“Travala has partnered with Expedia to allow crypto holders to book hotels using crypto, in amove that sent Travala’s token,AVA, over 30%.”
Travala, the crypto-friendly hotelaggregator, has now formed a partnership with Expedia, allowing its customers to use crypto to pay for bookings at around 700,000 hotels and accommodations worldwide.

The company already has a partnership with Booking.com.Travala users can pay in Bitcoin, CRO, Ether, BNB, and Travala’s native currency, AVA.
Travala’s crypto users will now have access to the portfolio of accommodations of the world’s second-largest travel booking agency.
