Travel Daily - - News -

NEW Mel­bourne cor­po­rate agency 442 Travel has put cryp­tocur­rency at the top of its trans­ac­tion pro­cesses, al­low­ing its clients to pay for travel with Bit­coin and other dig­i­tal money.

The com­pany’s op­er­a­tions man­ager Da­mon Mac­far­lane said the agency was now ac­cept­ing Ethereum, Lite­coin, Dash and Bit­coin Cash, al­low­ing its cus­tomers to travel the world with­out con­cerns about fluc­tu­at­ing foreign cur­ren­cies or con­ver­sion rates.

He said cryp­tocur­ren­cies al­lowed trav­ellers to pur­chase trips in­stantly while avoid­ing fees, ATM charges, in­ter­est charges and credit card fraud risks.

“It’s an in­dus­try first for a cor­po­rate travel agency and we’re proud to of­fer this new fea­ture to our cus­tomers,” he said.
