The first travel agency in the world to adopt Bitcoin has delighted its customers again. Now you can pay for your flight and accommodation with Litecoin (LTC), Dash (DASH), and Bitcoin Cash (BCH).

The decision to adopt Bitcoin for the first time was implemented in 2013. Thus, the travel agency has become the world’s first company in this domain to accept cryptocurrency. From now on, the company moves with quick steps towards its development and adaptation to market demands, announcing the expansion of payment services with three more altcoins.

Right now we are in the early stages, but at CheapAir.com we see a future where travellers and travel companies are more accepting of digital currencies, and one where blockchain technologies play a larger role in payments from consumers and with our business partners,” claimed Jeff Klee, CEO, and founder of CheapAir.com.

LTC, DASH, and BCH are more advanced than BTC

Bearing in mind that Bitcoin remains the most popular cryptocurrency in the world, it doesn’t mean that its network isn’t experiencing problems. Among them, we find scalability, volatility, and long transaction times. Given these issues, the travel agency has turned its attention to other cryptocurrencies such as Litecoin, Dash and Bitcoin Cash, all of which have more advanced properties than Bitcoin does.

Our cryptocurrency customers tend to be very vocal about what they want, something we appreciate very much,” stated Klee. “Over the last six months, we’ve seen a huge uptick in the number of customers requesting alternative currencies, so we’ve worked hard to integrate the three that were most requested.”

According to Klee, it’s a challenge to accept virtual coins, especially for travel companies. According to Klee, CheapAir “had the plumbing in place to make digital currency payments work seamlessly for our customers and suppliers.”

That made adding Litecoin, bitcoin cash, and Dash a relatively minor endeavour for our development team, but a huge benefit for our crypto customers,” he concluded.

We want to remind you that in April 2018, the company announced the change of its BTC payment processor. Thus, the crypto exchange Coinbase couldn’t continue to support the company’s operations.
