Travel Exclusive Asia is a young and dynamic Destination Management Company operating from its ‘mission control’ center in Bangkok, Thailand.

The innovative travel company is the brainchild of founder André van der Marck and co-founder Gerben Bloemendaal, who believe that the current Destination Management Company (or DMC) industry is mostly populated with companies borne from the same mould who offer very much the same product.

We offer tailor-made itineraries in Thailand, Myanmar and Vietnam

Travel Exclusive Asia presents its business partners with exceptional opportunities to forge a different kind of journey for their customers, journeys that are designed and delivered with a renewed and revitalized approach to the term ‘tailor-made’.

A well versed and insightful veteran of the travel and tourism industry with over 25 years’ experience in the operation, management and creation of holiday and travel product, André knew from early on that things could be done differently. And thus, he has set upon achieving exactly this, at the helm of an exciting new player on the DMC scene… Travel Exclusive Asia.

We offer original tours and stays in South East Asia

Travel Exclusive Asia is dedicated to originality in the tours it offers. It controls the genuineness of the product, the superb level of service provided to partners and guests on the ground and at the same time contributes to local communities making sure they benefit.

On 5 May 2020, Travel Exclusive Asia debuted with Thailand, Myanmar and Vietnam as its destinations. Other countries in South East Asia will soon follow, in the travel company’s goal to offer a total solution to its clients’ needs.

Travel Exclusive Asia offers travelers remarkable holidays in South East Asia. These are designed exclusively for travelers, tailor-made journeys that are as intrepid as one so desires, as luxurious as one so chooses and infused with an inspirational sense of ‘story-telling’ that honours each and every destination visited and piques the curiosity.

Our tours are unlike any other on the market. We do not simply shepherd customers from one temple or beach to the next. We offer genuine opportunities to mingle with the locals, to share in their everyday lives and to get to really know a destination, with many truly unforgettable memories and once-in-a-lifetime experiences to cherish.

We offer a professional approach with minimal impact on the eco-footprint

We have selected our local suppliers and ground handlers very carefully to make sure they can provide the travel opportunities we want to share with our customers in a way that is both highly professional and minimizes the tourism impact, disperses the tourism benefits and supports local communities.

Our travel professionals are highly experienced and passionate explorers and journey-makers, who know their particular destinations like the back of their hand.

To travel with Travel Exclusive Asia is to immerse oneself in a destination, to share in the stories of the locals and to appreciate the beauty, character and culture of South East Asia.


Our team believes in leveraging the individual entrepreneurship of our partners, who will be building the operations in their respective markets combined with the values and delivery commitments of Travel Exclusive Asia.
