Taxis

Metered taxis and limousines are easy to find. They are available outside hotels, shopping malls and restaurants. Alternatively, taxis can be booked by telephone. The starting fare is QAR 4 plus a per-kilometer charge. Drivers rarely carry much change and it is recommended that you carry QAR 10 and QAR 20 notes with you.

Public Transport

The West Bay shuttle buses transport commuters around the central business district.

Car Hire

Cars can be rented, or hired with a driver. To rent a car, you must hold an international driving license. Rates and availability vary by car rental company.
