LONDON, April 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Travala.com, the world's leading cryptocurrency-friendly online travel agency (OTA), today unveiled Concierge, a premium, personalised travel booking service for high-net-worth travelers. Designed for travelers who put experience first and seek that "extra mile" treatment, Concierge enables luxury travelers to book travel on their terms with on-demand bookings, expanded payment options, exclusive services and perks, and more, ensuring they feel like a star throughout their experience.
Travala.com Concierge launches as global travel continues its rebound from the pandemic and amidst a strong cryptocurrency market — which last month eclipsed $2 trillion in market value — that has increased the number of Bitcoin millionaires from 15,000 one year ago to 100,000 today. Travelers have also expressed a strong appetite to make up for lost time; a recent study from Travala.com found that 71% of Americans are expecting to spend more annually on travel than before the pandemic and nearly one quarter (23%) are willing to spend more than two full paychecks on an international trip.
"Travel is changing fast. Lost time over the past year and strong crypto portfolios have led many to put the travel experience above all else," said Juan Otero, CEO of Travala.com. "That's why we've launched Concierge: to give high-net-worth travelers the luxury experiences they want — including tailor-made personalization, exclusive service and high-end experiences — and the flexibility to pay for it with crypto, fiat currency or both. The convergence of the rise of travel and thousands of newly minted Bitcoin millionaires makes this the perfect time to introduce a premium travel service like Concierge."
Concierge is reserved for users with a minimum booking spend of $50,000 USD per year on Travala.com and provides exclusive access to luxury experiences such as private jets, yachts, private islands and helicopter and limousine transfers across the world. Features of Concierge include:
- On-demand Bookings: Travala.com finds the best deals for each traveler. Simply tell us when and where, and we'll take care of the rest.
- Exclusive Perks: Access everything on the Travala.com site plus more travel products, special rates and exclusive packages.
- Earn Rewards: Earn a percentage of the hotel booking price back in Travala.com's native utility token, AVA. Use AVA to reduce the cost of future trips or trade AVA for other currencies.
- Expanded Payment Options: Experience even greater freedom with more ways to pay, including with tokens outside of our standard payment options (subject to liquidity and exchange availability).
- Support for Companies: Travala.com Concierge is available to companies that expect elite travel service for their staff and meet the minimum spend requirements.
Backed by industry giant Binance, Travala.com offers over 3 million travel products worldwide, including stays, flights and activities. Designed to enable the growing number of cryptocurrency users to pay for travel in digital currencies, Travala.com gives travelers the flexibility to pay in fiat and over 40 cryptocurrencies. About 70% of all bookings on Travala.com are made in cryptocurrency, primarily Bitcoin and AVA, and the company saw a record $1.7M in bookings in March, a 730% growth over the previous March as overall use of cryptocurrencies continues to rise.
Travala.com Concierge represents an expansion of the OTA's platform, which has traditionally operated as a budget travel supplier through self-service products. Over the past few months, the company has sought suppliers of high-end luxury experiences, which are in high demand among travelers but in short supply due to low inventory and exclusive nature of such products. To accommodate Concierge and enhance the experience for users, Travala.com has expanded its team of expert travel agents, who are distributed across the globe, represent 14 languages, and are equipped and experienced to compile exclusive tailor-made experiences that accommodate the traveler's wildest vacation dreams.
