Simple Tips to Make the Most of this Dubai Expo Season

By Manoj Tudu, Marketing

Dubai Expo 2020 observed a grand opening with more than 4 lakh ticketed visits from more than 175 nations in just the first 10 days. The Expo fair has successfully created a wave of excitement and urge to travel, with pavilions spread across 4 kilometres, featuring the best of the world in one place. 

The Indian Pavilion has managed to create a riot of colours and spectacle, displaying the perfect amalgamation of technology, history, tradition and culture. An innovation that stole the show was a machine that allows visitors to drink water from the atmosphere!

The celebrations are all set to get bigger and better with more than 62 live sessions spread across 182 days. The event has a little something for everyone, ranging from food, dance, music, technology, culture and much more.

As travel is picking up pace, Indians are spending more and more money on travel, giving rise to the urge to explore overseas destinations. This can be seen as a perfect opportunity to exploit and make a profit from the Dubai Expo.

1. Regulations Made Easy

One of the biggest challenges for the tourism industry in the post-pandemic world has been to keep up with the rules and regulations. Thankfully, the problem has been taken care of in Dubai. 

The UAE authorities announced special relaxations on Covid norms for Indian travellers in lieu of the upcoming expo. Indian travellers with tourist visas or work visas will be allowed to enter the UAE without too many restrictions during this period of time.

Requirements for passengers from India include:

  • A valid negative COVID‑19 PCR test certificate with a QR code for a test conducted within 48 hours, validity should be calculated from the time the sample was collected, prior to departure from an approved health facility
  • A rapid PCR test report with a QR code for a test conducted at the departure airport within six hours of departure

2. Sell Tailor-Made Itineraries!

The ultimate key to happy and satisfied customers has always been flexibility. Adding a slight hint of personal touch to itineraries based on customer needs would make you stand out in the crowd.

While it may be tempting to opt for a ready-made package, it often limits the possibilities of exploration for the traveller. We at TravClan understand the real-world challenges faced by agents, therefore we have come up with a simple solution!

Popular non-stop flights operate from Delhi, Mumbai, Kochi and Hyderabad. You can offer affordable options by opting for indirect flights connecting from domestic destinations like Amritsar, Lucknow etc.
