The Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) recently revealed that holiday homes have become an increasingly significant component of Dubai’s tourism industry, as reported by Khaleej Times.
Since July 2015, a total of 37 operators are now licensed to rent out holiday homes in Dubai, with close to 800 units registered in the holiday homes system.
Khaled bin Touq, executive director of licensing and classification sector at Dubai Tourism, said: “We have made great progress in setting up regulations for holiday homes. These are designed to benefit both home owners and guests.”
The holiday homes market play an important role in realising the emirate’s Tourism Vision for 2020, which aims to welcome 20 million visitors per year by the start of the next decade.
