Well prepared for your vacation

We always looking for your satisfaction.

For us, it starts with leaving no questions unanswered. We, therefore, expect our certified providers to provide detailed descriptions of their hotels, activities, tours and safaris. But we also know that you have a lot of questions about the United Arab Emirates as a travel destination. Especially if this is your first time planning to travel here.

For this, we have our FAQs (most frequently asked questions) and regularly publish articles on all questions about the UAE in our blog posts.

Nevertheless, it can of course happen that a question is not answered or not answered sufficiently.

We would be very happy if you then contact us or the providers to clarify your questions.

A message in a bottle is certainly a very romantic way of establishing contact. But of course we are also happy if you use our modern (unfortunately less romantic) means of contacting us. We have e-mail, WhatsApp and of course telephone.

FAQ`s

When you want to visit a new travel destination, you often have many questions about the weather, country and life, means of payment and currency, public transport, rental cars and road traffic and so on. In the FAQ`s we will answer some things shortly.

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) are located on the Arabian Peninsula directly on the Persian Gulf and thus belongs to Asia. The neighboring countries on the mainland are Saudi Arabia, the Sultanate of Oman. The UAE consists of 7 emirates, the largest of which, Abu Dhabi, is also the capital of the UAE.

The currency in the United Arab Emirates is called the Dirham and is either abbreviated as AED or DH.

Banknote denominations: 5 AED, 10 AED, 20 AED, 50 AED, 100 AED, 200 AED and 500 AED. There are also the coins 1 dirham, 50 files, 25 files, 10 files, 5 files, and 1 file. The 1, 5, and 10 files are bronze-colored and quite rare in everyday life. The 25 and 50 files and the 1 dirham are silver-colored and often found.

A rough rule of thumb for exchanges: 1 EURO is around 4 DIRHAM, 1 USD is a little less. If you’re traveling here and something costs 100 dirhams, that’s roughly the equivalent of around 25 euros. If you want to tip the taxi driver or the bellhop 5 dirhams, that’s about 1.25 euros.

You can pay with all types of credit or master cards in addition to “cash”. In the malls, in many hotel lobbies, and on the street near banks, there are so-called “ATMs” that are ATMs where you can withdraw cash.

Don’t forget that you often have to have your credit card approved for use abroad by your bank. Otherwise, you will be without a working credit card and have to communicate with your bank from here.

For Non-Muslims are allowed to drink alcohol, although the individual Emirates handle this differently.

However, it is not allowed to drink alcohol in public (streets, public buildings, squares, parks, beaches) or to stumble through the city drunk.

Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Ras al Khaima, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, Fujairah allow non-Muslims to drink alcohol and so alcohol is served there in hotels and restaurants, for example. As a non-Muslim, you can now buy alcohol without a permit. However, alcohol is not readily available in the supermarket. There are separate shops for this. For example, the chain of stores Spinneys offers alcohol, other shops the alcohol sell are in the streets of the city. Im Al Raha Beach Hotel , if you walk from the hotel lobby to the shopping mall, there is also a shop that sells alcohol (but there are no shop windows or notices, a sliding door opens on the right)

Alcohol is strictly prohibited in Sharjah.

And please don’t forget that the zero alcohol rule applies when driving a vehicle in the UAE!

Tourists are allowed to bring 4 liters of alcohol into the United Arab Emirates (except Sharjah).

The United Arab Emirates are a modern, cosmopolitan and multicultural country. It is an Islamic country and is open and tolerant of all other religions. This is of course also reflected in the clothing rules.

People dress normally here, but not too provocative. On the street, in shopping malls, in restaurants, or in public buildings, it is not desirable to appear in bathing suits, but you would not do that at home either. Every type of swimwear is allowed on the beach, but you have to do without “topless” or “nudism”.

There are dress codes in the mosques: For men – no shorts (knee-length shorts are allowed) and no sleeveless tops (short sleeves are allowed). For women – ankle-length and long-sleeved clothing that does not fit too tightly and a cloth that covers the hair. In the Grand Mosque, every woman can borrow an abaya in different colors free of charge and put it after visiting the Mosque in the laundry bin.

Weather: it is generally very warm in the UAE, which is why hotels, taxis, buses, shopping malls, restaurants, and public buildings are air-conditioned. For this, it would be good to always bring a light jacket or a scarf so that it doesn’t get too cold. In the winter months (November to April) it cools down very quickly in the evening. It can even get up to 6 degrees cold in the desert at night. There are also strong fog and air humidity. Here you shouldn’t do without warmer clothing to feel good.
