I think it is premature to write a review on asiatravel.com but who cares..If the service is not as what is expected I will delete this posting and change it to negative one. So, I will call this posting as booking review.

I have booked a room at Nile Hilton Cairo from Asiatravel.com for 6 nights. If I book directly from the hotel, the rate is USD162.00 per night with breakfast but through Asiatravel.com, the rate given is marvelously low at USD82.00 per night inclusive breakfast. At first, I’m a bit sceptical but after searching some information on their credibility, I decided to give a try. Their service is quite fast as they confirmed my booking within an hour and booking voucher to be presented at check-in counter is issued within 6 hours by asiatravel.com.  Good service!

For your information, I paid the booking using debit card Visa Electron. I need to tell this as some online merchants do not accept debit card. Airport transfer is charged at USD27.00 per way.I requested a Nile view room and was informed that I need to pay additional USD15.00 per night. I would not take it as USD15.00 can buy me a lot of things in Cairo. Without Nile view is not going to hurt me..

As I said in the earlier posting, Nile Hilton is chosen because of it’s location. I have stayed at Conrad Cairo before. I would love to stay there again but I have to look for another hotel this time around because of it’s location is a bit far from the downtown and the rate is not budget friendly.

Asiatravel.com has impressed me so far for the first part. Second part of the review will be given when I am back from the trip.

    Pierre – You are right! They are very reliable. Recently I have booked a room at Regent Palace Dubai and managed to save 40%.

    I have used their service and would admit that I was at first a bit skeptical as the advertised rates were about 60% of the online booking rate of the hotel that I wanted to book in Khasab, Musandam, Oman. Howvere I was pleasntly suprised as I had a good experience and also saved lot of money. Would recommend asistravel.com to everyone.

    Cheers

    Hi guys,

    I just tried booking from asiatravel.com.
    It seems like certain in different place in Malaysia (as of my current booking and destination). For example hotel in KL, I have not much comment on the booking technique. But for Genting, at first world, the booking is like only submitting info with all credit card details, etc. Not sure if is secured?

    here’s the link to the booing site:
    https://form.asiatravel.com/secureforms/singapore/malaysia/genting/promo1_resv.html

    Look at the bottom where it even asked the bank name and country of issue, any comments?

    I have sent those detail info, now puzzled and doubts.

    Hope someone could enlightens.

    Hi JH,

    Don’t worry about booking with Asiatravel. I have used their service many times and very happy to recommend to others. They will not charge your card unless room is available. Email will be sent for booking confirmation.

    I have found Private Tours in Turkey and well all ? can say is thank you to all the team. Our stay without any trouble, nothing to stress about as everything was organized by the team. I went with my huge family to Turkey and we wanted to enjoy and have a perfect stay. We made our reservations about 3 months before our departure, so we would be sure everything would be prepared ahead of time http://www.privatetoursinistanbul.com We did not know what we wanted to do and visit, and they helped us to put an itinerary for our 4 days in Istanbul (8 days total in Turkey). They are a unique tour company offering fun and affordable tours of the major attractions along the Turkey. Their tour guides share the incredible gems the city has to offer. They know their history and share unusual facts and interesting information about cities. Travelers who are looking for more than a boring history lesson will enjoy the guides’ sense of humor and passion. During the tours instructors and guides provided one-on-one interest to every participant. They also made some recommendations on good, affordable restaurants and places to stay also. We probably would not have found by ourselves, or maybe with days and days of research. From several hours to several days, you can try to make both private and group tours in Turkey with this company. Try this fun and exciting way to discover new places. They have provided us the most valuable, interesting and appealing attractions of Turkey, we definitely had a good time which we relish to re-experience through their best services.
