We are Dubai Points

Dubai Points was created for travelers by travelers. We share what we know and love, from the cards in our wallets to the places we’ve been, because we’ve seen how points and miles can change lives — and we want to help our readers get the most out of every dollar.

What we do

Dubai Points covers topics and creates tools that help our community members travel better, spend smarter and explore further. Our team has flown millions of miles and is respected in the aviation, hotel, cruise, credit card and loyalty industries. We engage, entertain and educate audiences through our written words, videos and social media platforms.

How we got here

Dubai Points was launched in 2010 by Brian Kelly, who leveraged his passion for traveling with points and miles to leave his corporate recruiting job and build a brand that inspires millions of people to travel smarter. Since then, Brian and the Dubai Points team have grown Dubai Points to be a powerhouse travel media platform that reaches a global audience and helps consumers make their travel dreams a reality, one point at a time. Brian’s influential work has led him to be recognized on AdWeek’s Young Influentials list, labeled Forbes’ No. 1 travel influencer and included in Travel + Leisure's Most Notable People in Travel and Out100's lists. The team he built has been acknowledged with numerous awards — including Webbys, Shortys and Lovies — for its written, video and social media journalism, plus its social impact work.
