Has anyone traveled with Fleetway travel to Vietnam and Cambodia as I am very interested in deal they are offering. I was told transfers are £95 per person. Would you recommend booking them as an extra or to arrange transfers yourself when you arrive? Also are trips easy enough to arrange from the hotels as they are no trips included? Thanks for your help in advance.

Haven't been to Vietnam with them, but transfers in other regions have been sensibly priced. I'd sense check them against a quote on resorthoppa.

We travelled to Vietnam & Cambodia with Fleetway Travel in May/June this year-(apart from our honeymoon) it's the best holiday we've had. It's the first time we've travelled with Fleetway-we couldn't recommend them highly enough-they choose the best hotels for price/location/comfort; maximise the itinerary within the timeframe; provide fantastic administration & advice. We booked the transfers through Fleetway and were happy we did-it made everything really quick & easy. The online company they used provided an excellent service. All hotels we stayed at were able to book trips but it was also easy to book online. We'd recommend thinking about what you'd like to see & do while you're there if you'll only be in each location for a few days, as we were. HCM City we used a local map provided by the hotel & mostly walked around the city to see the different attractions (check them out online with a well known review site). Others took trips to CuChi Tunnels and Mekong Delta and both were recommended-we'd do these trips if we get chance to return. We didn't take any trips from HoiAn either as there's plenty to see by foot in HoiAn & we wanted to relax in the sun on the beautiful,empty beach. In Siem Reap we hired a large taxi for the day with another couple to explore Angkor Wat & Angkor Thom. There's plenty to explore in Siem Reap too-again the hotel provided a local map. From Hanoi we did an overnight trip to Halong Bay-a must, & explored Hanoi by foot. The hotel happily bought tickets for us for different attractions saving us queuing up-Water Puppets, Hanoi Hilton... Don't miss out-BOOK & have a great time. NB Vietnam visa approx. £80 each

We travelled to Vietnam and Cambodia a few years ago, but not with Fleetway Travel. In Cambodia we took a TukTuk from the airport, and in Vietnam a taxi we just picked up when we arrived. Although it was a few years back now, £95 sounds an awful lot - I don't think we paid anywhere near that amount, though I guess it depends what you get for that. The TukTuk was a great experience though - much more fun than your average transfers!

Sorry, have not been to Vietnam & Cambodia, but I travel extensively with my job. I would always recommend booking the extra's with the travel company apart from saving hassel it can stop you being ripped off.

What are the ages of people who use Fleetway Travel? We are 30 and  I wondered if there was a wide age range or if it was more designed for older people. We were looking to go to Vietnam with them Many thanks.

We booked a flight and hotel with them as a couple so it wasn't a tour. They're really a flight/deal aggregator and don't really run their own tours. They basically act as the middleman and another company will be taking the tour so depending on the tour operator it may be sold through various different channels; some aimed at younger folk, some at older folk potentially. Ask them who the local tour operators are and then post a question on that well known trip site to try and gauge tour demographic.

I have to admit I am a bit ancient at 64 but there was a very wide range of people on our trip to Iceland and it was so well organised (right from booking, confirmations, tour info, arrangements within the country)that I have been recommending them to friends and family members of all ages. I suppose the type of holiday you book will be more likely to determine the age range you meet. The actual tours included in the price were not designed specifically for older people, in fact on one of them it was mostly a younger age group 20+ 30+ All in all we had a terrific trip at an amazing price with no travel problems whatsoever. I hope you do the same!

Don't know, but I have used them since having children (from my 30's - 50's), so peak season which 30 somethings without children tend to avoid. I'd look at Tripadvisor reviews of places they recommend. If the hotel sounds like what you are looking for, I can't recommend Fleetway highly enough. Knowledgeable and very competitive prices.

We are in our early sixties, that said the holiday and the service they offered was first class and suitable for all ages.

Based on my experience, the is no definitive age group to which Fleetway caters. However certain types of holidays appeal to a particular age group. An all inclusive holiday in remote secluded beach would have different customers to the ones in shared apartments in a drinking and partying resort.

Are you sure Fleetway travel to Vietnam? Re your question: we have only travelled within Europe with Fleetway. You choose the hotel and I guess that dictates the age group you will find. The air travel is not chartered and each time we have gone as independent travellers. We have found them very competitive pricewise, yet still helpful and professional. Hope this helps.

Hello. We booked a trip to Egypt (we are in our 50s) but we would have had an equally great time had we been in our 30s! We met people of all ages on our deal-young families, single parents, teenagers, a couple of honeymooners,people in their 20s and 30s, all very happy in the resort. Remember Fleetwood is just a Travel Agency, much like any other, so they are not age-specific. They just put deals together for you. I suggest you choose the type of deal you want,what sort of budget, then ask Fleetwood if they think it's appropriate for your particular needs, eg, tours, resorts,entertainment, etc or better still, they might even come up with ideas you may not have thought of. Hope this helps , and oh, I hope you have a great holiday!

I think you would have the same issue with any travel co apart from 18-30! You are going on a fantastic trip, I'm very envious. I'm sure you'll meet up with people of a similar age and outlook. People who are older in years and are visiting Vietnam will be young in heart and spirit, not a trip for those set in their ways. Make sure you have a good camera to record your trip and enjoy the experience!

What a difficult question! I am in my 50's my husband 40's and we have a great time wherever we go. I can't really remember ages, or even think of them! A boring person could be 20,30 or 60. Hope you decide to go for the experience and not the age group.... Ps. We had a really good time with them! :)

I have only been to Iceland with Fleetway, and it was a short trip, but the ages were mixed - 50/50 under and over 40, I would say. and they seem to attract a fairly laid-back clientele, so chronological age isn't so important. It certainly wasn't overburdened with old people.

Husband and I (early 60s) went to Portugal last year with Fleetway, but it wasn't a tour. Had a long weekend. Fleetway took care of the arrangements and we travelled as a couple, so no idea of the usual age of their clientele. I would add that there were no problems with their organisation and we'll happily use them again.

No idea about the age range (we're 50+) but really don't think it matters. Their service and help in arranging a holiday that we wanted, not what a "brochure" offered, was excellent. I'm sure they would be able to get you what you are looking for.

We have used Fleetway many times and been completely satisfied with their service. We are in our forties but know from personal experience (a number of our family & friends have acted on recommendations by us) that the whole spectrum of ages from teens to retired people have all been equally satisfied too. We would thoroughly recommend Fleetway - their booking agents are very knowledgeable and can help you to put together whatever you need. Hope this helps.

All ages seem to be catered for - we are in our late 50's and went to Iceland but a great spread of generations seemed to be there too and enjoyed it as much as us.

There was quite a range of ages in the group who travelled to Vietnam when we went with Fleetway Travel. However, as it wasn't a guided trip it was up to us whether we mixed with them or not. We tended to do our own thing and passed the time of day with others. However, part way through the trip we became more friendly with a couple slightly older than us and shared taxi's, had a couple of meals with them, etc. We're still in contact with them and meet up from time to time. We have only used Fleetway Travel for our trip to Vietnam & Cambodia but can't recommend them highly enough - He really knows what he's doing and had found the best hotels in the best locations for exactly the right length of time in each place for the time we had over there. We have travelled extensively and will definitely go back to him when arranging long haul trips. Hope this helps and don't miss out on a fabulous trip - we absolutely loved Vietnam & Cambodia and would love to go back

My wife and I ( both in our early 50s ) travelled with Fleetway to Vietnam earlier this year with our 3 teenage children. Whilst we didnt really get to know many of the others it seemed there was a wide range of ages. And I have to say all travel arrangements were spot on.
