Dreaming of a last minute summer getaway? Today might be the best time to book if you want to take advantage of Emirates seasonal fares.

The summer deal ends at midnight on Thursday August 15, so you’ll have to act quickly if you want to get a cut-price economy ticket with travel to a number of destinations included in the promotion.

Passengers can book to fly anytime between Sunday, August 25 and Monday, September 30. The discounted fares include all taxes, fees and surcharges.

A European summer: Munich, Prague, or Edinburgh

Where can you travel to? How about Europe, ideal if the summer weather has been getting you down. Emirates' summer offers includes flights to Munich from Dh2,445 where summer crowds are dwindling and the weather is warm by day and gloriously cool at night.

Economy fares to Prague start from Dh2,545. Add to this that the cost of food, drinks and entertainment in the Czech Republic capital are attractively low and it could be an ideal cut-price summer escape.

Further north, head to Scotland to revel in its natural beauty or go to the country's capital to catch the end of The Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the world's largest arts festival. Return fares to Glasgow or Edinburgh are less than Dh3,000.
