All Malaysia Discounts, Offers and Sale - December 2018
I'm in Falkirk :D
Have a great trip to my hometown!
Booked flights for next march from edi to KL with Turkish Airlines for 392 + 50 pp rebate from Amex travel who I booked through for missus and I. Will book seats 100 days before flying for free unlike Emirates where you have to pay to be sure you'll be sat together and in an economy seat you like. Sadly once we booked at same time so we each got the Amex rebate the cost hiked otherwise would've posted it. KL is great though we're not spending there - off to a wedding then backpacking round Vietnam and Cambodia. Can't wait. Voted hot as great price, esp since us cheapskates up north don't often get long haul bargains. (highfive)
Thanks for the clarification that Edinburgh is the Scottish one. Obviously there are a number of other Edinburghs which would be equally relevant to a UK deals site.
Only trouble is it is flying with Emirats. Awful if things go wrong - and they did at Dubai, big time
Really poor airline with bad connections. I'm in the travel trade and we have so many other airlines not that much more and will get you there much quicker.
Air China and China Eastern are my go to for cheap flights to Asia. There's always going to be a stop off as they fly through hubs which is the price you pay for a cheap flight. Sometimes these stops are short as an hour. Its worth playing around with the dates and times until you find a suitable trip. I looked at flights to Hong Kong and the direct option was about £200 per person more and only saved 2hrs each way. I opted for the cheaper hub option so we could put those savings into better hotels that we'd be spending far more time in anyway.
Malaysia is a wonderful country and the temperature abt the same all year round.
I used to pay £600 direct LHR-KUL on Malaysia Airlines before their troubles - they may be cheaper these days? Would still pay to fly direct than spend 20+ hours waiting in a Chinese airport.
During off season! :(

Realized my error on the missing links now thanks, didn't see it was a multi city listing :) Not sure why it was showing a different price before as clicked same link, all good now tho and seems like a great deal.
I think if you try and buy the one-way AMS-DPS it is £400. But buying it as a multi trip is cheaper. All three SIngapore flights are on the same link.
Was viewing in incognito mode, although skyscanner claim they don't slowly increase their prices anyway. I see £299 now so no idea.
Great deal 8) Thanks OP 👌
MusaX - if you don't the fact just shut up. Malaysia is secular country and official religion is Islam but is not a Muslim country. It multi faith and regilious country and don't **** compare with other nutty Muslim country. Due to recent political change, langkawi has lost the duty free status. This because some nutty Muslims doesn't like nudity, achohol, LGBT, dog that discriminating others.
Might try and get this for a one way trip on its own Then forget to come home!!!
Think I need to correct this - Malaysia is not a Muslim country (despite what the religious authorities there are trying to claim). It's a secular country and was created as such. There have been numerous articles and statements on the matter by legal experts there.
expire this no tickets available dog
Hi and thanks for that. We are going to meet my wife's family who she has never met before. They have our itinerary sorted in Sarawak as I do believe there's a festival on in first week of June. Looking forward to that. Second week is going be spent on Langkawi
Borneo is the best place to visit in Malaysia, flying to Kota Kinabalu.
Fantastic country can't wait to go back at some point! Mee goreng, satay, milo... Yum
This a a good deal. KL isn't the greatest SE Asian city....but is a fantastic hub for cheap onward travel to other destinations like Thailand, Indonesia, Cambodia, Burma, Vietnam and even Australia....using very cheap but efficient airlines like air asia. So voted hot....as they are both good airlines and they are direct flights. :)
got flights for end of May with Klm for £350. Newcastle to Malaysia via Amsterdam. under 15 hours. next cheapest was emirates with 34 hours travel time.
How dare they steal that idea from us :D
Can't really find any at £300 or abouts price as quoted
Flown with them 4 times. I have ONLY ever selected them based on price as the service is TERRIBLE (and usually when the price difference is over £80 as I'd rather spend the extra without having the hassle.) Customer services non existent. They'll change tickets as they see fit. Website used to be terribly UNSTABLE charging but not issuing tickets. Doha has to be one of the most boring transit airports ever and you're usually there for several hours. If you get tickets to Indonesia at £289 take them... The next best price I've ever had is £400 with Garuda (direct though!)
They'll demand it if your a migrant worker
LHR-DOH this year.
Don't think there was any need for that rude comment :/ I had better experience with Thomson flying to the Med, simply sharing my experience. It seems there are more positives than negatives, also seems they've upgraded aircraft since as this was a few years ago. Personally due to the experience I had I would still choose a different airline where possible. As stated, I flew from Qatar to U.K. which is classed as long haul.
Saw this post late - Chinese New Year is often the driest and hottest time of the year in Malaysia (and next year it falls at the end of January) so Kuala Lumpur will be dry and hot then. (think 34-38 degrees Celcius). Capitol Hotel is only a 3 star hotel but the location is pretty good as it's close to the Golden Triangle area of KL. If anyone here bought this deal, the hotel is almost next to the biggest (and most famous) technology shopping mall in Malaysia, Low Yat Plaza.
Seminyak is just up the road from Kuta. Kuta is party central and the Australian ibiza. Nice if that's what your after. The area is very westernised in terms of tourism and shops but still plenty of local stuff going on. Stay clear of the street wagons selling food (warung) unless you like to be ill. If you need to change money in local exchanges double check it before you leave the counter. Car travel is hard due to small roads, crazy traffic and locals who have evolved their own driving laws. I suggest getting off the beaten track a bit, head inland to somewhere more rural. Ubud is a popular retreat and home of spiritualism with a nice laid back atmosphere and cafe culture. Go on step further, rent a bike and tour the island. Out side of the large areas traffic is easier to negotiate. Plenty of marvellous sites to see with cheap accommodation from £5 per night, room for 2, including breakfast. Though admitted this may be a little more expensive from when I went 5 years ago.
Curious to hear if anyone managed to get it today at £469!
Thanks for the advice. Could you point me to the t's&c's please? EDIT: Never mind, I see it. Thanks for bringing to my attention!
You should ask for a refund for the debit card fees as their it's & c's state no charge.
Dreamliner got nothing on the A380 mate.
I am going to be politically incorrect and say the article from wiki sounds like something straight out of demarcation between BN, PAS, DAP etc
a Kl lang :) My brother lives in PJ and for those interested, he did an app to navigate the best places to eat in Penang within a day (or 8 hours to be precise) and those who know Penang and the traffic, will find this a useful tool :)
I don't think the expiry matters all that match; I believe it's just to check your passport won't expire before you are due to come back (not entirely certain). You should be able to add hold luggage direct from the airline itself.
The 787 is the best plane I've ever flown on long haul, it's the better cabin pressure and oxygen values vs. others I reckon: it doesn't make your skin & sinuses yucky and make you feel like crap. I'd always choose it over any other if given option...
You need hold travelling to Malaysia due tormoli of over throwing the government due PM has been involved 1 billion scandal bank in to his personnel account and have got his Muslims friends - Saudi's to claim that it's a donation from them. http://www.wsj.com/specialcoverage/malaysia-controversy http://www.wsj.com/specialcoverage/malaysia-controversy
You're right, point taken. Am sure it is a good airline.
Sorry who said Turkish Airlines isn't the best? It was rated the 4th best airline for 2015 according to Skytrax. There is nothing wrong with it at all. As somebody who has 80,000+ airline miles with them they are the only airlines I'll use anymore. Cheaper than most, good food, young fleet, brilliant airport lounges in IST. OP I can only guess you've never actually flown with them.

Nothing at those prices. Cheapest during November (on matrix view) is £386 booking direct. THY are good to fly with - got one of the newest fleets and onboard service is good. Long gone are the days when we used to say THY stood for They Hate You :)
The hotel listed was in KK, so factor in at least a couple of hours to get to and from the national park...so two days.
No, only thing to watch out for is if there are any denggi fever reports. Unlikely in central kuala lumpur though as it tends happen closer to more residential areas (clogged drains, trapped water in vegetation, etc). Maybe I'd advise upping the good bacteria in your gut so that you can enjoy the local cuisines will less fear. Rule of thumb in Malaysia is the dirtier the eatery looks, the better the food will be. Very glad you had such a memorable and pleasant experience! :3 Malaysians are generally warm but that's very good outcome - Hopefully the cheap fee you mentioned was less than £10 though! Travelling from the main part of Langkawi to the more northern section doesn't really cost that much.
I'm sure you can fly direct to KL from heathrow with malaysian and cut out all the wasted time.
We set off on the climb at 9am one morning, got to the peak just before sunset and got back to the bottom at 1pm in the afternoon.
Amazing... What a country. Friendly locals, super safe, great food and much to see and explore. We got stuck in langkawi town centre one evening and couldn't get a taxi back to our hot so a local offered up a lift in return for a cheap fee. You probably wouldn't take up that offer anywhere else!
Exactly my point, we are on the same hymn sheet, the 5 star refers to this below and not to anything else outside of this := http://www.qatarairways.com/global/en/our-awards.page
The 5* here relates to the Airlines Skytrax rating and nothing to do with accommodation (none included in this price). It is slightly misleading because most people will assume it's a hotel rating. Maybe a better worded title 'Qatar (5* rated airline)' would have been appropriate, but gota generate the heat X) Either way, seems to be decent prices and from experience, Qatar are one of the best airlines to travel with.
Yes. I'm Indonesia (Bali is a part of the country) and I think it's totally worth it making a trip to that side of the world. It will be the experience of a lifetime to you, and at this ticket price, it'd a steal. Go to Bali but don't stay too long in kuta. Spend more time in ubud instead. Language won't be a problem since there are tons of Australia's tourist around (uuurgh) and most balinese can speak English, at least the involved in the tourism trade. If you have the time, I suggest getting out of Bali and seeing the rest of the country too for a bit.
I'd recommend Tune Hotel to you. They're basically the budget hotel side of AirAsia, which is a budget carrier in the region. I've stayed with them repeatedly and the experience had been great (and most importantly, clean) so far. Check out TripAdvisor for more reviews. They also have branches in London if you want to check it out locally.
Very glad you had a great experience!
You'll be bored to death spending 15 days in Langkawi. Even three to four days is a stretch. Heat for the price though, the flights are dirt cheap.
15 nights is a long time in Langkawi..But a boat ride to penang for a few nights would make this still a reasonable holiday
Malaysia is a country. that's illegal to use a trademark. the country can sue this guys. lol.
There's a brand called Malaysia?? Oo Or rather, a clothing line called Malaysia?
This looks interesting....poised to order
what's it lined with?
The hood doesn't look like cotton - both inside and outside, so 100% looks questionable.
Worth noticing that if you were to look at the accident history of turkish and malaysian you would choose malaysian any day. The fact is that airlines learn and improve. The only things you can compare on is price quality and or time
I know this is personal preference but I find MAS has a better flight time
oh, my bad, sorry. Thanks for the info
urr, no BA fly it too!
The spicy prawns and coconut rice is the traditional breakfast in Malaysia. Nasi Lemak! yummy !
I should probably point our how your comment is insensitive and inappropriate, but I assume it's comments like this, and irrational fear, that leads to cheap prices so perhaps I'll let you live in ignorance instead.
And then you'll disappear lol!
Heat for malaysia
I'm just amazed at these prices over Easter holidays. I've been watching prices and it was hovering around £5-600 then it suddenly dropped. Usually the prices to med based resorts are inflated at this time, but this is incredible deal for school holidays.
