One of the easiest and safest cities to get around in

More carriers than ever are flying to the award-winning Abu Dhabi International Airport. The emirate has a well-planned road system and getting around is easy. Taxis are reasonably priced and can be flagged down or booked, with public transport buses being modern, air-conditioned, reliable, and cost-effective. You can also drive yourself, with fantastic infrastructure featuring well-marked roads in English and Arabic. You’ll find all major car rental companies in Abu Dhabi, plus a few local options, but more reputable firms generally have more reliable vehicles and a greater capacity to help in an emergency. Recognised as one of the safest cities on earth, Abu Dhabi's virtually crime-free environment and well-organised emergency services offer peace of mind.
