Rolls out Go Expo 2020 deals for travellers headed to the UAE Expo 2020 this festive season

According to Agoda’s booking data Dubai ranks no 1 destination for Indians to date in 2021, after bumping last year’s top destinations Thailand (no 1) and China (formerly no 2) into second and seventh spot respectively. With so much to see and do, and a short-haul journey, make Dubai most preferred spot whether travelling for business or leisure, or a bit of both.

Scenery, food, and arts and culture are the top three reasons Indians travel, according to Agoda’s travel trends survey 2021, so with the holidays right around the corner and further easing of travel restrictions, Agoda shares three reasons why it’s a good idea to consider travelling to Dubai this festive season.

The opening of the UAE Expo 2020 this October (until March 2022) has travellers making up for lost time, by heading to the experiential exhibit located between Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The UAE Expo is a symbiosis of sustainability, food, and culture, bringing together 192 countries under one roof, taking visitors on a world tour through an immersive exhibition. From educational theme weeks, covering climate to space and well-being, catch stage productions, music shows, street theatre, art & culture, and innovative architecture.

According to the release, one can grab a great value deal via Agoda’s Go Expo 2020 campaign, which brings travellers a range of hotel deals, bookable on desktop and app, when booking for travel dates from now until 31 March, 2022. Travellers can get an additional 12% discount on using a Visa credit card to make their travel bookings of even greater value.

“With international travel opening up globally, Dubai is an amazing hotspot of cosmopolitan delights. This year’s UAE Expo – a playground of innovation bringing together coveted companies, food, culture – provides an even greater excuse to visit and for Indian travellers to take some of their great maiden international trips post-pandemic border closures.” said Krishna Rathi, Country Director – India, Sri Lanka and Nepal, Agoda.
