Why travel to Dubai?

Arguably one of the Middle East’s most vibrant cities, Dubai is glitzy and glamorous, and a shopaholic's dream - The Dubai Shopping Festival is designed to get people into the city with one aim: to spend money.

Coupled with amazing hotels, shopping malls, restaurants and activities ranging from a 4WD desert safari to skiing, it’s enough to make your credit card melt.

Why do I need Dubai travel insurance?

  • Don't worry about cancellations - You could be covered in an emergency e.g. if you suddenly become ill
  • Security - You might want to get your camera, laptop and/or tablet covered in case they get lost, damaged or stolen
  • Extra cover - If you fancy diving, quad biking in the desert or skiing in the indoor Ski centre it might be worth taking out additional cover

Get covered for:

      • Medical cover - You could avoid having to pay a fortune in medical bills if you fall ill or injure yourself in Dubai
      • Baggage - Your shopping, clothes and gadgets could be covered if your luggage gets lost
      • Flight delay - You could be compensated if your inbound or outbound flights are delayed

Dubai: Checklist

- Ramadan – As an Islamic city, Dubai follows the month of fasting known as Ramadan. During this time, it is considered disrespectful to eat, drink or smoke in public places during the day, though it is acceptable on hotel premises and certain cafes that are restricted to the public view. The dates of Ramadan change depending on the lunar cycle so it might be worth checking before you book your holiday.

- Dress code – When travelling to Dubai and the United Arab Emirates it is important to respect their culture, including their dress code. Wearing strappy, tight and low cut tops and short shorts is frowned upon, so it’s advisable to pack clothes that would cover from your shoulders to your knees.

- Dubai visa
- British nationals can get their visa upon arrival at the airport. It’s a 30-day visit visa and is free of charge, but it can be extended for an additional charge.

Dubai: Did you know?

- 1.2 million people live in Dubai but the population is expected to rise to 4 million over the next 10 years.

- The Palm Jebel Ali and The Palm Jumeriah are the man-made islands which are in the shape of palm trees containing hotels, shopping malls and luxury houses.

- The Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world, standing at 828m tall. 

- Dubai has a giant indoor ski centre - Ski Dubai. The vast indoor winter wonderland contains five ski runs, a sledding hill and a freestyle zone with jumps and rails.
