Are the excess mileage charges online anywhere or do I have to call up?

Specifically talking about DXB. We need to go to Abu Dhabi, which will be over the 75-mile limit, so I want to know what we will have to pay (and whether it will actually just be cheaper to book our own transfer!)

The excess mileage charges in the UK are high. VS wanted to charge me over £30 for about 92 driven miles from the airport, despite their website (at the time) saying it was a 70 mile radius from the airport that you were allowed & I live within this radius. They eventually backed down & the website was updated almost overnight.

In theory, excess mileage in the UAE should be pretty cheap, given that fuel & taxi's are dirt cheap over there (about the only two things that are cheap in Dubai!)

I was looking at a chauffeur car last year arriving DXB then transfer to Abu Dhabi. FC told me when I enquired that in the UAE, the chauffeur car will take you from DXB to Abu Dhabi and back at no extra cost. Abu Dhabi is within range of their limits.

I was using FC points for the journey as travelling on a reward flight.

As it was however the trip never came off. :-(
