2. Take care of your personal belongings

Eid holidays offer a welcome break from our daily routines, which often involve long hours away from home. If you are traveling, you may be away from home for several days. Make sure your home is safe. Remember to turn off the stove and secure doors and gates. To conserve electricity and avoid short circuits, make sure that some electronic gadgets are switched off. Do you travel by public transport? No problem. But don't forget to keep track of your belongings. Keep track of what you bring to make sure nothing is left behind or taken by someone else.

3. Browse for good Eid al-Fitr deals

To stimulate interest and attract customers during the Eid al-Fitr holidays, a number of restaurants and accommodation facilities in the UAE and the greater Middle East region are offering attractive offers and exclusive discounts. Check the websites and social media pages of your favorite restaurants, entertainment venues and accommodation providers for special offers and promotions to maximize your savings.

4. Back light

When you travel on Eid holidays, try to pack as little as possible. In addition to saving you time and frustration, packing light will help you avoid paying extra for extra luggage and gain more flexibility while on vacation.

5. Buy travel insurance

Remember to consider travel insurance as an important safety precaution when planning your Eid holiday. Travel insurance provides financial security and protection against unforeseen circumstances such as lost luggage, medical problems and trip cancellations. Having travel insurance can give you extra peace of mind and ensure that you are prepared for the unexpected while traveling. When choosing a travel insurance policy, make sure that it meets your needs and provides comprehensive coverage for your Eid vacation.
