Eyes on Dubai:
Skyscanner saw a +213% increase in searches to Dubai for travel in 2021 (on 4th August compared to the previous day)***** 

Laura Lindsay, Destination Expert at Skyscanner, comments: “UK travellers are jumping at the chance of a summer holiday, with the rules for vaccinated travellers permitting much anticipated trips to traditional favourites like Spain, Portugal and France. The addition of the UAE to the amber list will drive searches for trips into the autumn to take advantage of the climate and luxury escapes. The list of quarantine free destinations for unvaccinated travellers is smaller, but summer sun can still be enjoyed in Malta and Croatia. While the latest addition of Germany and Austria means city breaks in Berlin and Vienna are once again on the cards.”
