Thousands of international fans are coming to watch the most anticipated FIFA World Cup and finding themselves in a dilemma to find a place to stay. This is the time where Travel Agents can step in to help their customers.

They might be looking to stay right beside the airport to save travel time, and would want to experience a bit of Dubai as well while they’re here, their experience can be made a worthwhile one.


With the FIFA world cup coming up, Qatar has already started its preparations for the great football season. However, the accommodation facilities for the international visitors has become a problem.

With tourists coming from all over the world, Dubai has become one of the top destinations for vacations. Travel agents can start pitching their bookings in advance to their customers.

Dubai’s strong reputation for safe travel internationally has resulted in both domestic and international tourism growth. In a study in February 2022, occupancy was at almost 64%, while the length of stay showed a 12% increase from 4.1 nights to 4.6 nights.

There’s a plethora of options available in Dubai for soccer fans coming from all over the world to find perfect accommodations along with an amazing Dubai experience. 

Many new hotels have opened up recently, making it ideal to accommodate visitors coming to watch FIFA. Bookings are being made at an even faster pace, giving soccer fans an experience of the grandeur of Dubai as well.
