Travala Becomes Partners with Booking.com, the Accommodation Aggregator
For some years now, many companies have adopted the use of cryptocurrencies, and people with this kind of currency can now use it to buy various kinds of goods and services. In the year 2017, Travala.com was launched, and it is a platform for accommodation listings where you can see many different places to lodge such as hostels, apartments, villas, hotels, and luxury resorts. There are other popular online platforms for booking, but Travala has claimed that its own (Travala) platform has very cheap prices compared to others. Travala says that theirs is 40% cheaper than other platforms. Another thing is that with Travala, you can be free to make use of cryptocurrencies like BTC, BCH, ETH, XMR, ADA, XRP, DASH, TRX, BNB, EOS, XLM, LTC, and DAI. The CEO of Travala who goes by the name Matt Luczynski made it clear that Travala and Booking.com are now partners. Here is the further statement of Matt Luczykinski:
“This partnership deal has made it possible for those making use of Travala to access the whole accommodation listings of Booking.com. not only will they be able to access Booking.com’s listings, but they can also have access to the listings of other top travel suppliers. This is a big step to make the adoption of cryptocurrency possible and it is also an advantage for our AVA token.”
Booking.com was founded in the year 1996 as an aggregator of accommodation listings and is currently in a partnership deal with Travala which has added up to 90,000 different destinations to close to 250 countries around the world to Travala’s platform. Matt Luczynski, the CEO of Travala, states that Travala.com users can now use close to 20 cryptos including Travala’s AVA token to pay for their accommodations. There is a large reward of loyalty and there will also be discounts for those who make use of Travala’s AVA. Matt Luczynski made a statement that Booking.com has realized the importance to increase the availability of its properties to the fast-rising markets of cryptocurrency. Luczynski also says that Booking.com’s move is evidence to show that very soon, the industry will accept the use of cryptocurrencies to pay for accommodation bookings.
Recently, travel agencies (online) that accept cryptocurrency have been introduced publicly by many firms. The Corporate Traveller of UK revealed in May that it now accepts BHC and BTC for SME customers. Lubomir Tassev of news.Bitcoin.com described an abundance of travel sites supported by crypto such as Travala, Travelbybit, Airtreks, Bitcoin.Travel, Greitai, Cheapair, and destinia. But, checking the number of bookable accommodations, Travala is still rated among the largest Travel agencies all over the globe because of being partners with Booking.com.
Travala concluded its announcement by stating that Booking.com’s move to support Travala.com shows its level of confidence in Travala and that it is committed to helping them use digital tech to make travel simple.
