From today you can book your apartment, house or villa on Adormo.com paying the deposit in Bitcoins!
The currency is gaining popularity but there are still relatively few places you can spend your bitcoins.
Today there’s one more we are happy to accept them!
How to pay for your booking in Bitcoins
It’s pretty simple, chose an apartment and when you are asked to pay here , let us know you wish to use Bitcoins, we will tell you the amount and you will send the money to our wallet.
Things to know
- You still need to pay the rest locally with a local currency (Euros or others, according to what the owner tells you).
- This is right now valid only when booking in
2) Any other Adormo site which sends you to pay here,
- We will apply Mt.Gox exchange rate as displayed in Blockchain.info
- We will give you 6 hours to pay. In those hours the value of bitcoin will probably increase/decrease a lot.
If it decreases (good for you) don’t worry and pay the same amount, you’ll save money. If it increases (bad for you) you can use them or if you prefer pay via Paypal, Skrill or Bank.
Flipkey, as many other portals now, lets you IMPORT your Google Calendar so you don’t need to manually update the Flipkey calendar every time you have a reservation/cancellation.
Unfortunately Flipkey does this differently from other systems as Airbnb.
Portals usually consider Nights
When you block your dates in Google Calendar, you usually block nights:
In this example the blocked nights are 10, 11 and 12. Check-out is on the 13th. So:
This is pretty simple to remember: you see 3 blocked nights on the calendar, you have blocked 3 nights in the apartment.
Most portals understand it this way.
In the previous article I was writing “The only missing city is Sottomarina/Chioggia, south of Venice.”
Well, no more!
Sottomarina is a beach resort and Chioggia is basically its old town resembling a lot to Venice.
Some use it as a base to explore Venice and the surroundings avoiding the crowds. Read the rest of this entry »
