Low touch travel

Over the past few months, the SA team have been busy redesigning the way that we work and how we operate our holidays.

Along with how best to control hygiene factors in our vehicles, on our touring programmes and across our partner hotels, lodges and boat network; we have been busy developing a new approach, one that is ideal for travellers that wish to take a more cautious approach to their next trip. 

Low Touch Travel focuses on reducing the number of overall stops you make whilst still ensuring that you still get a complete flavour of your chosen destination. We’ve carefully identified specific locations, Low Touch Hubs, as suitable bases for extended stays and due to their favourable logistical proximity to other places of interest that can easily be reached on day trips, depending on your interests.

Combined, this approach ensures that you continue to travel in the familiar Selective Asia way; but with a reduction in touch points such as changes of hotel rooms, vehicles and guides.

Watch this video from Selective Asia’s founder Nick to learn a little more about our new Low Touch approach 

How does it work?


A reduction in stops means fewer hotel rooms, changes of vehicles and number of guides. 


Hotels are carefully selected for their suitability for longer stays and geographical proximity to key highlights.

  • Low deposit commitment
  • Fully flexible dates of travel up to 30 days before departure
  • Destination exchange up to 30 days before departure

You've arrived! You'll be welcomed at your destination by your private guide, who will safely introduce you to their country. Our local & UK teams will be on hand 24 hours a day in case of unexpected events.
