Additional tips:

Here are some additional tips for planning a trip to Dubai if you have mobility issues:

  • Do your research. Before you go, be sure to do your research and find out which attractions and activities are wheelchair accessible. There are a number of websites and resources that can help you with this.
  • Contact the attractions. Once you have found a few attractions that you are interested in, be sure to contact them directly to confirm their accessibility. This will help you avoid any surprises when you arrive.
  • Book in advance. Many attractions in Dubai are popular, so it is a good idea to book your tickets in advance. This will ensure that you have a spot, and it will also give you the opportunity to request any special accommodations that you may need.
  • Bring a wheelchair. If you are using a wheelchair, be sure to bring it with you. You may also want to bring a portable ramp, if necessary. Alternatively, if you don’t want to risk taking your wheelchair or mobility scooter on an airline, you can hire equipment from us for your visit
  • Ask for help. If you need help getting around, don’t be afraid to ask for it. The staff at most attractions in Dubai are very helpful and accommodating.

With a little planning, you can have a great time exploring Dubai, even if you have mobility issues.
