Qatar Travel Festival sale on Economy and Business Class
The Qatar Travel Festival recently announced by Qatar Airways is their largest promotion of the year, and one of the bigger promotions of any airline. Many fares are 50% off through January 16th. Flights from many US cities to almost anywhere in the world from now through December ’17. In case you weren’t aware Qatar is rated one the “World’s Best Airlines” by Skytrax.
Flying any of the Persian Gulf-based airlines (Emirates, Etihad, Qatar) will far exceed any experience you’ll receive on any of the US domestic airlines. Qatar also flies the fancy new Airbus A350 (pictured above) out of New York, Philadelphia, and Boston.
Besides the sale, you’ll earn 2x Qmiles when you book, and any ticket purchases during the sale will also be entered into a drawing to win several prizes.
Thrifty Tip #1: Book directly through Qatar and use promo code “VISA” when searching to get an additional 15% off. You must pay with a Visa credit card.
Thrifty Tip #2: Some flights do have longer layovers in Doha, Qatar, so make sure you take advantage of free tours of the city.
Thrifty Tip #3: If you have an overnight layover of more than 8 hours, Qatar Airways will arrange accommodation, entry visas, airport transfers, and meals to passengers facing extended transit times in Doha.
The Qatar Travel Festival sale only happens a couple times a year and offers significant savings. Take a look through the list of destinations in both economy and business class. Flying the A350 in business class is one of the best ways to fly, and can be found for around $1,750 round-trip from NYC & Los Angeles to Singapore. This is an insane deal given the fact that it’s one of the best business class products in the world. Even I booked it!
