booking agent in bkk?

Hello all
I'm looking for a reliable booking agent in BKK, preferably one who does discount business and/or first class tickets with either TG or other airlines. I'm flying OW BKK-HKG in early January, and am having trouble finding someone to reply to my emails for fare info, etc. I found decent prices on EK in business class (8200 Baht), but was also interested in TG, GF, AY, etc....
Thanks!

ThaiFly have some really nice fares to offer, I have never booked with them but I have heard that they are reliable.

Kyushuman,

If you find a Bangkok travel agent that replies to email I would appreciate you posting the name. 3 weeks ago I emailed Chawla Travel Agents and Olavi Travel Agents both based in Bangkok. Still no reply from either !!!

Gustaf,

I had a look at Thaifly site but was not able to get quote on line even though the facility to do so is there. I kept getting referred to "live agent" for details. Also I checked their hotel prices and found them to be 200/300 baht more expensive than booking directly with hotels.

Thanks anyway.

Cheers QFF

I looked at Thaifly seems a nice site except for the vast amount of words not spelled right for example Honalulu??? Snorkelling? Thaialnd?

Also noone responds to the 24/7 help
Guess I would steer away from anything like this

I have emailed to Mandala International Travel and Services Co Ltd and they have responded within 3 days. Their email address is [email protected], and website address is
www.mandalatravel.co.th.

I have yet to book with them yet.

The other travel agent is AsiaTravel and you can email them at [email protected] (http://www.asiatravel.com)

Good luck!

I use Amber Travel, a guy called Anant, he's very good, very reliable and can organise for tickets to be delivered to the airport or overseas by courier.

Email me if you want more info.

Sorry for bringing ThaiFly up from the begining. As I mentioned before I have never booked with them, just read about them somewhere.
