With guaranteed sun, and all but guaranteed luxury, Dubai is more popular this year than ever. There are fewer destinations at play right now, and with excellent covid-19 safety protocols people are flocking to the Emirate for winter sun.

To help entice new bookings, a little local airline called Emirates (wink) is offering something quite handy for any prospective visitors, with either one or two free hotel nights at the five star JW Marriott Marquis.

Emirates Free Night In Dubai Offers

If you book an Emirates ticket from virtually any destination in the world to Dubai, with Dubai as the final destination, Emirates is offering 1 free hotel night for economy class bookings, and two free nights for business or first class.

Yep, your Dubai trip just got a little bit cheaper, which is always nice. Those iconic, waist expanding buffets and the world class hospitality ain’t cheap. Unlike the Dubai Stopover program, which offers extreme discounts for people transiting through Dubai en route to other destinations, this offer is only for flight bookings with Dubai as the final destination.

The Juicy Details On Emirates Free Nights

This generous new complimentary hotel offer is for new Emirates bookings only, made from December 2nd thru December 23rd, 2020 for travel up until the end of February, 2021. You can travel anytime from now until February 28th, 2021 but to take up the comped five star hotel offer, you’ll need to book by December 23rd.

Sadly, the offer doesn’t apply to bookings made using Skywards Miles, and must be booked on Emirates flights operated by Emirates. All free hotel night requests must also be submitted at least 72 hours in advance, and there’s a blackout for hotel dates between December 27th and January 2nd. You can read the details here.

If you happen to be traveling in business or first class, two complimentary nights at the JW Marriott Marquis are included, which isn’t a bad way to start off a trip. For all free hotel nights included with the offer, your night(s) start the day you land.

Getting Into Dubai Right Now

Visitors from most countries are once again eligible to enter Dubai for tourism, and it’s a very streamlined and easy process. It’s also one of the safest destinations to visit right now.

Emirates requires most visitors to provide proof of a negative covid-19 PCR test before departure, but recently relaxed rules to allow some visitors, including those from the UK to test on arrival, as restrictions begin to relax once again. If you’ve been thinking about a trip to Dubai, or are booking one imminently,

Emirates just gave you five star reasons to book with them. Obviously, it’s good to comparison shop first, otherwise that “free” night might not quite be as free as you think.
