New long term stay feature on Agoda Homes and Hotels

Agoda

Eager to capitalise on the growing trend of using vacation rentals for long term stays, Agoda now lists properties for stays of more than 30 days.

The new long term stay feature is available on Agoda Homes and Hotels and allows travellers to search dates ranging from 30 to 90 days.

The online travel agency is dedicated to refining its popular platform to suit its clients’ ever-changing needs. More travellers are now seeking flexible, long-term accommodation when travelling, relocating or accepting overseas assignments. Agoda’s game-changing long term stay feature from Agoda will now grant accommodation partners the opportunity to benefit from this trend, especially during low travel seasons, by helping to maximise occupancy.

Director of product, Agoda Homes, David Salamon declared: “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 travelers’ user experience.”

Salamon continued: “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.”

Salamon explained that Agoda will continue to test and improve the new feature, and will be introducing it to its mobile app soon.
