Your flights

We are happy to arrange flights for all our clients, regardless of whether you are departing from the UK or from almost any other worldwide destination. 

Why don’t we include the cost of international flights in the prices displayed on the website?

Some tour operators choose to include an ‘assumed’ flight cost with their holidays, giving an overall ‘package’ price, which is often very misleading, and usually assumes the highest airfare for a destination.

Whilst tour and accommodation prices remain relatively stable from one month to the next, there are huge variations in the cost of flights due to season, availability, departure point, route, and any preference of airline. By quoting flights separately we are able to search for discounted fares and special offers, and we believe we are giving all our customers, wherever they live, a more honest price.

Peace of mind

Selective Asia is a fully licensed and bonded tour operator. We hold an Air Travel Organisers License (ATOL # 9203) issued by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

When you book any ex-UK flights with us you are also booking your financial protection, at no additional cost to yourself. We can arrange discounted flights from the UK to all Asian destinations and beyond.

If your booking does not fall under the CAA’s ‘package’ criteria, either because you reside outside of the UK or because your holiday does not include any flight sectors (or both), your payments are protected by our Association of Bonded Travel Organisers Trust (ABTOT) license # 5329. ABTOT exists to protect you, the customer, from losing money or being stranded abroad because of the failure of your travel firm.

Which airlines do we recommend?

We hold no allegiance to any particular carrier and have access to over 200 airlines' fares. This allows us to offer you the most competitive fare available. That said, there are select number of carriers who we consider to offer the best balance of value and a high quality service to our key Asian destinations. Your Destination Specialist will be happy to advise you further on these.

Offsetting Carbon Emissions

Air travel is one of the many sources of the worlds pollution, due to the carbon dioxide emissions from aircraft contributing to our rising levels of greenhouse gasses. Along with working responsibly ourselves, Selective Asia is committed to encouraging our clients to help reduce this negative impact by providing a voluntary carbon offset facility with every booking

Flight tips

Flights becoming cheaper if you leave it to the last minute is a myth; the reality is in fact quite the opposite. Book early to secure your preferred dates and the right price.
