Arriving in Riyadh

Book your flights to Riyadh and get ready to discover a way of life that it is truly unique to this part of the world and will leave you with memories that will last a lifetime.

Plan Your Riyadh Holiday

Those who are lucky enough to travel to Riyadh will experience first-hand the lifestyle and culture of the city that has maintained its traditional way of life and yet attained a cosmopolitan character. Experience the desert on a tour of the dunes or even take part in dune bashing, carried out in 4x4 SUVs. Visit the Al-Dir’iyyah, once the home of Saudi royalty with stunning surroundings or for something a little more modern, visit Kingdom Centre, an architecturally impressive skyscraper.

Riyadh experiences some very hot days during the summer months and some extremely cold nights during the winters. Book your tickets to Riyadh avoiding these times of year if possible. Cheap hotels in Riyadh, however, are easier to find during these quieter times of the year. To ensure you get the flight you want, we recommend booking in advance and don’t forget that quality flights deals to Riyadh can be found in the Deals section of our website.

Plan Your Dubai Holiday

The reasons to travel to Dubai are myriad and focus on primarily commerce and relaxation. People come for the desert, the extravagant collection of shopping malls, the souks, the golden beaches, the museums, the contemporary attractions and for Dubai’s reputation as “place to do business” in the Arabian Gulf. In 2010 Dubai was the 7th most visited city in the world.

The climate in Dubai is a subtropical desert with scattered humidity throughout the year. During the off-peak season, especially in July and August, temperatures swell and at times can exceed 45 degrees. Travellers seeking cheap hotels in Dubai should attempt to arrive during the off-peak season, but should be prepared for very warm temperatures. If you wish to experience the full range of diverse activities that are available, we recommend that you book your tickets to Dubai as soon as you can and travel in the peak season. We additionally advise that you consult our Deals section to find the best flight deals to Dubai all year-round.
