Dubai International Airport (DXB) is one of the largest and busiest airports in the world, hosting an impressive number of flights from all over the globe each day. The distance from Dubai International Airport (DXB) to the downtown district of Dubai is 15 km, so your Dubai airport taxi ride shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes in light traffic.

This road will eventually become Sheikh Zayed boulevard and then your taxi driver will take the local roads to reach your hotel.

Why choose a Dubai airport taxi

The most reliable and convenient transfer option from Dubai International Airport (DXB) to your hotel is a Dubai airport taxi. You can pre-book your safe and convenient airport pickup with Welcome, and avoid the struggle of trying to drag your personal belongings through train stations or keeping an eye on your children on public transportation. 

Cost of a Dubai airport taxi

Local Dubai airport taxi prices are charged using a taximeter and do not have a flat-rate fee. Depending on exactly where your hotel is located in the city centre of Dubai, you can expect to pay around €15 for this journey. The local taxi drivers may also add on additional costs for things such as excess luggage, travelling during special holidays and vehicle type. If you’d prefer a set-rate fee with no hidden extras, we highly recommend booking your Dubai airport transfer in advance with Welcome Pickups.
