    Best HK Travel Agents?

    I am planning to visit HK this summer and make that my home base for traveling in Asia. What are the best travel agencies for cheap air tickets? Being that I am not in the area now, ones with websites are most appreciated. Thanks

    I guess China travels have a lot of cheap tickets. Not sure of the website, but they are bang opposite to Chung King mansion in Mody Road...New papers also publish a lot of air tickets...

    I use farrington amex http://www.amextravel.com.hk/ which i doubt are that cheap but I've always found them to be good.

    Aside from that try the following (all taken from previous geoexpat threads)

    The discounts will vary by travel agent, depending on the destination. Lots of specialist agents who work with a particular destination and have access to pretty decent fares which other agents don't have.

    It is my opinion that travelling from Hong Kong is quite expensive compared to other places. You could think about flying from Shenzhen to other China cities which lowers the price (China Travel Services) www.chinatravel1.com or you could try www.cheapflights.com.hk

    Rhonda,

    The US market is fairly competitive where you're not going to get a significant discount by going to a consolidator. The specialist agents deal with specialist countries which are only served by a limited number of airlines and flights per day.

    For example....

    India: You'd go to Nanda Travels and a couple of others for cheap tickets given that they block inventory of CX and Air India.

    For domestic USA travel, try expedia.com, travelocity.com, hotwire.com or priceline.com
