Travel to both the UK and Ireland with ‘One Break, Two Cities’ campaign

GCC tourists offered twin city UK travel packages

DUBAI, September 20, 2015

GCC travellers looking to visit UK and Ireland can now do so with Tourism Ireland and VisitBritain’s new ‘One Break, Two Cities’ campaign.

This package was developed to promote the Irish Short Stay Visa Waiver programme, which permits GCC travellers in possession of a valid UK ‘C’ general visa to enter Ireland without requiring an additional Irish visa. The campaign will encourage visitors to the UK to include Ireland as an add-on destination when making their travel plans.

“With such a wide variety of things to see and do in Ireland and Great Britain it’s hard to settle on just one destination. The good news is that, with the flexible ‘One Break, Two Cities’ package visitors can easily combine two or more cities, across two countries, in one memorable holiday,” said Amanda Burns, Tourism Ireland’s regional manager Middle East and Asia.

“Visitors simply pick their city break based on our recommended three day itineraries for multiple cities across Ireland and Britain, giving them an easy and flexible holiday that is tailor-made to suit their personal tastes and interests.” 

The ‘One break, Two Cities’ combinations feature any city in Ireland and Britain, including suggested routes such as Cardiff to Dublin, Edinburgh to Cork or London to Belfast.

‘With good airline connectivity from the GCC to the regional airports across Britain and to Ireland, it has become easier for Gulf visitors to combine a Britain and Ireland holiday. The twin cities package offer a combination of British and Irish charm, culture, hospitality and unique experiences for both families and the adventurous millennial visitors,’ said Sumathi Ramanathan, regional manager - Asia Pacific & Middle East. – TradeArabia News Service
