A popular Middle East tourist destination, Bahrain provides easy access to and from Saudi Arabia. The souqs (markets) are a must visit, as are Arabic forts and 15-mile causeway. SCUBA diving is also a popular leisure activity.

Airfare to Bahrain will be the cheapest on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursday. Mondays are popular with business travellers and weekends are key dates for holidaymakers wanting the longest trips possible – avoid these dates.

Also consider flights into Doha, Qatar. To get between the cities, you can grab a spot on a train, bus or flight. Look for cheap flights on no frills airlines. Air Arabia flies to Bahrain. Although it will take longer to reach your destination, a bus or train could save you enough cash to make it worth your while.

Another possible money-saving tip is to look for flights that go through Dubai, U.A.E., or another major gateway city instead of flying direct. Because there are more flights – and competition – from these cities on low budget airlines, you can save some cash over flying non-stop to your destination. It is very common to layover in one of these main cities.

Finally, consider traveling on a lesser-known carrier. Gulf Air is the national airline. However, Cathay Pacific, British Airways and other airlines also stop in Bahrain.

The most expensive air tickets to Bahrain are found during peak holiday travel times, such as the New Year. Also be aware of national events or festivals, which can also cause ticket prices to rise.

Summary of Money Saving Tips:

  • Fly mid-week
  • Book your holiday during the off-peak season
  • Consider flying into Doha, Qatar and traveling overland to Bahrain via train, ferry or bus
  • Look for flights that go through large cities, with many flights
  • Check out carriers besides the national airline – they may undercut the monopolistic competition
