It has been reported that Juan Otero, the CEO of Travala.com, said that the number of properties on the platform has now reached over 2.2 million in total.
However, he added:
“We can safely say we are the world’s largest blockchain-based online travel agency by number of accommodation options available with over 2,200,000 options to book covering 90,124 destinations.”
According to the company data website Owler, Agoda is a travel industry giant that employs over 4,300 people and has yearly revenue of $1.2 billion.

Likewise, the announcement follows Travala’s partnership with Expedia in early July, which also introduced a considerable number of hotels to the platform.
At the end of November 2019, the firm also struck a similar partnership with Booking.com. This resulted in bookings on the platform skyrocketing by 68% shortly thereafter.
Thus, in May, at the time just an accommodation booking service, Travala also merged with crypto-powered flight booking service TravelByBit.
