Coingecko and Travala partnership

Travala.com partners with CoinGecko’s new rewards platform to advance mainstream crypto adoption through exclusive member offers.

 

Singapore, Thursday, 21 January 2021 –– Travala.com, the world’s leading crypto-friendly online travel agency (OTA), today announced their new partnership with CoinGecko, the world’s leading independent cryptocurrency aggregator. 

 

From today, CoinGecko rewards members will be able to claim a US$10 discount voucher for hotels booked on Travala.com. Additionally, new Travala.com users will also receive US$10 worth of travel credits as part of Travala.com’s standard sign-up offer. These incentives are coupled with savings of up to 40% on more than 3,000,000 travel products around the world, which are sourced from industry partners including booking.com, Expedia, Agoda and Hotelbeds.

 

The two projects are a natural fit, given their mutual goal of advancing the mainstream adoption of cryptocurrency. Both have an established reputation within the crypto community as companies striving to reduce the barriers to entry through their respective platforms. Together, the companies aim to enrich the experience for existing crypto users while introducing new users to the ecosystem.

Juan Otero, CEO at Travala.com, said: “We’re always eager to engage in opportunities that create value not just for our existing customers, but for the customers of other crypto projects and the broader crypto community, too. CoinGecko provides an indispensable service to a large percentage of the community, and we’re very excited to be partnering with the team to further cryptocurrency adoption.”

 

Travala.com, in addition to traditional credit and debit card payments, enables its customers to book travel with 40+ major cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, as well as recent additions including VLX, FTM, XHV and ZIL. Best of all, there is no extra charge for using crypto, making Travala.com the most affordable, crypto-friendly OTA. In keeping with its intention of providing its customers with choices, the OTA offers an extensive range of travel products, comprising over 3,000,000 hotels, homes, flights, and, very soon, activities.

 

Travala.com customers also earn rewards in crypto via the OTA’s native AVA token, which allows travellers to stake AVA tokens in exchange for discounts and other exclusive benefits, such as a yield of 24% APY.
