In celebration of the best in South African travel – hotels, airlines, attractions and the people who make the Rainbow Nation so popular with travellers from across the world – Cheapflights.co.za has announced the launch of the inaugural Cheapflights South Africa Travel Awards, a new awards programme that recognises successes of the local travel industry.
Cheapflights is now calling on South Africans to cast their votes for their favourite brands and businesses within the travel industry. Plus, voters stand a chance to win prize trip for two to Mauritius, and can cast their votes at www.cheapflights.co.za/travel-awards-2016.
“The South African travel industry is a vibrant and exciting one,” explains Andrew Shelton, Managing Director of Cheapflights. “Not only is the country a must-visit for inbound international travel, but it also has a busy and constantly evolving domestic travel scene as well. The facilities and attractions are world-class, and we want to recognise and celebrate the businesses and organisations that are doing such amazing work.”
Cheapflights.co.za is building on its already substantial presence in South Africa, growing its South African unique users up from over 4.5million last year to more than 5.5million this year to date. “South Africa continues to be a growth market for us, and the Travel Awards are evidence of our commitment to the travel industry in this country,” continued Shelton.
Expanding on the partnership, as Chapter Leader of Travel Massive it was a pleasure for me to be involved, inviting the Travel Massive Africa community to curate the best of what South Africa has to offer. There is an abundance of choice in a country such as ours, but we all have our favourites, based on both personal and professional experiences, and will be voting to make sure they top the list. Exciting times indeed and I can’t wait for the Cheapflights South Africa Travel Awards winners to be revealed.
Voting closes on 1 November 2016, with the best in each category being announced at an awards ceremony in Cape Town on 24 November. Watch this spot for the results.
