Expedia Hong Kong 's main business is to provide hotel reservation service, while also providing purchase tickets, travel packages and car rental services. Expedia is the only one with budget airline AirAsia (Air Asia) to establish business partnerships online travel agency, so the Expedia Hong Kong website you can buy Air Asia tickets, but also sales of "Air Asia Air + Hotels "travel package.
In the Expedia site to buy Air Asia ticket prices with Air Asia website prices are identical, and the price of travel packages to open the score buy tickets and hotel discounts to some extent.
The following are respectively Expedia web site (on the map) and Air Asia website (following figure) with an Air Asia ticket purchase price, there is no difference between the two prices.
In the Expedia site to buy "Air Asia Flight + Hotel" travel package discount rate depending on the price of the hotel, depending on the discount rate different from different hotels from 2-3% to 20-30% range, but a small part of the hotel may not have any discounts.
Below are the Expedia buy 2 persons Bangkok Courtyard by Marriott Bangko 5 Days 4 Nights Package price if booked separately at Expedia Courtyard by Marriott Bangko the Deluxe Room, four nights price is HK $ 4, 515.27, plus two round-trip airfare After the total price is HK $ 7, 220.83, while buying travel packages can be HK $ 1, 780.63 discount, the total price after discount is HK $ 5, 440.20, the discount rate close to 25%.
However, using HotelsCombined website after comparing the original Courtyard by Marriott Bangko a Deluxe Room at HotelClub Reservation price four nights just HK $ 3, 492 (inclusive of tax and service charges), although this hotel can not use 10% of HotelClub discount code , but the price better than Expedia's HK $ 4, 515 cheaper a big cut.
While HotelClub provides Courtyard by Marriott Bangko price than Expedia low, but buy a travel package price HK $ 5, 440.20, is still higher than separate purchase Air Asia tickets (HK $ 2, 705.5) and at HotelClub booking price (HK $ 3, 492) combined HK $ 6, 197.5 over 12% cheaper.
Of course, because when you purchase the package discount rate each hotel is different but most of the hotel can use the Ministry of HotelClub discount code for 10% or 10% of Hotels.com discount code , so the purchase is not necessarily cheaper travel packages, and Other airlines for flights from launch more and more, so the Air Asia tickets may not be the cheapest.
Although there are other online travel agencies selling "Air + Hotel" tourism package, but Expedia has the same rather special services, is to buy "Air + Hotel" travel package, guests can choose to purchase only certain days of the journey to the hotel . For example, if your ticket departure date is October 1, on the return date is October 8, if the other online travel agents travel package, you can only buy tickets plus 7 nights hotel package, and must be the same hotels. However, Expedia travelers can purchase only one night, two nights ......, seven-night hotel.

Chiang Mai/Samui/Phuket/Pattaya, Moving to & fro2003-10-12 20:00:13 by cl
Taking my second trip to Thailand for 3 weeks during November. Was in BKK and Phuket last time.
This time, arriving in BKK for a couple of days, then I want to go to Chiang Mai, hike in the mountains and take cooking classes, go to Samui, Phuket again, and Pattaya.
I've realized that there are ways to get to these places directly without necessary going through BKK airport each time....y, but at the same time, I want to leave when I'm ready to leave.
I figure I can just keep the number to Thai Air handy (as I did last time I traveled Thailand), go to any local travel agent there, simply book online while there, or, just go straight to the airport.
Does anyone have experience with this? November is the start of the high season, but not sure how busy it'll really be.
I enjoyed Laos alot2005-03-04 10:48:03 by wat2dowat2do
I went in 2001. Bought a "package" from a Bangkok travel agent that included visa for crossing Thai Laos border up at Chang Rai, a boat trip down the Mekong for a few days, overnight accomodation at a french owned riverbank hotel, meals and dropped us off at Luang Prabang. The travel agent also included air tickets from Luang Prabang back to BKK. Not really an organised package tour, so to speak... wonderful experience, but I would warn against hiking or travelling in the back country or in a small group. Read warnings about land crossings. Stick with an organised tour in a mainstream area.
If you're in the region anyways, tack on a few days in Siam Reap in Cambodia. You can fly in and out of BKK. It was as memorable as Laos for different reasons. (architechure vs the people)
