Best time to fly to Dubai?
Here are the cheapest months/days to book flights

The best time to find the cheapest flights to Dubai in the UAE tends to be during the low season – between June and September. Due to the country’s geographical position and subtropical climate, temperatures and humidity are very high. Most tourists choose to visit Dubai between November and March when the temperatures are milder. This is the high season that sees airfares skyrocketing – it’s wise to book the flights well in advance.

Bear in mind that plane tickets usually don’t get cheaper closer to the departure date. Even these reasonably priced flights in the low season sell out quite far ahead of the date of travel – it pays to book your ticket well in advance. The best time to buy can vary among airlines but the golden time for domestic flights usually falls between 3 weeks and 8 weeks before the departure. For international flights, give yourself even more time: start checking ticket prices at least 2-6 months beforehand to find an affordable flight.

There is one main rule airlines’ price algorithm use: the fewer seats an airline has left on a flight, the more expensive those available seats will be. Knowing how the flight ticket pricing work, will give you an advantage when booking the next flight

Here are some examples of flights departing from popular airports. The prices are updated in real-time.

11 most effective travel hacks for Dubai and Dubai International Airport

  1. Check airfares for Abu Dhabi first. If you are heading to Dubai, you may consider flying to Abu Dhabi (flights are cheaper than to Dubai) and then taking a direct bus to Dubai (less than 1.5 hours ride).
  2. Watch for a good sale. Most airlines publish their web promotions frequently. To get a great bargain be sure to watch the airline sales over the course of several weeks.
  3. Join Air Traveler Club. A proven way to get great prices on flights to Dubai is to become a member of the Air Traveler Club. It is free to join, and deals that the members get every week are priced at least 40% below the average airfare for a given route. Some of these 'hacker fares' can save you up to 80% (!) on your next flight.
  4. Check your terminal. If you are transiting via Dubai, double-check which terminal your next flight is from. Dubai International airport is huge and getting between terminals involves taking a shuttle bus or the metro. Typically, most international flights depart from Terminal 1, regional or low-cost carriers use Terminal 2, and Emirates, FlyDubai, and Qantas fly from Terminal 3.
  5. Download the UAE Wallet app. Flying out of Terminal 3? For a speedier transit at Dubai International Airport, download the UAE Wallet app and register your travel details. Now, you will be able to use your smartphone to go through the smart gates. Yes – you won’t even need to get out your passport!
  6. Connect to Wi-Fi. Dubai International Airport offers fast, unlimited free Wi-Fi that you can use immediately upon arrival. Use your phone to look for networks, select "DXB Free WIFI" then press "Get online now".
  7. Chill in the Zen Garden. You'll find it at Terminal 3, between gates B7 and B27. It's an area that comprises a fish pond, lush trees, and benches – a perfect spot for relax or reading a book. Zen garden also provides a play area for children to keep them occupied.
  8. Buy a lounge pass. For 180 AED (~ 49 USD / ~67 AUD) per person, you can enter into the Marhaba lounges at Terminals 1, 2, and 3. You’ll find there good seating, free wi-fi, an international food buffet, and showers (for a small extra charge).
  9. Grab a Go Dubai Card. This card allows you to save on the admission rates to 45 emirates' top attractions. It will also help you avoid multiple cash transactions – just show your digital Go Dubai Card and enjoy the experience.
  10. Avoid airport currency exchanges. Airports are infamous for making an exuberant amount of money from their currency exchanges due to the extremely high margins – Dubai International Airport is no exception. Plan ahead and exchange some money for dirhams at home.
  11. Make use of loyalty programs. Choose an airline that suits you the best then stick to it. By becoming 'a regular' you will be able to make use of its loyalty program and earn "miles" (or points) – not only for flying but also for everyday expenses. Points earned this way often add up over time and this could give you a chance of significant price reductions on your next flights, special perks, or even free travel. If you often fly with Emirates, opt for Skywards, with Qatar Airways – for Privilege Club, with Etihad – for Etihad Guest, etc.

Stopover options in Asia Pacific

Direct flights to your Asian destination can be expensive. So if you’re looking at a long-haul trip with at least one connection, rather than simply transiting an airport, why not take an opportunity and plan a longer stopover? It won’t only break up your journey but will become a legitimate part of your vacation.

When booking flight tickets, many airlines include a stopover en route to your final destination. Those flights are usually cheaper than non-stop flights, and they can be a great way of seeing more than one place on your trip. You can often add it at no additional cost, just by looking for multi-city flights with longer layovers.

Check flight prices and other details for these great stopover options when traveling to countries of Asia and Pacific:
