Same money(depend on the car you want) you will pay for taxi, but with less nervous.

One more tip: If you are not good at roads in Dubai, do not take the car from the airport. Even with GPS you can loose the exit from the airport in right direction, the speed is fast in Dubai! Much better to come to the hotel, check the GPS settings or your Simcard for Data packages, open the map and check the route you need. Look that is the name of the area, where your hotel located, that is the roads close by and how to exit to your area. Where is the parking entrance and the parking fees around the area.

Check the places you want to visit, how far are they? What is the best road to take? And how to come back?
