Solid fares to Dubai from a lot of UK airports today.

Most of these fares (except the cheapest Stansted fare and the Heathrow fares with BA & Virgin) include checked bags too so there’s nothing more to add on.

For some ideas of things to do whilst you’re in Dubai, take a look at the Hand Luggage Only blog. From learning about the local history to trying your hand at falconry, it’s all there.

Travel Dates
Generally March to June and September to November ’19, with some small variations for each route.

How much do these flights usually cost?
Around £400+ return from London, more from other airports

British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Emirates, Turkish Airlines, Pegasus, Air France, KLM

What’s included?
Most of these fares include meals and a checked bag, with these two exceptions:
The non-stop flights from Heathrow with BA or Virgin include meals but not checked bags, which will cost around £30-£50 return.
The cheapest flights from Stansted with Pegasus don’t include meals or checked bags. You can add checked bags whilst booking for around £35 return.

Some of these flights are non-stop in both directions (noted above), all other flights have one connection in each direction.

Visas and Health
I always recommend checking the entry requirements and health advice before booking your flights so you don’t get any nasty surprises!

Accommodation For Your Trip

I start all of my hotel searches with TripAdvisor or Trivago so that I can see the cheapest places to book the hotel, plus read the reviews from other travellers.

To see the best deals for hotels in Dubai, click here to go to TripAdvisor*, enter your dates and TripAdvisor will show you the best prices.

Remember prices and availability can change quickly, so if you can’t find the deal it means it has probably sold out. When you see a deal you’re happy with, book it fast!

If you book one of these deals then please let me know, I’d love to hear from you!
