e-Commerce across Africa gathers pace as new deals are signed


(Posted 29th March 2015)

Africa’s top hotel booking platform has just signed up for a deal with Trivago, the world’s leading hotel search and price comparison site, to add yet more oomph to their services and provide their clients with the arguably best tool to find and book hotels at the best possible tariffs available.

In turn will Trivago users get access to over 20.000 hotels, resorts and safari lodges across Africa.

Both sides expressed their confidence that by joining hands the two companies will provide a unique service which will not only benefit travelers but also the hotels which have signed up with them as greater exposure to the market normally means more business: ‘We are happy to be able to provide African travelers with a great extensive inventory, making their search for an ideal hotel even easier’ said Aline Koekkoek, Sales Manager of Trivago, while Estelle Verdier, Managing Director for Jovago East and Southern Africa responded that ‘The partnership with Trivago will make it easier and cheaper for customers to find accommodation and travel to Africa. The collaboration assures more visibility to our partnering hotels and definitely support the growth of the tourism industry in Africa’.

As the world’s largest hotel search site does Trivago presently compare 718,589 hotels from over 200 hotel booking sites with the intent to findthe ideal property for travelers at the lowest possible rate. Jovago.com under the newly signed deal contributes to this existing selection by adding its verified hotel listings in Africa, now standing at over 20.000 across the continent.
