  • Avalibility during High- and Peak season!

    have you ever heard the question: Do I have to book in advance? Of course you have, and you've probably heard different answers on it. The avalibility depends mostly on three things:

  • What season are you going there (high, peak or low season)
  • Is this a high- or lowstandard hotel (low = below 3 stars)
  • Is this a popular and crowded area (e.g. phuket in high season)

  • A general fact is that it is much more likely that you'll find accommodation directly by searching in the area at low standard hotels. Then we are talking about very low standard, often called guesthouses and with a simple fan, only cold water and shared shower and toilets (if there is any shower). If you are looking for medium standard (3 stars) and above you should definitive book in advance. If you are visiting the area during peak season (e.g. phuket in dec-jan) you must book 1-2 months in advance. A summary to this question would be: If you want a "3 star" hotel (or above) you should book in advance during high season. If you need accommodation during peak season you must always book in advance, no matter what!

    Book online - save money!

    Book your hotel also during your trip!

    Around 30% of all our confirmed hotel bookings are made from people who actually travels around in Thailand. They are already in the area and knows that it will be much cheaper to walk into the internet café and make the reservation rather than walking up to the hotels front desk asking for avalible rooms. The reason for this is already explained in the item above.

    Buy a flight ticket instead of charter!

    15 years ago it was only business men and backpackers that travelled with a flight ticket and separate hotel bookings. The only alternative for families was "charter". Today, charter traffic have decreased rapidly and more and more people discovers the benefits of buying a single flight ticket. Especially to asia and Thailand this is absolutely the best way of doing it. Not so many wants to see the same view every morning when staying at the same hotel for two weeks. The advantages are many, be free and save money at the same time. From our experiences, the most common things to do is to not stay longer than 4 days at the same hotel. Then it's time to move on and see other things
