Deals at Matta Fair

For the many visitors who will attend Malaysia's largest travel fair, most would be looking for the best Matta Fair deals where travel agents will offer all kinds of travel packages and promotions.

They are usually offered for domestic, international and even special interest packages that range from Muslims, groups and even cruise packages.

Matta Fair Deals

The Matta Fair Deals are usually found from all the participating travel agents where each tour company will be offering various promotions.

Therefore, it is always recommended that you have a destination in mind and then head there to check out what is being offered.

Many times, the consumer who visit Malaysia's largest travel fair will simply have a change of mind when they are there. All because other packages are more worth it compared to the one that you are looking for. 

For example, if you are planning to look for a Bandung Package at Matta Fair, you may encounter many tour companies selling Bali packages which is much more worth it, compared to the Bandung one. Some consumers will even buy both packages for the sake of the promotion.

Usually, the Matta Fair Deals are offered for popular destinations locally and internationally, where the popular places would be Bali, Bangkok, Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Korea, and Japan for international travel.

And for local destinations, popular places like Legoland, Penang, Langkawi, Sabah, and Sarawak are the favorite choices.

For the Matta Fair, the Malaysian Ringgit is fared very low compared to the US Dollar therefore, many will be choosing travel destinations around the region versus far places.

Airline Tickets Matta Fair

Matta Fair Airline Deals

Airlines always take advantage of the Matta Fair by offering special promotions and deals which are valid when bought during the travel fair.

Players like Malaysia Airlines, AirAsia, Malindo and Firefly will have their special flight ticket promotions running throughout the fair. Most of the time, it is done from their booths at the fair and sometimes they run it on their website. 

Even international airlines like Etihad, Emirates, Qatar Airways and British Airways will be active by offering cheap flight tickets to international destinations.

But these kinds of promotions will be done through the travel agents who sell flight tickets and also travel packages and not the airlines who are not seen there.

So, during each fair, you should take note of which airline is offering the best deal for all airline tickets.

Matta Fair Domestic Deals

Domestic destinations will be one of the most popular sellers during the Matta Fair, simply because a majority of the consumers will be traveling locally, especially during the long school holidays or long weekends here in Malaysia.

The domestic deals can be found at Hall 3 where all the local and domestic travel packages are being sold. 

Most of the time, the Matta Fair domestic deals will not include transportation and will be ground only, this means you buy the package and find your own way there.

However, flights can be included in your package for convenience, but then the price of the package goes up.

So, destinations like Langkawi, Sarawak, and Sabah would sometimes include flights, but many locals prefer to book their own flight tickets based on the special promotions offered by the airlines.

Matta Fair Nature Package Deals

Apart from the general city and town packages being sold, some consumers visit the fair to look for specific nature packages.

Some agents are seen selling Taman Negara Tour Packages, and various other tours to Sarawak and Sabah.

Many years ago, they were not so popular, but in the last five years or so, outdoor and nature packages have become popular among the local travelers in Malaysia. 

International Hall Matta Fair

Matta Fair Cruise Deals

With Star Cruise being the leader for cruise packages, there will be a lot of offers on this as many are now looking for cruise packages that take them to multiple countries on one trip.

However, there are also other cruise companies at the Matta Fair which are also offering promotions, and they include international cruise packages that range from seven to thirty days.

Companies like Royal Caribbean, Norwegian Cruise, and Costa Cruise are the international players who offer these luxury packages and are found in the international hall. 

Muslim Package Matta Fair

Matta Fair Muslim Deals

Muslim travel deals are one of the hottest packages being sold at the Matta Fair where many Malaysians are traveling to new destinations based on these specialized Muslim packages.

Among the most popular are the Muslim travel packages to Japan as the country has been working very hard to comply with the Halal certifications for selected restaurants and also opening prayer rooms in various places.

Other Halal destinations include China, Europe, Australia, Indochina, Korea, Japan, the Americas, and even Africa.

However, there are reputable travel agents that offer these special packages and it is recommended that you speak to them directly to find out more about the facilities, food and so on.

At the Matta Fair, you will surely come across many travel agents selling Muslim Travel Deals.

Matta Fair Honeymoon Deals

A more selective travel deal to look for, there are travel agents that specialize in providing honeymoon packages at Matta Fair.

However, for those really interested, you need to sit down with the agents and discuss what is included in these packages.

Usually, Bali and Maldives are one of the top destinations for honeymooners but lately, AirAsia X has opened up a new route to Mauritius and this is one of the new honeymoon destinations to look out for.

Another popular honeymoon or anniversary package at the Matta Fair is buying one of the romantic cruise packages.

Unless you are the type that wants something very special, like buying a honeymoon package to the Bahamas, you need to discuss this with the outbound travel agents as they can do a tailor-made tour package for you.

Matta Fair Shopping Package Deals

A more targeted kind of travel is the shopping travel packages, where consumers book shopping trips to other countries, namely Bangkok, China or Indonesia.

These are the common destinations for those wanting to buy for themselves or buy for their business. A number of online businesses or small retail vendors are looking at destinations like China for shopping travel packages.

Indonesia is also high on the list as many Malaysians are heading to Bandung or even places for shopping in Jogjakarta as there are many interesting and new products being offered at these places.

But the main market is no other than China, namely Guangzhou and Yiwu where there are special shopping travel packages being offered by smaller agents which include translators and so on.

September Matta Fair

Among all the deals that will be offered at the Matta Fair, you need to carefully decide on which package suits you or your family.

Do not buy based on because it is cheap, because sometimes, cheap does not mean good and many have learned the hard way.

So, always check before buying. Over the years, I have done many articles on the Matta Fair and also on the Matta Fair Promotion Packages as it provides consumer information for those who are unsure about this.


Every year, the Matta Fair is held twice on a large scale in Kuala Lumpur, once at the beginning of the year, and one more in September. Both travel fairs target the holiday travel and will see over 100,000 visitors to each of the fairs.

If you have missed the first one, there is always the second on to target for your year-end holidays, and at both fairs, there are always great deals waiting to be bought. 

For the best Matta Fair deals, you need to attend the travel fair to check the offers out, and if all works out well, you will be getting a fantastic bargain for your next vacation or trip. Who knows, you may even walk away with two or three packages.

Hello Jana, thanks for the question on the Matta Fair Package Deals. Well, usually the promotions are offered at the fair itself, but in some cases, there are a few travel agents that also offer the promotion packages on their websites. And the packages need to be bought during the same time as the Matta Fair too. You need to check the different travel agents for this. Hope this provides you with the information needed.
