Agoda is one of the fastest-growing online hotel platforms worldwide, listing hundreds of thousands of hotels and providing services in 38 different languages.
The company was established in 2005 by two veterans of the online travel business and is today headed by co-founder and CEO of Agoda Mr. Robert Rosenstein. In 2007, Agoda was acquired by The Priceline Group, the largest seller of rooms online. The Priceline Group is publicly traded on NASDAQ (Nasdaq: PCLN) and is a part of the S&P 500.
Agoda employs more than 2,500 travel professionals, representing more than 20 countries. There are major operations in Singapore, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Tokyo, Sydney, Hong Kong, and Budapest, with an additional presence in major cities across Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Europe, and the Americas. Dedicated market managers maintain close relationships with Agoda hotel partners around the globe, creating special promotions and marketing programs to help Agoda offer some of the best deals on the Internet. This competitive edge is backed up by a best-price guarantee.
Agoda’s award-winning website is fast, easy to use, and employs world-class technology. We offer instant confirmation for every one of our hundreds of thousands of listed hotels, and, unlike some websites, we don’t make customers wait for confirmation from the hotel. In addition to a wide selection of accommodation and room types, Agoda’s hotel reviews are 100 per cent authentic. Submitted by customers after they have completed their hotel stay, we have over 10 million verified hotel reviews.
Customers can also download our mobile apps for iOS and Android which put the full functionality of the Agoda website in your pocket. Search, decide, book, and save on hundreds of thousands of properties with just a few taps.
Agoda focuses solely on hotel bookings. So, in addition to having millions of loyal customers, we have thousands of partners around the world, such as package tour operators, airlines, and credit card companies, who use Agoda to manage their hotel bookings.
At Agoda we take pride in being accountable, reachable and connected. We offer customers the widest set of hotel options and always strive to offer the most competitive price. By doing this, we hope to make travel more affordable, accessible, and enjoyable to customers around the world.
