agoda.com offers up to 20% discount on Aussie Easter getaways

SINGAPORE (March 14, 2012)

agoda.com, a leading hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq: PCLN), today announced a selection of Sydney hotel deals that make a budget trip Down Under easier than ever.

New low-cost carrier routes between Asia and Australia make it cheaper than ever to go Down Under. The long-haul flight from Asia's major air hubs to Sydney International Airport can now be made via a selection of airlines – both on flagship carriers and low-cost airlines – with the competition between carriers resulting in competitive prices for travelers.

With agoda.com's special deals on Australian hotels, travelers now have the opportunity to really save on an Aussie holiday. Travelers visiting in autumn (March to May) can maximize savings by avoiding peak summer time rates while still enjoying great weather. Autumn in Sydney is very mild, with sunny temperate days and cool evenings. The days aren't as hot and the sun not as strong as in the summertime, but travelers will discover it's still warm enough for quality time outdoors.

Easter in Australia is an especially popular time for family holidays. Good Friday and Easter Monday are both national holidays, so local families often take extended weekend breaks to the beach or countryside. Over Easter, international visitors to Australia can enjoy locally-made confectionary as Easter Eggs, hot cross buns and chocolate in all its forms go on sale everywhere.

In Sydney, the Royal Easter Show takes place from April 5 to 18, showcasing agricultural achievements across a range of fields. Events such as wood-chopping competitions and merino wool judging take place in a fun carnival atmosphere with rides, motocross exhibitions, rodeo shows and nightly fireworks. The Royal Easter Show is an extremely popular outing for families – parents can enjoy fresh Australian-made gourmet food and wine while city kids get to meet baby farm animals, enjoy rides and take home showbags of chocolates and sweets.
