Agoda was co-founded in Singapore in 2005 by school friends Michael Kenny and Robert Rosenstein. Prior to Agoda, Michael Kenny started two other hotel booking websites, PlanetHoliday.com and PrecisionReservations.com, but combined companies, launching Agoda.com in 2005.
In 2007, Agoda was acquired by Booking Holdings (formerly The Priceline Group). After several iterations of the website, Agoda launched iOS and Android mobile apps for booking hotels in July 2011.
Agoda offers a “Book Without a Credit Card” option for hotels in Indonesia and Philippines, and is the first online digital travel booking platform to enable Australians to book and pay for their holiday accommodation via interest-free installments.
In 2018, Agoda launched airport transfers on its website, followed by flight booking in 2019. Agoda’s bookings are made via its website and mobile app which are available in 38 languages. As of June 2021, Agoda lists 2.5 million properties worldwide, including private holiday home rentals.
