Hi guys when booking hotel using website like agoda, should i get them to charge me sgd or nt$?

Sent from Samsung SM-G965F using GAGT
Thought Agoda only charge in sgd?
If you manage to see it in foreign currency, do select that.
Unless it is v obvious price is a huge margin, then select sgd.
You didn't use hotelscombined to look for cheapest pricing from all the ota?
Hotels.com, if member also give special price.

I prefer to use sgd, other currency there is a charge I think.
It is usually cheaper to choose their local currency, eg. NT$ or US$. The exchange rates they use for SG$ is usually not good. Or apply for a new service call YouTrip. It is sort like a debit/credit card where you will be charged the current exchange rates with additional costs like processing fees. Comparing to xe.com exchange rates, YouTrip is very close, sometimes even providing better rates. I've used it several times to buy things from amazon already.
