Litecoin is the most recent coin that has been added to platform, which also expands the LTC adoption sphere. Through Travala, LTC can now be used for booking rooms in over 500,000 hotels in over 200 global locations.
Apart from the crypto payments option, the platform offers traditional payment services through Visa, PayPal and Mastercard.
A new campaign for Litecoin
Litecoin and Travala are commencing their collaboration with the #TravelWithLitecoin campaign. It will allow users to get an up to 40-percent discount when booking via Travala and LoafWallet by Litecoin.
Besides, the hotel booking startup intends to be an official partner for Litecoin at the Litecoin Summit in late October 2019. Among the prominent speakers will be the LTC founder Charlie Lee, Anthony Pompliano, and investor Tim Draper.
Both companies hope to advance the global digital economy and involve new users into it.
Among other crypto coins added by Travala recently are Tron and NANO, as reported by U.Today previously.
Airbnb VS Travala
The well-established brand of booking accommodation online, Airbnb, now is also opening itself to cryptocurrencies, eager to pick up hottest trends.
Having partnered with a Swedish platform Bitrefill, it sells gift cards for the most popular coins, including BTC, ETH and LTC. Cards are also sold for DASH and Dogecoin.
