Emirates has just announced a fantastic offer for anyone looking to visit Dubai this summer. From 26th May 2023 to 31st August 2023, Emirates passengers can enjoy a one or two-night complimentary hotel stay in Dubai.
While the city’s summer months can be scorching, Emirates is offering a pretty good deal to entice visitors during this traditionally quieter period. To take advantage, flights can be booked through the Emirates website here.
Passengers traveling in First Class or Business Class can enjoy two free nights of complimentary accommodation at the stylish 25hours Hotel Dubai One Central, while Premium Economy and Economy Class passengers will get a complimentary one-night stay at the Novotel Trade Centre Dubai.
The 25hours Hotel is located in Dubai’s financial centre and a stone’s throw from the iconic Sheikh Zayed Road, and offers luxe rooms inspired by the UAE’s Bedouins. Admittedly, the Novotel might not be as lavish as the 25hours but it offers a comfortable and convenient stay to recharge before continuing your Dubai adventures.
To take advantage of this summer offer, you must either book an Emirates-operated return flight to Dubai or to another destination within the Emirates network but with a minimum stopover in Dubai of 24 hours.
You’ll need to have booked your tickets by June 11, and the travel period spans from May 26, 2023, to August 31, 2023. A minimum of 96 hours must have passed between booking the ticket and departure.
Once you’ve made your flight reservation, send an email to EmiratesOffer@emirates.com with your:
- booking reference,
- date of arrival in Dubai,
- passenger names,
- contact phone number,
- and email address.
It’s important to note that this offer is subject to availability and if the featured hotels are unavailable, Emirates will arrange a room for you at a comparable hotel with the same star rating. Additionally, passengers traveling on Mixed Class fares will only be entitled to an Economy Class stay.
Emirates is trying to drive traffic to Dubai during the quieter summer months.
Let’s be honest, the summer months are typically the slowest time of year for tourism in Dubai, and that’s because the weather is hot and humid, and even the locals prefer to travel to Europe during this period.
That being said, Dubai is increasingly popular all year round and while you might not be able to withstand the heat for too long, there are so many things to see and do inside, from the Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall to the Museum of the Future and the IMG Worlds of Adventures.
