Eclipse Travel first full-service Travel Agency in Australia to accept Bitcoin

Eclipse Travel has today announced the addition of Bitcoin as a payment method for all services, offering customers greater flexibility when purchasing their holiday. The cryptocurrency has seen meteoric growth recently, with values rising around 1,850 per cent since 2015. This phenomenal growth has driven strong interest within the Australian market, but there are still few companies accepting this new form of payment.

Eclipse Travel Director Matt McMillan explains ‘We have been watching the development of Bitcoin within the Australian market over the past few years with great interest. We want to provide Bitcoin users with another tangible outlet for their currency – which there are currently very few of. We are strong believers in innovation and new technology and are excited to play our own small part in a more mainstream acceptance of Bitcoin within Australia’.

Customers will be able to request a quote in Bitcoin for flights, accommodation, cruises and tours to a range of destinations including South America, Africa, Antarctica and the Arctic.
