The new feature allows customers to split their reservation into multiple bookings, helping them maximize savings when they search for a two to 14 nights’ stay at any of Agoda’s two million properties worldwide.Agoda chief operating officer Omri Morgenshtern said: “Our customers inspire us to innovate. We’ve seen them ‘mix and save’ through trial and error, where they would split their stay and stack different room deals to get the best overall price, which can be cumbersome and time-consuming. Traditionally OTAs have made the assumption that guests wouldn’t change rooms, but our tests have shown that, for the right savings and low price, there are travellers who will be flexible and change rooms during their stay to get a better deal. We are excited to be the first major global online travel agent to make these ‘hacker-rates’ available.”
Currently available on desktops, Agoda is looking to make Mix and Save available on mobile devices.
