Flight Centre and Getlocal partner to sell tours and activities online
Getlocal Africa is thrilled to announce a partnership with the Flight Centre Travel Group, one of the leading travel companies in the world. The partnership will allow Flight Centre to sell Getlocal tours and activities on its digital platforms.
Flight Centre South Africa has established a strong reputation for innovation and customer experience within the fast-changing travel industry. The company is constantly seeking new ways to provide its customers with better services and a greater choice of products during their travel while enhancing its omnichannel experience. As a part of that initiative, Flight Centre identified an opportunity to include tours, activities, and experiences from around the world as part of its already extensive online offering of flights, hotels, car hire, and package deals. As an innovation leader in its own space, Getlocal was a natural choice of partner. The partnership with Getlocal and the implementation of the Go4IT white-label solution will allow Flight Centre to seamlessly integrate thousands of travel products from around the world into its digital platforms. South Africans will be able to easily book activities in major cities in Europe, Australia, the Middle East, Asia and the Indian Ocean Islands, as well as hundreds of local locations in Southern Africa.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Getlocal to enhance our online product offering to our customer,” says Ross Anderson, eCommerce Leader at Flight Centre South Africa. “Now our customers will be able to book their in-destination activities, tours and experiences through our, easy-to-use, new booking portal. All they have to do is go to www.flightcentre.co.za to view all the new activities over multiple destinations. Our local team based in Johannesburg has put together a brilliant collection of activities, experiences and tours that we believe will enhance Flight Centre’s value add to the travel industry.”
Explains James Elstob, CEO at Go4IT Africa.
