Default Parking at DXB

Gotta fly from DXB at 0840 on Tuesday, toss up between driving there and parking or getting a cab from AD. Is there easy short-term parking, if so anyone know how much? Will be coming back 0620 Friday.

Yeah yeah, I know you'll miss me.

Thanks for the advice, all. Cab booked.

Decided to go to New York at short notice. Fancy a bit of stalking.

Was going to suggest leaving your car for free in the back streets around Le Meridien Airport Hotel as otherwise you would need long-term parking as its more than 24 hours, but you have already decided to go by taxi. How much does that cost by the way?

Just for the record:

Booked Al Ghazal going: AED 325 flat rate.
Got a standard cab at the airport coming back: AED 295, but it was early Friday morning so no traffic.

you so could have off street parked if you wanted to save that... if company paying no worries and I reckon you probably had a beer or two on the return leg so..... TAXI!
