Oman pricing guide

All our holidays are individual and tailored for you and your family. 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. The price will also vary according to how many of you there are, 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.

Price guidelines

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

A standard self-drive Oman itinerary will usually start from around £6,000 for a family of four, based on mid-range hotels. Many families choose to upgrade on the beach, in which case the price is likely to start from £7,000. This excludes international flights.

If you are travelling on a tighter budget than this, please let us know and we can suggest more simple hotels that will enable us to bring the price down.

If you would like to be escorted by an English speaking driver-guide, a 12-day trip will start from around £7,000 for a 12-day holiday for a family of four based on mid-range hotels. If you upgrade on the beach the price will start from around £8,000. This excludes international flights.

For a shorter trip of 7 days, prices will start from £4,000 (excluding flights) for a family of four based on self-drive and £4,800 with a driver.

International flights

All prices exclude international flights. These start from £500 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.
