Agoda promo codes and credit card discounts

Get your hands on the latest Agoda promotion codes and credit card discounts with OCBC, UOB, AMEX and more. With this, you can enjoy greater savings for your hotel bookings worldwide.

Value-conscious travellers are always on the lookout for promotions and ways to stretch every dollar. When it comes to hotel bookings, the preferred platform to book is typically an online travel agency (OTA) or a hotel booking site, such as Agoda, rather than directly on the hotel’s website.

That’s because websites like Agoda allow travellers to compare a comprehensive range of properties from luxurious villas and hotels to wallet-friendly hostels, and then make a seamless booking with a few convenient clicks. On top of that, such booking platforms sometimes dangle bait for savings, be it through credit card promotions or direct discounts with Agoda promotion codes.

To get the best deal, however, it’s best to shop around and check the prices listed on various platforms. To make things easier for you, compare all the prices available out there through Skyscanner’s hotel search. Then, look up the discounts available for the credit cards that you own and do the maths.

How to find the best Agoda deals on Skyscanner

What’s great about Skyscanner is that we compare the world’s hotel suppliers – not just Agoda but also Booking.com, Hotels.com and Expedia – to find you the best deal. On top of that, you can view the price listed on the hotel’s official website to determine if it’s better to book directly or through OTAs.

Should you choose the latter, you can avail of the promo codes and credit card promotions offered by the booking platforms as Skyscanner will redirect you to the travel agent. You can also earn the Agoda points which are worth 4-7% of your booking.

Clearly, you have nothing to lose but more to win if you download the Skyscanner app.

For every single hotel that you’re eyeing, you can get a streamlined view of the various prices available out there. You can utilise filters to narrow down your search based on prices or star ratings. Then, you’re able to sort the results based on guest ratings, distance to the city centre, prices, or simply what we consider the “best” based on multiple metrics.

Here are some destinations to get you started:

Agoda promo codes

Agoda rolls out fresh promotion codes frequently. The promo codes typically expire within a week or two, so it’s best to check on the Agoda website before your hotel booking to see if you can score yourself a sweet deal. Then, use Skyscanner to check the prices listed on other OTAs – just in case your desired accommodation is cheaper elsewhere, even after utilising the promo codes.

Here are the Agoda promo codes valid as of 24 May 2019:
