Agoda.com may not be a common household name when someone is looking to a book a hotel room on the Internet. If you’ve never heard of them you’re not alone. What you’ve most likely have heard of is Priceline.com, especially if you’re from the United States.
Agoda.com is actually a child company of Priceline.com, an extremely popular travel agency offering deals on hotels, plane tickets or anything else you need to reserve for a vacation.
All they do is basically focus on getting the best rates for anyone shopping for discounted hotel deals and rates all over the world.
The Agoda site is available in many languages, not just English – for example you can find Agoda in German, French, Japanese, Swedish, Thai .. and many more, reflecting the worldwide appeal of Agoda. Not just Thailand, not just Asia, but Worldwide. The site is very easy to use, easy to navigate, it’s easy to find rates, easy to make bookings. I’d suggest checking Agoda for your trip to Phuket and Thailand.
Agoda Reward Program
Agoda offers a reward program. From your first booking you get reward points worth around 5% of the room price. You can use these points to reduce the price of the room you are booking, or you can let the points mount up after several bookings and use them to get even bigger savings, or even free rooms! You decide. A friend here in Phuket said he ended up with a free room on his last trip to Kuala Lumpur, having saved up his reward points. You can earn extra points by contributing a hotel review (good or bad!) after your stay.
There’s a new iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch hotel booking app out for business travellers, which will be especially useful if you’re looking to book last-minute hotels on the road.
