There is an excellent travel agent about 100 mtrs down from Burger King in the street where the police station is. Have used them personally for both overseas and internal Thai flights,and find them extremely competitive,and helpful.They can actually be cheaper than going online as offers are available to them when cash payments are involved.

The travel agent down from Burger King (not gonna mention names) swiped my card twice & refused to repay me for the extra amount...pure theft!
It was the good-old H.H. tourist police that got my money back from them... :cheers: :cheers:

I am looking for one here in Hua Hin for booking flight to the U.S that I can pay with debit card or cash and can trust to get a good price and service. I have run into a number of problems booking online:
Spent seven hours yesterday booking with an airline site because Visa blocked online transactions from Thailand. I'm not sure if that was temporary or a new policy.
If I book a ticket for someone else, often the airline will have to see the credit card that made the purchase.

I use the one near B King, no problem. If I try to use my debit card they say tey will charge me an extra5%, so I go outside, draw cash from an ATM and pay. I was stuck one time in US a flight cancelled and the flight offered to me would have meant I was too late for my flight LAX to Tokyo, I phoned the travel agent and they sorted it out for me.

western tours, next to burger king, 100m past the hua hin police station on opposite side, the road that leads to the beach.
I have used them twice now for domestic and international flights, I checked the best price online and both times it was cheaper to pay cash through them, plus no international credit card charges either.

Anyone know if it is possible to book online without a physical credit card? Have heard that airlines now want to see an actual card upon check in.

If this is the case I'll have to use a travel agent.

I asked that very same question when I booked my son's flights to the UK. The answer was that if you book direct with the airline, then they are entitled to ask to see the Credit Card at check in. However, if you book via an agent (I used West East Travel in London) then the risk lies with them, and the airline have no right to ask for the Credit Card.
