I'm planning to take my family (wife and two young boys ages 5 and 6) to Thailand over the 2010 Christmas holiday. After tons of research, I've got an itinerary and hotel choices. This will be our first trip to Thailand.
Since we will be travelling for 24 days with internal airfares, transfers, etc., I'm really not sure the best (and most economical) way to book the trip and how to get the best rates within reason.
We want to pre-book the trip and a few tours. Do most people book their trips themselves or use an agent? If you use an agent or operator, can you recommend someone? Not sure if that's even allowed on TA, but I'm sure you'll let me know if my question is not appropriate.
Thanks for your consideration.
