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.

|5% off London hotel bookings||LONDON_18||16 Oct 2018|
