Government's "Let's Travel Together" Update
« on: October 08, 2020, 07:46:18 PM »
The Thai Government has elected to extend the "Let's Travel Together" promotion until 31 January 2021.  This provides the Thai people an opportunity to reserve rooms at member hotels and resorts at a 40% discount (government share.)  For each night spent in the reserved hotel/resort, the Thai member gets a 900 baht coupon (600 baht on weekends) to spend on food and entertainment venue if those venues have joined too.  Of course, the government share is 900/600 or 40% of the bill.  (You can use it at markets who have joined the Let's Travel Together too.

We have done it twice since my Thai wife is now a registered member, one night in Khao Yai and 2 nights in Pattaya, both at 5-star hotels, which included a free breakfast.  Maximum number of nights is currently 10 nights.  (They were classy hotels.)

Once your wife or Thai gf is registered with "Let's Travel Together", she can use the special Agoda site to make reservations.  Of course, you pay your portion through your Thai person's established "PAO TANG" wallet at the time of the reservation.  So, whatever the rate is on Agoda, you pay 60%.  (The person who is the registered person has to check-in at the hotel reserved.)

Oh yes, prior to this date, one had to use this promotion in provinces other than your own, but now one can make reservations throughout Thailand with hotels/resorts who have registered with the "Let's Travel Together."
