it is always great to see others are using bitcoin to buy stuff too. i have heard some airlines were accepting bitcoin buy never thought that people are actually using that option of payment.
anyways i hope you enjoy your BTC trip.

Yes, it is Airbaltic. I am posting companies that are accepting bitcoin on my instagram fan page.   @bitcointime

Actually they've been accepting BTCitcoin payments for a while now and IIRC there have been numerous articles regarding it as well. There are some more known other sites that do the same, some even would allow you to book a hotel too with the use of BTCitcoin. On a side note: I've managed to book a bus (for long route vacation) with BTCitcoin as well, even though the process was a bit of a head ache but was successful.

It's nice for you to share that you used bitcoin for your trip. Expedia has been accepting bitcoin for quite some time as early as way back 2014. Unfortunately, those that you can pay with bitcoin are not yet established on every coutry. I gues you can pay bitcoin for the hotels and services that agreed to receive bitcon as a payment.
Have fun with your trip!

Only available for United States resident but not for long,once it becomes very successful it will be adapted by every country expedia has local subsidiary here in our country and they might recommend bitcoin in the near future,we already had a lot of companies using that and I'll wait to see expedia networks to use it also..

I'm going to the Bahamas in April! Cool
Thanks expedia!
I just wanted to share. I had no idea they excepted BTC.
This is my first "big" purchase using bitcoin and I'm stoked.

It is good to know that Travel Agency have started to use Bitcoin as payment mode. but sad that only USA citizens can only use it , as they are using coinbase as their exchange services and coinbase supports only US citizens only. But it is right as other country are still did not made any changes of Bitcoin Technology uses in their respective countrys.

No issues with customs I wonder?
The extra scrutiny of how/
Who paid for the ticket!
Imagine explaining that you used bitcoin! o_O

They do not force you to use Coinbase for no reason. Coinbase are known to bend over to the governments and all their regulations and makes sure they collect all the necessary information needed to follow you, wherever you travel in the world. They will even know what you did on your holiday and what you spend your Bitcoins on.

If you signed up for their debit card, you hand all your private information to them on a platter. Just look at the detail of the information they are gathering here :

Did you buy bitcoin just to use it to pay for the trip?  Did you get a discount?  Would cash have been more convenient?

I'm not trying to rain on the love parade here.  I do like seeing bitcoin get used, but for most things it's so much easier to use cash.


I used bitcoin that I have been sitting on for quite a few years. No discount. They just treat it like a credit card. Could not have been more convenient. As far as spending bitcoin once I'm there? Not a chance in hell but I'm content with a all inclusive trip at a beautiful resort.

They accept BTC? Wow, that's great news. I didn't know they were accepting bitcoin. I always use Paypal to pay when I book online with their partnered sites. I might check that one and maybe try with bitcoin in my next reservation. It's more convinient if I can pay through BTC .

Seems like they've been accepting btc since June 2014, but I think it might be US-only.

The hotels have no idea HOW you paid and they don't care. Expedia does not pay them with BTC. It's just another transaction for them. They will be paid before I get there with whatever deal they have going on with expedia.

Damnn, im currently travelling and im not able to book flights because i have no credit card, and actually... i dont think i really want one.

But now i found out that i cant do it with expedia or coinbase because im not a us citizen.

Are there other sites that offer bitcoin as a payment to book flights? Something like skyscanner or expedia.

Would be too convenient.

How are you even travelling without a credit card? Do you have a debit card then? How do you exchange money to local currencies when you arrive? You must be carrying around wads of bills in your luggage then  Cheesy

That is nice mate. I hope more people will book with BTC. But I hope later that more people will understand what Bitcoin.
I hope more things will accept Bitcoin. The world is becoming more digital and that is very good for coin.

That's interesting that OP have booked a trip using bitcoins. We should encourage to use bitcoins in every possible field.
It will help promote bitcoins. But with bitcoin debit cards, every field can accept bitcoin. But direct bitcoin payment is what we still look for.

I am not surprised more and more places to take and accept bitcoin. The amount of places that are deciding to accept bitcoin is just increasing. I think a lot more people will be open to generally accepting bitcoin once they realize and understand the true value. Still, bitcoin is relatively unheard to many people and the longer and more positive exposure it receives, it will only be beneficial.

I hardly ever use my credit card while traveling -- I usually withdraw money from ATM's with my bank (debit) card instead. I find working out what things cost and paying with foreign currency to be part of the fun! Smiley

Bitcoin is one piece of a larger puzzle to promote liberty, prosperity and democracy.
