Dubai Car Hire

Dubai Desert Classic travel by car is definitely the easiest way of getting around.

To hire a vehicle you will need a valid International Driving Permit. Tourists can usually request a temporary local driving licence if they do not possess one. You will also need to show your passport, make a credit card payment and sign a collision damage waiver.

Caution should be exercised when taking to the roads in Dubai as the locals are known for their reckless manoeuvres and erratic driving. The Emirates Golf Club hosts the most famous golf courses and tournaments in the United Arab Emirates and is therefore clearly signposted throughout Dubai.

Other Dubai Travel Options

  • Taxis are a smart option for Dubai Desert Classic travel. They can be hailed from the street or booked in advance. Tipping is not obligatory and fares can usually be negotiated before the trip.
  • Most hotels targeting tourists will usually offer a shuttle service to their guests.
  • Limousines can be booked from the airport to transport you into the city, but are a rather expensive alternative.
