Having only recently splashed out a small fortune for our summer flights to the UK, a good friend imparted to me her money-saving scheme that has seen her save a stash of cash on flights over the past few years.
Flying from the UK to here is so much cheaper. So she bought a single flight from Dubai to the UK and since then has always bought a flexible return ticket from the UK to Dubai. The emphasis here is on the word flexible because you want to be able to easily alter the date of your return flight – even up to a year later to coincide with your next visit ‘home’.
OK the initial single flight felt a bit steep, being almost the same as the cost of a return fare, but since then she’s been spending a hell of a lot less on flights than we have. Maybe next year?
About this blog...
I set up this blog to reveal what real life is like here in the UAE - the good and the bad. I'll chat about what I've been up to, Dubai news and developments, my thoughts about expat life here (and in general) and reports about my holidays and adventures in the region (travel is my bag after all).
