But with so many deals and so many choices of transfer on offer, how do you know which one works best for you? Start by having a look at the table below, so you can discover all you need to know about each transfer type we can offer.

Abu Dhabi Airport Transfer Options

Shared bus transfer Our shared shuttles from Abu Dhabi Airport can get you to popular hotels both in the city itself and in nearby destinations, for the best price available. Also sometimes referred to as a shared shuttle, with this service, you will join other travellers when you get through to Arrivals, in a large, comfortable vehicle that will make stops en route to your accommodation. But don't worry - there will be some stops to drop off other passengers before you arrive at your own hotel, but you won't be endlessly travelling the scenic route.
Speedy shared bus transfer Purple Parking's speedy shuttle transfers work just like our normal shuttle service as above, where you will make several stops in a larger vehicle you share with other travellers, boarding at the terminal at Abu Dhabi Airport. However, this service will make fewer stops, which means you get to your hotel in the city a lot faster. This is the perfect option for those who want to enjoy the best balance of convenience and shorter journey times.
Private transfers Our private transfers are very similar to catching a public taxi at the terminal, in that you travel in one vehicle that is just for the use of your and your group. However, the difference by pre-booking is that you guarantee there will be a car ready and waiting for you when you land. So all that's left for you to do once you've landed and grabbed your luggage, is find your waiting driver, hop into your car, and set off when you're ready. There's no other stops when you choose a private taxi transfer - instead, you'll go straight to your hotel, no matter where you are staying, with the minimum of fuss. Private cars can also take you to private accommodation, which means this is the most flexible option available.
Executive private transfers Think of it as a luxury taxi transfer, with the simplicity of a private car, and the extra special touch of something a little more luxurious to kickstart your trip. Our executive transfers are the perfect option for you. Offering everything you get from our standard private transfers, but with an uber-classy brand vehicle collecting you from the terminal, this is perfect for those wanting to treat themselves to a special start to their holiday.
Minibus transfers If you're travelling in a group of friends or family that can't fit into one taxi, and you don't want to share a shuttle with others, you probably still want to stick together, rather than getting split up across multiple vehicles and potentially lose track of eachother. When you book your own private minibus for your journey to your hotel you can do just that. You'll be transported together in a minibus you'll have all to yourselves.
Wheelchair adapted transfers If anyone you're booking for uses a wheelchair and you need to book an adapted vehicle for your trip from Abu Dhabi Airport, then you can do so easily with us here at Purple Parking. A wheelchair transfer offers a fuss-free journey to your destination, and includes a driver who will be able to provide whatever assistance you may need from start to finish, so you don't have to worry about a thing on the day. Also, You pay for everything upfront when you book, so you won't have to worry about watching the metre ticking up!
Private coach transfers If you are travelling in a group that's too big even for a minibus, then we can also offer private coach transfers from Abu Dhabi Airport to hotels across the city and even further afield. Able to transport very large party sizes, including wedding parties and school trips, our coaches also come with onboard representatives who will be available throughout the transfer to ensure your experience runs as smoothly as possible, and everyone is able to enjoy their journey.

🔥 Best time to visit When it comes to the best time to visit Abu Dhabi, one of the most important things to consider is the temperature. Abu Dhabi can get extremely hot, and though a lot of indoor spaces do have air-conditioning, you may find it very uncomfortable to be outside at certain times of the year. For example, in August, it can easily reach 42 degrees Celsius. We recommend visiting at times like January, which has a high of 24 degrees Celsius, February which has a high of 25 degrees Celsius, and December which has a high of 26 degrees Celsius.
🕑 Time difference Abu Dhabi is 4 hours ahead of the U.K.
🏄 Things to do in Abu Dhabi The first thing we recommend doing is paying a visit to the iconic Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, so you can get a true sense of culture and the incredible architecture of Abu Dhabi. Other popular landmarks and sights include Ferrari World, the Emirates Palace, Warner Bros World, and no trip to Abu Dhabi is of course complete without a spot of shopping, so make sure you add the Yas Mall to your to-do list too.
