India's burgeoning tourism industry is undergoing a rapid digital transformation, and Agoda, a leading digital travel platform, is at the forefront of this revolution with a simple 30-minute onboarding programme aimed at empowering even the least tech-savvy hoteliers. The initiative is set to reshape the landscape of the country's hospitality sector. 

In an era marked by the convergence of digital transformation, increased connectivity, and an insatiable appetite for unique travel experiences, India's travel industry is evolving like never before. Domestic and international travellers alike are increasingly seeking out off-the-beaten-track adventures, and the key to capturing their attention is going digital. 

Gone are the days when only large hotel chains and premium properties dominated the online space. Agoda's Partner Hub now offers a straightforward 6-step onboarding process, allowing hotels of all sizes to establish their online presence within half an hour, regardless of their website-building skills. 

Here's how the quick onboarding process works: 

  1. Visit Agoda’s Partner Hub: Navigate 

  1. Join Us: Click on 'Join Us' in the header. 

  1. Property Selection: Choose to list a hotel or homestay.

  1. Begin Onboarding: Click 'Select' to start the process. 

  1. Account Setup: If you have an Agoda account, sign in. If not, follow the provided form to create one.

Agoda's quick onboarding process has become one of the most sought-after features among small and medium hotel businesses. Independent hoteliers often offer unique experiences and attractions for travellers, making it essential for them to establish a digital presence in an age when travel content is widely shared on platforms like YouTube and Instagram. 

This digital leap allows hotels to cater to a diverse audience, from remote workers and culinary tourists to adventure enthusiasts and those seeking wellness and spiritual experiences. With Agoda's streamlined onboarding procedure, India's hospitality industry can quickly transition into the digital age. The platform's network comprises 3.6 million hotels and holiday properties worldwide, providing a unique opportunity for hotels to showcase their offerings to a global audience. 

As India's travel industry embraces digitalization, Agoda is ensuring that "no hotel is left behind."
