Careem has introduced inter-country rides between Saudi Arabia and Qatar to enable Saudi fans to travel to FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 matches by car.

Customers can book a ride from Dammam and Al-Ahsa, cities located in the east of Saudi Arabia, to Doha one day in advance, for a car that can accommodate up to three passengers.

In the wake of the World Cup, Careem has expanded its fleet size in Qatar by 1,000 additional cars. The company is expected to increase the total number of its vehicles in Qatar by more than 50 per cent in time for the World Cup, while fleets in neighbouring cities have been growing in tandem as well.

City-to-city rides are available to those attending multiple matches. Customers in Qatar can avail packages that allow them to book multiple rides at a discounted price.

This will increase the supply of transport options for visitors while also creating even more flexible earning opportunities for Captains,

said Ghaith Al-Johani, general manager for Careem Saudi Arabia.

Careem has also tied up with local and international partners to accommodate the large influx of tourists. Partnerships with Grab, Alipay, and Kakao will enable customers to book Careem rides on their apps through a direct integration with Careem’s app.

Careem launched its service in Saudi Arabia in 2013, commencing operations in Riyadh, Jeddah, Dammam, Dhahran, and Khobar, before expanding to reach 29 cities across the kingdom, the statement added.
