In signing a Strategic Partnership Agreement with Booking.com, the cryptocurrency-friendly travel booking platform Travala.com has heralded a new approach to bringing cryptocurrency adoption to the masses.
Working together with the world’s leading digital travel company, Travala.com has already integrated Booking.com’s accommodation listings to its platform that is now live and bookable across over 230 countries and 90,000 destinations worldwide.
Customers on Travala.com are able to pay for hotels with the proprietary AVA token and 20 other leading cryptocurrencies in addition to traditional payment methods. Booking.com has recognized the value in making its vast portfolio of properties available to the growing blockchain and cryptocurrency markets. Such a move by Booking.com is a sign that we are close to seeing the industry’s acceptance of cryptocurrencies as a standard form of payment for travel bookings.
Matt Luczynski, CEO of Travala.com said: “This partnership allows our users to access Booking.com’s accommodation listings, as well as the listings from several other leading travel suppliers, which is a fantastic use case for our own AVA token and another huge step towards mass cryptocurrency adoption”.
In addition to unbeatable prices via its Best Price Guarantee, users of Travala.com also enjoy exclusive discounts and loyalty rewards via its tokenized incentives powered by its native utility token AVA.
