Emirates offers value-for-money packages

By Jonna Simon

Dubai is set to host its eleventh annual Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF). DSF has over the years grown to become the biggest shopping extravaganza in the world and DSF 2006 will be even bigger and better than ever before.

The event hosts the world’s biggest gold raffle, the world’s richest luxury car raffle and many other opportunities for visitors to win fantastic prizes. The entire city takes on a carnival atmosphere with plenty of entertainment and things to do for the entire family.
Emirates is one of the key sponsors of the DSF and is once again promoting the event by offering excellent value-for-money holiday packages for visitors from around the world. With prices starting from as little as $56 per person per night sharing, these exceptional packages are valid from January 4 till February 4.
The packages provide Emirates’ customers with a choice of accommodation from a range of 21 selected properties to suit all pockets and are for a minimum stay of three nights with the option to extend. The price includes breakfast, transfers between Dubai International Airport and the hotel by chauffeur-driven car and personalised meet-and-greet upon arrival. The packages are part of the worldwide drive by Emirates to bring more overseas visitors to Dubai.
The DSF 2006 packages are available for sales worldwide to all Emirates passengers regardless of the class of travel and also include waived stopover charges in Dubai for onward bound passengers; 10 per cent commission for travel agents; all accommodation-related taxes and service charges; Arabian Adventures welcome pack; and additional 10 kg free baggage allowance on return/onward flights from Dubai.
