Some potential customers ask, ‘Why do we need a travel agent when we can book everything ourselves?’. There are many benefits of using our services. Here are the Top Six that we believe are the most important.

Best Prices – We guarantee the best prices on all of our services. Yes, that means best prices compared to major online booking websites. We don’t charge any ‘booking’ or ‘agency fees’ and there are never any hidden costs. Ask us for a quote, compare and decide for yourself!

Save Time – If you are the kind of person who likes to research and plan everything yourself, that’s great. However, this can be very time-consuming. One email or phone call to us can answer all your questions!

Destiantion Knowledge – Based on your answers to a few questions, we can determine which destinations may please you the most. We deliver the most logical itinerary so you don’t waste time during your holiday. From our experience and your replies, we are certain which hotels, or even which room types in those hotels, are most suitable for you. We have the answers because we have been there and done that!

Flexibiliy – Unless it’s a last minute, we generally do not require any payment at the time of booking. This means that we can easily amend or cancel reservations, if needed, without penalties.

Additional Benefits – We have taken our time to build strong relationships with our partner suppliers (hotels, airlines, tour and transfer companies, etc) so we can often submit special requests for your holiday – cake at hotel on your birthday, request for room upgrade, special seat requests on flights and many more!

Real Back Up – We understand that emergencies come up and plans change. You will travel with a peace of mind knowing that you can contact us at any time and we will do our best to assist you. You will not wait on hold with a call center. All of our guests have the company owner’s personal mobile number.

How we guarantee best prices

As a travel agency we have taken time to build strong relationships with our partner suppliers ( hotels, airlines, transport and tour companies ) and negotiate special agency prices, which allow us to offer the best prices to you.

Expat Holidays Thailand is a small, family-run company. Our home-based offices help us reduce operating costs. We don’t print out fancy colorful brochures and we are striving to make our company completely paper-free. By focusing our marketing efforts exclusively through the Internet and word of mouth recommendations, we are able to avoid high marketing costs. All of these factors help us keep costs to a minimum, which allows us to pass on the savings to you!
