how much could UAE residents save save on holiday in UK




Richard Branson’s Virgin Atlantic has introduced a Brexit calculator game to help UAE residents save money on UK trips.

The dirham is at a record high against the pound at present, with an exchange rate of just AED10 to two British pounds, as a result of uncertainty around the implications of the UK’s vote to leave the European Union (EU).

Virgin Atlantic says there has “never been a better time to take advantage of the savings”.

Its new Brexit calculator enables prospective visitors to the UK to select from a range of popoular tourist attractions such as afternoon tea, watching a football match or attending a play, and calculate the cost pre- and post-Brexit vote.

Nick Parker, head Of India & Middle East for Virgin Atlantic, said: “The Brexit calculator is a fun way to explore quintessential British tourist activities, and work out how much you could save on holiday at the same time.”

Brexit savings (AED):
Afternoon Tea Was 329 Now 279
A River Cruise along the Thames Was 356 Now 302
Buying a Lordship Was 130 Now 110
Attending a West End Musical Was 664 Now 563
A week-long stay in a 5-star hotel Was 37,460 Now 31,771
