That free stopover is pretty attractive, you could add in a side trip before the main trip.
Is it me or the 30 day stopover is new?

If you book the stopover and Qatar does not open up to visitors by the time you fly, what happens to your ticket? You can only transit airside for <24 hours. While I hope that there is a significant easing in travel restrictions soon, there may be risk in booking a DOH stopover. Especially early in 2021.

On my tickets it used to be more-or-less free up to 4 days, then got more expensive for longer stops. Not break-the-bank expensive, but enough to notice.


QR keeps fares with DOH as origin or destination high, so I guess it wants to be careful it doesn't create a back door for trips to Qatar.

I mean if it allows 30 day stopovers you could use it as a MIL-DOH , spend time there and then do a weekend side trip or day trip to DEL. Of course that assumes a normal travel environment and god knows when we will have that again...

From there book with confidence rules, if I remember correctly, you would be entitled to a refund as they would not be able to provide you with the on ground service.

They have allowed it but not usually on the cheapest ticket types. For R fare bucket I remember them always having the no stopovers rules. Maybe when it comes to destination near or in the middle East those fare rules weren't there.

well, yes: there was conflicting pressure to allow stop-overs to allow the tourism incentive programme of subsidised hotel rates to work. But those stopover ops were kept short !

Can we assume that the flight really leaves from MXP = Milan Malpensa (international) airport?

I would refer you to the discussion on QR refunding in similar situations on the following thread.

You're right it is MXP, I took the code from Momondo when I put in Milan 😉

Given that MXP is the only one of the MIL airports enjoying QR service, it is safe to assume that this is what the OP meant.​​​​

I did read it. They play some game like almost all airline now but still they do refund you if there are involuntary limitations that are stated on their list. It can just be a bit of wait till they cancel the booking aka at the last minute. Of course there are other option as well if they want to keep the ticket opened for a later date.

Given that border openings and closures are being announced by governments worldwide with only days rather than months notice, it's not really unreasonable to expect airlines to be operating on similar timescales, as they have no control over or foresight of what governments may do.

This looks like a reasonable fare but of course it's buyer beware as any booking beyond the immediate term is currently a roulette game in terms of whether the dates you pick today will need to be revised before departure.
