Travel Professionals International (TPI) is open for Bitcoin business and reaching a new client base at the same time.
TPI announced in May that they were adopting this latest payment technology, to provide more payment options to its advisors to support their customers.
Ottawa’s Carine Taylor, an eight-year veteran at Travel Professionals International, was the first independent advisor in Canada to make a travel arrangement for a client who paid with Bitcoins.
“I was excited when I contacted this client – who has been a client of mine for a while – and suggested to him to use his bitcoins for his upcoming trip. It was an easy and simple transaction and my client is pleased to be TPI’s first client to use cryptocurrency. We will absolutely continue using bitcoin for all future travels,” said Taylor.
Zeina Gedeon, CEO, reiterated that TPI is committed to meeting the needs of its advisors and their customers.
“Offering travellers another way to pay for their vacations opens up so many more avenues for them. Our cryptocurrency clients can now shop from the vast array of vacation options, including all of the Virtuoso products available at TPI, as well as receive top notch, personalized service from their TPI Travel Advisor. It’s a win-win for our network and for our clients.”
