|Description||online hotel reservation service|
Agoda is an online hotel reservation service, working with more than 168,000 hotels and providing its services in 37 different languages. The company was established in 2005 by two veterans of the online travel business living in South East Asia. In 2007, agoda was acquired by the Priceline.com Incorporated global group of Internet travel companies (Nasdaq: PCLN). The company is still run today by one of its co-founders, CEO Robert Rosenstein.
Agoda employs more than 800 travel professionals of all nationalities, in 22 locations around the world. There are major operations in Singapore, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong with an additional presence in other cities across Asia, the Middle East and Australia. Dedicated market managers maintain close relationships with agoda hotel partners in Europe and the United States.
Agoda keeps a competitive edge by offering a best price guarantee and combining local knowledge with world-class technology to provide travelers with the best hotel deals on the web. Agoda also gives its customers Rewards Points for every booking made, worth 4-7% of the price of that booking. Rewards Points are redeemable at any ‘agoda Special Rate’ property and can be used to discount future bookings or saved up to pay for entire hotel stays.
In addition to a broad selection of accommodations, agoda customers can take advantage of its actual traveler reviews. Reviews and tips posted to the agoda site are 100% authentic and submitted only after customers have completed their hotel stay.
