Travala.com will become the world’s first-ever blockchain-based OTA to offer Travel Packages (Stays + Flights + Activities) continuing to bring crypto mainstream via travel.
Travala.com, the world’s leading cryptocurrency-friendly online travel agency (OTA), announced a new partnership with Expedia Partner Solutions, gaining access to a direct integration with the travel giant. From today, users will enjoy unparalleled speed when searching for accommodations on Travala.com, as well as access to new exclusive deals and a more refined experience when viewing room images, room descriptions and property descriptions.
Following this new partnership, Travala.com will also be the first blockchain-based OTA to offer Travel Packages (Stays + Flights + Activities) bookable with its native cryptocurrency AVA, as well as 40 other different cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin and Ethereum.
The integration will also enable Travala.com users to take advantage of seasonal offers and promotions, as well as daily deals made up of discounted rooms by up to 70% in some cases.
Travala.com users search for accommodations more than any other offering, and the company has devoted significant time and resources to enhance the user experience for accommodation bookings. Expedia Partner Solutions strongly aligns with Travala.com’s user-centric focus of strengthening existing products while delivering new and disruptive offerings that solve genuine user problems.
Alfonso Paredes, Senior Vice President, Commercial Partnerships at EPS, said: “The passion and innovation at Travala.com has been visible to Expedia Partner Solutions since day one. With payment choices continuing to expand around the world, Travala.com is in the envious position of being ahead of the curve. Our purpose is to support Travala.com to scale faster than ever before – from cutting edge technology, an ever expanding travel supply and mountains of expertise within the EPS organisation – we’re very excited for the future of this partnership”
By combining Expedia Partner Solutions’ state-of-the-art travel booking technology with Travala.com’s blockchain and cryptocurrency innovation, Travala.com’s extensive range of accommodations is now searchable at a markedly improved speed on desktop, mobile, and the Travala.com app.
Juan Otero, CEO of Travala.com, said: “Accommodations are how we got started, so naturally we’re dedicated to improving the accommodation booking experience for our customers and ensuring that we continue to bring cryptocurrencies into the mainstream via travel. Search speed and product content, particularly room images, have been much-discussed topics within our community –– ones that we set out to refine. Following this enhanced partnership with EPS, our customers will now benefit from a world-class experience the next time they make an accommodation booking.”
