Dubai airport transfers: Everything you need to know

A coastal city filled with impressive architecture, plenty of luxury shopping, and lively nightlife, Dubai is truly where traditional meets modern. You can use the city’s incredibly extensive transportation system, made up of metro lines, buses, trams, a monorail system, Dubai airport transfers, and even waterbuses. If you’re traveling to or from the airport, save yourself the time and headache by choosing an airport transfer. Doing so will give you more opportunities to hit the shops and do some sightseeing.

Dubai has two main airports in its general region, which are known as Dubai International Airport and Dubai World Central. Dubai International is the primary hub in the area and you can reach it in about 10 to 15 minutes from the city center. Dubai World Central is smaller, but still a major international airport. If you are flying via this airport, prepare for a 40-minute drive from the city center. Both can easily be reached by airport transfer services, a convenient way to maximize your time in Dubai.

What makes Dubai airport transfers such a convenient choice?

As a large city, Dubai’s public transportation systems are very big and can be confusing for people that have never used them before. Keep in mind that both airports are huge, further complicating things when it comes to finding your correct terminal and gate. Instead of potentially getting lost and struggling to figure out where you should check in for your flight, take an airport shuttle that will directly deliver you to your correct terminal. 

No one wants to potentially miss their flight because they were unsure how to get to the airport, so why risk it? Because Dubai International is such a short drive away from the city’s downtown, you can easily get there in a vehicle, rather than switching between buses and metros. Dubai World Central is a bit further away, which means that you’ll find public transportation routes even more complicated. Save yourself from lugging around suitcases and shopping bags and instead opt for a convenient airport transfer service.

What are the different types of airport transfers that are offered in Dubai?

The most common type of Dubai airport transfer service is a standard car that can usually fit up to three passengers and their luggage. If you are traveling in a bigger group, it is possible to reserve a large van, or even a bus.

Traveling to Dubai for work and want to look as professional as possible? You can choose a stylish executive car. If you just feel like spoiling yourself a bit, you can also choose a luxury vehicle that will make you feel like a celebrity. You can always choose between shared vehicles and private cars. This depends on how quickly you would like to travel and if privacy is important to you or not.

How much should I expect to pay for an airport transfer?

If you will be reserving a standard car for just a handful of passengers, you can plan on paying between 110 AED (30 USD) and 146 AED (40 USD). A van that can fit closer to five to six passengers will cost approximately $70, while a bus will be around 367 AED (100 USD) to 440 AED (120 USD). For those that will be traveling in either an executive car or a luxury vehicle, plan on budgeting around 183 AED (50 USD). When sharing any of these vehicles with strangers, your fare will generally be cheaper, but keep in mind that you will probably have to make more stops during your voyage.

When should I plan on booking my airport transfer?

It’s important to keep in mind that Dubai International is the busiest international airport in the world. If you’re traveling through this airport, it’s best to arrive at least two hours before your flight boards, if not two and a half hours. When driving during peak traffic hours like 7 to 9 am or 6 to 8 pm, you should give yourself even more time in case of congestion. Dubai World Central isn’t as busy, but it is still best to give yourself around two hours at the airport.

We booked transportation from the hotel to the airport to avoid unnecessary stress. The driver was late and picked us up at the hotel and loaded our luggage. I would book the transport again and again for the airport transfer. In the airport you pay 20 dirham directly just for boarding, so the transfer is not more expensive depending on where you have your hotel. We were crazy.

Good pick up at the airport. But with hindsight and now knowing the prices of Dubai taxis, it's far too expensive… but hey it's reassuring when arriving at 11:30 pm to know that we will be dropped off at our hotel without stress!

Mohammed was professional and on time. He also communicated before our flight to let us know who he was and what to looks for and where to go upon arrival at the airport.

as every time we travel we take a private driver through Get Your Guide and as every time no bad surprises, everything was perfect.

The transfer went well. The driver waited for us at the airport with a sign. Air-conditioned car.
