On July 28th, TravelBlock.io, the first major blockchain project to offer heavily discounted travel deals that are purchasable with cryptocurrencies, is opening access to its beta software for all TRVL token holders. The platform comes with resort, hotel, airfare, & cruise search capabilities as well as an all-new, fully operable discount engine.
TravelBlock introduces the new generation of travel by eliminating traditional Global Distribution System and going through the blockchain. By taking this route, there will be significant advantages over the utilization of existing frameworks and applications. It’s low cost, secure, immutable, irreversible and transparent for the public.
By being part of TravelBlock, token holders can make use of their TRVL tokens to get an average of 30% to 60% discount on vacation needs. These deals are available only on TravelBlock private consumer platform, exclusively for TRVL token holders. The platform is able to offer wholesale rates and best possible pricing to the community through strong affiliation and direct negotiations with travel providers and other industry participants.
In its message to the community, TravelBlock states, “We assure you that wherever your travels lead you to, you’ll always get what you want, where you want, and when you want it.”
Discounted booking for vacations is already available on TravelBlock.io. During the beta, travel booking will only be available in fiat currencies. Payment with TRVL tokens will be made available once the beta testing is completed.
Pre-sale token holders are automatically being given access to the beta software and discount travel search engine, but it is still possible for people who missed the pre-sale to give the beta a test drive by getting an invitation from a friend who joined the pre-sale, or through one of their beta launch token offerings coming soon. Only TRVL token holders can access the beta.
The TRVL token is an ERC20 based token that provides access to and discounts on the TravelBlock travel network. Holding TRVL tokens allows access to the TravelBlock Closed Consumer Group (CCG), which allows usage of the TravelBlock booking website where discounted travel offers are listed. Because it is a closed consumer group for token holders only, there are no limitations to the types and sizes of discounts they can provide, and they can apply to any and every resort, hotel, flight, or cruise around the world. These are discounts that are not allowed to be listed publicly outside of a closed consumer group.
The TRVL token also provides a reward system for travel, so users can essentially “get paid to travel”. Cryptocurrency enthusiasts could view it as mining for TRVL Reward Tokens by traveling. The more one travels, the more Reward TRVL Tokens they receive. Reward TRVL tokens can be spent on any travel booked through the TravelBlock booking engine, but they are not tradable on exchanges, in order to minimize the volatility of the token. Regular TRVL token holders will be able to trade their TRVL tokens on exchanges when the token is officially released, but reward tokens will remain in their booking system accounts for purchasing travel only.
TravelBlock also offers free vacations to members. During the pre-sale, Token holders of certain amounts of TRVL were given a free 7-day vacation through the TravelBlock platform. With the beta opening on July 28th, those TRVL token holders will have access to their free vacations immediately to start booking.

TravelBlock Vacation Offers
All contributors that invested 5 ETH or more during the pre-sale will be receiving their free 1-week voucher(s) so they can use it immediately to book their first trip through the TravelBlock platform. They will be able to select from any of TravelBlock’s wide range of offers. TravelBlock will be announcing the details of its new partnership with “I Only Fly First Class” in the coming weeks.
TravelBlock has extended the Beta access to all current TRVL token holders as well as new token purchasers and will be giving current token holders access to the booking platform. Further, token holders can earn more free travel opportunities by inviting their friends and family to join the TravelBlock beta and winning the referral reward tokens.
