Some of the best holidays to Dubai are not necessarily the most expensive ones. By following some valuable tips, it is possible to make substantial savings on Dubai breaks. Whether it is a trip to Atlantis Dubai, a Dubai all-inclusive break or a general Dubai package holiday, read the following article for some top tips.
When to travel
Holiday companies and airlines often alter prices according to supply and demand. For some of the best Dubai deals, avoid the peak summer season and national holidays. These times are the most popular to travel and prices will therefore rise accordingly. Instead, travel out of season when hotels are looking to fill empty rooms and are more likely to reduce their prices. Time of travel The timing of the journey may help to reduce costs. Try to avoid end of weeks and weekends when the majority of tourists travel. Instead, opt for midweek travel.
Savings can sometimes be made by booking a flight directly with the airline and avoiding any additional charges from a third party. Many airlines will also offer a complete Dubai package holiday, taking care of hotels, transfers and car hire.
Many airlines and holiday companies charge heavy fees for using debit or credit cards. By law, they have to offer a free option when booking online. Find out what the option is for the company that you want to use and plan accordingly, even if it means opening a basic account at a new bank simply to get their debit card.
Possibly, the best way to book a cheap holiday to Dubai is through the internet. There are many online travel companies offering discounted holidays in Dubai. Most of them will compare a range of flight and hotel prices to offer the best deal. However, some of the companies' prices are more current than others.
