Bitcoin is open to everyone and no one controls it.
If you aren’t familiar with how Bitcoin works, here’s the lowdown.
- It is a global borderless currency.
- Bitcoin operates independently using a peer-to-peer system, it does not utilize any central banks.
The #1 perk of using “digital money” is, of course, it’s digital! No need to worry about carrying a card, holding onto bills, or forgetting your wallet.
Using military cryptography, the digital currency is extremely easy to use, even the less-techy of us can use it. It is accessible anytime, anywhere, across all devices!
Ready to start paying digitally? Us too! But who accepts Bitcoin?
Here are 12 Travel Sites that Welcome Digital Currency!
Bitcoin has it’s own travel site, that you might not be aware of. It works similarly to Expedia or Orbitz, in the way that it compares flights and hotel stays across several different platforms.
The website allows you to filter your search with places, stops, dates, times, airports, and airfares. Credible and reliable, most Bitcoin newcomers have visited this site in the beginning.
Forbes said, “Bitcoin.Travel has one of the most comprehensive lists of businesses that use bitcoin.”
Each website that is connected with Bitcoin.travel accepts digital currency! Woot woot!

Expedia, a website, we all have come to know and love. Reliable. Accessible. And now — allows us to pay with just a few clicks! With Bitcoin!

7. Surf Air
Surf Air operates a little differently than most airline sites. Surf Air is the “first private air travel club of its kind offering all-you-can-fly service for one monthly fee.”
Rather than book a single flight on this site, you sign up for a membership, pay the monthly fee, and book as many flights as you wish month to month! It is one of the growing private airlines accepting Bitcoin payments.

ETravelSmart is India’s online bus booking portal that now accepts Bitcoins through a service called Unocoin.
