Jump to last reply

Okay little quandry have booked accomadation +flight with travel agent thru octopus yesterday for Bangkok and staying at Mandarin Hotel Was prepared to pay $20 extra than quoted at most other sites ( total $420 for 12 days) for accomadation thru agent as all was done at once ( need to pay for it all by tomorrow 22/1/06) arrived home to have response on email from Supin agent for www.bangkok.thaihoteldiscount.com/ They have quoted $359 and that includes their 3% which is now quite a considerable saving. I have to pay all this up front ( no problem ) however I dont want to arrive in Bangkok and find that I have no room and I have been ripped off
So anyone ! would you just pay the fare thru the travel agent and not worry about the $60 well actually its $80 if I include the other $20
or has anyone used the above brokers and all has been well or has someone used them and been ripped off to find themselves without a room
Phew all this for $60 sometimes I really got to take check of myself
Anyway hope someone can help
