We discuss a few of our most recommended tips and ideas for making your upcoming Eid international travel plans a seamless and enjoyable experience below.
Book Your Accommodation in Advance
The extended celebration of Eid is often a busy one filled with activity, with hotels, resorts and other hospitality destinations being booked out well ahead of time. If you are planning to have your family visit you and need to secure where they’ll be resting their heads, we recommend reserving accommodation as far in advance as possible to avoid disappointment at your hotel of choice. Likewise, if you are planning to travel to a different nation in the Middle East or trek further across the globe, make sure you secure your booking beforehand.
Enjoy Peace of Mind with a Reliable Insurance Plan
If you are planning to fly to a specific destination for Eid al-Fitr, covering yourself in case of emergencies comes highly recommended. Comprehensive travel insurance is the best option if you are planning to venture outside of the United Arab Emirates, or are visiting the UAE from another country. Travel insurance will be your saving grace for potential loss of baggage, stolen items, and medical injuries or emergencies. It’s important to consider what your travel insurance plan covers, as there may be limitations depending on the destination you plan to visit.
Browse For Good Eid al-Fitr Deals
There are plenty of restaurants and accommodation destinations in the UAE and the wider Middle Eastern region that offer attractive deals and special discounts to generate interest and attract consumers for the Eid al-Fitr holidays.
