Most guests traveling with Qatar Airways via Doha probably won’t see to see much of the capital of Qatar. Except for the airport, of course. In order to change this, the airline is offering a Discover Qatar program, which allows you to stay at 4 or 5 -star hotels at extremely low rates.
Has been extended for travel until 31th December 2020!
For this offer, the airline is cooperating with the national tourism authority of Qatar. Hotels can be booked directly through a special website that Qatar Airways has set up specifically for this matter.
Booking a flight that includes a stopover can be done via qatarairways.com. Choose Book on the main page and then the Multi-City option. Your search could look like the following example:
If you don’t want to use Qatar’s website and would prefer to book via an OTA or a regular travel agency, you can do so. Just make sure that your ticket starts with “157”.
Depending on the fare, a stopover in Doha that lasts for more than 24 hours can lead to a higher price. This is mostly due to additional taxes and fees since you won’t just simply change aircraft but arrive in Doha and then depart again separately. But more often then not, the discount you get on the hotel rate will compensate for the higher ticket price.
