Setting up Salik for Dubai

When travelling to Dubai it is advisable to install Salik to pass through Dubai’s electronic toll gates. Salik, meaning open or clear, is Dubai’s electronic toll collection system which was launched in July 2007. Salik utilizes the latest technology to achieve free flow operation with no toll booths, no toll collectors, and no impact to traffic flow, allowing vehicles to move freely through the tolling point at highway speeds. Each time you pass through a Salik tolling gate, the toll of AED 4 will be deducted from your prepaid toll account using advanced Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology. The maximum charged on one day will be DHS 24. If you travel between Al Barsha Gate and Safa Gate in less than one hour only AED 4 is deducted.

Four Toll Gates in Dubai are:

• Garhoud Bridge
• Maktoum Bridge
• Sheikh Zayed Road Safa Park
• Sheikh Zayed Road just after Mall of Emirates (Al Barsha)

There are no pay booths and no need to stop as you drive through toll gates. Drivers attached a salik tag to their windscreen, that registers charges which is then deducted from your account.
