Some potential clients ask, ‘Why do we need a travel specialist when we can book everything ourselves?’. There are many benefits of using our services. Here are the Top Five that we believe are the most important.
Destination Knowledge – We are based in Bangkok, which allows us to constantly explore destinations, experiences and accommodations that we offer to our clients. Based on your answers to a few questions, we can determine which destinations and experiences you’d enjoy the most.
Friendly And Personalized Service. No call centers or automated replies. All enquires are answered directly by the company owner.
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. You will not wait on hold with a call center. All of our guests have the company owner’s personal mobile number.
Save Time – If you are the kind of person who likes to research and book everything yourself, that’s great. However, planning a trip piece by piece can be time consuming and confusing. You often end up traveling with 10 different contacts, vouchers etc. We specialize in designing seamless, highly personalized itineraries. You travel with everything booked in one place and with one contact number, so you can relax, unwind and enjoy your trip to the fullest.
Special Benefits – We have taken our time to build strong relationships with our partner suppliers (hotels, airlines, tour and transfer companies, etc) who provide us with special benefits – romantic room set up for honeymoon, a bottle of bubbly while sailing the Andaman Sea, cake on your birthday, room upgrades – no request is too much!
As a travel company we have taken time to build strong relationships with our partner suppliers ( hotels, airlines, transport and tour companies ) and negotiate special contracted rates, which allow us to offer the best prices to you.
Expat Holidays Thailand is a small, family-run company. Our home-based offices in the US and Thailand 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!
