Destinia has launched a week-long promotional campaign for travellers paying with the virtual currency: no processing or payment method fees

We want to incentivize alternative payment methods that are beneficial, both for us and for our customers, while still being fast, safe and easy to use,” explains Prieto. The result is the capacity to offer the most attractive prices ever seen on flights: without processing or payment method fees.

Currently, 80% of flights offered on Destinia.com can be paid for using the virtual currency. The travel agency will continue working to extend this payment form to flights on all airlines (e.g: low cost). Destinia started accepting bitcoin payments in January 28th, 2014, and it was the first one in Europe.
