The definitive answer is at the top right of this page "Top questions about Ras al Khaimah". Depending where you are going in RAK it will cost around 220AED to 250AED. They do have people carriers although not sure about 7 seaters. There is a "Taxi Arranger" at the head of the queue who will sort you out.

Many thanks, I think that will be considerably cheaper than paying the hotel to collect us - they want 800 aed for 7 people. Thank you

The Hotels here in Ras al Khaimah have their own taxis which are "un-metered" and always more expensive than local taxis. Taxis are also cheaper here when you get to RAK than Dubai. For your return you may have to pre-book a people carrier to take you back as they are not the norm in RAK. You cannot use a Dubai taxi to take you from RAK to Dubai. It is against the law!!!!

Very helpful thank you. Are the RAK taxi companies reliable if booked? where would be a good place a phone number for RAK taxis? Do they operate through a company or individually? I had thought although it seems cheaper to get a taxi at Dubai airport, we may need to get a hotel car to take us back as not sure how reliable the RAK taxi companies are.

The taxi company in RAK (there are no private taxis outside of hotels) is very reliable. The telephone number for the call centre is displayed on all the taxis. You will not have a problem. Taxis are plentiful. If you cannot get a "people carrier" two taxis will cost around 150AED each to the airport. RAK taxis have a cheaper rate than Dubai taxis.

If you book directly with the Hilton RAK Resort and Spa, under your reservation you have the option to order "requests upon arrival". Most are food and drink items, but you can prebook a pick up from Dubai airport at 300 AED for 2 people and 450 for up to 4.

There will be 2 of us and the premium of 50 AED over what appears to be the standard taxi fare from DXB is worth it for me for for peace of mind, knowing it is prebooked and the driver will know where they are going. Presumably I'll also get HH points on the incidental spend too.

On the return I'll probably go for the local RAK taxi.
