Booking.com vs Agoda for accommodation in Nagarkot
When looking for accommodation in Nagarkot, Booking.com will give you the biggest range of options - hotels, hostels, B&Bs, resorts, you name it. Apart from Nagarkot, it’s also great when travelling in other parts of Nepal and in different continents around the world.
We’ve used Booking.com many times during our own travels in various parts of the world and there are many reasons why we like them so much. Such as ...
They offer the best prices in the market. Go ahead and check the website. And if you do find a cheaper price elsewhere, just inform Booking.com and they’ll match it.
Their mobile app is great. You can make bookings whenever and wherever you are.
They have a loyalty program where they give travel rewards to travellers who use their website often. You get to become a Genius member and gain access to great perks and up to 10% discounts off selected bookings.
At the same time, Agoda is my second favourite booking site, because …
Their site is very modern and sleek and fun to use.
They have a massive range of properties and prices almost as competitive as those on Booking.com.
Their personal recommendations tool, based off past bookings, makes finding great deals a lot easier.
AgodaCash gives you cashback on certain properties, making them even cheaper than on Booking.com.
To find the best deal, I recommend checking your chosen property on both Agoda and Booking.com before booking. To help you out, I’ve provided all necessary links below (you’re welcome!).
