This month two Saudi Arabian agents gave ATNâ€™s mystery shopper some good advice about booking a holiday to Spain.
ATN: Where can you recommend in Spain?
Caravan Travel, Al-Khobar: We have a seven-night package to Malaga.
It will cost SAR 6700 (US $1733), including flights, four-star accommodation, breakfast and transfers.
This is with Qatar Airways, or KLM possibly.
There is a KLM flight on that day flying from Dammam via Amsterdam to Malaga.ATN: Whatâ€™s in Malaga?
There are beaches and mountains.
We can also arrange day tours and it might be possible to add other cities; Madrid, Cordoba, or Barcelona for example. ATN: How can I get to get to Madrid?
Dammam Travel Agency: You can fly Qatar airways direct, or there is an early morning flight with KLM that costs SAR 3500 ($933). ATN: Can you recommend a good hotel?
I can have a look.
If you know the name of a hotel, I can give you a rate.
It is little bit expensive in Europe for hotels you know?
I will need to get back to you.
