Arrive happy with Abu Dhabi rides & airport transfers.

Touching down at Abu Dhabi International airport, it’s hard not to feel in awe of the opulent surroundings. The sprawling metropolis of Abu Dhabi is one of the most popular tourist destinations, and it’s easy to see why. With endless blue skies, man-made golden beaches, malls full to the brim with boutique shops, world-class restaurants, and a wide variety of activities from trampoline parks to video arcades, the opportunities are endless.  

If adrenaline-fuelled fun is more your thing, Abu Dhabi’s Ferrari World is for you. Situated on Yas Island, you’ll also find an award-winning golf course, impressive waterpark, the Yas Mall, and on the island’s southern shores, a tranquil stretch of beach. But don’t let the modern skyscrapers and fast cars fool you, Abu Dhabi has an ancient heart. As the gateway to the middle east, you can find out all about the city’s history in Abu Dhabi’s oldest building, Qasr Al Hosn.

Whether you’re visiting the capital of the UAE for business or leisure, take the hassle out of navigating the highways by booking your Abu Dhabi airport transfer with hoppa.

Book your Abu Dhabi airport transfer

If you’re ready to book your Abu Dhabi airport transfer for a stress-free start to your getaway, enter your travel details in the boxes above and hit ‘Search’. You’ll be presented with a list of suitable options for your journey - all you have to do is choose which one you want to go for.

Private Abu Dhabi airport transfers

A private Abu Dhabi airport transfer is the fastest and most hassle-free way to be transported to your accommodation. And because the transfer is only for you and your party, you won’t have to share your journey with strangers, and there are no other drop-off points along the way. 

On your e-ticket, you’ll find the pick-up time to meet your driver at the airport. This too will be tailored to your flight itinerary to ensure you won’t have to endure a long wait at the airport after your flight.

How much does an Abu Dhabi airport transfer cost?

Each transport option has a price listed alongside and has been tailored specifically for your trip. A transfer from Abu Dhabi airport to Dubai, for example, will be more expensive than a transfer to Abu Dhabi because it’s considerably further.

It’s worth noting that our prices are live and can fluctuate depending on exchange rates and other factors. Once you have booked your Abu Dhabi airport transfer, however, the price is then fixed and will not change.

Additional information about your Abu Dhabi airport transfer

Once you’ve selected the transport for your Abu Dhabi airport transfer, you will be directed to our ‘Extras’ page. This is where you can add more luggage to your booking - such as golf bags and pushchairs. You might also require a vehicle that is wheelchair accessible. All of which we would need to know in advance, so we are able to accommodate your requests. If you can’t see the option to update the extras you require, you can contact our support team for further assistance.

Luggage restrictions

Like international flight carriers, there’s a standard limit of one piece of hand luggage and one suitcase per person, but there is the option to add more luggage if required.

E-tickets for your journey

Once you’ve completed your booking, you’ll receive an email straight to your inbox with your e-ticket confirming the details of your Abu Dhabi airport transfer, as well as important information about your pick-up locations and emergency numbers.

Print off your e-ticket before you fly to use as proof of your booking and make sure you read it through carefully to ensure all the details are correct and you know where to go when you land in Abu Dhabi.

Where to go when you land

On your e-ticket under the ‘Find my pick-up’ section, your specific instructions can be found. Your pick-up location will be dependent on your transport, and as such you should read these instructions carefully to make sure you go to the right location.

If you can’t see this information or you have any questions, give the number on your e-ticket a call, and we’ll direct you from there.

Finding the driver

If you arrive at the designated pick-up point and your driver isn’t there, it may be that they have been held up in traffic. But please do give us a call if you can’t see them, and we shall update you on their whereabouts.

Facing delays

As with all methods of transport, sometimes you may face a delay, whether it’s with the flight itself, waiting for your bags to be unloaded, or even queuing through passport control. If you think you may be delayed for your taxi from Abu Dhabi airport, please give us a call as soon as possible.

Our drivers will wait for you for 45 minutes at the collection point and for delays beyond that, we will send you an alternative driver. If, in the unlikely event you face a delay of more than three hours, you will have to rearrange your Abu Dhabi airport transfer with us.
