ImageTaxis in Dubai are relatively cheap over short distances, but can prove expensive for long distance travel.  If you and your destination are not along the metro or a convenient bus route, a taxi is just about your only option.  There is no shortage of them throughout the city and cabstands are located outside all of the malls.  Make sure to get a receipt in case you leave something behind.  Taxis with pink roofs and upholstery are reserved for women and families.

Taxi drivers are not supposed to refuse a destination, but if they do the complaint line for the RTA Taxi Department is 800 9090 (toll free) or 04 208 0888.  If you need a taxi late at night or off the beaten trail, feel free to hit up one of Dubai’s many cab companies:

Gulf Radio Taxi: 04 223 6666
Golden Taxi: 04 336 5444
Orange - Metro Taxi: 04 267 3222
Emirates Taxi: 04 339 4455
Yellow - National Taxi: 04 339 0002/ 04 336 6611

Blue Cars Taxi: 04 269 3344/ toll free 800 227789
Red Taxi: 04 208 0808

Taxis are metered so there is no need to haggle.  Make sure the driver uses the meter.
