About Agoda

Less Hassle, More Travel

Our mission at Agoda is to make affordable travel accessible to more people, and to deliver affordable and enjoyable travel experiences that are seamless from end to end. By seamless, we mean hassle-free from the moment you start planning your trip.

To get to our goal, we’ve spent the last 16 years building agoda.com and the Agoda app to make searching and booking travel as easy and stress-free as it ought to be.

To date, we’ve accrued millions of registered customers, and with a truly global team of more than 4,000 people in 25 markets, we’re considered one of Asia’s leading tech companies.
