Money is HARD to earn, every RM1 counts.
Now, say out loud with me "THANK YOU AGODA!"
What's the real story?
MilkADeal gets paid a commission from Agoda when you book your hotel through our "Shop Now" link.
We will then return the commission back to you as cashback.
But wait, what's the catch you ask?
There are two things you will need to be aware of:
Step 1: Click on the "Shop Now" button next to the Agoda logo above
Step 2: Wait to be redirected to Agoda Malaysia
Step 3: Search for the country / city / location / hotel which you would like to book, as well as the check-in and check-out dates
Step 4: When you are done selecting a beautiful accommodation, just book it
Step 5: Complete your payment. You will receive your cashback notification email within two days.
It is one of the easiest to use online hotel booking platform on the internet. It was founded in Thailand before the turn of the century and has since been acquired by The Priceline Group. It is particularly popular with Asian tourists, and it prides on being one of the top Online Travel Agencies based in Asia.
Agoda's award-winning website is super fast and easy to use. Once booked, you will get instant confirmation. There is a wide selection of accommodation and room types available to be booked. The website is available in 38 different languages and has various types of accommodations in its offerings, from hotels and b&bs to beach resorts, rest houses, and homestays.
The very first thing you should do when visiting Agoda's website is to turn on PointsMAX. (Well it should be on by default)
For our context as Malaysians, the three big ones that you should consider are Malaysia Airlines Enrich, AirAsia BIG, and Asia Miles (think Cathay Pacific flights). You can only select one so make sure you choose the correct loyalty programs. How it works is that on top of getting great deals, you can also earn loyalty points for each booking you made. Your points or miles will be credited after you stay.
One little birdy informed us that his golden rule when researching on accommodations:
If it is a 4-star hotel & below, Agoda will almost always have the best rates. If it is a 5-star hotel, check the hotel's website directly first and compare the prices to see who has the best rates.
On top of PointsMAX, for each booking you make, by default you can get Agoda Rewards Points. What's the use of the Rewards Points you ask? Before answering that, there are actually 2 levels of membership: Premier and Elite. You will need to accumulate 75,000 Rewards Points per year to maintain your Elite status (and points expire annually).
You can use the Rewards Points in exchange for a cash discount. The discount starts from 12,500 Point to USD25.
Just remember to check if you have unused Rewards as they expire at the end of the year.
Instead of the usual email exchanges, you could call up a local Malaysian number to speak to one of their friendly customer service representatives. No need for long distance international phone calls.
At the end of your stay, Agoda would always ask for your feedback on your accommodation. You can submit reviews which will contribute to Agoda's page of the hotel. We find that this plays a crucial part when deciding which hotel to take up. Overall, most hotels range that people book ranges between a score of 6-8 points so depending on your budget, this is the next big thing to consider when booking hotels.
Needless to say, hotels which are priced quite reasonably and have a rating of 8 and above are always booked out.
The idea behind Cashback is to be able to let travelers get additional savings through cashback. For each booking made through MilkADeal, we receive a commission. We can then pass these commission back to you so that you can save more.
