What is cryptocurrency?

Cryptocurrencies are digital forms of money secured by cryptography, making them difficult to counterfeit or double-spend. To put it simply, crypto coins are online tokens stored in a digital wallet that can be used for peer-to-peer transactions without banks getting involved.

Unlike traditional currencies, cryptocurrencies operate on a decentralised network called "blockchain" - a public ledger that records all transactions, offering transparency and security.

Can I buy flights safely with cryptocurrency?

Buying flights with crypto can be safe, but only if you stick to trusted platforms and airlines. Here at Alternative Airlines, we prioritise your security by partnering with reliable crypto payment processors like, xMoney, CoinGate and Binance. We ticket over 600 airlines on our site - you can use any of the cryptocurrencies available at our checkout to pay for flights with ANY of these airlines!

Cryptocurrency offers unique security benefits when buying flights online. Transactions are recorded permanently on the blockchain, making them tamper-proof and auditable - this reduces the risk of fraud compared to traditional methods. Additionally, crypto wallets often have strong encryption and require unique passwords.
