Privacy Policy - ASIA Travel

Please read below our Privacy Policy which is valid through this entire site: ASIA Travel

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend ASIA Travel

Thank you for using ASIA Travel For many years we did not had a Privacy Policy publicly displayed on ASIA Travel for the simple reason that most Privacy Policies have a clause that state that it may change at any time. It was for this reason, that we never publicly displayed our policy even though as a company, we have always had a very strict internal Privacy Policy which is followed to the letter. In addition to this, however often do the average user check a site's privacy policy? I know most of us here never do.

Further down you can read the official "more legal" Privacy Policy if you wish, however it really is very simple. Any information that we obtain from you be it, your email, name or other information is never sold or given to any third party (this excludes hotel reservations where your details are shared between us and the hotel where you are making the reservation). We never send out unsolicited email to any of our users at any time. If you feel that you have been receiving something from us which you should not, then please let us know and we will immediately look into the matter. We respect your privacy, in exactly the same way as we respect our own.

Our hotel reservations are made through an encrypted and secure SSL connection meaning that the information your provide when making a reservation is shared only with us and the hotel where you are making the reservation. Also, because many users startedasking for immediate confirmations to their hotel reservations we signed up with a third party that allows us to do just that. This added convenience however does mean that the privacy policy of the third party comes into effect once you pass from our site to theirs.

Now for the more legal version:

Privacy Policy

ASIA Travel may be referred to below as the site, or the website, or by name.


You will not be asked for any personal details that are irrelevant to contacting you. As you are making hotel reservations certain details are required to ensure that the reservation is processed correctly and guaranteed for you as per your reservation.

The type of personal information we request are:

Credit Card Information (name of cardholder, credit card number and expiry date)

Travel details, including :

proposed check-in and check-out dates

In specific situations, to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems and enforce our User Agreement. We only share your information with our service providers (hotels) and third party reservation parties as the information is essential to processing your hotel reservations correctly. The sole purpose for this disclosure is to make the ASIA Travel web site more effective for you.
