Taxi from Sofitel Corniche to Sheikh Zayed

Hi there

Looking for an approximate cost for taxi services in Abu Dhabi.

We plan to visit the mosque on a Sunday & would like to arrive for it opening around 9am. We would get a taxi from our hotel & go back to the hotel when we are finished.

Are taxis back easily accessible? Is there a rough cost?

Even an idea on how much taxis are per km would be great & I could work it out.

We are trying to weigh out whether a taxi would be better compared to bus. There are only 2 of us so i understand buses will be less expensive however a taxi is more comfortable so is there a massive difference in price?

Thanks in advance :)

Hi,

Your hotel to grand mosque taxi fare will be approximately Dhs. 35-40 in day time.

Taxi rate is calculated as Dhs. 1.6 x per km (upto 50km) + flag fall 3.50 at day time (6am to 10pm). From 10pm to 6 am (Night fare): Dhs. 1.69x per km + Flag fall 4, (Minimum fare Dhs. 10).

Waiting charges: every 1 min Dhs. 0.50 (after first 5 min)

Tele-booking (600 53 53 53) charges, extra : Dhs. 3 at day time, Dhs. 4 at night time.
