We know that buying travel insurance isn't the most exciting part of planning your trip to the United Arab Emirates, but it is important. Read on for some tips on what to consider before selecting a policy:
- The cost of your holiday - You may have to cancel your holiday and although that's extremely disappointing, it is nice to know that you may be able get your money back
- Think about the activities that you might do while you're away - We cover more than 50 adventure activities as standard, such as bungee jumping, and we can cover other more extreme activities too. Just give us a call on the number at the top of the page

Did you know that...?
- More than four out of five people living in the United Arab Emirates aren't actually Emirati. They're expats who have adopted the UAE as their home. Most can't become citizens and have to return home as soon as they retire or stop working.
- How do you keep the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building, clean? With over 24,000 windows the 830m-high skyscraper in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, uses a combo of people on wires, special bucket machines, and trained falcons to kill pigeons.
- Salukis, one of the oldest known breeds of hunting dog, are the must-have fashion accessory for street-cred youngsters in urban areas of the United Arab Emirates. They're the only teenagers who don't mind going out with a dog on their arm.
- The United Arab Emirates stopped driving on the left and switched to the right on 15 August 1966. It probably didn't cause too many headaches, as there were only 13 cars registered in Dubai in 1968!
- The prime minister of the United Arab Emirates, the Emir of Dubai, is worth US$4 billion. His neighbour, the Emir of Abu Dhabi, is worth US$15 billion. He's also the UAE's president. Great public sector pay? No, the roles are all hereditary.
- The Dubai World Cup in the United Arab Emirates has a US$10 million prize, making it the richest horse race in the world. Don't expect to have a trackside flutter though - gambling is illegal in the UAE.
- How much would you be willing to pay for a personalised number plate? Saeed Abdul Ghaffar Khouri of the United Arab Emirates parted with £7.2 million for the registration plate "1". Maybe he had trouble remembering longer ones.
