Webjet accepts bitcoin

Webjet ExclusivesWebjet has teamed up with Australian company BitPOS to accept bitcoin as a payment method on its Webjet Exclusives site.

Bitcoin will sit alongside other payment options including PayPal, Visa, Mastercard, Amex and Bpay on the Webjet Exclusives site.

Webjet is trialling bitcoin on Webjet Exclusives before potentially introducing the new payment option across its other products, including flights, accommodation and travel insurance.

Webjet Exclusives is the first online travel agency in Australia to accept bitcoin, offering a straightforward checkout process where customers can complete the transaction using their mobile’s bitcoin wallet software.

Paul Ryan, CEO of Webjet Exclusives, said it’s an innovative addition to the existing payment options available on site.

“We are dedicated to providing our customers with a wide range of choice and flexibility in how they can purchase their travel deals. In this particular case we are excited to extend this payment option to the community of bitcoin users that have relatively limited choice in terms of online retailers in the Australian market,” said Ryan.

Webjet Exclusives was launched in June 2014 and offers exclusive directly contracted travel deals to its members.
