Agoda and TravelGay have entered into a partnership to increase focus on LGBT travellers amid a growing wave of support from destinations like Thailand to pursue this niche segment.
TravelGay is a gay travel, entertainment, and lifestyle guide for Europe, the US, and Asia’s most popular gay destinations.
Darren Burn, managing director of TravelGay, said: “We have expanded our site rapidly since acquiring the business just a few months ago and intend to work together with our accommodation partners in the coming months and years to further assist the LGBT community on their travels.”
“Central to everything we do at Agoda is the belief that we can help everyone to travel anywhere, so we are thrilled to partner with a company dedicated to ensuring that millions of LGBT travellers each year experience the same warm welcome and level of respect as all other travellers do,” said Aaron Moy, head of UX research and Agoda Colors (Agoda’s LGBT employee-resource group).
“Together with TravelGay, we hope to improve the planning and journey for LGBT travellrs in this region and beyond.”
