Fast-growing Asian online booking platform Agoda has forged a partnership with LGBT travel guide TravelGay.
The deal follows Thailand pledging support for an increased focus on LGBT travellers and the Tourism Authority of Thailand hosting the first symposium for the sector in Bangkok.
TravelGay and Agoda are to work to provide the LGBT travel content to their users.
The partnership will provide better access to the latest up-to-date information for the most safe, welcoming and LGBT-friendly places to stay and visit.
TravelGay managing director Darren Burn said: “We’re hugely excited to be working more closely with Agoda as we grow and develop our business further.
“We have expanded our site rapidly since acquiring the business just a few months ago and intend to work together with our accommodation partners in the coming months and years to further assist the LGBT community on their travels.
Together with our sister brand OutofOffice.com we are the largest LGBT travel business in the world.
“By working with a company as well-known as Agoda, we hope to further enhance our offering to the millions of visitors a year who visit our websites.”
Aaron Moy, head of Agoda’s LGBT employee-resource group, said: “Central to everything we do is the belief that we can help everyone to travel anywhere, so we are thrilled to partner with a company dedicated to ensuring that millions of LGBT travellers each year experience the same warm welcome and level of respect as all other travellers do.”
