Jump to last reply

I used Agoda for a few of my Japan 2012 hotel bookings and was happy with the rates and rooms we booked. The process was straightforward, I liked how clear the room types and rates were, and the free cancellation on many room types was a big bonus.

I'm booking for another trip now, and trying to work out which currency it's best to pay in to avoid Agoda doing the currency conversion rather than my bank.

So far I've paid in US dollars, as I had it in my head they were a US-owned business and that the native currency, to them, would therefore be US$.

Is that right? I can't seem to figure out how to check.

I am booking for Japan and can easily work out how to pay in Japanese Yen, US Dollars or GBP Sterling (my own currency) but finding which currency Agoda natively work in is not proving so easy.

Can anyone help?
