Skyscanner’s Travel Expert, Ayoub El Mamoun, comments, “With Eid Al Fitr just a month away, the majority of UAE travellers we surveyed are keen to make the most of their holidays with breaks to 2 weeks long. We’ve also witnessed a significant year-on-year increase in search destinations such as Kazakhstan, Seychelles and Cyprus as residents look to more culture focused travel, as well as relaxed holiday destinations this Eid Al Fitr break. For travellers still deciding on a destination to visit this upcoming break, a Skyscanner ‘Everywhere’ search is one of the easiest ways to be inspired. Ordered by cheapest price, a search to ‘Everywhere’ shows travellers all the destinations available for your desired travel departure. For example, a quick Everywhere search on Skyscanner reveals return flights to Türkiye from AED 864, Italy from AED 1,177 and Hungary from AED 1,467, round trip. If you already know your preferred destination, but are flexible on dates, use Skyscanner’s ‘up whole month’ tool to see the cheapest days to fly at a glance and pick the right deal for you.”
