ANOTHER online travel accommodation site, Singapore-based Asiarooms.com, has launched The Right Room For You campaign to offer personalised deals for the savvy traveller.
From this month, you can log onto www.AsiaRooms.com/MY and browse for booking discounts of up to 76 per cent across the portal’s network of over 55,000 hotels that range from budget hostels to five-star luxury resorts.
Its managing director Andrew Pumphrey says: “We understand that each individual and each trip has different requirements. We cannot have a one-size-fits-all approach.
“Whether you are backpacking or on a family vacation, we want every Malaysian traveller to know that AsiaRooms.com definitely has The Right Room For You.”
This latest campaign is based on insights taken from a local survey conducted by Blackbox Research, an independent market agency in Singapore.
“It provided us with a much clearer perspective of what travellers needed and allowed us to customise our service and offerings accordingly,” say Pumphrey.
“For instance, we expedited a Bahasa Malaysia website that supported currency conversion to ringgit. We also moderated our reviews to ensure only genuine reviews were published.
“We are facilitating the sharing of authentic, undoctored reviews from like-minded travellers so that everyone makes an informed decision on potential destinations and hotels.”
He adds that they pride themselves on giving authentic reviews from real guests of the hotels to help travellers see the hotel from different points of view in an aggregate fashion.
The portal offers 24-hour booking in six languages, with all inclusive rates. Customers can book and pay later for bookings up to a year in advance. They enjoy instant room confirmation and phone bookings are also acceptable.
While the portal does not charge cancellation fees, customers need to read the fine print of the respective hotels a day before and same-day room cancellation policies.
