And with all roads (and flights) leading to the Gulf our Black Friday today comes as BlaQatar Friday with the world’s best airline.
Whatever has been said about Qatar the world is in love with their airline carrier with Skytrax naming QA the world’s best.
All of which has been good news for the army of fans who have been flying out to Qatar.
Not diverted by the fact that my own wee Scotland aren’t at the World Cup, we’re still promoting flights from here to Qatar.
With my local station, Edinburgh Airport flagging up their 12% off offers, all to be booked before November 30.
So if you think your country will be in the final on December 18 you can fly out the day before and return the next day from £2176.65.
And if you look around you can bring your accommodation prices down.
We found the Tourist Hotel in Corniche, Doha on ebooking for two nights for under £400 ((£398).
If you’re not interested in the football (we accept all visitors here) then Jet2holidays are tempting us with their goodies.
With 5% to 50% off on selected hotels for a limited time.
Leaving on a Jet plane
Now Jet2 might not be a high-end airways but they make no claims to be.
And they flew me seamlessly on my winter holiday this year to Val D’Isere in the French Alps.
They’re offering a range of winter holidays, last-minute getaways and summer holidays.
And the MET34 Athens where we’re told there’s 40% off the accommodation part of the holiday.
Situated in the Syntagma Square, you’re only 500m from the Metro Square.
And just as importantly just a kilometre from the Acropolis.
And I know from my Greek odyssey that there are no more accommodating taxi drivers than the Athenians.
With the drivers (or maybe just the ones I had) giving me the option to pay whatever fare I thought the journey deserved.
Book by 23.59 on 29 November for travel dates up to 30 June.
And so you’ll get, say three nights for you and yours, for £1,178 in February.
Black is back
There is no shortage of Black Friday deals out there so keep your eyes peeled and we will too.
So whether it’s BlaQatar Friday with the world’s best airline to see your team lift the cup.
Or you jet out with Jet2 on a cutprice deal for a budget break.
