Taxi from Dubai to Fujairah
Tourists who are going to the UAE for the first time are looking where they can book taxi beforehand in the Internet. And it’s the best way, because if you book cab beforehand, you shouldn’t worry.

You can find cab on the street, by your arrival. But in this case the driver will try to make money of foreigner. He could drive you the long way to make much money. Or pretend that he confused the place of your destination, drive farther, than you need, turn back and in the end of the road ask the money for all kilometers that he drives.
You can avoid this way:
