We're staying in the Sofitel in Jumeirah Beach and are planning to go to Ras Al Khaimah for the day. Would it be easiest to hire a car or take a taxi to do this? This is quite a last minute trip so we don't have an International Driving Permit, but prices for hiring a car look very cheap (less than GBP£20 including all insurance for the day) although we may have to go to the aiport to do this.
If we took a taxi, approximately how much would this cost? The drawback of a taxi is that it will take us from Dubai to one place in Ras Al Khaimah, but then if we want to go somewhere else nearby we'll have to take a separate taxi, so I can see that becoming very expensive.
