We are due to stay in Dubai from late December till the New Year – a typically expensive time in what is a very popular “school holidays” option.
It came as a little something of an amazement to me, therefore, when I was able to book these prime December dates at the Conrad Dubai, FOR A FAMILY OF FOUR, for an astonishing £211 per night :
Now there is a small hack to this, bear with me:
When I searched for rooms for for 2 adults and 2 children, as was required, the cheapest option was a fairly staggering £2,305 a night:
However, when I searched for 2 adults and ONE child, I was given the £211 option. As you can see from the booking page above, the £211 option is for TWO DOUBLE BEDS. Given that my two kids are both youngsters, they can easily share a double bed. With that in mind, I was able to secure a room for less than 10% of the price – a lovely option based on i) a discounted rate in the sale and ii) a favourite little “Hilton hack” of mine.
Now, I don’t expect everyone to rush to buy family rooms in Dubai at knock-down prices, but this is a very good example of a really good price in the current Hilton EMEA sale, nicely supplemented by a neat little trick to keep the price right down.
