Empower ownership in a decentralized travel ecosystem
As a web3 ecosystem, bookings are conducted on-chain in a peer-to-peer manner, with Dtravel acting solely as the technology and infrastructure provider. Smart contracts govern booking conditions, ensuring full transparency and independence. Hosts have the ability to accept crypto and/or fiat payments from guests, diversifying the customer base.
By leveraging smart contracts and blockchain technology, Dtravel eliminates the issues resulting from short-term rental platforms and travel agencies. This approach empowers hosts to create their own terms/policies, build their unique brand with greater customizability and enjoy unconstrained communications with guests.

Frequently asked questions
We are currently working to onboard all waitlist members. You should receive an email shortly. Please keep an eye on your inbox and check your junk mail in case our communication was incorrectly filtered.
In the meantime, please join the Dtravel Discord community. Here, you can chat directly with Dtravel team members and fellow travelers, find helpful resources, propose new features, and much more. This is also where we’ll be sharing announcements and news first before anywhere else.
To get started, you’ll need to use Hostaway as your Channel Manager and Property Management System (PMS). This will allow you to seamlessly create your Dtravel listings and sync them with your other channels.
To sign up for Hostaway, schedule a 1:1 demo here. Please mention “Referred by Dtravel” in the comment field so that Hostaway can bump you to the top of their waitlist and show you how to get set up.
For those who have less than three properties or are currently using a different PMS, we are working to add more Channel Managers and PMS integrations in the coming months, and have already received many suggestions from the community for our next integrations. If you have a request, fill out this survey and let us know who you’d like to see as our next integration partner.
In the beginning, PMS integrations will allow hosts to use Dtravel with the least amount of friction, allowing them to effortlessly switch on Dtravel and list their properties in bulk without having to create specific listings for each property.
By lowering the barrier to entry, hosts can experience Dtravel and the benefits of on-chain bookings without any interruption or change to their existing way of managing listings and bookings.
Dtravel’s decentralized nature means low overhead costs. To ensure the network can be maintained and improved, a 5% host-only fee is allocated from each transaction to the Community Treasury.
The funds in the Community Treasury are entirely reinvested into building and expanding the ecosystem, with hosts — as well as other community members — having a say on how these funds are used.
During the introductory period, Dtravel hosts will receive the cost of the 5% fee back in the TRVL token, effectively resulting in 0% fees.
While fee structures are constantly being revised and experimented with by platforms, most generally place greater weight on either charging hosts (host-centric) or charging guests (guest-centric):
Dtravel = 5% host / 0% guest
Platforms with host-centric fees = 15% host / 0% guest
Platforms with guest-centric fees = 3-8% host / 10-14% guest
Dtravel has committed to evolving into a sustainable Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) structure. To do this, we have decided to first stress test this organizational structure internally through proposal writing, voting and subDAO operations. We are currently in the process of developing an onboarding plan that will empower the Dtravel community to contribute to the future of the ecosystem.
