NLNico, are you adding flights only or other travel related info as well? Hotels etc
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
So I just noticed Expedia doesn't accept bitcoin anymore due to Coinbase stopping custodial merchant tools.

So for now, there is destinia.com, cheapair.com, abitsky.com, etc for hotels too.. or one of the gift card sites for a Hotels.com coupon (if you prefer to do it that way.) But maybe I will make a more complete overview for hotels in the future as well Smiley

Cheapair also used Coinbase, but switched to BTCPay server so (AFAIK) they are the first in this list to use a self-hosted non-custodial open-source solution.. pretty awesome Smiley

Just noticed Bitrefill.com also has gift cards for Flightgiftcard, Hotelgift and Hotels.com (and Uber in US.) Interesting is that you can also pay through the Lightning Network (both BTC and LTC.)

I had seen this thread before and it do helps me when it comes on booking a flight online. I was aware or do notice the announcement of coins.ph that they are already into online booking with flights. I saw the guide wayback before and tried it myself and book without any hassle on falling inline just to book a ticket. Its done thru online with just simple steps. How good for local wallets or mechants do offer this specially for people who do actively make travel to other places.  Btw i merited this post.  Cheesy

I know one reliable service for booking cheap flights. It's easy in use and its prices are lower on the average. Just a few weeks ago I found a ticket to Cuba for sale there. I think it's one of best online services if you want to save money on flights.

Just saw someone ordered Easyjet tickets by using a service called thebigcoin.io ("order anything online and pay with crypto" service.) So added it to the overview Smiley

Seems somewhat convenient and you can probably buy all possible plane tickets with it, but a relatively high fee of 7-12%. They are on bitcointalk too.

Does there really exist such thing? Bitcoin flights? I knew one of Japan airlines (if I am correct) was planning this but didn't know if it was ever released in real life. Thank you OP for sharing it...
Which website is 100 legit to buy tickets? I mean international flights with any line, for example take Turkish Airlines. Thebigcoin has very high fees, it even doesn't worth to use.

Going on those criteria you may as well list crypto debit cards too. It's just a different way of buying anything with a cut just like them. I'd prefer no middle men in the list myself.

Meh, they are all the way down in the list at the "Specials" category, so I think it's okay. I also don't think debit cards are really comparable because they take a lot more time to order (and frequently have KYC/AML for higher limits etc), while thebigcoin.io seems to provide a quicker direct service.

But I obviously agree that I prefer direct providers. Note that sites like Destinia and Cheapair also just book (all or at least some) flights with their credit cards directly from the airline sites. They just have an automated system for it and charge a bit less than thebigcoin.io, so it's a bit more reasonable.



(PS, on the topic of debit cards... for those wondering.. currently this seems the best crypto debit card overview)

Hey thanks for this comprehensive list.  Grin

I reckon we would reach the Moon, with one of these airlines. Anyone want to find out if we can buy some tickets for the

next Mars mission with bitcoins? Who was working on this? {Virgin or Elon Musk?}  Roll Eyes

Lol, I actually have considered putting them in the list. Since 2013 Virgin Galactic indeed accepts bitcoin: Buy your space flight with bitcoin (ticket is $250k worth.) The Winklevoss brothers already bought tickets in 2014.

They also accept Litecoin, DASH and Bcash (1). During the recent Litecoin summit, they were also offering discounts on Litecoin payments (2).

Added m2jets.com, monarchairgroup.com, vegasexpressjet.com, priorityonejets.com, simplecharters.com, navair.com.au, flyzuum.com, avionejet.com and privatejethiredirect.com. All companies that offer private jet flights. Actually made a "Private jet" category considering there are already 14 of them.

Just WOW. 14 companies accepting Bitcoin for private jets while there are only a handful of them for retail flights? This is something I had not expected. But anyway the larger the adoption the better.

They're appealing to early adopters and ICO con artists and expecting them to be into the idea of throwing their free money around. They appeal to vanity. I guess there is enough of their ICO money still around, or rather our money, that hasn't yet been fully squandered.

Added Travelbybit.com.

They are also the payment processor for Brisbane Airport (and other AUS) merchants that accept crypto (even LN.) And they got some investors like Binance, so not some random new company. They also don't use a third-party for payments, so that is always a plus.
