Got good advice on this forum before, my partner and I are planning a 2 week trip to Thailand in July 2013.
After doing much research I have found booking independent travel would save a considerable amount of money, but am looking for other's experiences of booking a holiday to Thailand independently from the UK? We normally always book through an agent for a long haul holiday.
We plan to book through reputable companies such as Emirates and AirAsia, and book hotels through booking.com as have used them previously for european city breaks, they also do not charge for rooms upfront and with good cancellation policies which makes me feel more secure (e.g. I haven't paid money up front to loose should anything go wrong!)
Booking through an agent is more expensive and so far the hotels offered haven't been as good as what I can find online for a similar price, however we are aware there is a little more security when booking through an agent.
Any advice appreciated.
