Rahlat.com, the Arabic travel search website done by Arabs for Arabs, aims to help Middle East and Gulf travellers save time and money. The free, independent travel metasearch engine, which supports Arabic and English, discovers the best flight and hotel prices with the click of a mouse, displaying results in a range of currencies.

The Arabic search engine can compare prices from hundreds of travel and airline websites, and almost 1 million hotels located across the globe, and currently attracts more than 100,000 visitors from various countries in the Middle East and Gulf regions, including the UAE, KSA, Jordan and Kuwait.

Company CEO Elie Messo said, "We saw that travellers in the Middle East still bought their tickets from small offline agencies around the corner. Prices they paid were mostly 50% higher compared to what is paid online via travel search engines in Europe. We decided to solve this problem in the Middle East by launching Rahlat.com in Arabic with the vision of providing the same low prices as elsewhere in the world.
