I was wondering if anyone had considered (or heard of) a bitcoin service offering travel purchases for bitcoins. Customers could contact the agent and give general criteria for travel, then the agent would provide a few offerings and their USD/bitcoin price, and would accept payment for them in bitcoin. The agent could then just purchase the tickets using a credit card.
This could possibly be extended to hotels and car rentals, but the issue there is the fact that those two usually ask for the customer's credit card in person, to cover incidental damages, and often charge the entire bill to whatever card the customer provides. If it were possible to arrange full prepayment for hotels, that'd be cool too. The service would probably need to be offered by a trusted community member, due to the added inconvenience of a scam when you show up in a foreign country and your supposedly reserved hotel has never heard of you.
Anyway, does anyone have any thoughts about this? Has this been done? I'm mostly asking because I need to buy a plane ticket soon and was thinking how nice it'd be to be able to pay for it in bitcoins
