Every day, we always read about Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and all other major cryptocurrencies in the market today. But more often, it is always in the light of whether a particular crypto went up or down in value. The reason, of course, is because cryptocurrencies, for all their touted benefits, are still used primarily as an investment medium (buy low, sell high). Not really something that you use for pleasure or convenience.
Well, that is not the case for Mr. Georg Egger, a German businessman who travelled from Germany to Singapore with his daughter using only cryptocurrency – the Ducatus Coin.
For many of us, travel is one of the most leisurely and fun things to do. But not as many enjoy the process of booking an airline ticket, searching for good places to go (and eat), finding a hotel that is good and convenient, and a thousand other things that you need to do before you actually go and start enjoying your overseas vacation. Georg is one of those people. So, what he did was book his entire trip through Ducatus Travel. Aside from hassle-free booking, Ducatus Travel also accepts major cryptocurrencies (such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ducatus Coin, etc.) for payment.
Ducatus Global, a Singapore-based fintech company, is behind Ducatus Coin (DUC), one of the fastest-growing cryptocurrencies in the world. It is probably the only crypto company in the world that has a network of existing functional bricks and mortar businesses where users can use their cryptocurrency in the same way that they use their more conventional dollars or euros. One of these bricks and mortar businesses is Ducatus Travel.
We had a chance to interview Mr. Georg Egger during his trip to Singapore. Below are the highlights of our chat with him:
How do you find Singapore? Any interesting experience you had so far?
Georg: I find the people here very friendly. It is very clean and the people are well-dressed. Not every Metro with a big city do you see so many well-dressed people as you see here in Singapore. I have a positive impression and it’s really interesting for us to be here. Just two days ago, I also met an old friend whom I haven’t seen for 30 years! I met him at Fullerton Hotel as he works there now and we had a very good time catching up. He even treated us to a nice dinner complete with a majestic view of Singapore. Truly an unforgettable experience.
Tell us about your experience travelling from Europe to Singapore using Ducatus Travel.
Georg: When I learned that Ducatus Travel offers a trip to Singapore, I immediately decided to book a trip because Singapore is a wonderful city and I always wanted to visit it. Plus, my daughter’s Birthday is coming so I gave it to her as a birthday gift. I would say that our experience has been absolutely wonderful! Ducatus Travel booked one of the best airlines in the world for us – Qatar Airways – and we were checked-in at a nice hotel. In addition, the itinerary that has been prepared for us during our stay here has been fantastic, so my daughter and I are very grateful.

What made you decide to book your vacation through Ducatus Travel instead of using other travel agencies?
Georg: Firstly, I am convinced of Ducatus as an excellent service provider. Secondly, Ducatus Travel accepts cryptocurrencies as payment so being an owner of cryptocurrency myself, it just made a lot of sense for me.
As a Ducatus Network member, would you encourage other members to also book their next vacation using Ducatus Travel?
Georg: Absolutely! For all Ducatus Network members, I would say that this is a very good way to spend your shopping account and you get to enjoy amazing vacation. If you’re going to travel anyway, it’s best to book your trip through Ducatus Travel.

Would you consider using Ducatus Travel again in your next trip?
Georg: Most certainly. This time around, I’m travelling with my daughter. Next time, I plan to come here with my wife.
