Nobody I know actually makes their travel bookings via airline or hotel websites anymore. Everyone does it through travel aggregators because it’s simply the easiest and fastest way to compare the cheapest flight and accommodation prices. Agoda is one of these popular “travel search engines”, and lucky for us, they’ve tie-ups with almost all the banks in Singapore. Here’s a helpful list of all the current and best Agoda promo codes and credit card promotions.


Best Agoda Promo Codes 2018

Most of Agoda’s promotions are with credit cards, but they do release promo codes from time to time. These promo codes are spontaneous and have very short validity periods – typically 1 to 2 weeks – so the best thing to do is just to check back from time to time.

Here’s what is available (as of 15 Oct 2018):

All the credit card promotions are for hotel bookings – no flights – and for those, DBS/POSB cardholders are entitled to the highest “discount” available. You can get 12% off, but it’s not a direct discount. It’s actually for your next booking, because you will receive 12% cashback in an Agoda gift card.

                I’m a 90s millennial who’s starting to realise that #adulting is more expensive than it seems on Instagram. When I’m not writing for MoneySmart, I’m usually playing with drain-dwelling stray cats or shopping at Sephora.
