RIDA International is proud to serve with quality and highest standard for 50 years. Back in 1966 we began our journey in Lebanon as a travel agency for inbound, outbound, ticketing and transportation. RIDA International became in 1979 an IATA agency and was only dealing with outbound tourism. In 1990, due to the stabilization of the situation in Lebanon, we reopened the inbound department. Managed by Mr.Rafic Rida, our CEO, Rida international succeeded to be recognized as the official agent for various regional and International events, taking place in the Middle East and worldwide.
RIDA International is a fast-growing company, backed by private equity investment. Every year, thousands of satisfied passengers use our services to give them the best holidays possible. RIDA International operates from 4 offices worldwide and employs more than 200 staff. Our headquarters are in Beirut(Lebanon). We have offices in Dubai(UAE), Amman(Jordan) and Jakarta(Indonesia) and cuurently opening an office in Cairo(Egypt).
We operate two distinct, yet complementary divisions:
• B2B Hotels – global provider of wholesale online accommodation, including rooms in more than 200,000 carefully picked hotels worldwide and market leading accomodations in Dubai.
• Group Tours – delivering market-leading tailored tours to groups visiting the Pearls of the Orient, offering bespoke itineraries and products – from city breaks to multi destination and special interest tours. Our clients range from small specialist tour operators to multi-national online retailers – and while they may differ in size and requirements, we provide the same outstanding customer service thanks to our expert, friendly, multilingual staff.
Our ambitious plans for the future include significant expansion both in European and International markets. In 2016, as celebrating 50 years of quality service, RIDA International launches a tailor designed booking engine to fully satisfy the clients' needs. We treat with respect all of our direct contractual relationships with more than 600 independent and chain hotel partners in Dubai, UAE. Greater scale is expected to accelerate growth and deliver increased efficiency to the benefit of both customers and suppliers. We're committed to nurturing and investing in our people and are always looking for new talent to join the team. We're also constantly seeking new travel industry suppliers to partner and grow with.
