Do you want to book a package or a DIY trip?

Kuoni do packages to Malaysia.

Netflights.com do flights and hotels as a package.

We book out own international flights with netflights.com, internal flights with local airlines, hotels with either the hotel directly or hotel reservation sites, sort out trips etc ourselves.

Guess it depends on what sort of holiday you want.

Happy hunting.

I like Lee's Travel...they specialise in East Asia - inc M'sia, S'pore and Thailand.

Having said that...I have been buying direct from the airlines for recent flights.

Are you confident of booking your own flights, accommodation, insurance etc as this will give you a far greater choice of what you want to do/get from your holiday.

I have not used a Travel Agent for many many years as I prefer to DIY and get better flexibility.

Have a look at airlines own websites as well as comparison sites and the usual Expedia, and so on. Get a feel for costings first and maybe have a look at what a TA can offer.

Did see some fantastic deals in the Sunday papers for holidays to Asia and was quite surprised at the prices, have a look at Trailfinders they did appear to have quite a bit on offer.

Lots of choices out there...the usual suspects - Expedia, Last Minute etc etc. As I said, I like Lees Travel for Asia:
