Emirates has rolled out a new online platform where travellers can build their owned tailored itinerary to Dubai, and the United Arab Emirates.
Dubbed Dubai Experience, the tool enables users to marry flights, hotels, attractions, dining, leisure experiences and more. The easy-to-use itinerary planner provides details such as estimated duration, location map and cost, allowing customers to confidently plan and maximise their visit to the emirate. For first-time travellers, there are pre-curated itineraries that can be used as a starting point.
Barry Brown, Divisional Vice President of Australiasia said: “We are proud to promote the very best that Dubai and the UAE have to offer on Dubai Experience, which is fully integrated with emirates.com. This powerful platform offers Australians the ability to plan their Dubai journeys and stopovers, and benefit from exclusive rates and expertly curated recommendations.
“Through the Dubai Experience platform, Emirates aims to add value to our customers and enrich their journeys, and ultimately drive more people to visit our beautiful hub in the UAE. We will continue to add more exciting content to Dubai Experience so that Australians can experience more of what our Dubai Hub has to offer.”
Currently, Emirates’ Australian customers can build rich and customised itineraries from a selection of over 100 hotels and 200 activities – all of which can be added onto an existing Emirates flight booking or created around a new one.
