Your Next Road Trip to Snoopy Island – Part 1: Rent Vs. Drive Your Own
Well, whether you’ve been in the UAE your whole life or you’re planning to wander all its nooks and crannies in your next vacation, a road trip to Snoopy Island would be a must!
In this part, we will be discussing preparatory measures; if you want to know more about Snoopy Island and the activities you can do there and details about the road trip, go to Part 2 now!
Cost & Distance:
While you’re most likely to set your starting point from Dubai, and -let’s say- you’re just visiting and you don’t have your own car, the road distance between Fujairah and Dubai is 121.4 km.
Considering all your travel choices:
The bus will take you 2h 39m, with a cost between AED 70 to AED 100.
A Taxi, on the other hand, would most likely cost you around AED 300.
All while you can do that, minus the fact that you’re going to be in the literal and metaphorical backseat of your road trip.
A better thing to consider –coming from personal experience with travelling abroad– would be renting, with a rental vehicle to be with you the minute you step foot in UAE, you are saved the hassle of dealing with public transport and having little control of your random stops. I mean, you’re more than likely here to explore and go with the flow, rather than go to specific cliche places that are filled to the brim with other tourists.
Cost? – well, it varies depending on your preference. However, for sure, it would boil down to something much cheaper than having to take a cab every other minute.

Driving your own:
So you’ve been here for a while, and you know your roads and can’t be separated from your car and think it’s the obvious choice, right?
Well, think again!
As you cherish your car so much, you must know the toll that certain roads have on your engine.
Your car might look fine but one essential thing to keep in mind is, driving long distances in harsh weather comes with consequences –if you love her all that much, do you want to put her through this?
Trying something new:
So the whole purpose of your road trip to the island is to freshen up, get away from a mundane cycle, and explore!
It just makes that much more sense to bring in a new toy for your journey amongst the mountainous roads, wouldn’t you agree?
Excited yet?! Well, as people say, it’s not just the destination; it’s the journey, so here’s Part 2[a] of this blog to tell you all about essential stops to make the trip that much more worth your while!
