Agoda has launched a beta version of its day use feature across hotels in South Korea, giving guests the option of booking a room for just a few hours.
Currently available at 7,000 hotels across South Korea, the new feature provides guests who do not require a full night’s stay with more flexible booking options, while helping hoteliers maximise room occupancy.
To book a day use room, Agoda users can start by searching for any destination in South Korea on the Agoda mobile app, select the “day use” tab, enter the check-in date, and browse a wide range of properties across the country, including in cities such as Seoul, Jeju Island, Busan, Daegu and Incheon.
Day use rates are available for two- to ten-hour blocks, depending on the hotel’s availability. Users can select from available check-in timeslots before 23.00.
South Korean users can look forward to a full roll-out of the day use feature in the next few weeks. Agoda said that it will work with accommodation partners to increase the selection of day use rooms, as well as look to expand the day use offering in other destinations in the coming months.
