Get away to... Dubai

It's not too late to follow in the footsteps of Becks, Posh, Brooklyn and the other England World Cup team families and enjoy some rest and recreation at Jumeirah Beach in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

Travelbag is offering five-night breaks at the Oasis Beach Hotel in the same resort for pound;473 per person (based on two people sharing), including return flights from Heathrow with Qatar Airlines, breakfast and taxes. The hotel overlooks the white sands bordering the Arabian Gulf and, when you tire of dipping those aching metatarsals in the sea, the air-conditioned hotel also has a swimming pool, beauty salon, sauna and watersports.

Dubai has some of the world's best shopping - even if you can't quite stretch to gold chains and ingots or Persian carpets , the airport duty free is the best in the world and it always seems to be running a raffle for a sports car. Offer is valid for travel until 16 August. Travelbag: 0870 890 1460; www.travelbag.co.uk.
