Participating Airlines and Agencies
BTCtrip.com — The online travel agency allows you to pay for flights with Bitcoin or Litecoin (LTC), showing prices only in the amount of BTC/LTC required. This European site definitely has an alternative feel to it but had competitive prices for the routes I searched.
Cheapair.com — In 2013, Cheapair.com was the first US website to start accepting Bitcoin for travel. You can still pay for air, hotel and car rentals with Bitcoin on the site. Cheapair also uses Coinbase for payment processing.
Expedia — The online travel agency only accepts Bitcoin for hotels (not flights) and uses Coinbase. You can send BTC to an address or use your Coinbase wallet to pay.
Surf Air — The California-based all-you-can-fly airline announced in December 2017 that it would accept Bitcoin and Ethereum for monthly payments. I went to the site to try and find any mention of the payment form and got all the way to a checkout page for a new membership, but the only credit card was listed. I called the airline to check and got a “no one is here to accept your call, goodbye” message and a hangup.
