Transfers from Dubai Airport

The fastest and most comfortable way to reach any destination from the airfield is by online booking an airport transfer from Dubai DXB and DWC. From here, you can easily get to the Marina District, Abu Dhabi, Palm Jumeirah, Saadiyat Island, and many other places.

Dubai airport transfers will allow you to:

  1. Travel faster than by public transport. The driver waits for you at the arrivals area before the plane lands. After you meet him, you head for the vehicle and depart as soon as you’re ready. Finally, the driver takes the fastest route to reach the destination on time.

  2. Travel directly to your hotel. When you visit an unknown location, getting lost is very easy. The driver makes sure you get to the right building and takes you wherever you need.

  3. Avoid using cash. Currency exchange at the airfield is often not profitable. At Kiwitaxi, all the trips are paid online with a credit card. 15 currencies are supported, but if yours is not on the list, it will be converted automatically.

  4. Avoid the language barrier. When you book the trip, all the required information is entered. The driver is informed about everything, so he waits for you at the arrivals area with a nameplate. You get a voucher with all the details and the driver’s contact number. Also, the English-speaking support is online 24/7.

  5. Get a vehicle in the day and at night. If you place an order at least 24 hours before the departure, Kiwitaxi guarantees to find a suitable vehicle on time. This is more reliable than taking a cab or traveling by public transport.

This is the best way to leave the airfield if you travel with friends, family, children, or elderly relatives

Airport transfers from Dubai International (DXB) to Dubai cost 35 USD, while from the «Al Maktoum» (DWC) airfield the price is 39 USD. The trips take up to 1 hour.
