Rehlat, one of the leading Online Travel Agencies (OTAs) in the MENA region, has entered into a partnership with Qatar Tourism Authority to drive tourism in Qatar.

Rehlat and Qatar Tourism invite tourists to explore the art, architecture, culture, adventure activities, and beautiful landscapes through campaigns offering in-depth guides on how to explore the country’s best-kept secrets. Rehlat data shows a steep surge in booking and searches in the region with the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 matches scheduled in the upcoming months.

Also, with Qatar’s unique advantage of being just a 6-hour flight from 80 percent of the world’s population, it is a preferred destination amongst travelers who are looking to explore a mix of cultural and leisure destinations.

Mr. Bader Al-Bader, CEO, Rehlat said that “We are excited to join hands with Qatar Tourism. The country is often a preferred choice for major conferences and business events, but it also has a different side to it that appeals to leisure travelers. As part of our campaigns, we aim to promote various upcoming destinations and activities that travelers can explore as a part of their travel and stay in Qatar. The region is bustling with activities that tourists can explore as part of short travel breaks with the GCC.”

Ms. Haya Al-Noaimi, Acting Head of the Promotion Department from Qatar Tourism stated that “Qatar offers a finely tuned balance of modernity and authenticity, which visitors from the region are very pleased to see and experience. With the current and upcoming pipeline of projects that includes everything from family-friendly theme parks to luxury stays and shopping destinations, we’re certain that Qatar will continue to prove a popular holiday choice for hundreds of thousands of visitors from the region. We are delighted to partner with Rehlat to shine a light on the best of what Qatar has to offer, whether for a short weekend getaway or an extended stay.”
