A report released by PayFort has focused on the expansion of e-travel services in the Middle East and the whole industry in general. The report said that 80% of travel bookings on Tajawal are international flights, and the consumer usually books their ticket about 25 days before travelling. The report also revealed that Tajawal has provided tour bookings to more than 150 countries, showing that Middle Easterners love to travel and explore the world.

Tajawal is a global travel platform that serves all the needs of travellers in the region. The company has the most brilliant minds in the region and works to provide all the needs of passengers via a single platform.

In addition, Tajawal aims to make travelling easier, more enjoyable, and more available for as many people as possible. The company is constantly working to provide all travellers’ needs, such as booking hotels and flights.

Tajawal is by no means exclusive to the Middle East, but it has a special fondness for the local community in the region and understands their needs, from family-friendly destinations that offer halal cuisine, to private beaches and villas for privacy-conscious travellers. Tajawal aims to be more than just a flight and hotel comparison website. It wants to be the place you come to, when you’re looking for inspiration, tips and comfort that will help everyone travel at ease.
