It has never been easier, thanks to the numerous online travel agents all vying for our business, to find cheap flights to those far flung, exotic locations that we have always dreamed of visiting but didn’t think we could afford them. One such destination which has seen an almost stratospheric boom in tourism is Thailand, and all it takes to find flights to Thailand is some time on the internet checking various sites for the best deals.
Thailand is one of those unique destinations that will satisfy even the most discerning of travellers. Bursting with culture, sights and sounds that are found nowhere else and a currency that make your pound stretch an awful long way are just a few of the wonders that attracts millions of visitors a year to this country south east Asia. Add glorious beaches, accommodation ranging from budget to sheer luxury and a vibrant nightlife and you have all the ingredients for a holiday of a lifetime.
The ever increasing influx of online travel agents have made Thailand accessible to all, and there are cheap flights to Thailand out there if you know where to look. Scouring websites tracking down the best fare may not sound a lot of fun, but it is the only way to find the best deals. Prices will vary vastly from site to site, and you will invariably find that it actually costs more to book directly with the airline than through an agent.
Another boon is that you can fly to Bangkok from many regional airports, eliminating the need to travel to London from Newcastle. Birmingham, Aberdeen etc and adding even more time, and money, to your travel. You may also find that it is cheaper to fly to Thailand from your local airport than from London, as these are all international airports and have different carriers using them.
The regional supplements you will find added when you are flying to hotspots on the continent don’t apply to long haul, and you can actually save thousands by flying from your local airport, so by not assuming you have to fly from London is the first step to finding flights within your budget. The sheer popularity of Thailand has encouraged more and more carriers to fly there, and for that we should all be grateful.
One part of Thailand that has also seen a huge increase in tourism is Phuket. You can fly here from the main London airports with one stop off or from regional airports with two stops. Fly from Newcastle, for example, and these will be Dubai and Bangkok. Cheap flights to Phuket can be found, it will just take a little time and research, and as is always the case when finding the cheapest flights, book as far in advance as possible.
Thailand isn’t merely a holiday destination; it is an experience, and one that everyone should take part in at least once. Now that the carriers and online travel agencies have made it so much easier for us to do so, many of our holiday dreams can now become a reality.
