Qatar Stopover 2.0: The world’s best value stopover upgraded

If you thought the world's best stopover couldn't get any better, think again. After all, this is Qatar we're talking about, and like everything else in this eclectic hub of culture and innovation, everything is continually evolving to get better and better.

If you thought the world’s best stopover couldn’t get any better, think again. After all, this is Qatar we’re talking about, and like everything else in this eclectic hub of culture and innovation, everything is continually evolving to get better and better.

Let’s start by recapping Qatar’s hugely popular value Stopover program: When you travel to your long-haul destination in or out of Australia with award-winning Qatar Airways, you can turn one holiday into two with Visit Qatar’s incredible stopover packages from only AU$21 per person per night.

Yes, you read correctly. From AUD$21 per person per night. That’s nuts.

Stay from 12-96 hours (essentially four days max) and choose from an extended range of ridiculously good four and five-star hotels with 24-hour check-in or out.

Perfect for those early or late connections and packing in an unforgettable cultural experience from your destination. Plus, you can stay up to four nights in both directions.

All you need to do is choose your Hotel and make sure you book the stopover when booking any multi-city flight with Qatar Airways, and you’re good to go. That’s it! There is no catch.

Now, with 92 hotels and four categories to choose from

With four product categories now, there’s a Qatar stopover hotel for everyone and every budget.

The Stopover Program has now been expanded to 92 hotels with an additional 5-star Premium Package with beach access category included, which provides selected properties in West Bay (CBD) with access to Doha Sands Beach.

FACT: Rates are up to 85 per cent cheaper than booking online or via a direct hotel rate.

1) Standard: Choose from 27 x 4-star hotels from $21 per night per person

Rates for 4-star hotels like Four Points by Sheraton, Ramada Encore, and Holiday Inn Doha Business Park begin at just AUD$21 per person per night. Mind-blowing.

Pro tip: One feature we love about the Stopover program is that rather than check out of your hotel in the morning on your last day, why not pay a bit extra for an extra night and get to enjoy your room and the hotel facilities right up to when you leave for the Airport. Very convenient if you are travelling with kids.

2) Premium: Choose from 22 x 5-star hotels from $36 per night per person

3) Premium with beach access: Choose from 13 x 5-star hotels from $47 per night per person
