Travala (AVA): Use Your Crypto and See the World!

Travala (AVA): Use Your Crypto and See the World!

Cryptocurrencies bring so many investment opportunities to the table, but it’s the “Medium of Exchange” feature that best aligns with Satoshi’s dream for bitcoin: empowering the unbanked.

Years after Bitcoin’s creation, you don’t have to only rely on your bank to pay for goods and services anymore. With the help of cryptocurrencies, you can instantly pay for what you need. This can be quite useful, especially while traveling, and Travala (AVA) makes that possible for you.

Crypto Payments: a Great Alternative For Credit Cards

According to McKinsey & Company, “2.5 billion of the world’s adults don’t use banks or microfinance institutions.” Interestingly, some of these people have access to banking services but choose not to use them. Whether it’s a personal choice or a matter of banking situation, we all deserve to have different payment options.

Bitcoin was created with unbanked people in mind. Its goal was to offer a better alternative to the traditional financial system. Even though this goal is still debatable and may never happen, Bitcoin was able to improve the current system in many ways.

Years after Bitcoin’s creation, we’re now able to use crypto payments for many things. From Tesla to Coca-Cola, Microsoft, and Starbux, you can pay with your cryptocurrencies.

But what about vacation? Now it’s time to talk about Travala!

Travala (AVA): Use Your Crypto and See the World!

Travala is a blockchain-based booking platform that offers a wide variety of payment options. You can pay for tickets, accommodations, and tours using main cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ether, Tether, or BAT, or less technical coins like DogeCoin and Shiba.

Travala offers accommodation options for 90,124 destinations in 230 countries and territories and it claims that its prices are up to 40% cheaper than mainstream online booking platforms.

By removing intermediaries and hidden costs, Travala wants to bring transparent pricing to the travel industry.

Travala even offers a decentralized booking model to increase transparency and lower fees. Instead of booking through intermediaries such as or Expedia, you can directly contact the property owner or your hotel of choice.

In this way, you can save on costs and fees that otherwise are paid to the intermediaries. Travala still charges a small fee but it’s lower than the regular options that it offers through mainstream travel suppliers.

What is AVA cryptocurrency

You can pay for your service using AVA tokens. This has a few benefits over other payment options like special discounts and lower transaction fees.
