Before you take flight, here are our Top Travel Tips for United Arab Emirates

The culture in UAE is very different to that of the UK, at Just Travel Cover we have set out our top travel tips to make you have a safe and memorable holiday to the United Arab Emirates.

There’s more to Dubai than skyscrapers

Go for the luxury, but stay for the culture. There’s more to Dubai than excessive spending and modern architecture. The city is a combination of new and old, urban and rural. Make time to explore both. 

No PDA

Public signs of affection are frowned upon in the city of Dubai. This includes kissing, hugging, and everything in between. These acts are classified as more than just socially unacceptable, but illegal and can lead to an arrest.

Respect the sun

Summer in Dubai runs from May until October. The summer months average 45°C and although air conditioning can be found in every skyscraper, visiting the beach requires A LOT of sunscreen and hydration. 

Appreciate the culture

The westernisation of Dubai only goes so far; Dubai is generally a conservative country, and the population is predominantly Muslim and traditional. It is important to understand the customs and traditions of Dubai before travelling there to familiarise yourself with the country, making a conscious effort to learn about its people and their traditions.

Shop til you drop

Dubai is the capital of retail therapy. Millions of tourists flock to this city to experience its indulgent lifestyle. Travellers from all over the world come here to shop for gold, diamonds, jewellery, perfumes, shoes, luxury items, collector’s items, electronics, carpets, home decor, vintage pieces, spices, and so much more.

Where is Dubai considered for Travel Insurance?

Dubai is located in the United Arab Emirates, which is what you’d need to select when getting a quote for a single trip policy. If you’re looking for an annual policy you will need to choose ‘worldwide’ rather than ‘European’ to ensure you’re covered for visiting the UAE/Dubai. We offer single trip, annual multi-trip, and cruise travel insurance with no upper age limit, and cover for hundreds of pre-existing medical conditions. Be sure to read the full terms and conditions of any travel insurance cover you purchase and contact our team at Just Travel Cover if you need further guidance or are unsure about any aspects of your policy.
