Grab, the leading ‘super-app’ in Myanmar and Southeast Asia, has launched a new service named Hotels, which allows customers to directly book hotels and other accommodations from Agoda and on the app, state media reported.

The new service has been rolled out before the Christmas and New Year holidays so users can compare prices across more than 2 million places to stay, ranging from luxury and budget hotels to apartments and vacation homes.

Grab users in Yangon, Mandalay, and Bagan will be able to see the ‘Hotels’ tile on the App’s home screen starting today. After tapping on it, users will have the option of creating or logging in to their Agoda and accounts.
