We know that Emirates is one of the ultimates in luxury experience in the skies. Ever wanted to be like that frugal travel guy with that cheek to cheek smile who makes us really envious of that ‘upgrade’ experience? Well, at least now we can get it on a discount!

How, you ask?

  1. Book your ticket from May 1 to 31, 2016, and must travel from May 1, 2016 to March 31, 2017
  2. Use the Promo Code: PHCITI1, and use your Citibank Philippines credit card to pay for your fare. For more details, here’s the full announcement from Citibank.
  3. Enjoy, and start bragging about your upcoming trip. You may or may not mention that you got the ticket on sale!.

How cheap are the flights, really?

I did a sample search on my own, and found that, well, most of the flights are not really 40% off of its original fare price. And actually, I wasn’t able to find a single fare that actually had a 40% discount. But a few hundred dollars (about $300) off your dream trip isn’t that bad, isn’t it?

Layover opportunity

If you happen to take advantage of the discount and fly with Emirates, know that you can receive free hotel accommodation and transfers to and from the hotel, which means you’ll also experience a free middle east style side trip in the golden city. If you have a stop-over time of six to eight hours, you are entitled to the free accommodation. Check them out here.

Hope this helps, and enjoy your trip!
