Are you a frequent flier in and around the UK? A parking provider will now take your bitcoin. SkyParkSecure will automatically convert the fiat pricing of a parking ticket into Bitcoin for quicker and seamless payments directly from your cryptocurrency wallet.

Based in the North-West of England in Blackpool, SkyParkSecure doesn’t own or operate car parks but acts as a booking platform for airport parking and a host of other travel services including hotels and lounges. The parking provider claims to have facilitated over 1.6 million bookings on its website and ropes in customers with discounted rates.

Now, SkyParkSecure has laid claim to becoming the first independent UK travel company to accept bitcoin for airport parking.

Speaking to CCN, the platform’s content manager Niall Pailing stated:

In terms of which airports where the feature is available, I can tell you that bitcoin will be accepted at all 27 UK airports we sell parking for.

The parking provider points to the cryptocurrency’s growth in popularity over the last few years due to “it’s ease of use and improved security” compared to standard payment methods as reasons for enabling cryptocurrency payments.

“Although Bitcoin has not yet been widely adopted, we can see the future potential of such an innovative and secure method of payment,” stated the company’s managing director David Brown.

It is yet unknown if the parking provider is using the services of a bitcoin payment processor to enable payments. Naill assures CCN a response in this regard soon.

SkyParkSecure’s effort to enable cryptocurrency payments comes soon after a similar endeavor by Top Airport Parking, a US-based parking provider that began accepting Bitcoin and 25 other cryptocurrencies for parking at Denver International Airport this earlier month. The parent company of the stateside parking provider is aiming to launch cryptocurrency payments at 30 U.S. airports by the end of the year.
