Qatar have launched a flash sale which as usual has little of interest from the UK. The sale is valid for travel between 8 October 2020 and 30 September 2021. Obviously, you need to be cautious booking given the unstable situation with travel. However, Qatar do have a Travel with Confidence policy which was updated recently. This gives good coverage for most issues you may face with borders etc. You can read about that here. 

Privilege Club members will also earn double Qmiles during the offer period for travel by 30 September 2021.  Not a member yet? You can join now and earn 2000 Qmiles instantly.

Current Qatar QSuite

South Africa is open to tourists but not from the UK yet. However with Qatar’s Travel with Confidence then you should be able to move dates or claim a voucher if that is still the case next year. South Africa’s policy is being reviewed every two months. 

The other thing worth noting about Qatar is their onboard service is pretty much normal apart from coming on one tray. You have to wear a mask and face shield for getting on and off, take-off/landing but if you are in business class you don’t need to wear a mask or a face shield during the main part of the flight.

  1. Thanks Michelle, where though is the “South Africa from £1150” fare?

  2. Hi Michele

    Presumably if you had to change at some point, you would pay the change fee plus any fare difference at that time? So you would lose these discounted promo prices / have to pay the normal price at that time if you had to do that?


    • It depends if the original fare bucket is available. I moved dates and did not pay anything on a sale fare. Pick your time carefully to change dates!

  3. Boo, JNB/CPT rockets up – I guess this is lions tour related revenue management, but I was hoping to get out there the week after. Anyone’s crystal ball think the fares could drop for 2nd/3rd week August or should I resign myself to going in Y? 🙁

Have your say
