Agoda.com says travelers' prefer free Wi-Fi to free breakfast

Priceline Group (Nasdaq: PCLN) company Agoda.com said it has announced the results of its most recent Travel Smarts survey, which shows travelers prefer free in-room Wi-Fi to free breakfast.

The survey, conducted in July 2015, asked over 5,000 Agoda.com customers from around the world which amenities they want in hotel rooms.

When asked which they´d rather have for free, travelers prefer Wi-Fi over breakfast, but barely. Wi-Fi got 55 percent of the vote and breakfast 45 percent.

“We know both are important to our customers,” says John Brown, Agoda.com´s Chief Operating Officer. “Most hoteliers understand that, too, and the majority of the properties on Agoda.com offer room rates inclusive of Wi-Fi, breakfast or both,” he said.

Travelers do have a clear preference when it comes to spacious beds, though. When asked whether they´d prefer a bigger bed or a bigger bathroom, 75 percent picked a bigger bed.

Agoda is a leading Asia-based, online accommodation reservations company, which specializes in securing the lowest discount accommodation prices.
