These incredible fares will only be on sale at STA Travel’s stores in London Victoria (52 Grosvenor Gardens, London SW1W 0AG) and Birmingham (37 Corporation St, Birmingham B2 4LS) from 9am. 

STA Travel’s UK country manager Tim Fryer, said: “We are really excited to be able to bring these amazing fares to our customers, and expect demand will be extremely high so get in line to snap them up. 

“Bangkok is one of the most exciting and vibrant cities in the world and is the perfect place to start your adventure. Whether it’s the first stop on a round-the-world trip, the gateway to exploring south-east Asia or the springboard for the chance to hit the beautiful Thai beaches after a few days of living it up in the city, Bangkok is a great city to start from.” 

The £49 fares to Bangkok will only be available in person at the London Victoria and Birmingham stores, there will be no option to buy via telephone or online.

Both the London Victoria and Birmingham stores will open at 9am on April 28, the first 49 people in line at both locations will be able to secure the £49 fares. Only one £49 fare is able to be bought per person. 

On top of this, for those who miss out on these amazing fares, there will be another STA Travel exclusive offer that morning of 49 return tickets to Bangkok for £299, in both the London Victoria and Birmingham stores, which will be able to be booked with STA Travel’s exclusive £49 deposit.

Fryer said: “Last year, when we unveiled £75 fares to New Zealand, there were people queuing around the block for two nights, so make sure that you’re prepared to give it 100% to snap up one of these £49 deals to Bangkok. Good luck!”
