Agoda launched a new feature, “Mix and Save”, for extra budget-conscious travelers, allowing customers to save up to 50 percent in some instances, by booking the cheapest combination of available rooms within the same hotel.
Leveraging Agoda’s technology and strong relationships with accommodation partners around the world, the new feature gives customers the option to split their reservation into multiple bookings and helps them to maximize savings when they search between 2 to 14 nights stay at any of Agoda’s two million properties worldwide.
“Our customers inspire us to innovate. We’ve seen them ‘mix and save’ through trial and error, where they would split their stay and stack different room deals to get the best overall price, which can be cumbersome and time-consuming. Traditionally OTAs have made the assumption that guests wouldn’t change rooms, but our tests have shown that, for the right savings and low price, there are travelers who will be flexible and change rooms during their stay to get a better deal. We are excited to be the first major global online travel agent to make these ‘hacker-rates’ available. Mix and Save helps partners to optimize inventory, and reflects our commitment to offering Agoda customers the best possible price.” said Omri Morgenshtern, Chief Operating Officer, Agoda.
Currently available on desktop, Agoda is looking to enhance the offering in the coming months, allowing users to enjoy Mix and Save deals on mobile, and making it more seamless for travelers by combining the split bookings in a single reservation.
