Thailand hotel launches deals with rooms for 2p a night to boost tourism

Brits looking for cheap Thailand holidays could bag up a room for just 2p a night - but you'll need to be quick if you want to use the deal

A hotel in Thailand has seriously upped the ante when it comes to holiday deals, with rooms currently on offer for just 2p a night.

Yep, you read that right; 2p.

The Harmonize Hotel in Chiang Mai has slashed prices as part of a special discount, working with Thai tour operators at Robin Hood Application and the Tourism Authority of Thailand.

To make use of the deal you'll need to book your room by August 7 using the Robinhoos Travel app, reports local media.

The aim is to help boost tourism during the usually slower seasons.

Don't be disheartened if you don't snap up one of the discounted rooms. Even without the deals, the hotel offers stays starting from £12 a night which you can book on Booking.com so there's still ample opportunity to get a bargain.

Heading on Thailand holidays recently got easier for Brits, as the country scrapped its Thailand Pass registration scheme as well as requirements for the mandatory US$10,000 (£8,200) health insurance.

However, UK holidaymakers will still need to show proof of either full Covid vaccination, or a negative Covid PCR test result taken within 72 hours before departure. This will be checked both before you board your flight, and also once you arrive in Thailand.

Restrictions were removed from July 1. Speaking of the move at the time, Director of the Tourism Authority of Thailand London Sadudee Sangnil said: "This is the news we have been waiting to share.

"The removal of the online Thailand Pass application simplifies travel to Thailand once again and removes what was a barrier to travel for some.

"Although bookings to Thailand have considerably picked up in the last few months, the removal of pre-departure requirements makes Thailand accessible to everyone once more.

"I am confident travel demand will resume in Q4 this year through to Q1 in 2023 and I am excited by the immediate potential for summer travel with the removal of the Thailand Pass."
