    His name is Carsten, (ex)owner of Thasadet Cafe and the travel agency.

    He issued e-tickets which weren't paid for; typically he would issue a genuine paid for e-ticket for the flight from Udon to BKK, but when the customer arrived at Swampy for onward international travel, he would find that it was unpaid.

    It has come as quite a surprise to many as Carsten was well established in Nong Khai and this seemed well out of character. He did a runner back to Germany a month or so ago.

    He was familiar with the services of this particular travel agency for the past approx 10 years and as stated above ....
    "surprise to many as Carsten was well established in Nong Khai and this seemed well out of character "..........anyway i fixed him up booking direct with the Airline.

    I doubt it, but i will ask the question anyway...Are Travel Agency's bonded in Thailand ??

    Commission for Aviation Regulation -Ireland

    Travel Trade - the Commission's Role

    What is travel trade licensing?

    All tour operators and travel agents trading in the State are required by law to be licensed and bonded to buy or sell overseas travel originating in the State to destinations outside the State or Northern Ireland.

    The Commission has produced a set of guidelines on the travel agents and tour operators licensing regime, which can be obtained by contacting the Commission directly.

    The Commission has created a web based application process which is used for both new applicants and those license holders renewing their license. If you are seeking a Travel Agent's/Tour Operator's license for the first time, please e-mail us on info@aviationreg.ie and we will contact you with instructions.

    What is the Commission's role?

    The Commission has four main roles under the broad heading of travel trade licensing:

    licensing travel agents and tour operators buying and selling overseas travel;
    administering a bonding scheme for travel agents and tour operators;
    processing claims for refunds and repatriation in the event of a travel agent or tour operator going out of business; and
    investigating instances of alleged illegal trading and, when necessary, prosecuting illegal traders.
    What does the Commission not do?

    The Commission's role does not encompass the following:

    licensing travel arrangments for domestic travel in Ireland;
    handling consumer complaints about travel agents, tour operators, hotels, luggage or airlines; or
    handling complaints about advertising (unless this is by an alleged unlicensed trader).

    Carsten Klaus Schittek, Hamburg, Germany:

    Carsten Klaus Schittek might have been strandet at his mother's place:

    Christa Schittek, Desenißstr. 36. 22083 Hamburg
    Phone +49 40 27 87 98 97

    If I remember correctly used his mother also work travel agent in Germany.
    She used to sponser her son's Thailand adventure at least at the beginning and some years onwards with large amounts of money.
    Only her support made the Tadadej Cafe and his travel agency business possible.

    He moved on to the following (business ???-) adress:

    Carsten established himself in Hamburg, Germany again as travel agent:

    Flug- und Hotel-Erperte, Reisebüro
    Klaus Schittek, Desenissstr 15. 22083 Hamburg, Germany
    phone +49 40 5597220 or fax +49 40 4904424

    Business registration at court of trading, Hamburg no. HRA 81818

    I doubt that Carsten Klaus Schittek is related with Klaus Schittek Fliesenhandel GmbH, Bremen.

    Another source if detailed information might be Nobbi or his wife Noi at N+N Minimarket & Restaurant, 374-75 Sirirat Rd, Tambon Nai Mueang
    Amphoe Mueang, Surin 32000, phone 081 66 24 137 and 044 518 391.
    Carsten was a pain all the time and one ot the reason for Nobbi and Noi for moving away from Nong Khai.

    I neither liked nor trusted Carsten Klaus Schitteck in any way.

    In the U.K. paying by credit card will insure you against this loss as the card company takes the hit.
