3-Pay for Air Tickets Saudi Airlines has published on its website that they accept PayPal as an alternative method of payment. However, if you proceed with ticket booking on their website, you won’t find this option. What does an alternative payment method mean in this context? I have no idea.
Perhaps, a better idea is to call their helpline and ask about it further. I would appreciate if somebody who has ever made a payment to Saudi Airlines using his PayPal balance could share his experience below.
There are many international airlines which accept PayPal as a method of payment. There are 6 Middle East Airlines which accept PayPal with some restrictions.
4-Pay for the Hotel Booking: Yes, you can pay for the hotel booking using your PayPal balance in Saudi Arabia. Agoda has so many options to book a hotel and provides you the option to pay through PayPal.
Expedia doesn’t have as many hotels in its portfolio as booking.com but still, it is a good option to consume your PayPal balance.
At the end of the booking, it gives you an option to either pay in advance using any of the accepted payment options which include PayPal or pay at the hotel. Payment in Advance is slightly cheaper than the second option.
If you still want to go for booking.com, we have shared a trick to save SR 55 or $15 on your next Hotel booking.
