Booking.com vs Agoda for accommodation in Coron
One of the first things you’ll probably want to do is find a booking agent. For us, Booking.com has been our travel partner for years. This is why we recommend them all the time.
They are one of the best booking sites for hotels, not only in Coron but many other destinations worldwide. Their big range of hotels, resorts and hostels is probably the top reason we like them so much, if not their unbeatable prices. They are even willing to refund you any extra amount if you find a cheaper price elsewhere for the accommodation you book with them.
Booking.com also has a phone app so it’s very convenient to make reservations on the move. More to that, you can benefit greatly from their loyalty program the more you use them.
Another great site is Agoda which we also use. They offer a cashback service known as AgodaCash. This makes their prices low (sometimes even lower than Booking.com). With their easy-to-use website, you also get a wide range of hotels for your convenience.
I’ve included links to both Booking.com and Agoda in our list below so you can compare them and get the best prices.
