4 How it works
At the time of booking the system will communicate the deposit amount in your local currency to Bitpay.
Bitpay will convert this amount to Bitcoins and ask the guest for payment.
Once paid the Bitcoins will appear in your Bitpay account.
Bitpay offer the ability to instantly convert the Bitcoins into your local currency so you are not exposed to Bitcoin value fluctuations.
