By SingSaver.com.sg

Singaporeans can save even more on hotel bookings with these Agoda credit card promotions. Use them for your next holiday!

First published on 14 July 2016. Credit card promotions updated as of 2 November 2016.

2016 is coming to its tail end, but there’s still plenty of time for you to finalise your December holiday. Take advantage of special deals by booking your trip early, and consider using a credit card to do so – there’s a chance you can get a discount on your hotel booking!

To help you with your planning, we’ve rounded up all the Agoda credit card promotions in Singapore.

1. UOB Credit Cards: Up to 8% Off Hotels in Japan and Korea

You’ll get 8% off selected hotels in Japan (Tokyo and Osaka) and Korea (Seoul, Busan and Jeju Island) if you book online, for a stay period until 31 Mar 2017. Take note that you have to make the booking within the month of November 2016 to take advantage of this promotion.

For hotel bookings anywhere else, you can get 7% off hotel bookings worldwide when you use a UOB Platinum card (which include PRVI Miles, YOLO, Lady’s Card, and Delight Card). All other UOB credit cards get an additional 5% off hotels. This promotion is only valid for bookings made up till 31 December 2016, though.

We recommend using the UOB YOLO Card to book your trip, as you can earn 3% rebate when you book on Agoda. It also comes with a generous 8% weekend dining rebate plus a number of 1-for-1 restaurant deals.

This can save you as much as S$60 per month when you eat out in Singapore and book your hotel!

Booking Period:

  • For 8% discount – Now until 30 Nov 2016
  • For up to 7% discount – Now until 31 Dec 2016

2. DBS/POSB Credit Cards: Up to 8% Off Hotels in Australia and New Zealand

If you’re looking to make a trip to the southern hemisphere, Agoda gives DBS and POSB cardholders 8% off hotel bookings for stays in Australia (Perth, Melbourne and Sydney) and New Zealand (Christchurch and Auckland). You’ll need to book your trip from now till 30 November 2016, but your stay period is valid up till 30 June 2017.

Looking for stays somewhere else? Agoda provides all DBS and POSB platinum cardholders (including the DBS Altitude and Black Card) with an additional 7% off hotels worldwide. Other DBS and POSB cards get 5% off hotels. The discounts are eligible for bookings made up till 31 December 2016, with stay period up to 30 June 2017.

Can’t decide which DBS credit card to use? Look no further than the DBS Visa Altitude card, for the simple reason that you earn 3 miles for every S$1 you spend on online travel bookings. This means that a S$2,500 booking at Agoda can earn you 7,500 miles!

It comes with a generous welcome offer of 15,000 miles the very first time you use the card. Once you spend S$10,000 within three months, you’ll be awarded another 27,000 bonus miles!
