Dubai for the winter? Great idea…
Rain, rain go away – hang on – forget rain. Dubai in January and February is a lovely 24-29°C, with just about a 0% chance of rain, and a 100% chance of immaculate sunshine. That leaves just one issue, which is getting there. While most great Dubai flight deals involve budget airlines, Star Alliance favorite Turkish Airlines has fantastic deals from London to Dubai, all in for under £265 round trip. Grab the sunscreen…
Turkish Airlines is a full service airline, and that means you can bring an impressive two bags with you for free. You’ll receive on board meals and all the other fun stuff you’d expect, which is pretty amazing given the price. Dubai is an awesome pick for a winter destination because not only is it wonderfully sunny, it’s easy to do enjoy just a long weekend, or even a standard weekend without missing any work. Since you’re flying Star Alliance you’ll be able to earn frequent flyer points from these flights, which is always nice!
These deals are wide open, which is quite exciting if you’re looking for a tan, and maybe some off roading or an amazing camel ride through the desert. You can travel anytime from November 5th to December 6th, and then again in 2019 from January 7th to March 20th. A few scattered dates are also available in May and June.
Booking is easy. You can pull up these deals on SkyScanner, which has them about £10 cheaper than anywhere else. At £265 round trip, there’s a whole lot to love. Here’s an example link for November, December, January, February and March. Simply play with dates in each month to customize the perfect trip for you – and enjoy Dubai. Oh, and here’s how to save some money while you’re there. What’s better than a winter tan?
