The hotels and air companies of Thailand reduce the price
For the purpose of attracting the tourists, Thailand uses the proved method – discounts and special offers. The tourists are not in a hurry to travel to Thailand now, being concerned about the aftereffects of the flood. As a result the hotels’ occupancy has decreased by 40% in November. This situation made Association of the Hotels of the country and Thailand Tourism Authority introduce the program “buy one product and receive the second free of charge”.
The action will be started on the 15th of December and will last till the end of the month. It’s planning that more than 100 hotels of 3* and 4* category will take part in this promo action. A considerable decrease of the price will affect the domestic flights as well. The tickets with the discounts will be sold till December 11 for the period from December 5, 2011 to March 31, 2012. It was planned that Thailand would receive 19.5 million tourists this year, but due to the flood the estimates didn’t prove to be correct.
