Travel agents in Vietnam have been introducing such new services as private transport and tour guides to meet rising local demand following the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) epidemic.

With these new services, travelers will have a more convenient travel experience while having full control of their time, according to a representative of state-owned Vietravel.

The services are quite common in other countries but are still fresh in Vietnam, he continued, adding that they would help solve many problems regarding transportation that tourists face during their trips.

As the country restarts its tourist sector after the COVID-19 epidemic, free and easy tours, which include only flight tickets and accommodations, have become increasingly preferred by Vietnamese travelers.

Private transport and tour guide services are thus very suitable for being integrated into such tours, the representative explained.

Saigontourist also reported a similar trend, with nearly 2,100 free and easy tours sold since the beginning of June.

The travel agent has offered tours lasting for two to three nights which include accommodations at premium hotels and resorts in popular destinations such as Phu Quoc, Da Lat, Nha Trang, Quy Nhon, and Da Nang, with prices starting from VND2.39 million (US$102) per guest.

According to Lai Minh Duy, general director of TST Tourist Company, local travel agents have rolled out small tours for this summer, which can start with a minimum of eight guests.

"Businesses are trying to add retail services and help their customers complete certain parts of their journey, namely hotel check-in, restaurant service, air tickets, and sightseeing tickets," Duy elaborated.

“We are committed to providing services with the best quality.”
