We’re delighted to announce that our partners, Travala.com—the world’s leading cryptocurrency-friendly online travel platform—will soon enable travelers to book short-term rentals directly with short-term rental operators on Travala.com.
The integration will see Travala.com launch a new ‘Homes’ vertical with the addition of Dtravel listings to Travala.com’s existing catalog of over 2.2 million accommodations, 600+ airlines and more than 400,000 activities.
As a result, any short-term rental operator powering their direct booking site by Dtravel Direct will receive exposure to the world's largest blockchain travel distribution network through Travala.com. Travelers will also be able to book Dtravel-powered listings via Travala.com’s wider partner network thanks to other integrations—such as the Travala.com MiniApp and third-party payment channel inclusions—with platforms that collectively boast over 100 million users, including Binance and Crypto.com.
Once the project is completed, the collaboration will further accelerate both companies’ goals of offering a travel booking experience that reduces fees, empowers users and makes travel more rewarding.
How Will the Integration Benefit Short-term Rental Operators?
Since its founding in 2017, Travala.com has amassed an active user base with hundreds of thousands of travelers. With the new ‘Homes’ vertical on Travala.com to be provided by Dtravel, this further expands Travala.com’s offerings—already one of the largest inventories in the industry—and is expected to considerably boost the traffic that Dtravel listings receive.
“This integration will significantly increase the visibility of Dtravel listings,” said Cynthia Huang, Head of Demand Growth at Dtravel. “Property managers are already choosing Dtravel as their preferred solution to accept direct bookings and boost profitability. This expanded reach will make it easier for travelers to discover and book Dtravel listings, while giving Dtravel customers a new channel to reach guests.”
Why is Travala.com Integrating Dtravel Listings?
Travala.com supports over 90 cryptocurrency payment methods and integrated TRVL, the native cryptocurrency of Dtravel, back in November last year. Over 80% of bookings placed on the platform are paid in cryptocurrency.
The demand for vacation rental properties as an alternative to hotels has skyrocketed over the last decade, and Travala.com’s own approach to travel using blockchain and web3 technologies has been a catalyst for ensuring cryptocurrency users have global access to top travel products and services
“One of Travala.com’s key objectives is to connect travelers and suppliers more directly across the various types of travel products we offer, which began with the recent launch of our direct flight supply integration,” said Juan Otero, CEO of Travala.com. “Dtravel's vacation rental inventory is an extension of that strategy and will add to the millions of flights and hotels we already have available, enabling Travala.com to provide travelers the complete trip.”
