Cost of taxi from Abu Dhabi airport

We are arriving into Abu Dhabi after midnight in May.We are staying at the Sheraton, Corniche Road.

Have read that taxis are readily available - would that still apply in the early hours of the morning? Also can anyone advise approx cost to the Sheraton. Assume there may be surcharges for that time? Hotel has quoted 140AED approx $35 AUD. Not sure whether it would be cheaper to take taxi or whether there may be difficulties for our arrival time.

Your advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

You can get a limo from Airport for 70 Dhs. and get a metered taxi from Khalifa Street for 60-65 Dhs. Why should waste money by paying double? are they going to provide any additional services?

Thanks for that info.

So just to clarify you would recommend getting a limo opposed to a meter taxi from the a/port as they have a fixed rate of 70 dhs?

Then a metered cab back would cost around 65 dhs in comparison? (is AED and DHS the same?)

No other services were offered so not convinced on the price.

There are two kinds of cab service at the airport; one is more like limo service with cleaner and better car and more professional drivers, and the other kind is the silver-colored metered taxi. In your case (to Millennium hotel), the limo service will cost you AED70, and it's around AED55-60 for taking taxi. Personally I feel safer to use the limo service.

And yes, it's very hot now, sometimes extremely muggy at night.

Taxi fares increased from 1st May 2012 :-

However, there was no rise for 2013:-

Taxi’s are very cheap when compared to the UK.

Hello,

Thank you for the information provided on this forum which is very helpful. I'll be travelling as a family of 4 or 5 next week and I have been quoted between AED 475 and 650 plus 6% for the hotel to arrange a car / Mercedes 6 seater from Abu Dhabi airport to the Beach Rotana, Tourist Club Area in the city.

I understand from your responses below that the fixed price taxi rate from the airport would be approx AED 70, is that for a family of 4 people or per person? What might the rate be for a vehicle that can accommodate 5?

I'm asking for clarification since there seems to be a major difference between the hotel taxi rate and the airport taxi fixed rate.

Thank you

Metered taxi only accommodate a maximum of four people, approximately AED 75 per taxi one way to central Abu Dhabi. Transfers organised by hotels are always more expensive.

Larger taxis are pretty rare, only alternative is to catch 2 taxis if there is more than four people.

Metered taxis are available from outside the airport at all times of the day. Airport limousine service is another option, not sure if a larger vehicle is possible.

I travelled by taxi throughout my trip, may be interested in my trip report and photographs:-

Hope this helps, have a great stay!
