Countries in Southeast Asia are planning to reopen their borders to international tourists, including Thailand, which has already started with its Sandbox program as part of the country's re-opening. To contribute to the recovery of the tourism industry, Traveloka, Southeast Asia's travel & lifestyle superapp with over 60 million downloads, introduced "Welcome to Thailand Again," a promotional campaign offering special deals for inbound tourists and fully vaccinated travellers to explore Thailand with discounts of up to 10%, while at the same time encouraging safe travel.
Panicha Thananaken, Country Manager of Traveloka Thailand, said, "Through our ongoing efforts, Traveloka has demonstrated its commitment to encourage safe travel and enhance the tourism industry in Thailand. With the rigorous plan to boost the vaccination rate, we are optimistic that this effort will positively contribute to the economic recovery and growth, including in the tourism sector. With 34.7 percent (as of 15 October 2021) of the population now fully vaccinated, we are aiming to bring in international visitors to safely explore the country with Traveloka. We believe that this program will receive an overwhelming response in the market and effectively contribute to the tourism sector."
Prioritizing safety during this tough period, Traveloka is committed to encouraging strict adherence to health protocols outlined by the government. "Fully aware that we still need to remain alert with the ongoing pandemic, we armed our in-app feature with a Safe Travel Page that provides real-time COVID-19 information updates on travel regulations, document requirements, and safe traveling tips for customer reference. In addition, we have also been proactively encouraging people to implement strict health protocols through our own channels, such as Traveloka's platform as well as our social media," added Panicha.
To fulfil the travel and lifestyle aspirations of its customers, Traveloka also provided an inspirational content section whereby customers can be inspired on what to do and where to visit in Thailand. And to facilitate the booking experience for customers, Traveloka offers end-to-end solutions to support all inbound travelers' needs, including flights, accommodations, and experiences/attractions, through to COVID-19 testing with special prices and coupons:
- Discount for international inbound flights: 10% or up to 50 euros
- Discount for domestic flights in Thailand: up to THB 200
- Accommodation coupon: up to THB 250
- Xperience coupon: up to THB 200
The Welcome to Thailand Again program includes popular tourist areas being promoted by the Tourism Authority of Thailand, such as Phuket, Krabi, Samui, Bangkok and Chiang Mai. International visitors who miss visiting 'Amazing Thailand' can enjoy these perks starting from today until December 2021 via the Traveloka app.
