Agoda has standardized the booking process immensely and made just about every hotel out there much more accessible to the masses.

And of course everyone loves the lower room rates on, even lower than when the room is booked the actual hotel website itself. How can that be?

Firstly, being a sizable industry player has a lot of clout and cash so they can book rooms for their purpose at very low rates. The hotels that participate are happy to sell Agoda a number of rooms, because they know they still have the bulk of their room available to sell to their guests themselves, either on their site or direct lobby bookings by so-called walk-ins.
