Qatar Travel Festival sale (extended through Wednesday)
The sale has been extended two more days!
The Qatar Travel Festival by Qatar airways is one of the biggest promotions of the year. Many fares are 50% off (including our top picks below) through January 18th at 11:59pm ET. Available for flights 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 high-tech new Airbus A350 (pictured in the lead photo) out of New York, Philadelphia and Boston. Qatar has the newest fleet in the airline industry.
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. This isn’t always the best deal but it’s worth a try.
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 a 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.

I’m glad to see they extended this great sale. 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!
