Dubai is one of the places open to visitors from around the world in conjunction with testing, so the city is seeing quite a bit of tourism. If you’re flying to Dubai on Emirates (as most people visiting the city are), then it’s worth being aware of a promotion that has been brought back.
With “My Emirates Pass” you can save money at 450+ restaurants, leisure destinations, and retail outlets, across the United Arab Emirates. The discounts vary, though they can be as much as 50%. You can find the full list of partners here.
As you’d expect, there are some terms to be aware of:
- My Emirates Pass is valid through September 30, 2021 (though it may be extended — only time will tell)
- In order to use My Emirates Pass, you need to present your Emirates boarding pass for travel between January 1 and September 30, 2021, along with a photo ID; a single boarding pass from the offer period will do the trick, so you can use it months later
- The savings are only valid for the person listed on the boarding pass, unless stated otherwise in the terms (though quite a few offers explicitly list that they are valid for a larger group)
- You can use your boarding pass as often as you’d like for savings
Many people living in the UAE are already eligible for big discounts all over the place (for example, Emirates employees can save up to 50% on many things around town), though if you’re not eligible or are just visiting, this is a fantastic way to save money around the UAE.
Dubai is popular with tourists right now, given the warm weather and that the city is open in conjunction with testing. If you are headed to Dubai on Emirates, make sure you check out My Emirates Pass for an opportunity to save money with all kinds of retailers.
This is a smart promotion — the point of Emirates isn’t just to transport people, but also to get them to visit Dubai. Offering people further savings for visiting certain retailers is a win-win.
Is anyone headed to Dubai, and plane on using My Emirates Pass?
