We've all heard about Agoda.com by now. This aggregate site enables users to book any accommodation they like, anywhere in the world and at what appear to be some of the lowest available rates. So how does Agoda.com manage to do this? Is Agoda.com legitimate? Is there a catch?
Well, fortunately Agoda.com is completely legitimate and there isn't even a catch. These aggregate portals as they're known, are pretty much a win-win-win hospitality solution for all parties concerned in the industry, customers, accommodations and Agoda itself.
Agoda.com earns a modest commission for each booking made on their site and from the site on down, users and accommodation parties gain as well.
In so doing, Agoda.com has shaken up the travel industry, disrupted it if you will, with Agoda.com, their successful online booking platform. Everybody benefits.
With Agoda.com, travelers can more easily find a villa, a cottage, a resort and a hotel of choice. And they don't have to digest endless individual hotel sites that each have their own style and their own room rate structure, or their own language. Agoda has standardized the booking process immensely and made just about every hotel out there much more accessible to the masses.
And of course everyone loves the lower room rates on Agoda.com, even lower than when the room is booked the actual hotel website itself. How can that be?
Firstly, Agoda.com has a lot of clout and cash so they can book rooms for their purpose at very low rates. The hotels that participate are quite happy to sell Agoda a number of rooms, because they know they still have the bulk of their room available to sell to their guests themselves, either on their site or to walk-ins.
The other reason Agoda can swing a very low day rate from the hotels in question is because the hotels are happy that Agoda takes care of much of the room administration. Not only that, Agoda also invests a great deal of funds on marketing, ensuring the hotels on their site get plenty of publicity.
Of course, the hotels are also quite comfortable with any outstanding amounts, as they know that Agoda is an upstanding player.
In essence, even though the hotels may not make as much per room per night from Agoda.com as a regular customer, their Agoda.com-related revenues are quite welcome, given the lower hotel input required, before and after the hotel stay. Basically, rooms sold to Agoda.com involve less workload. So slightly less profit is fine. Meanwhile, since Agoda's forte is their input, their content to earn commission.
Agoda.com's greatest advantage is their lower room rate. That said, right behind this is the way they enable users to filter their selection process. Choosing a room with Agoda.com is way easier than booking a room on a proprietary website.
Let's also not forget the wealth of hotel reviews. Room size, cleanliness, service level, distance to the beach, everything is discussed in detail, allowing guests-to-be to zero in on exactly the room they have in mind. There is probably no more effective way to learn about a hotel or resort that by have a treasure trove of earlier guests' feedback.
Best of all, users can also assess instantly if a hotel is on the virge of being fully booked. After all, the number of still available rooms is always listed on Agoda.com. Lastly, Agoda.com features a Best Price Guarantee and a Book-now-Pay-later policy. What's not to like about that? No wonder Agoda.com's bookings have been on a stratospheric trajectory/
