Agoda helps Filipinos without credit cards to travel

No credit card? No worries. Agoda’s new payment solutions enable Filipinos to travel more and have access to Agoda’s great prices.

Agoda, one of the world’s fastest growing global digital travel platforms has introduced two payment options – “Book without a credit card”, which allows payment at the hotels, and “Counter Payment”, which allows payment at bill payment centers, making it possible for Filipinos to instant book accommodation on Agoda without a credit card.

The “Book without a credit card” is now available in more than 1000 hotels across the Philippines. Travelers quickly and easily identify properties that offer this payment method with a “Book without a credit card” badge on the search page, or easily use Agoda’s search filter to find these properties on the Agoda platform on desktop and mobile. Travelers then complete the payment at the hotel upon check-in.

The second new payment option “Counter payment” is available on all Agoda domestic properties and allows travelers to pay at bill payment centers. Travelers don’t need to filter, simply select “Counter Payment” as a payment method when completing the booking form. The “Counter payment” is available at BDO, BPI, Bayad Center, and LBC, with additional partnerships coming soon.
