A long holiday is soon for UAE residents

rawda samy - | UAE

Residents of the UAE will soon be enjoying a lengthy vacation. Do you plan to combine the five-day Eid al-Adha holiday with your annual leave? 

Which week of the summer vacation is the least expensive to book?

According to the findings of a study conducted by a travel business, ninety-two percent of travelers originating from the Emirates intend to spend their summer vacations in a foreign country.

Due to the fact that the Eid Al Adha break, which lasts for five days, occurs just one week before the summer break for schools in the United Arab Emirates, which lasts for two months, many locals are considering combining the two vacations in order to take a longer break. Most likely, the Eid holiday will begin on June 15th. During the two-month-long summer break, schools will close for the annual summer vacation. This will occur within a few days after offices reopen following the break.

"This year, there has been a forty percent surge in long-haul bookings compared to last year, indicating a strong preference for more prolonged and far-reaching trips," said Rikant Pittie, co-founder of the online travel website EaseMyTrip, in an interview with Khaleej Times. "A great number of families take advantage of the Eid holidays by combining them with their annual leaves in order to take a longer vacation with their families during their time away from home."

On the other hand, those who are interested in flying out around the beginning of Eid break or summer holidays will not be able to find the best deals. The travel service Skyscanner made the following statement, using statistics from its platform: "The first two weeks of July are the most popular period to head away this summer; nevertheless, they are not the most affordable weeks to travel... Traveling during the week of August 12 rather than July 8 in the United Arab Emirates can save an average of 11 percent, which translates to a savings of up to Dh804 for a family of four.

According to the findings of the company's research, ninety-two percent of travelers from the United Arab Emirates intend to spend their summer vacation off the country, according to the company's research findings.

On the other hand, forty-nine percent of residents have not yet made reservations for their summer vacation destinations. There are a number of reasons why they have not yet made a reservation, the most common of which is uncertainty regarding the dates (51 percent) and the location (35 percent). In addition, the research showed that travelers from the United Arab Emirates are looking for bargains that offer exceptional value. Forty percent of them said they are still trying to find the best deal, and twenty-two percent said they are waiting for a deal that is available at the last minute.

Top destinations to travel to during the UAE holidays.

Dnata, a travel service, has unveiled the most popular vacation spots in the United Arab Emirates for the summer of 2024. "Thailand, the Maldives, the United States of America, Turkey, and the United Kingdom are the options, in order of popularity."

"UAE-based travelers are exploring more of the world, including a variety of new locations across popular hotspots," said Meerah Ketait, head of retail and leisure UAE at dnata Travel. We expect this trend to continue growing in the coming years." There are a number of new resorts opening up across the islands of the Maldives between 2020 and 2024, and this year, our tourists are making the most of the opportunity to visit a new location.

The remaining 65 percent of bookings for the summer are for staycations in the United Arab Emirates, while the remaining 65 percent are for trips to other countries. Compared to the summer months, the travel company experienced a forty percent rise in the number of trip bookings during the Eid break and subsequent months.

According to Pittie of EaseMyTrip, inhabitants choose to travel to countries like Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan during the Eid holiday because these countries have shorter flight times. "Residents prefer to spend their vacations in places such as Saudi Arabia, the United States of America, Turkey, the United Kingdom, Bali, Hong Kong, and Australia."

One of the most significant trends that the travel company is observing is the increasing demand for tailored experiences and luxurious vacations. Food experiences, such as dining in unusual locations, are included in this category.

In addition, travelers from the United Arab Emirates are well-versed in technology and prefer to manage their trip plans online. They value the independence and control that independent travel gives them, even if it means paying a little bit more for it, he explained.

They choose individual travel over packaged tours. "Travelers are looking for destinations that are both comfortable on their wallets and of great quality."It is particularly obvious that this tendency occurs in families.
