Crypto.com, Travala.com partner to enable hotel bookings with cryptocurrency

Crypto.com has entered into a new partnership to integrate Crypto.com Pay on crypto-friendly hotel booking platform Travala.com’s website.

The integration will enable customers to pay at Travala.com using cryptocurrencies through Crypto.com. Travellers will have access to pay for bookings at more than two million hotels and accommodations globally.

The site will accept CRO, the Crypto.com Coin, as well as BTC, LTC, ETH and XRP. Travala.com also accepts payments made through credit/debit cards and PayPal.

The Crypto.com app is said to have more than one million users.

While announcing the collaboration, Crypto.com also announced a pay back of up to 10% for bookings paid in CRO. The offer is valid till 30 June 2020.

Crypto.com co-founder and CEO Kris Marszalek said: “At Crypto.com, we are continuously building an ecosystem to foster mass adoption of cryptocurrency.

“Travala.com is a well-recognised brand in the crypto community and we are pleased to welcome them aboard to our expanding merchant network for Crypto.com Pay Checkout.”

Travala.com co-founder and COO Steve Hipwell said: “We’re excited to partner with Crypto.com to further drive cryptocurrency adoption to the masses and make paying with cryptocurrency a norm and look forward to the Crypto.com users joining our crypto travel movement and supporting crypto adoption by booking.”

In December last year, the cryptocurrency platform Crypto.com enabled fiat withdrawal through bank transfer.
