I took the free Emirates Dubai Connect (Hotel Accomodation) service at Dubai. Below are the details for the fellow travellers. The service can be availed only if the connection is more than 8 hours at Dubai in emirates flight.I am writing this in a bit of hurry so forgive me for the unclear information and mistakes.
Below is the sector I travelled.
Originating airport : New Delhi
Transit : Dubai
Destination : Amsterdam
If you are having 8 hours transit in Dubai then after booking the tickets, register for Dubai Connect online from the emirates website. You will get the confirmation within a day or two if you are eligible.
Inform at the checkin counter about the dubai connect. They will give you three vouchers.
After getting down at Dubai move towards the immigration counters. Just before the immigration counters go to Emirates help desk. They will ask you to go to the counter next door where they will keep your one voucher and put a sticker of AED 120 on one of two voucher left with you.
Move straight to immigration and show the vouchers, passport and next boarding pass.
The immigration guy will stamp your passport.
After immigration go to the emirates desk near the exit.
There they will assign you a hotel and will arrange for a cab to hotel.
Cab will drop you to hotel. The return cab will also be arranged by emirates which you can enquire at hotel.
You can ask me for other questions which you might have, i will try to answer it if I am aware.
