If you are not aware, Agoda’s main headquarter is located in Singapore, a tiny little dot on the map in Asia.
We are sure Agoda rings a bell to many because this is one of the easiest, fastest and user-friendly site for people to pick their preferred choice of accommodations when it comes to travelling for business purposes, personal holiday or even a cosy short staycation with friends, families, relatives and even loved ones. Agoda offered wide range of accommodations ranging from apartments, resorts, villas and hotels. What kind of choice you prefer, you name it, they would certainly have it.

One of the reward program Agoda implemented was the Agoda gift cards where customers will need to make a booking and can easily earn the gift card. Hence, the more number of times a person books on Agoda, the larger the gift card he/she will receive for a booking. Isn’t it easy? With the gift card, the person can redeem any amount as long as the booking is eligible and available. Another way the person can earn a referral gift card is through referral of a friend. Once a friend clicks on the link received on their email generated by the sender in the “refer a friend tab” in their account, the sender can receive the same referral credits as them once they make a successful booking with Agoda. After 1 week when the friend checked out of the accommodation, the person who referred his/her friend can have the referral gift card. However, please be minded to redeem the gift card within 90 days from the date of issuance.
Not only that, Agoda introduced “PointsMAX” program for customers to earn miles or points as they make bookings. They have many airlines for customers to select their preferred loyalty programs. Their preferred choice is Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer. Personally, this is worth it especially if you are travelling very often or a travel lover. The best part is, you can earn as you travel! Another rewards part worth mentioning about Agoda is their reward points system where customers can earn points after each booking and being categorised as premier or elite status. For a minimum of 12,500 redeemed points, customers can book a standard reservation where the return value amounted to $25. Also, they can keep track of their reward points once logged into their account under the “my rewards” tab.
During certain periods, Agoda offers great discounts as much as 50% and more depending on the room type, duration, location, promotion period. So, it is advisable to log in often to check out the discounts or promotions offered. Sometimes, Agoda indicates the deal of the day of the accommodation stating the discounted percentage with the promotion period, so do not miss out on this! With this promotion, customers can save quite a bit yet able to book their preferred accommodation at an affordable cost!
If customers are spoilt for choices on their choice of accommodation, there is a star rating or guest reviews on the top right-hand corner of each room that can be referred to so that it helps narrow down their choices. Agoda is one of the considerable and safe choice for online booking of accommodation due to their accessible feedback channels should customers have any enquiries or questions.
