Finding a Cheap Flight to Dubai
It's Not Difficult & You Have Many Options
Hi, Sunil here to help you find a cheap flight to Dubai!
With rising cost of fuel these days, it should not be a surprise to anyone that airfares have increased all the way to the stratosphere.
We all love to do a bit of discount traveling and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.
We are just trying to get the best for the least, but of course, in order to get such a deal, you would have to search high and low for it.
I have done quite a bit of discount traveling until now and I can tell you that most of the time it is a trade off, a facility or a privilege for the lesser cost.
Most of the time this would mean that the lesser cost would entail you to spending hours at some foreign airport gawking at other passengers like the goldfish in a fishbowl. The best time to fly to Dubai would be some time during the shopping season or during the cooler months of January or February.
But hot or cool, most airline companies that fly to Dubai often come up with a package or two, all season long. But you will have to put in some effort to find those cheap flights to Dubai.
A direct flight to Dubai costs more so if you are okay with a stopover or two, then you can actually take advantage of the special offers on many flights to Dubai, which can bring down your transportation cost and give you more to spend on actual purchases and fun activities.
In order to locate the least expensive airlines tickets to Dubai, try to concentrate on the local airlines, as they would often be the ones with the lowest Dubai airfares and at certain times, like the Dubai shopping season, these airlines provide discounts and fantastic offers to the passengers.
Personally, I often feel that the shopping season is more for the shopaholics amongst us than for those of us who want to get a real feel of the city. So, if you are not into shopping and want to live and breathe Dubai, that is, if you are into exploring the city by extending your duration here, then you would definitely need to budget your expenses accordingly.
The first place that you can start with would be the cost of airfare, which can actually put a huge crimp on your wallet/purse, unless checked. As far as low airfares go, it seems that both Emirates Airlines as well as Gulf Air are vying with each other to offer the very best vacation packages to Dubai.
So if you are keen on getting the very best in Dubai airfares, I would suggest one of these two. Also keep your eyes peeled for cheap holiday packages to Dubai offered by many travel agencies in Dubai or outside.
These packages already come with a good airfare and discounted hotel rates. These are also sometimes referred to as all inclusive holidays to Dubai. Just keep an eye out!
The direct flights to Dubai cost more than the ones with the stopover so when booking your ticket, make sure that you know what you are paying for. Some of the airlines have only a short stopover whereas the others tend to drag it on endlessly.
If you are traveling from United Kingdom, expect your fares to range anywhere from 700 pounds and upwards, with the British Airways currently offering a direct flight to Dubai at slightly above 1,000 pounds.
If you are traveling from the United States expect airfares to Dubai to be in the $1,000 to $1,500 range. Much cheaper from the US if you ask me. KLM, Continental, Emirates are some of the airlines that will take you direct from US to Dubai.
In my frequent trips to Dubai, I have always found the best options to be through 2 sources. First try searching flights through Emirates Airlines. You should be able to score a cheap flight to Dubai 75% of the times.
If you can't find one, try TravelNow. I have been so impressed with their service and selection that Kish and I have partnered with them to provide significant savings on your travel. We recommend them to all our visitors and we have yet to hear a complaint.
