avoiding change fees.....

Soooo I know I will get hit with a $230 change fee but I need your guys advice. My original trip was supposed to be 10 nights, starting in bkk then finishing in pattaya. My boss has given me some extra time off and I'm considering extending my stay in pattaya by two nights. I'm a rookie and need help deciding if it will be worth the fee for the Two extra nights.

Tough call...for 2 nights I would say no, but if you can manage an extra week I would do it.    BTW...10 days from USA to LOS is really tight.  takes me a week just to adjust to the time change ( 12 hours from east coast )  The shortest trip I ever took was 2 weeks and that was a blur.... f s e  ( fuck sleep and eat )

I am not ting tong...my mother had me tested.

Totally worth it.

 

2 days may not seem like much, but it is when it's 2 extra days in Thailand/Pattaya.

 

I've done something similar several times in past, no regrets.

 

You only live...once, right?

 

DO IT

I wish I could do this, but I'm OCD as hell. I would be worrying about it the whole time. I'll prob just bite the bullet and pay the fee. I know once I get there I'll be pissed I didn't.

That is small money in the grand scheme of things. The memories of extending will hopefully last much longer.

Change fees are in addition to any fare difference. If you're on a cheap, non-refundable ticket chances are the fare will go up the closer you get to the date of the flight. So my advice is change it and do it now.

You will regret it if you don't book those extra days there!!!

Pulled the trigger, and coughed up the $230. I was going back and forth with the orbitz rep but they would not budge on the change fee. And theres no way to contact China southern without calling internationally, so I guess I'm stuck on that money too. Hope its money well spent. But I have a feeling it will be.

Think you will determine that the $230 was well worth it once you're there.

 

Long, brutal trip from the US; getting a couple of extra days softens the blow.

ok, you've decided already. But just FYI for all who might want to change while in Patts: consider that it's often not so burocratic over there than in Europe or the US... depending on the carrier you can change very easily. See my example from a few years back: http://www.pattaya-addicts.com/forum/topic/70075-quick-note-on-changing-flightsdates/?p=1105355

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
