FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Travelstart Launches Online Travel Website in Namibia

Travelstart has launched its groundbreaking online travel services in Namibia, enabling the growing internet audience in Namibia to compare, book and pay for the cheapest air tickets online.

Travelstart Namibia offers travellers an end-to-end platform on which to book and pay for international and domestic flights (including low cost carriers), car rental and accommodation. By comparing all the flight prices on the website, customers can find the cheapest airfares available for their route. The flight prices are displayed in real time and include all taxes and fees.

The Namibian website is fully supported and serviced by the South African call centre, comprised of customer services, customer relations, ticketing and refunds. Travellers, as well as visitors to the website, will have easy access to this support team via telephone, online chat and e-mail.

How to Book Flights Online

Finding the itinerary that best suits the traveller is easy with the website’s user-friendly interface. Cheapest flights are displayed first and customers can further refine their itinerary in order to find the arrangement that best suits them and their budget.

Payment on the website can be made by credit card and via EFT or cash at any Nedbank branch in Namibia. The website accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Diners Club payments and is certified by Thawte.

Travelstart is the market leader in South Africa with an average number of 20 000 visitors per day. This success is largely due to the enormous benefits it offers travellers. It is convenient and cost-effective to book flights online.
