Dubai  is famously known as the entertainment capital of the Middle East which attracts many party lovers from all over the world.

Although Dubai promotes such an image, it still forbids the nationals that practice Islam to indulge in any of the entertaining services offered, mostly partying in clubs and drinking alcohol.

Get insured

"It will never happen to me" said every person before it happened to them. Accidents happen at home and abroad. The difference is that they are usually more costly when you're in a foreign country. That's why travelling without insurance is a bad idea. There's just no excuse to put yourself in such a risk.

>>voice from the crowd<< Travel insurance is too expensive!

>>voice of the common sense<< If you can't afford travel insurance then you can't afford to travel.

Don't take chances and get yourself insured now. Check out our budget travel insurance page.
