Default Holidays from Doha

Hi all , so i want to book a holiday , not just a flight from Qatar , and i was wondering if anyone had any tips.

Basically i tried to do an internet search along the above lines, but it kept kicking me to websites about holidays to Doha. I have also seen a few mini shops that look like travel agents , but i want to make sure that i'm going to the right sort of ones i.e cheep like a budgie

Does any of you long-termers know any good firms, along the lines of Thomas Cook, or is it a case of just booking your flights and booking your hotels separately ?

Source your flights and hotels separately mate , why pay someone extra for the privilege ?

You can look at all the usual suspects like www.booking.com , www.expedia.com and www.agodoa.com and check them up on comparison prices through Trip Advisor . Also it's worth trying direct with the hotel as sometimes you'll get a few extras bunged in with booking direct .

You can try these but they'll be way over the top on price . Qatari's ususally use them as it suits their bone idle manner http://www.qatarairways.com/global/e...-holidays.page
Qatar Airways has a sale on as well so fill your boots !

cheers fella, as i was looking round for a company i was thinking it's a bit old fashioned to go to one firm, when for a little bit of leg work you can just go direct and get a better deal.

Now just got to decide, Thailand, Vietnam or Singapore ....bloody first world problem this one
