Agoda lists long-term options
Agoda, Booking Holdings’ Asia Headquartered digital travel platform, now lists properties for stays of more than 30 days to capitalise on the growing trend of using vacation rentals for long-term stays. Available on Agoda Homes and hotels, the latest long term stay feature enables travellers to search dates ranging 30 to 90 days.
Agoda is continuously improving its platform offerings to suit their travellers’ changing needs. With more people looking for flexible, long-term accommodation for various reasons such as traveling, relocation or accepting overseas assignments, the new long term stay feature from Agoda allows accommodation partners to benefit from this trend, especially during low travel season by helping maximise occupancy, and have fewer guest turnover to manage.
"With the growing popularity of Agoda Homes, we continue to identify ways to optimise occupancy for our accommodation partners, driving us to innovate new features that deliver additional revenue while also improving our travellers’ user experience,” says David Salamon, Director of Product for Agoda Homes. “We have seen an increased number of travellers stitching their trips together and booking the same property multiple times over an extended period. This latest feature will make it hassle-free for travellers to book longer term accommodation. Through user research and vigorous testing on our platform, we know that travellers and accommodation partners want a seamless and intuitive platform for long term bookings. We will continuously test and improve, and look forward as it is being rolled out to the other types of properties on our platform. We will be rolling it out soon on our mobile app.”
