Hi Guys This is ONLY aimed at the BMs who like to use Agoda, if you do not its all cool - no need to go off tack. Non relevant posts will be removed or it will turn into a mess. Sadly, it has come to our attention that Agoda MAY be skimming our bookings made through PA, or possibly the links are just not working properly - so If you DO book a hotel via Agoda, and I am not suggesting you should not, could you let me know either in this thread or ideally by PM. Your help will be HUGELY appreciated. Many thanks for your help.
So I booked the August Suites two days ago for 13 days in April. I payed at the time for £366. However the money has been sitting in my bank account as pending. Then today Agoda got in touch to day that the booking was revoked by the hotel as they where full. Credit to Agoda they apologied and said that the hotel is offering the March hotel as an alternative. I refused this and asked for the April’s suites,however it was also full. This is were the customer service was excellent. They gave me a deal on the Nova Gold Hotel with a 15% discount. So I got a deluxe King for £333 for the 13 nights. Read some reviews on here and I more than happy. Yeah the location is 5 minute walk to 2nd road and 15 minutes to Pattaya Klang. However I am in no rush in the mornings this trip as not planning to golf every other morning from LK. Will just use the motorbike taxi or the buggy when available. Also it’s good to see another area of Pattaya as I’m normally always located in the LK area. Anyway just a quick story of being let down and then being given top customer service.
Guys This thread is specifically aimed at those of you who use Agoda already although if it encourages others to use them that is great. If you are NOT a fan of Agoda that is fine, we accept they are not for everyone. Most of you are aware that if you book a hotel, anywhere in the world, using our Agoda links the forum is paid a commission (approx 3% of net booking). In the past these commissions paid a large portion of our hosting fees. However in recent months several things have changed - notably. 1. Agoda have removed the cookie. This means that we no longer receive commission for people who clicked, then return later to book. In this case the commission goes 100% to Agoda themselves. 2. Agoda have removed the commission paid on repeat visitors. Previously if you booked via an Addicts link we would retain the customer. This is no longer the case. In short, if you use Agoda and are happy for PA to receive the commission, we need you to always click a link AGAIN to make the booking. Many many thanks to those members who support us and use them!
