Inter-country trips to and from the Saudi cities of Dammam and Al-Ahsa to Qatar will allow residents of the Kingdom to book a trip to Doha a day in advance, for a car that can accommodate up to three passengers . The car will cost around $266 (1,000 SAR) one way.

Careem cars at Doha International Airport and Hamad International Airport offer direct access to all eight World Cup stadiums and have dedicated Careem pick-up lanes.

City-to-city rides have been made available for those attending multiple games.

Ghaith Al-Johani, Managing Director of Careem Saudi Arabia, said: “We are delighted to introduce inter-country routes to allow Saudi football fans to drive to FIFA World Cup matches, Qatar 2022. This will increase the supply of transportation options for visitors while creating even more flexible revenue opportunities for captains.

Qatar, the smallest country to host the world’s flagship tournament, is preparing to receive around 1.2 million visitors at the World Cup, which kicks off on November 20.

Thousands of fans are expected to stay in neighboring countries like the UAE and travel to Doha for matches due to limited accommodation in Qatar.
