Added Jettly (PR: March 7, 2018.)

Also added premiumjet (Nov 2017.)

Bitcoin seems popular lately among the companies that offer private jets (:

For Brits and possibly Europeans another option is gift cards from Giftoff for Virgin flights and flights booked via Lastminute. With Lastminute you can't use gift cards to book holidays, only flights plus hotels.

https://giftoff.com/gift-cards/virgin

https://giftoff.com/gift-cards/lastminute-com

They use Bitpay and I've never had an issue with them.

I've often found the BTC specific flight sellers can be insanely more expensive than going through the normal flight sites. In Europe particularly there are a lot of very cheap airlines that the BTC sites never seem to list so you might be missing out on a 3-4x saving for the same flight.

Great, I added them Smiley thanks.



The ticket prices indeed highly depend on the specific airlines/flights. Destinia and some others do have some low-cost EU carriers like Transavia, Vueling, easyJet, etc. (bit depends on the countries if you need those Tongue) But most times the BTC sites do have some % premium Sad So I would still always recommend people to double check prices among fiat sites as well (Momondo, matrix.itasoftware.com, etc.)

https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/8c8hc7/destinia_claim_they_accept_bitcoin_for_flights/

According to that Destinia Bitcoin options are a lottery. You won't find out whether a flight is payable in BTC until you actually try to.

Sounds pretty strange. Personally, I do actually have good experiences with Destinia but obviously sucks to find out if a flight doesn't work with bitcoin in last step.

There's another travel agency "Agencia de viajes virtual" (apparently, they accept BTCicoin and few other crypto-currencies):

You guys are totally right, let me explain more, i own a virtual travel agency with my wife for a little more than two years now, we accept the traditional payment methods and a few months we started accepting cryptos.
We are associated with a multinational company based un the US (miami), it's a legit bussines, you can check it on the web site.

The site to buy is https://www.agenciadeviajesvirtual.com/Home/Index/49153?pais=USA

In case you want to pay your flight tickets with cryptos choose the Ewallet option
Remember Bitcoin, Litecoin and dogecoin

Take note: I wasn't able to find any reviews + they don't have a user-friendly website.

Indeed a bit confusing site (can't seem to find many flights either), but I added them for completeness Smiley Thanks.

I would assume that someone from here that knows this, is there any site which allows you to buy gift cards to one of the big airlines' companies (American Airlines, Delta, Southwest, etc) with crypto? I'd rather not have to deal with one of these random sites when I'm ordering my tickets so I'm just able to pay directly to ensure that everything is 100 percent OK.


I would think a good amount of people share this sentiment with me, right? I think you all would rather deal with the big companies in crypto if you could with your crypto.

Uh.. there are several gift card options with exactly these 3 airlines in the overview ? :p

Yes, only flights. Basically for hotels there is Expedia.com that accepts bitcoin (make sure to go to the .com - not local.) I don't feel like making an overview of all the other hotel sites, because Expedia is huge and IMO just the site to use for hotels :x

Well, I was just going to mention that for few months now you can book a hotel for TZC, which isn't even in top 100 alts. Cool, eh?

Has anyone tried future.travel yet? I'm willing to book a couple of flight but would like to see if there are any reviews.

Edit: Found this Facebook page and reviews are good. In one of the reviews someone mentioned successful flight booking with Bitcoin too.

Yeah, I find it a tricky one.

On one hand, they really do look like a small regular travel agency in Vietnam (for example if you look on their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/FutureTravel-1504447956442155/) - so that's positive!

On the other hand, a small travel agency could scam or just be a complete fake company (TBH their FB reviews look legit - but again... could "in theory" be faked.)

So yeah..... who will be the first bitcointalk member to try them out lol Cheesy

Wow, that's pretty cool, thanks for the overview!! Are they trustworthy though? Anyone has personal experience in buying flight tickets with Bitcoin or any other crypto?

I have good experiences with Destinia and Abitsky. In general, I definitely don't guarantee that any of them are trustworthy though Tongue Up to everyone to do their own research etc.

BTW, someone from the "Payments Race" mentioned "future.travel" (booked ticket with them): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I0qrn82PhOM so there is that.

I haven't see this for a while an overview of all airline accepting bitcoin as payments, but yeah we need to do our own research for precaution.

I guess there could be some information about asia airlines will accept bitcoin in the future as payment for the ticket or it is all possibilities I'm thinking of traveling in Japan.
