Dubai is a very expensive city. If you go to Dubai, you better go prepared and there are a lot of laws you need to know about also because it’s nothing like where you’ve probably come from, especially for people travelling there from the states. A lot of people go to Dubai thinking it’ll be some party vacation get away but that’s not usually the case. They’re very strict on what you can and can’t do in Dubai, especially in public appearance. Doing something that’s against Dubai’s rules can land you in jail for a very long time, so study the laws before you go.
Dubai is essentially a city built by slave labor so while you see these exotic looking buildings and people running around in Lamborghinis, just remember that slave labor essentially helped fuel and build this city. More than that is the growing demand for limousines in Dubai. Limousines are great for anyone travelling from point A to point B or trying to make their own point when arriving to an event. If you want to arrive at somewhere in style, the limousine or chauffeur service is the one you need to call.
When you travel the UAE, you need someone who’s an expert guide on the region because it’s very easy to get lost in the UAE and some people aren’t going to be as kind to an English speaking foreigner who’s lost in their land. However, then there comes the next challenge of choosing the most reliable company out there for your money and how much does a limousine cost in Dubai?
To even be a limousine company in Dubai, you have to strictly follow the laws of Dubai known as the Dubai government Road & Transport Authority. They’re a set of laws far different than you’re accustomed to in the US. Did you know there’s only certain places in Dubai where a taxi service can even pick up passengers? These are pre-determined areas of waiting that limousines cam come to you and if they’re not marked, then you’re not legally allowed to be picked up by any taxi or limousine.
Also, the RTA does not ensure or legally require taxi services to install traffic meters inside of their vehicles. This will vary from company to company so when you call one, you might want to make sure they have a traffic meter, especially if they’re charging you by the mile. Don’t let them have an advantage over you. They are a business after all and will find a way to charge you as much money as humanly possible, just like any other normal business would do.
When it comes to Dubai and other foreign countries, living there, visiting and renting a limousine really just needs common sense that goes hand in hand. Don’t get into an unlicensed limousine and don’t ever let one pick you up at an unlicensed area because it could be a kidnapping scam. It’s not uncommon for people to go missing the UAE for ransom money.
