The Dubai Holiday Experience

December 24 – 30,  2020

The 2020 Dubai Holiday Experience is going to be one for the memory books!  We are staying at a fabulous hotel in a prime location, in the Emirates’ most famous city, and have planned an itinerary that will give you equal parts of culture & chill for you during the holiday season!

The 2020 Dubai Holiday Experience Includes:

  • Roundtrip transportation to/from Dubai hotel.
  • 6 nights at a 5 Star Hotel, Luxury City View Room with daily breakfast – 1 King or 2 Twin Beds by Request.
  • (Dec 24 – Arrival Date): Group Meet & Greet Dinner (Dinner included this day).
  • (Dec 25): Christmas Brunch… because… you can’t go to Dubai without experiencing brunch!  After brunch, choose to kick back at the day party… or spend the rest of your day on your own exploring Dubai (Breakfast included this day).
  • (Dec 26): After breakfast, we will head out with our guide on a Dubai City Tour.  We will make a visit to the Burj Khalifa Observation Deck, head off to experience the hustle and bustle of the Gold souk and Spice souk (Breakfast included this day).
  • (Dec 27): After breakfast, we are heading out on a day trip to Abu Dhabi where we will visit famous mosques and markets (Breakfast + Lunch included this day).
  • (Dec 28): You are free to enjoy the morning how you wish. In the afternoon we will head to the desert camp where you will be dune bashing, sand boarding, and even have the opportunity to ride camels (Breakfast + Lunch included this day).
  • (Dec 29): Enjoy the day how you wish. There will be optional activities offered, so you have the chance to hang with the group — or explore Dubai on your own.  There is so much to see + do! In the evening, meet the crew for our farewell dinner  (Breakfast + Dinner included this day).
  • (Dec 30) Departure day! Check out and transfer to the airport for onward flight home.

Travel Insurance Details

It is recommended that you purchase travel insurance, so that there is some measure of coverage in the event an unfortunate incident happens to you where you need medical assistance, or an incident arises pre-travel that prohibits you from taking the trip.

Our preferred insurance vendor is Travel Guard.  Once you sign up for this travel experience, you will receive information on travel insurance plans, so that you can customize what works for you and your situation. There are packages that you can add “cancel for any reason” waivers onto, provided they are purchased within 14 days of making your trip deposit.  This additional coverage gives you peace of mind as you are able to receive 50% – 75% of your funds paid (less the cost of the insurance) should you need to cancel your trip outside of the covered reasons.

Cultured Vacations does not handle the process of purchasing your insurance — we just share the information and instructions and you’ll go online yourself to manage.

Passports Are Needed for This Trip

Passports must be valid through July 1, 2021 to be able to travel.

Payment Plans & Cancellation Policy

This trip is $2500/person, based on 2 people per room; $3300/person based on 1 person per room.

Payment Schedule

  • $250/person deposit to lock in your rates & availability
    • Please note — if you are traveling with a roommate, we will need both deposits to secure your spaces
  • Remaining balance split equally over remaining months
  • Final Payment Due October 3, 2020

Please be aware, it is required that you make a payment every month to keep your trip in good standing.  Accounts that are more than 3 months delayed will be in threat of cancellation.  Please be advised we will not accept a deposit payment and remainder due at final payment October 3, 2020.


Change Policy

All changes will be assessed a $200/reservation change fee to change any component after the trip is booked.

Also – please note, once deposits are made, you are locked in with roommates. If you would like to get a “new roommate” you will need to cancel the existing reservation (and forego funds paid if insurance hasn’t been purchased) and start over with a new reservation.
