Oman pricing guide

Oman is not one of the Middle East’s cheaper destinations so this isn’t an inexpensive choice. However, we will work to your budget and will be able to suggest hotels to suit. The exact price will depend on how many of you there are, when you are travelling, what level of hotels you want to stay in and whether you stay in one large family room or have children and adults in separate rooms.

One major factor in determining the price in Oman is whether you choose to self-drive or be escorted by an English speaking driver-guide. It is of course cheaper to self-drive.

Price guidelines

We like our tours to be accessible to as wide a range of people as possible.

A standard Oman itinerary, escorted by a driver-guide, will start from around £5,400 for a 12-day holiday for a family of four based on mid-range hotels. This excludes international flights. If you choose to self-drive, the price for a 12-day holiday will start from around £4,200.

There are also a handful of very luxurious boutique hotels, particularly on the beach. If you would prefer to stay in these, the price will start from around £7,000 (for a 12-day holiday for a family of four) for a driver-escorted trip, £5,800 for a self-drive trip.

International flights

All prices exclude international flights. These start from £400 per person direct with Oman Air although prices over peak periods may be a lot higher.

Direct flights take just over 7 hours. Indirect flights take from 9 hours.

We will be very happy to provide a flight quote for you from your nearest airport. Please ask us for details.

Note that hotels in Oman book up a long way in advance for Christmas and the New Year. Please book as far in advance as possible if you plan to travel at this time.

Flights are available for booking approximately 11 months in advance. If travelling during UK school holidays we suggest that you book your flights as far in advance as possible to get the best fares. Prices will rise considerably the closer to departure that you book.

Age limits

Our holidays are open for all age groups and will be tailored to the ages of your children.
