Regarding foreigners he said that he approved of the travel bubble scheme and the plans to quarantine people for 14 days on arrival. 

Foreigners still do the 14 days jail .....   lol

So do Thais when they come into the country.

I'd be up for a 2,500bht return flight and 500bht/night.

AirAsia keep sending me '990bht special offer' emails, but when I go to the website they aren't there.

 

Sounds like all the special offers are a scam.

When I can click and pay, without paging through nonsense, I'll go.

 Was offered a special deal from a  girl but when I went, she wasn't there. lol

What about foreigners who have been in Thailand for the duration of Covid and have never been out of the country?

No problem. Ignore the comments about '14 days jail'. That was when the guy was talking about bubble tourism.

Some posters get confused easily.

The hotel discounts are available on a case by case basis. I have been offered a discount in a hotel and I am a foreigner, but I do not get the 'buy the voters' vouchers and I have never done quarantine.

Does the fellow know that it is low season. as @Swimfan said above you would normally get a 2-3 star resort for 1000 baht or less at this time of the year. He is only talking up the normal prices to make a discount sound good.

 

The 2 star resort I used to stay in has closed even though it has the old style bungalows that were 350 baht per night.

Indeed.  Can't see they can ever command the same pre Covid prices again when the extent of the farang premium becomes widely known.

Bangkok Air had 2,500 thb for round-trip promotion last month. I've booked it no problem.

 

AirAsia is more annoying though - usually they offer only a few seats at special price and you can't see a list of discounted routes. I prefer to book when they have 20% off sale on all tickets.
