Guaranteed Departure (SIC) Programs – Departure Dates Season 2023

Discover

The updated Easia Active Guaranteed Departure (or “Seat-In-Coach”) production for 2023 enables outbound Tour Operators and Travel Agencies around the world to serve their active, adventurous, and budget-minded travelers with guaranteed departure tours offering a more extensive variety of sport types and a spectrum of intensity levels, throughout Thailand, Vietnam, Laos & Cambodia.

Designed to suit multiple traveler types & styles, from active leisure solo travelers to groups of more experienced adventure travel enthusiasts looking for a fun & active group experience, all our financially risk-free seat-in-coach tours offer immersive exploration of our destinations actively and respectfully. The tours also provide ample opportunities for your travelers to immerse in the local and welcoming Southeast Asian culture and have meaningful encounters along their journey.

Each program includes outdoor excursions such as hiking, kayaking, or easy cycling, allowing your travelers to explore unique areas off the beaten path. At the same time, they connect and share experiences with the welcoming people of Asia.

By integrating visits and excursions facilitated by small community-based tourism organizations as well as overnights at local family-run homestays and more, your travelers will not only be able to learn a great deal from the local culture. Still, they will be able to directly benefit the communities they visit financially, allowing them to leave a positive impact on the destinations they visit.

These guaranteed-departure (SIC) tours are specifically designed for travel agents and tour operators looking to offer their travelers:

  • Exciting and active holidays in Southeast Asia, where your travelers explore a range of cultural and natural sites through hiking, cycling, kayaking, etc., instead of being whisked around in the traditional “hop-on, hop-off” fashion
  • More time spent outdoors, away from crowded spaces, surrounded by nature
  • Respectful encounters with local communities
  • A more conscious way of traveling, aimed at enabling your customers to leave a positive impact on the regions visited
  • A great join-in option for single travelers who prefer to travel in groups

Key elements:

  • Guaranteed departures from 2 pax up
  • Small and intimate international groups from 2 to 16pax (max)
  • Professional & knowledgeable English-speaking guides who have in-depth knowledge of the region and are trained in first aid
  • 24/7 on-spot support team
  • Personally inspected rooms in vetted accommodation.
  • Guaranteed high-quality sports equipment and transportation
  • Well-balanced itineraries of outdoor excursions and cultural/historical visits
  • No financial obligations; you simply pay as you book
  • Flexibility → your travelers can privatize a tour upon request

The tours listed below will offer you the opportunity to promote & sell well-balanced active leisure and hiking holidays in Asia and capitalize on the growing ‘slow travel’ trend once travel to Southeast Asia resumes.

What’s new for 2023

Shorter itineraries are now available! From now on, you can book just a part of our active & leisure programs in Cambodia and Laos, affording you greater flexibility when designing your itineraries. Easily combined with other modules, these shorter programs will allow you to offer tailor-made trips at a competitive price.
