Travala.com Supports the Binance Ecosystem with New Use Cases for BNB and BUSD

2 min read

BUSD (BEP2) is now the default refund currency for cryptocurrency bookings

 

 

A long time supporter of the Binance Ecosystem, Travala.com migrated the AVA token to the Binance chain in 2019. They also became a part of the Binance portfolio in 2020 after the merger with Binance-backed TravelbyBit. Following on from the merger, Travala.com has now completed a deeper integration of BNB and BUSD into their platform. 

 

After a recent update to the Travala.com wallet, BNB and BUSD now sit proudly alongside the Travala.com native currency AVA in the built-in wallet. To activate your BNB and BUSD wallets simply log in to your account and navigate to the My Wallet area, then select deposit with BNB or BUSD and create your new address and memos. Below are some screenshots and descriptions of the latest additions to the Travala.com platform.

BUSD as the default refund currency for bookings made with any cryptocurrency on Travala.com

Refunds have particular significance in the travel and tourism industry – free cancellation or refundable bookings are the standard. This is easy to manage with traditional online payment options like credit cards. However, in the cryptocurrency environment, this is not as simple because transactions cannot be reversed.

 

We have come up with an innovative solution to the cryptocurrency refund problem. Travala.com uses Binance USD (BUSD) as the payout currency for all refundable bookings made with any cryptocurrency. If a traveller pays for their refundable booking with any cryptocurrency and they decide to cancel, they will be refunded the equivalent value of their booking in the BUSD (BEP2) stable coin directly to their Travala.com in-built platform wallet.
