About Dubai Airport Taxis
In the UAE, the government generally has a monopoly and grants licenses to Dubai Airport taxi companies, with the result that the fare is about the same for all regardless of the privileges they may advertise.
All companies have vehicles in cream color with the distinctive taxi sign on their roof while each of them has a different, characteristic color on the roof of each car. You will find that most vehicles have additional billboards on their doors.
Taxi fare from Dubai airport to the city center
The largest percentage of the fare is predetermined by the government and therefore, prices do not differ significantly from company to company. Thus, you can calculate 7 € for the initial airport fare, 0.45 € / km distance charge and 0.15 € / km waiting cost. The total price for the Burj Khalifa / City Center area thus amounts to around € 15 (62.50 AED).
The usual transfers in the area of the center last 15 minutes while the charge is the same, at 15 € (62.50 AED).
