On November 25, it has been announced in a press release by Travala.com that it has already integrated Booking’s accommodations to its platform. The new feature will reportedly allow users to book 90,000 different destinations by using cryptocurrencies.
However, Travala’s customers can pay with its proprietary AVA token and 20 major crypto assets including Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Dash (DASH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Litecoin (LTC), EOS, Stellar (XLM), Cardano (ADA), Binance Chain (BNB), Monero (XMR), Tron (TRX), XRP and Dai (DAI).
Matt Luczynski, the CEO of Travala.com, commented:
“This partnership allows our users to access Booking.com’s accommodation listings, as well as the listings from several other leading travel suppliers, which is a fantastic use case for our own AVA token and another huge step towards mass cryptocurrency adoption.” Matt Luczynski
On the same day (November 25), Travala also announced that its proprietary token was listed on Binance DEX, the decentralized exchange, and is currently trading against Binance Coin on the platform.

Likewise, different travel and tourism companies worldwide have begun adding support for cryptocurrencies as payment options.
Thus, earlier this summer, the Co-founders of Norwegian Air, the Scandinavian Air Carrier, announced plans to launch their own cryptocurrency exchange, which will subsequently facilitate the airline’s acceptance of cryptocurrency payments.
