Dubai stopover packages and activities

Dubai is on lots of major flight routes to Europe, and you only need a few days in Dubai to see the sights, making it a great place for a stopover to break up your long haul flight. Contrary to popular belief, a Dubai stopover doesn't have to break the bank - we have a range of packages available to suit all budgets.
