Leading the tourism sector towards the Bitcoin era
The online travel agency, Destinia, with global headquarters in Madrid, Spain, is one of the first travel agencies in the world to accept payments using bitcoins. Bitcoins are accepted as payments for both hotel accommodation and airline tickets. Destinia is also now the largest e-commerce company in Europe to accept Bitcoins.
As from today, all of its services may be purchased through this virtual currency in 25 languages and from any location on the planet. Destinia thus becomes the first worldwide online travel agency to allow its customers to use bitcoins for their payments, and Europe’s largest company accepting this virtual currency.
Payments using bitcoins are done securely and directly. The purchasing process is identical to any other payment method and is simple, immediate, and commission-free.
Amuda Goueli, Destinia’s CEO, expressed his total trust in the bitcoin: "This payment method is an innovative and secure model that benefits companies and consumers. They save on banking costs, resulting in that we can offer them a cheaper service."
"It is just as revolutionary as the Internet itself was twenty years ago," assured the company’s CEO.
To make it easier for customers to understand the prices, Destinia shows prices in milibitcoins (mBTC). One Bitcoin is equivalent to a thousand milibitcoins.
