Travala’s native token AVA will now be added to the Swipe wallet service and Visa card platform.

Announced on July 24. Travala’s AVA token will now be spendable at 60 million merchants.

Swipe’s integration with major players will make AVA supported by:

  • Samsung Pay
  • Google Pay
  • Apple Pay

The AVA token will be now available to the 500,000 users of Swipe’s multi-asset digital wallet.

The news is followed by Swipe’s acquisition by Binance crypto exchange and the trading platform’s issuance of a Swipe-powered crypto debit card, Binance Card.

Last year, Travala.com migrated to Binance Chain.

Swipe’s native token SXP will also be added to Travala.com as a preferred payment option for bookings at over 2 million hotels across 230 countries.

Among these are ExpediaBooking.com and Priceline, all of which have previously partnered with Swipe for crypto-friendly travel booking services.

Travala’s customers can pay with its native AVA token and other 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). 

Travala CEO Juan Otero claimed the two-way integration of Travala and Swipe’s native tokens would be “massive for adoption.”

When spent through Swipe’s Visa debit cards, cryptocurrencies like AVA are instantly converted into fiat currency.

Travala recently announced that its monthly revenue saw a 205% increase this May as compared to April, a sign of recovery followed by major dent to bookings amid the COVID-19 pandemic. 

In May, Travala merged with TravelByBit, which provides services for flight bookings of over 600 airlines.
