Careem taxi from the airport to JBR

Hi there,

Does anyone know if you can fit 2 adults & a 12 year old with 3 cases in a Careem taxi from the airport to JBR as we were thinking of doing the transfer ourselves next year?

Thanks in advance

Martin

I wouldn't get Careem from the airport. They can't pick up from the rank, only RTA taxis are allowed to do that.

Instead I would just follow the signs to the official taxi rank and get in a standard cream coloured people carrier style taxi at the rank. There will be plenty of space for your and your luggage, the meter will start at 25 dirham and the total fare will be roughly 115 dirham

Careem and especially Uber offer different sizes (and rates) of vehicle by type. However, as Latimer says they're not allowed airport pickups.

RTA taxis are safe, fine and practical - just ask the hawker at the taxi stop to summon a people carrier if there is not one lined up. And don't listen to him when he says he can offer you a limo service (he can, but at 30%+ price).

Careem is a great option in Dubai - much better than Uber IMO - especially when there's no obvious place to find a taxi (or flag one down) so it's a good Plan B.
