In response to clients’ demands, the travel and tourism agency CheapAir chose to broaden its payment methods with cryptocurrency by accepting Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and DASH, in addition to Bitcoin (BTC), for flight and accommodation bookings.
The announcement was published on the company’s website on May 23rd. The report clarifies that the top 3 most popular altcoins among CheapAir’s clients for the past half year have been incorporated into the service, thus becoming part of the few travel agencies that support cryptocurrency payments.
In addition, adding these cryptos as payment methods might also ensure cheaper fees and faster transactions. On the subject, CheapAir CEO Jeff Klee noted that the incorporation of these currencies has been a fairly straightforward process, given the prior experience with Bitcoin (BTC) payments which has been introduced by CheapAir in 2013.
CheapAir travel agency introduced Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and DASH cryptocurrency payments
The Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and DASH cryptocurrency payments started to be analyzed by the company in April when the Bitcoin (BTC) payment service became problematic as Coinbase’s suspended its custody services.
After that, the CEO of CheapAir, Jeff Klee, enquired with clients about their inclination to use BIP70 portfolios in order to be able to use the BitPay platform, as well as to begin to trial cryptocurrency payments with Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and DASH.
CheapAir, headquartered in the United States, is a part of a rapidly increasing group of travel agencies that welcome cryptocurrency payments. These agencies, to date, include TapJets, Destinia, Expedia, Travelforcoins, Abitsky, and BTCtrip, but the majority of these are only accepting Bitcoin (BTC).
The single exception is BTCtrip which also accepts payments in Litecoin (LTC) and Dogecoin (DOGE).
In short, from now on, CheapAir trave agency introduced cryptocurrency payments in Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and DASH.
