Taxi cost - Dubai to Abu Dhabi
Does anyone know how much a taxi costs from Dubai Airport to Abu Dhabi?

I'm also not sure whether to book the Beach Rotana Hotel or the Intercontinental. Which is nicer?

Why are you flying into Dubai if you want to go to Abu Dhabi?I'm sure the ride would be several hours.

There is no direct flight to Abu dhabi from Zurich you must go via Dubai, I also tried looking at going from Milan but it's the same story. I believe it's a 90 minute journey by car so it would be quicker to go by taxi than to wait for another flight.

I believe its only 75 km.
Al Ghazal Transport Services Taxi - approx. $50 one way.

I stayed at the IC Deira last year. very nice. Walking distance to shopping and the Gold Souk. Fabulous sushi buffet on Thursday nights.

At that rate and speed it sounds like a taxi it is.I thought it was further away.
