Dubai emerges as favoured destination for families

Dubai has become one of the attractive destinations for the tourists as there has been an increase of 64 per cent in family holiday bookings to this dream city in the first quarter of the year, claims Travel Republic.

The sudden surge in family bookings have been attributed to the product choice, more affordable flights and guaranteed sun for the heightened interest during this period.

Dubai has also risen into OTA’s top 10 destinations for 2017 with an overall increase of 39 per cent across all bookings year on year, with family holidays showcasing the biggest growth.

Managing Director of the Travel Republic, Ian Simmonds said, “The increase of family holidays to Dubai from the beginning of 2017 demonstrates an ever growing demand for the new destinations that many families haven’t before.”

He added, “Dubai is a destination that has always seen growing popularity with Travel Republic customers, with the majority of our bookings coming from couples’ holidays, so it is particularly pleasing to see such a strong growth and enthusiasm amongst our family customers to take advantage of affordable flights and luxury accommodation in the jewel of the Middle East.”
