Summary:

Lacking in the traditional OTA model is a true ability to incentivise users to engage with the platform and community beyond simply booking their desired services and quickly disengaging. Most users of traditional OTA’s are familiar with the experience of receiving platform-specific rewards points which don’t seem to have an intrinsic value beyond the OTA itself. With AVA, there is a multi-pronged incentivisation mechanism to increase the level of its use on the Travala.com platform.

Though it may seem simple, it is the link to real-world value which is the final piece of the puzzle in incentivising user contribution and interaction with a platform. Additionally, these tokens can be saved up for use on future bookings, increase your Smart membership level on the platform for discounts and loyalty, or be withdrawn from the platform to your private wallet of choice.

It’s clear to see the extensive benefits for holding the AVA token and the real world utility it offers. The asset has an immediate and recognizable utility within the platform and will be a highly sought after token that many travelers will strive to collect to get to that next level of the SMART rewards!
