Why use a travel agent and not book online ?

  • We have the same price or a cheaper price than online booking engines, because we have direct contracts with hotels etc. We always compare our prices to online services to ensure we are competitive.
  • When you use an online service you dont connect with a person, you cannot ask questions and get ideas, input, suggestions or answers based on experience and actual facts.
  • The online world of travel is a jungle, how can you be sure you pick the right hotel, the right transport, the right trekking tour etc. You dont have any reference or idea if they are legit, have all their licences, if they will show up as promised, if the guides are certified, well trained and responsible, if the hotel is worn down, if there is a nightclub next to your room, if the pool is dirty, the beach next to a drain pipe or if the hotels is full of drunk spring breakers.
  • When you book online you rely solely on the description and pictures, which can be very outdated, old and not representing the current state.
  • When you book a plane ticket, a hotel or a tour online and a problem occur, this could be an overbooked plane, an overbooked hotel or a lost confirmation, a tour that is not running or of low standard, a guide that is useless, a transport that did not show up etc, you have no where to turn for help, you are on your own and just wasting your precious holiday time and money on a problem that could have been avoided.
  • Using a travel agent gives you security, if something goes wrong you have someone to turn to, someone who will help you and stand up for you, you have someone to contact.
  • When you use a travel agent, your tour and itinerary is based on experience and quality, its based on firsthand knowledge, customer feedback and inspections of hotels etc.
  • When we put together a holiday for you, when we recommend something to you, its because we know the tour, the guide, the driver, the company, the hotel from our own experience and from our customers, so that we are sure you will give you the best service and experience possible.
  • When we put together a tour for you, you can be sure we do it based on your preferences, meaning we select the best solution for you based on your dreams, needs, interests, wishes and budget, which mean you dont have to worry about did you pick the right hotel, the best tour etc
  • When you use a travel agent, everything is booked, confirmed and payed for before hand, which mean you dont have to worry or waste valuable holiday time on solving problems or finding out how to get from point a to b, how to get to your hotel, will the taxi driver rip you off etc.
  • We as a travel agent, only have one goal, quality over quantity, to make every customer happy, to give every customer the best possible holiday experience, because our passion for travel and our professional pride demands it and because happy customers come back. Online services have only one goal as well, to make as much money as possible with as little interaction as possible with the customers.

Insight To Asia Tours
Commitment To Responsible Travel

Travel is one of the most rewarding sectors of business and activity. Our services and tours are designed to bring happiness, unique experiences and knowledge about other cultures to thousands of travelers. Our core business is fulfilling travel dreams, but our ethics ensure that this cannot be done in any way at the expense of the destinations biodiversity, its wildlife, people or their cultural heritage.

We believe that the privilege of living and operating within a marvelous natural and cultural heritage, comes with a responsibility to preserve it for generations to come and ensure that our business is significantly beneficial for the destinations and the communities living there.

It is the responsibility of everyone to be conscientious about where they tread and what impact this has on the world around them. Acknowledging the power of tourism to change and improve lives, as well as the negative impacts it may generate, we place a strong emphasis on responsible tourism. Our responsible travel commitment is to minimize negative impacts while increasing the positive ones, always bearing in mind how our activities affect the places we are visiting.

Essentially, our idea of responsible tourism transcends conventional perceptions of travel, instead immersing clients in authentic experiences that mutually benefit locals and visitors. We believe in caring and being willing to give back to the communities and keep increasing our commitment.

Our decision is initiated by a genuine ethical attitude with respect as a basic principle, respect towards our hosts, nature and Asia’s fantastic cultural heritage we marvel at every day, it also makes perfect business sense; these are our main assets and it is not only our duty but our interest to nurture them. We truly believe responsible tourism is the future of travel, bringing people closer together and developing a style of travel that is conducive to making the world a better place.

As a travel company catering to travelers and tourism, we have the power to influence the choice of consumers, practices of suppliers and the development of destinations. This Unique position enables us to contribute to sustainable development and the protection of the environmental and cultural resources of our destinations. We are fully aware that our responsible approach is an ongoing process that requires continuous commitment from our teams, as well as from our business partners.

As Such we wish to actively encourage you, our clients and suppliers to help us achieving the best through you own contributions and commitment to protecting the environment, wildlife, culture and customs when you travel, to respect the places you visit and leave nothing behind, except your footprint and leave with nothing else than pictures and marvelous holiday memories.

Our wildlife commitment

We do not want to contribute to the extinction of the wonderful ecosystems / animals, whether implicitly or explicitly, we are also not willing to work with sites & activities where animals are not being treated appropriately. As such, we follow the global standards for animals in tourism, developed with input and support of environmental NGOs such as TRAFFIC, WCS, WWF, Elephant Asia, and other specialists to inform our travelers about the issues at stake.

The Global Standards for Animals in Tourism

These standards involve the five freedoms and provide guidance to ensure that animals in tourism are treated with respect. We have committed to gradually assess all of its suppliers and to work only with tour suppliers & excursion providers ensuring these five freedoms.

• Freedom from hunger and thirst
• Freedom from discomfort
• Freedom from pain, injury or disease
• Freedom to express normal behaviour
• Freedom from fear and distress
