Travala Adds 600,000+ Hotels to Their Crypto Booking Platform

Travala is expanding its crypto-powered offerings thanks to a new partnership.

Travala.com has recently added an additional 600,000 hotels to its crypto-powered online travel platform thanks to a recent partnership with booking giant, Agoda.

Travala’s CEO, Juan Otero, told Cointelegraph that the number of properties on the platform has now reached over 2.2 million in total. He claimed:

“We can safely say we are the world's largest blockchain-based online travel agency by number of accommodation options available with over 2,200,000 options to book covering 90,124 destinations.”

Agoda is a travel industry giant that — according to company data website Owler — employs over 4,300 people and has a yearly revenue of $1.2 billion.

Travala.com partnerships

The announcement follows Travala.com’s partnership with Expedia in early July, which also introduced a considerable number of hotels to the platform. At the end of November 2019, the firm also struck a similar partnership with Booking.com. This resulted in bookings on the platform skyrocketing by 68% shortly thereafter.

In May, Travala.com — at the time just an accommodation booking service — also merged with crypto-powered flight booking service TravelByBit.
