Gulf Air Transit Hotel Procedures in Bahrain
The procedures for transit hotel bookings have changed for Gulf Air from the time when anybody with eight hours of transit at the Bahrain airport could stop by the customer service center and get a voucher for hotel, transportation and meals.
Gulf still provides the service for customers who have layovers of eight hours or more, and this free service is provided in one direction only. The request for the room must be done at least seven days prior to the departure date. The airline will provide a confirmation voucher. From our experience, all requests have been confirmed even though Gulf does not guarantee the service, as it is subject to availability.
The room service is provided only in Bahrain, and not in other London, Paris, or Frankfurt, the European gateways that Gulf flies.
