Travala Adds 1 Million More Holiday Homes You Can Book With Crypto

Travala.com now offers a total of 3 million accommodation options users can book with cryptocurrency.

Online travel booking platform Travala.com has added one million new homes across 195 countries to its site with the release of a designated home bookings section called ‘Homes’.

Holiday homes and apartments can be booked with over 30 different cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Binance Coin (BNB), and Travala.com’s native coin AVA.

The Travala Blog announced that the addition of Homes “marks Travala.com’s entry into one of the fastest growing verticals of the travel industry.” 

In a first quarter earnings call with parent company Booking Holdings, it was revealed that there is a trend towards domestic bookings and alternatives to traditional hotels. Travala.com CEO Juan Otero referenced this trend:

“Demand for non-hotel accommodation is growing fast so the launch of Homes couldn’t come at a better time.”

These additions have brought Travala.com’s travel products that can be booked with cryptocurrencies to over 3 million, Otero added.

Travala.com partnerships

Earlier this week, Travala.com announced its partnership with booking giant Agoda, while a partnership with Expedia was announced in July 2020 and Booking.com in Nov 2019. The travel booking platform has also partnered with blockchain based booking service TravelByBit and is backed by Binance.
