Jeddah: Wego, the number 1 travel app and the largest online travel marketplace in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and the top travel app, has selected a list of visa-free destinations for Saudi travelers for the Eid al Adha holiday.

This year’s Eid al Adha is predicted to give Saudi residents a long weekend, a perfect occasion to travel. Anticipation is already building up, with an 84.73% increase in searches for international trips during Eid al Adha compared to the same travel period last month.

Wego expects to see booking numbers to further climb up as we get closer to Eid al Adha holiday. Wego’s data for Eid al Adha last year showed that on average, travelers collectively made their bookings more than a month ahead of their travel dates. However, about 25% of them opted to book closer to the travel dates—only up to 7 days ahead.

For Saudi travelers who have yet to decide on their Eid al Adha travel plans or simply want a hassle-free holiday, Wego presents a collection of both old favorites and fascinating destinations that can be visited without visa.
