Thanks

Why an agent ?, why not just book with the airline yourself ?

Best to book with the airline. Travel agents charge you commission on cc payments. Not sure when you want to fly. Many airlines presently offer good fares to Europe from BKK.

Do it yourself. Not that hard.

I usually do all my bookings myself so I know it's not hard, haven't used a travel agent for at least 20 years, but sometimes those little, obscure agents seem to be able to get good fares that can't be found on the internet.

Cassnu, agreed. I often got special offers by walking into the airline office. Those fares were not published online.

Obscure little agents often sell obscure consolidator tix.

Sadly NomadicFever, I need to book these flights before we get to Bangkok in June so need to contact someone prior to then - I'll keep searching.

Cassnu, sometime ago bill2p mentioned Overland travel at Asok. Not sure about their website, if any.

I tried them but returnrd to the airline as the price quoted was higher then EY office.

Why cant you book this flight online? Just key in Thailand as location and you get local price in BHT. You could see what skyscanner comes up with re price range for the period you want to travel. For my destination Thailand is no longer a cheap place for tix. Im not familiar with rates in Australia.

Hi Cassnu,

I have used New Line travel on Sukhumvit in the past.

Might have better luck on ThaiVisa for flights from BKK to UK with ex-pats returning home. I've seen quite a number of posts thee looking for best prices ex BKK.
