Passengers who fly with Qatar Airways have a new perk to look forward to. The airline has announced that it now offers a one-night free stopover hotel stay in Doha. Of course, passengers won't just be staying at any hotel. They can look forward to staying at luxurious four-star and five-star hotels. Participating hotels include The Four Seasons, Marriott Marquis, Radisson Blu and Oryx Rotana. Travelers can choose to extend their stays beyond the first free night for a charge of just $50.

Qatar Airways is working in partnership with the Qatar Tourism Authority to give travelers a taste of Qatar through this campaign called +Qatar. This is because many vacationers simply travel through the country during stopovers without ever leaving the airport. This summertime offer is designed to introduce travelers to the jewels of Qatar and develop the destination's tourism industry. Visitors can take part in a myriad of activities such as dinner cruises, city tours and desert safari adventures when they have a room to call their own in Doha.

The summer of 2017 is a time to get a taste of the Middle East for free if you're a Qatar Airways customer. Guests can book this offer between May 1 and August 31 of 2017 for travel dates between May 7 and September 30 of 2017. Plus, they're throwing in free transit visas for transiting traveler who are in transit ranging from 5-96 hours, too!

Customers should book their trips by purchasing a multi-city ticket on the Qatar Airlines website. Guests are able to select the hotels they want to stay at once they receive their flight confirmations.
