Shopee now offers seamless hotel bookings in partnership with Agoda and Booking.com
Users can enjoy added savings of up to 10% on hotel and flight bookings on Shopee this 11.11 Big Sale
As travel starts to rebound, Shopee is now offering hotel bookings in partnership with global digital travel platforms Agoda and Booking.com. Through this exclusive partnership, Shopee users will now be able to access one of the largest online inventories of hotels, resorts, homes and apartments supplied by Agoda and Booking.com
This new service offering is timely in meeting the needs of consumers, as domestic travel re-opens in Malaysia, and more people are planning holidays amid the year-end seasons. Agoda’s search data in September revealed that searches for domestic stays have risen by over 57% compared to May this year. There has also been an increase of 37% more users in Southeast Asia searching for international destinations. Users can enjoy greater savings and exclusive travel deals by booking directly on Shopee. This partnership will also help to increase the reach and visibility of hotel partners to boost domestic and international tourism
Apart from Malaysia, the partnership spans across other markets: Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan, Indonesia, Vietnam and the Philippines. Users across the region can seamlessly search, book and get instant confirmation for more than one million properties worldwide, all through the Shopee app.
Terence Pang, Chief Operating Officer at Shopee, said, “We are pleased to partner with leading travel platforms, Agoda and Booking.com to launch this new hotel booking service, which aims to provide our users with easy access to a wider variety of travel products and experiences. We also look forward to supporting the recovery of local travel and related tourism industries by promoting fun staycation ideas together with hotel partners. We invite everyone to travel safely and earn greater savings by booking their next holiday through Shopee.”
As users browse for accommodations, they will also be able to discover top landmarks near their chosen hotels, which can help them to plan travel itineraries that explore local enclaves, neighborhoods and attractions.
Damien Pfirsch, Chief Commercial Officer, at Agoda, said, “Travelers know and trust Agoda and Booking.com to help make travel easier, because we are passionate about using our technology to connect people with the widest choice and greatest value deals, whether they are in Asia or across the world. This partnership with Shopee, the first with a regional e-commerce partner, will conveniently bring these great deals to Shopee customers, on a platform they are familiar with. At the same time, we can better support our hotel partners and tourism operators by connecting them to the biggest online community of shoppers in Southeast Asia. Such partnerships will help accelerate the recovery of the domestic and global travel and tourism industry in the long term.”
