigration directly. Here's a list of those countries: http://guide.theemiratesnetwork.com/living/visa.php

Otherwise you'll need a pre-arranged visa which your sponsor should've deposited at the airport. You have to collect that from the visa-collection then.

- After passing the visa-collection, you need to go to the eye-scan counters, which are located right next to the visa collection. After that the lift/escalator takes you up to the main arrival area. Proceed to immigration where your passport/visa will be checked. If you have kids with you, they should give you priority.

- After immigration, go to the right side where your hand luggage will be screened. Then move on to the baggage collection. There are 10 baggage collection belts and you have to check the screens to see where the baggage from your flight is.

- After collecting your baggage, you pass customs. They'll only stop you there if you look "suspicious" which has never happened to me. :)

- Then you'll go through a small hall to reach the exit door. On the other side you'll see hundreds of people waiting. If someone is at the airport to pick you up, that person will be standing there. Otherwise just keep walking straight to the Taxi waiting area and take a cab.
