Dubai offers so much to keep you busy and happy throughout your stay. You must get there first. Book in advance and you pay the full fare. Smart travellers do not book in advance. They wait and search for last minute travel deals. It is no secret that most airlines always have some vacant seats they want to fill and if you approach a travel agent or an airline’s office, you could get last minute travel deals Dubai your destination at an affordable price. Enquiring with each travel agent and airline may be a lengthy process. A shortcut is to go online and visit websites that serve as deal aggregators displaying last minute travel deals from various airlines.
