For those who aren’t aware, a Personal or Blue nol Card is one of the best ways to travel in Dubai. According to a news report by Gulf News, this card is linked to your Emirates ID and contact details. However, it is different from the Anonymous Silver or Gold nol Card, as you can recover your balance if you ever misplace your card or it gets stolen. Not to mention, people of determination can travel for free on the Dubai Metro and bus with this card! Moreover, students, residents in the UAE, and senior citizens can also get a discount of 50% on the fares charged on the buses and Metro.

But that’s not all! If your nol card is personalised, the maximum amount of balance that you can add to your card at a given point in time is AED5,000. However, the same for an unregistered card is AED 1000. Moreover, besides paying for public transport use, the top-up amount on these cards can also be used for other purposes! You will, however, need a slew of documents if you wish to apply for the personal nol card. You can get more details about this on the official website of the Dubai Roads & Transport Authority, where they have also listed the benefits of using nol cards.

So the next time you are travelling in Dubai, you might be able to save up to 50% with the help of these Blue nol cards. And truth be told, isn’t this absolutely awesome?
