Worldwide: Digital travel platform Agoda has launched long term stay feature for its users.

The group aims to both capitalise on the trend of long term stays, as well as boost occupancy for accommodation partners during slow periods. 

David Salamon, Agoda Homes director of product said: “With the growing popularity of Agoda Homes, we continue to identify ways to optimise occupancy for our accommodation partners, driving us to innovate new features that deliver additional revenue while also improving our travelers’ user experience.

He added: “Agoda is passionate about making it easier for travelers to find a great choice of accommodation for their needs. Whether they want a beach villa, a big apartment, or something in between, Agoda now enables travelers to book longer stays, without the hassle of stitching together multiple bookings.”

This new feature will allow users book stays between 30 and 90 days, at any of their available properties. The group hopes to benefit those on gap years, temporarily relocating for work, and older guests who may need unique hospitality solutions.

Agoda also believes that this will create a smaller turnover for properties to manage, allowing partners to focus more on service providing. This will be useful for the group's current base in Asia.

Agoda is not alone in expanding its capacity. Cheval has recently expanded to allow mobile check-in, and consultancy firm HoCoSo has launched a discussion platform to focus on the coronavirus.
