Brunei Travel Fair 2016

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in News, RA News


Brunei Travel Fair 


Sneaky sneaky. It’s a good way though to entice people to come to the Brunei Travel Fair organized by Sabre Brunei. Many airlines especially Royal Brunei Airlines are tight lipped about their fares to the media for the upcoming travel fair. Instead they teased on really good deals especially if you are traveling on New Years.. mmmmm..

The press conference was held yesterday at Seasons Restaurant hosted by Sabre Brunei (previous known as Abacus) and it was good to see familiar faces of Irene Soon, General Manager of Sabre Brunei and Halim Abdul Rahman, Senior Manager, Sales & Marketing of Sabre Brunei.

The event itself will happen this Friday 2nd September until 4th September at Green Quartz Multipurpose Hall 7th floor of Centrepoint. Well, it’s famously known for its badminton activities. Looks like there are gonna be many unhappy badminton regulars starting Thursday till Sunday.

According to Halim, he hopes to see an increase in visitors for this travel fair, at least in the region of 15,000. That’s a pretty optimistic figure and with great deals and promotions, I won’t see a problem in the rise of visitors as compared to last year.

Now who will benefit from this travel fair? The locals, of course, the expatriates, the various airlines involved, the travel trade partners (many of them), business partners and of course the national tourist offices. With all the partners involved, it makes it easier for the event to be dynamic and very relevant to the consumer end.

Sabres will provide more than 50 terminals to the nine Sabre-connected travel agencies participating at the fair to help them efficiently service their travelers. For your info, Sabre is a system that helps book your flights and for decades, Brunei travel agents have been using their system.

The Brunei Travel Fair would not be possible with the major involvement of our national air carrier, Royal Brunei Airlines.

Pan Bright Travel Service. One of the travel agents that goes with a big bang with awesome lucky draws. This time the grand prize could be a Hyundai car or a Hermes Birkin. I’m not into bags as you can tell but but wow, these bags are no joke. When I googled, I’m shocked to know the Hermes Birkin can go up to USD 20,000 #shocked.

So for every $200 spent in Pan Bright Travel Service, you are entitled to get 1 lucky draw coupon. The promotion kicks off during the travel fair. The lucky draw campaign will be until 31st March 2017 and there will be a monthly draw of air ticket as well.

Century Travel. I bought a few air fares from them before and they have pretty good service. So far, I would say that they are the fastest in getting the news out on the air fares. I know Royal Brunei Airlines have been tight lipped but somehow word has gone out from certain travel agents on the air fares. Pretty affordable too. Just refer to the poster below.

Freme Travel. As usual, their booths are among the biggest of the lot. Not just focusing on air fights but also domestic tourism. If you want to fly on a holiday package, then Freme Travel have plentiful of choices. I was just browsing their Facebook Page and it’s amazing what cities they can come up with for their customers.

There are packages such as Morocco, Bhutan and Harbin to name a few. So something interesting for travelers to look forward to.


Great promotion from BIBD as well during the Brunei Travel Fair
