For South African travellers, particularly those with a penchant for flying, it is surely music to your ears any time you stumble across an affordable local service… Fortunately – while I have yet to fly myself (though it’s definitely on my travel bucket list!) – I know that, through African travel industry leader, Travelstart, both local travellers, like myself, and international visitors to SA shores can enjoy securing cheap domestic flights, thanks to Africa’s pioneering online travel agency.
So, while the lingering, almost unanimous feeling across South Africa remains that access to low-cost flights is simply wishful thinking, or reserved only for the working (read: corporate/business folk) or wealthy… In truth, it is more a case of who you book through, rather than where you want or need to go, that can make – or break – your budget.
Based in the marvellous Mother City of Cape Town, Travelstart have, since their establishment in 1999, been consistently reputable on a local level, providing travel enthusiasts with easy, quick access to some of South Africa’s best travel experiences.
While Travelstart has certainly always been loved for their hotel bookings, vacation packages and other exciting travel-related offerings (personally, I particularly love browsing their blog for my travel inspiration and insight into the local travel scene!) – they have started to become increasingly handy when it comes to securing safe, reliable and efficient flights too.
This means that, irrespective of whether you are flying for business or leisure, you can easily book through Travelstart and secure instant, easy and above all, affordable flights, spanning across all leading domestic destinations and major cities in South Africa, from Cape Town to East London and beyond.
And the best part of all? As they have diligently partnered with various leading South African airlines, like Mango, Kulula, Flysafair and SA Express (to name only a few), you can safely and securely spread your wings further than ever before.
So whether you are keen to head to balmy Durban to soak up the sun year-round, embark on country fun in gorgeous George where you can, among other things, immerse yourself in natural beauty at nearby Victoria Bay – or make your mark in Johannesburg as an aspiring entrepreneur, with Travelstart, affordable domestic flights – and lasting travel memories – are only a few clicks away – and I know that, for myself, when I do book my first flight, I won’t be looking anywhere else…
