Affordable Travel For Students In Dubai

Ditch the cab! (memorize, repeat)! Taxis in Dubai can be a costly affair. So I ditched the cab unless I was traveling with a group of 3-5 friends, and we could split up the bills. Besides, getting a student Nol Card to use the RTA transports helps in reducing travel costs by 50%. So that means you can save more!

Zomato is probably one of my most-used apps! After all, who wouldn’t want to scroll endlessly through all the possible food options and plan out the next meal? And then there are many added offers for Zomato Deliveries too. Generally, you can eat at your dorm, if you have access to a kitchenette, but I didn’t. So hello, Zomato! Digging into great food available at affordable rates is always the best way to save money as a student.
