Is renting in Abu Dhabi trough AirBnB safe for a family (i.e. renters)?
I am mostly concerned if ladies can walk freely (unlike Saudia), and also is it safe for ladies travelling alone?
Yes, use of AirBnB in UAE is both safe and common.

This question has nothing to do with AirBnB and is a separate question in its own right, however just for the sake of completeness: Yes, ladies can and do walk freely in the tourist/shopping areas in the UAE.
