Went to matta fair yesterday.

1. 90% price & packages same if you find online. Only few offer exclusive matta price and worthy gifts like luggage bag
2. Entrance opposite of Sunway putra mall you will be swarmed by credit card people BEGGING you to apply. literally begging.
3. so many agent open Airasia & MAS booking counter.

and most dissapointing of all alot of them dont know what they're selling. When ask in detail about the packages, hotels they dont even know. Only know this one 3 star hotel, this one 4 star hotel.

1 funny moment was when i ask this girl about semporna islands and she straight told me KUNDASANG got nicer beach and a more fish then in semporna.

Matta fair becomes like PC or IT fair. Not much deals, can get better or cheaper deals online or elsewhere and full of credit card people.

Yeah those shit credit card people pounce on you the moment you get off the LRT at PWTC station all the way to PWTC.

The same exact thing happens in Singapore's NATAS fair. Expo MRT station only they pounce on you. Both also Citibank. At least Singapore's one I'm immune to them.

Matta fair is for old people who don't know how to browse online. Also, these days promoters really have zero product knowledge and don't study up on what they're selling, job training is practically zero from employers side.

Years back often go Singapore for meeting. became like my 2nd home last time. (I work in Travel industry, most cruise ship companies their regional office is in Singapore.)

Same like Malaysia, got credit card promoters always kacau. You say you are Malaysian they assume you got work permit there. Got once I was free so troll one girl with my salary amount (use my figure in Malaysia but no say the currency) till at the end she ask me sign up, I give my passport she ask, "where's your work permit?"

I said, "I come here meeting mah, not work here permanently mah. Come and go, come and go. You only ask me work as what mah, no ask I work where mah"

See her disappointed face.

Malaysia one? Well Its my own country, cannot pretend foreign worker here lah. Malaysia where got employ so many foreigner work office unlike Singapore one.

And MATTA Fair, normally I put on my exhibitor pass at the LRT there. Somehow it works sometimes, they see you staff they disturb you less. (Exhibitor pass is needed for MATTA Fair, otherwise you go in as visitor have to pay)

People who want to travel to a country where no one has been before, people who travel in a large group that need to do group bookings. Say you have 30 people travel to Vietnam don't tell me you gonna online book 30 tickets at one go?

And then logistics? Hotel?

2 pax still ok, 6 pax still ok, but 30 pax travel together at same time? How if 90 pax? The travel agents doing well nowadays are those doing incentives-the passengers don't pay for their trip, their company belanja them go one. All paid for.

Its just like restaurants vs catering service. Your point is who needs restaurants when nowadays can ownself cook. But those "restaurant" that do well are those that do catering service.


Also short time- you want to go Europe but not much time, so to maximize your time, count on travel agency, bring you many places within shorter period of time.

Not necesarily also. Always compare and compare. Sometimes airlines and hotels give special price to agents, which they can sell cheaper because they want volume

If you go direct they know cannot get volume from you so won't give you so cheap also.

Not to mention sometimes need to arrange many things so that's where middle man come. Not everyone travels free & easy only.

MATTA Fair especially always is Citibank kacau.

Othertimes most of the credit card promoters that I face are foreign banks such as HSBC, Stan Chart, UOB, OCBC.

Maybank and RHB the least.

Though few years back got one Maybank promoter damn rude go block my way and shove a big teddy-tiger in my face.

the above part is understandable
that last part though is no, i've seen so many case that tour bus will divert to some place they called rest stop and stop there for a very long time
some even ask u to buy things
hence why the package look so cheap

this is also the thing that made me lost hope to travel agency and do my own travel

That is if you join the cheap tours. And also depends on the country and tour.

The one I mentioned which we do for 30-90 pax and the company pay one, that one we call Incentive, is custom made and of course no shopping stop one.

That's called shopping stop, not rest stop. Rest stop is like you travel KL to Penang and the bus stop at highway rest area for 30 minutes. (It may seem long, but if you go to Europe its compulsory for long distances-driver welfare)

Also nowadays you can ask travel agency custom, tell them "No shopping stop please" then they will understand.

But rest stop, bo bian lah, even you travel from Bangkok to Pattaya by road also got rest stop mah, driver need get down and rest legs awhile.

Hmm you do your own travel, but if your boss belanja you go travel for hit sales target leh?

QUOTE
count on travel agency, bring you many places within shorter period of time.


Example is if you go for a Europe tour that takes 8 days, but you get to see Paris, Belgium, Amsterdam, Cologne (Germany) and Zurich before flying back. Because its one whole bus.

If you travel on your own maybe you take around 14 days to cover those cities.

And ask you buy things, again, no, its nothing to do with the "shorter period of time", rather its the tour price, any "hidden" charges or not. China tour is notorious for these shopping stops. Japan totally no.

(Ask me next time you want to buy from travel agent/got see travel agent package, I can give you advice and teach you so you don't kena tipu)

Nowadays MATTA Fair alot agents don't wanna sell domestic already, unless its their main business. Reason? 2 different sets of reporting to Kastam. You sell domestic 1 report, international another report. Troublesome.

Went to matta fair yesterday.

1. 90% price & packages same if you find online. Only few offer exclusive matta price and worthy gifts like luggage bag
2. Entrance opposite of Sunway putra mall you will be swarmed by credit card people BEGGING you to apply. literally begging.
3. so many agent open Airasia & MAS booking counter.

and most dissapointing of all alot of them dont know what they're selling. When ask in detail about the packages, hotels they dont even know. Only know this one 3 star hotel, this one 4 star hotel.

1 funny moment was when i ask this girl about semporna islands and she straight told me KUNDASANG got nicer beach and a more fish then in semporna.

That is if you join the cheap tours. And also depends on the country and tour.

The one I mentioned which we do for 30-90 pax and the company pay one, that one we call Incentive, is custom made and of course no shopping stop one.

That's called shopping stop, not rest stop. Rest stop is like you travel KL to Penang and the bus stop at highway rest area for 30 minutes. (It may seem long, but if you go to Europe its compulsory for long distances-driver welfare)

Also nowadays you can ask travel agency custom, tell them "No shopping stop please" then they will understand.

But rest stop, bo bian lah, even you travel from Bangkok to Pattaya by road also got rest stop mah, driver need get down and rest legs awhile.
As long as MATTA still exists. And don't forget there is MITM as well by MCTA.

Exactly, it started from there and became worst in Hong Kong. Thankfully now China government did pass a law saying no more "cheap tours". China tourists themselves against this kind of "shopping stop". Even got people died over it.
