10 Reasons to Book With a Travel Company… You May Be Surprised!

If you’re planning a vacation to Vietnam & Southeast Asia, you may come across the option of booking your holiday through a travel company. So many people may ask why? What’s the point of having someone else plan my entire vacation abroad? Can’t I just get along on my own? Of course you can! Hundreds of thousands of travelers come to Southeast Asia every year and get by on their own. So why book with MinMax Travel when you’re planning a trip to Vietnam?

Here are ten reasons you might want to consider:

10. The Local Experience

Every country in Southeast Asia observes different customs, speaks different languages… even eats different foods! Unless you’re a walking encyclopedia (or never take your eyes off your smartphone), you may bump into some difficulties along the road. When you travel with MinMax, regardless of the destination, you’ll be traveling with a local. Locals speak the language, know the customs, best sites, landmarks and history, and can help you experience the destination first hand. There’s no experience like the local experience when it comes to a foreign destination!

9. Reliable Logistics

If you’ve already traveled through Asia, you may have encountered some pretty revolting transportation. 25 tourists crammed into a 14-seater minivan for a 4-hour drive… A broken down bus in the middle of nowhere with the tourists waiting in the burning hot summer sun- it can get pretty rough out there. MinMax only uses the safest and most reliable modes of transport and will never leave you crammed or stranded in uncomfortable situations!

8. The Best Accommodation

Reading up on TripAdvisor, Agoda, Lonely Planet etc. for accommodation can only get you so far. Reviews can be old, hotels can change ownership and travel preferences are extremely relative. MinMax only books its guests in top rated hotels (for all budgets), is constantly updating its lists and takes customer feedback very seriously. We always aim to please!

7. The Best Eateries

Want to weed out the “testing” process and just eat all the best local dishes? We know all the best eateries (from local joints to top-end restaurants) in all destinations across the country- we can assure you’ll only get delicious food that’s always hygienically prepared! We don’t want you getting as sick just as much as you don’t!

6. You Won’t Be Ripped Off

A common complaint for travelers in Vietnam is that they feel like they’re always “getting ripped off”. Our tour rates are some of the most competitive in the business, and once you’re on tour with us, everything’s taken care of. We only give business to the most reputable companies in the country and our guides are always making sure you’re happy with your purchases and experiences. We’ve got your back!

5. One and Done

Don’t want to stress about the planning, booking, payments, logistics, cultural barriers and regular difficulties of international travel? Tell us how much you want to spend, what time frame you’re hoping to travel, where you want to go and we’ll figure out the rest. Leave the hard stuff to us so you can just sit back and enjoy your vacation!

4. Maximize your Time

If you’re traveling on your own, you may end up wasting precious hours of your vacation searching for hotels, trying to find main attractions, unknowingly taking the 10 hour long bus instead of the 3 hour direct route… We maximize your time in the country so you get to experience everything that you wanted, no matter how long or short your stay is!

3. Travel Advice

First time visiting and don’t know where to go? Just ask our MinMax experts and they’ll give you a whole list of awesome destinations, cool experiences and interesting spots that you may not know exist!

2. Get off the Tourist Trail

We don’t restrict our tours to the “main sites” of the country. Our job is to help you experience the entirety of Vietnam and Southeast Asia. If you’re looking to feel and experience the country like a local- you’ve come to the right place.

MinMax Travel is owned and operated by locals. From our passionate office staff to our professional, highly rated drivers and guides, your business directly helps support the local community!
