Thai Hotels Association has launched a big promotion after flood recovery called Beautiful Thailand Buy One Get One Free, running from 15 Dec 2011 to 15 Jan 2012 to boost tourism during the remainder of an underperforming peak season.

Mr. Prakit Chinamornpong, THA president told that late last week the association was working with the Tourism Authority of Thailand to win back business lost due to heavy floods in and around Bangkok.

Beautiful Thailand Buy One Get One Free offer the second night free when booking a room at any participating hotel. The package offers six price categories: Bt2,000; Bt2,800; Bt3,500; Bt4,200; Bt5,000 and Bt5,800. Rates include breakfast.

“Forward bookings are very poor due to the flood situation,” said Mr Prakit. “So we are offering special packages to draw people back to Thailand,” he said.

Participating hotels will get a promotional boost as their names will be appear on the TAT website and in media including promotions issued by 20 TAT international offices worldwide.

THA is now recruiting hotels to join the programme which it will need to finanalise by 8 December.

“We are not sure how many hotels will join the scheme,” said Mr Prakit.

As for the booking channel, THA will act only as the coordinator for members. Other details on how consumers will book or pay have still to be finalised.
