Have you booked your summer holiday so far? Not? Than you could pay it now with Bitcoins because Expedia accept Bitcoins since last week. They are working with Coinbase to accept and convert Bitcoin into dollars so you can book your hotel room in the first step. Expedia does plan to expand paying via Bitcoin to its other business segments like flights and car rentals as well. An spokeperson from Expedia said: “The biggest question is really just around when – and the timing all depends on ho well it goes with hotels to start.”

With this step, Expedia is the first big travel business which accept Bitcoin. For the company it’s a good way to show that they are hip and trendy. Accepting Bitcoin attrack more attention on the service. And for Bitcoin fans it’s a great option to pay for another part of their  everyday life with the crypto-currency. So it’s a win-win situation for both sides. If the plan tallies and flights can be payed with Bitcoins, too, it was a big step and will be welcome by everyone who use Bitcoin as a currency!
