It is a truth universally acknowledged that travel is stressful. It’s easy to spend hours in a haze of inspiration, scrolling through beautiful location after beautiful location but it’s a lot harder to make a holiday happen. Thankfully help is at hand in the form of a new wave of websites who believe that traveling should be leisurely and stress-free. In the Middle East, the need-to-know website is HolidayMe. Based in Dubai, Riyadh, and Pune as well as the UAE and Saudi Arabia, HolidayMe is the first of its kind: a customized booking portal in the Middle East. HolidayMe makes it simpler to journey across the globe to the 300+ cities on offer. From the beginning to the end, the site seeks to make your trip more relaxed and organized, meaning you can finally burst that repetitive cycle and see the world.
The first step is choosing where you want to go. Simply search for the country or city you would like to visit and select an itinerary that matches your desires. There are over 1,000 itineraries on the site, but the website also allows people to craft their own trips, which is especially good for seasoned travelers. And even for those who prefer to use HolidayMe’s existing itineraries, you can add one of the 8,000 extra activities on offer into your schedule to ensure a unique, meaningful trip away. Whether you’re interested in sightseeing, food, tours by bike or even jumping in a helicopter and seeing a city from above, you’re guaranteed to find something to suit your every whim.
HolidayMe also offers an airport pickup and drop-off facility so you don’t need to worry about learning the local language to flag down a taxi. And to keep your friends and family at ease, it’s easy to share your itinerary with others so they can track your vacation from home. In all, HolidayMe is a website that inspires, enabling you to create and enjoy your ultimate cultural trip.
