More Travel Package Success.....Thailand we are coming back!

I (and many on this board) are big fans of the Travel Package. I used two recently to get a total of 240k additional US Air DM + (2) 5 night category 7 certificates. We own MVCI properties which gives us access to the 5 night TP's.

 

 

Last night, we pulled the trigger. Booked a two week trip to Thailand for Jan 2015. (2) Business Class tickets on Cathay Pacific. (JFK-HKG-BKK) Connecting to HKT on our own. 5 nights in BKK and 7 nights in Phuket.

 

 

Threads are started from time to time asking the value of MRP's. I priced the two Cathay tickets. $12k each....$24k total plus the value of the stays.

 

 

Looking forward to our adventure!

      We will be trying the Ren. in Phuket for the first time. Our other week will be at the PBC. We have a timeshare week there. We only get there every 3 years or so.

        tker,  you  have a Timeschare  week,  why  you  dont  change  your  week  for  the  Phuket  Beach  club

        or the my Khao  Beach  club..  there  you  get  a  Villa  with  2 bedrooms,  a big   Living  room  for  6  person

        i stay  there  everyu  years  3  a  4  weeks.  i  buy  in Europe  very  cheap  6  timeschare  weeks  very  low  staqndart,

        but  just  good  ernought  for  Echange,  and  schure  all  my  weeks  ,is  change  with M,arriott  4  weeks  in  ******

        and  2  weeks  in Euriope.    the   Renaissance  hotel  is  just  150  meters  from  the  2  Vocation club

        again  where  youi  get  a  Villa,  and  not  a  simple  Hotel  Room. . Hotel  or  vocation Club  not  1  have a   Lounge.

         

        From  next  month  i  will leave  Marriott  for  pay  hotel  rooms, i  will stay  only  with my  echange  weeks

        i   have  my  House  alredy  15  years  in  Phuket,  this  time  i  rent   a  House , best  area,  in  Bangkok

        appartment  17 ten floor  1  Living  room, 1  bedroom, and  a  seperate  Kitchen. the  Appartement  have a  view

        direct  to  the Chaophraya  River.  Bangkok is  the  third  cheapest  city in the  world.  i  pay  for  1 month

        for  this  super  appart  , via  house  trip  , 35000  Bath  or  800  Euro,  this  is  not  30  Euro  per  day.

          Hi Klaus: Our MVCI (One of them) is at Phuket Beach Club. We own a week there and Aruba Surf Club. We are using our week for the trip. Our plans are 6 nights at the Ren. and 7 nights at the Beach Club. It will be our 5 time to Phuket but first time going to the Renaissance. I am pretty excited about that and the Cathay bus class experience.

           

          (Normally we spend time in Bangkok. This time its all beach and relaxing.)

    If I can offer a suggestion: Don't use "full fare" ticket prices to value points. Nobody pays that price. R/T B/C is typically $5-7k, roughly half the value you gave it. You get a more realistic value of what your points are worth.
