Travel sales - where to find South Africa's best flights and hotel discounts

more than a year ago
Across the world in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic tourism is currently in a state of immense change. From hotel resorts and safari lodges to local and international airlines, the major realignment in global travel patterns can be felt across the industry. Our skies may never be as busy as they were before the pandemic, but one thing is for sure, after months of lockdown the world is ready to travel again.

Airlines are already jostling to ensure that they offer the best routes at accessible enough prices to guarantee they can fill planes once they are allowed to fly again, while we have never seen such incredible deals on luxurious safari experiences.

Of course there is still uncertainty out there, however, if you are a savvy traveller who is ready to plan ahead, now is the time to pick up some amazing deals. As the world gradually opens up and we look ahead to the South African summer holiday season, we are keeping a close eye on the best travel sales currently out there and updating this feature regularly to help you take advantage of the best special offers and discounts.
