In the Swiss luxury and lifestyle hotel The Chedi Andermatt guests can now pay with two of the most popular cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin and Ethereum.
With the introduction of this innovative new payment option The Chedi Andermatt is offering another modern technology to its guests. The implementation is in partnership with payment service provider Worldline and the Swiss cryptocurrency service provider Bitcoin Suisse. www.thechediandermatt.com
Attractive, safe and convenient payment – four years ago The Chedi Andermatt first started thinking about accepting cryptocurrencies as a service to guests. However, in order for this to happen the transactions needed to be made as secure as possible and risky rate fluctuations needed to be circumvented.
With WL Crypto Payments from Worldline, these conditions have now been met. As an innovative hotel partner, The Chedi Andermatt is one of the first select Swiss hotels with Worldline cryptocurrency infrastructure at the front desk.
“We’ve known for a long time that cryptocurrencies have a future in the hotel business. As cryptocurrency payments become ever more widespread and gain ever more acceptance, we are proud to be one of the first Swiss luxury hotels to offer guests secure cryptocurrency payment options. This makes a clear statement to our clientele that we are open to new technologies, as we offer this new payment experience as an additional service,” explains Jean-Yves Blatt, General Manager of The Chedi Andermatt.
Starting at an amount of CHF 200.00 hotel guests can pay at the front desk of The Chedi Andermatt with Bitcoin and Ethereum just as easily as they can with conventional means of payment. WL Crypto Payments lets hotels accept payments in cryptocurrencies without subjecting guests to volatility risk, as the crypto transactions are immediately converted into Swiss francs following confirmation.
“Worldline enables acceptance of all national and international means of payment and provides the latest payment technology in the interest of a smooth payment experience for guests. Recently we added cryptocurrencies at the POS to the means of payment we cover. We’re very glad that The Chedi Andermatt as an industry leader is now joining this exciting new development,” said Marc Schluep, CEO of Worldline Switzerland.
Following the launch of the new cryptocurrency payment option at The Chedi Andermatt, further crypto projects are planned together with Bitcoin Suisse.
