How to Book Your Next Trip With Crypto

Apr 17, 2019

We are all big fans of HODLing at YouHodler but even we can admit, it would be nice to use our crypto in the “real world” sometime. We all know it’s coming, but don’t you ever dream about flying to Ibiza with Bitcoin or booking a hotel on the French Riviera with Ethereum? Well, you can stop dreaming now because YouHodler has made it possible to book your next travel adventure entirely with crypto. Here’s how to do it.

Step 1: Sign Up and pass KYC

Visit YouHodler.com and click “Sign up.” Follow the instructions from there. After signing up, everyone must pass KYC in order to interact with the platform.

Please visit our helpdesk on more details regarding the process and how to pass KYC.

Step 2: Deposit crypto

Now that you’ve passed KYC, it’s time to deposit the crypto of your choice. We have a large list of crypto options including BTC, BCH, ETH, XRP, XLM, DASH, LTC and REP (Augur). This list continues to grow each month. To see the full list of accepted cryptos, click the “Wallets” button on the left-hand column in your profile.

Choose the crypto wallet you want to deposit crypto into and click “deposit.” You then have the option to copy the wallet address or scan a QR code for this deposit.

Step 3: Convert crypto to fiat or get loan

Option 1: Convert crypto to fiat.

To convert crypto-to-fiat, please go to the “Wallets” page. There, you will see a list of wallets. If you have any balance on your wallet, you will see a Convert option available.

By clicking on the Convert button you will be brought to the Conversion form. The same form can be used for any type of conversion. On the left side, you will choose the amount you want to spend. On the right side, you can see the amount you will receive as a result of the conversion.

Option 2: Get a loan

Another great alternative to crypto conversion is using your crypto as collateral for a fiat loan. If you want to keep your crypto but still receive a cash loan for traveling, you can use YouHodler’s crypto lending feature.

Please see how to get a loan on YouHodler here.

Step 5: Withdraw fiat to credit/debit card

By clicking on Credit Card, you will see the withdrawal form. Use this to add the amount you want to withdraw. It could be a whole balance or a fraction of it. Immediately below is the field where you input your credit card number and expiration date.

Withdrawals can be done only with debit and credit Visa and MasterCard cards. We DO NOT accept withdrawals to PREPAID and INSTANT cards.

Credit card withdrawals are near instantaneous. YouHodler will charge you a 5% commission (2 USD / 2 EUR minimum). The minimum amount is at least 10 USD / 10 EUR.
