Travala and Booking.com united for tourism - The Cryptonomist
Travala just now officially announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with the publicly traded giant (NASDAQ: BKNG) Booking.com, a company founded in 1996 in Amsterdam.
Throughout the last year, Travala has proved to be the key player in the crypto industry with regard to hotel reservations thanks to the integration of several cryptocurrencies as payment methods, resulting from partnerships aimed precisely at increasing crypto adoption.
In addition, Travala has also integrated a staking service with its AVA token, which allows holders to receive discounts on bookings, thus reducing costs with respect to traditional competitors.
As can be read in the above-mentioned press release, thanks to this important new partnership, Travala has integrated the assets of Booking into its platform, allowing users to view the offers of Booking on the same platform and pay comfortably in crypto.
Before this integration, Travala could already boast 2 million hotels from which users could choose, but now the offer is extended to the additional 230 countries and 90,000 destinations worldwide.
This shows that the traditional world is on the move to avoid falling behind in the technological revolution dictated by crypto and blockchain, as explained by the CEO of Travala, Matt Luczynski:
“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”.
Recently Travala also partnered with Komodo and Stellar Lumens (XLM) to further expand its platform’s offer of crypto payment methods; as well as with the KuCoin exchange and its token (KCS), and also with numerous other companies and blockchains including Waves, NEO, TRON (TRX) and many more.
