Where do you want to go and why? For me, I want to go to Vienna to see the Vienna Orchestra, Skye Isles to see the highlands, Berlin for historic reasons and London to see the capital of a former British Empire. No matter what budget I have, I am most likely stopped from buying souvenirs thanks to high hotel prices and being unable to counter offers. As a result, Bookwithbit has a solution, and it takes Bitcoin using Coinbase.
Bookwithbit is an online hotel booking website that takes Bitcoin and displays the different hotel rates and has multiple options that help you get the best deal. You can do advanced bookings, social bookings and allows the user to counter offer hotel rates until the person is satisfied with the price. After visiting their website, I noticed that there is a nice interface and flexible cancellation which is really important to travellers just in case they cannot make it. Bookwithbit allows the cancellation of an order and up to 100 percent money back within a certain time period meaning that if you change your mind, you won’t lose any money and with Bitcoin, the transaction will be safe and fast.
Have you ever tried planning an event but end up on hold because the hotel customer service is too busy? Well, it is hard I guarantee because you have to plan out hotel rooms and where to host your event. Surprisingly, Bookwithbit has thought of that challenge too and created a feature that enables event planning and how many people will be there.
Personally, I find that this is a great way to pay for your hotel with extra security. Credit cards numbers are easy to take and could lead to you calling the company to talk about some $50,000 worth of Tatiana Coin you just bought. With the Bitcoin integration for purchases over $400, this is a safer route. Whether your hotel is in the North America or Asia, you do not have to worry about the exchange of currencies because Bitcoin is accepted globally, well… almost globally. Finally, a website that allows you to get low prices on hotels using that Bitcoin you mined.
Even though bookwithbit is a startup, it still packs some interesting features such as “Group Booking” which allows people to book together to split the bill between each other allowing more money to be spent on stuff other than the hotel such as fancy dinners or those tickets to Les Misérables. So far, they have a working website built and testing for bugs in the system but welcome new users to the booking platform. As a bonus for signing up, you get 2100 bits (about $0.90) which gives you some Bitcoin to use for your first purchase.
