Binance, the major cryptocurrency exchange, has announced that it partnered with TravelByBit, a crypto travel startup, to launch a rewards card that facilitates crypto payments on major travel websites.
As it has been announced on November 28, the card will function like a traditional prepaid card with access to additional discounts and rewards that users will be able to load with Bitcoin (BTC), Binance USD (BUSD), Binance Coin (BNB) and Ontology (ONT).
However, the card will be released early next year and will initially target travelers in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, Australia, and Europe, with plans to gradually expand.
Likewise, the service will reportedly allow its customers to book flights and hotels through major booking sites including Booking.com, Expedia, Agoda, and Ctrip, as well as TravelByBit’s own platform.
Thus, TravelByBit is not the first service enabling its users to travel with cryptocurrencies. As it has been recently reported, Travala.com, the crypto booking firm, announced that it will now let its customers reserve any hotel that is bookable through Booking.com with cryptocurrency.
