Africa Internet Group (AIG)-owned hotel booking platform Jovago.com has partnered global hotel comparison website HotelsCombined.com to offer direct access between the two.
The partners said the collaboration was aimed at easing the hotel search and booking process for travellers, with visitors to HotelsCombined.com now able to gain direct access to Jovago.com’s selection of hotels across Africa.
“HotelsCombined is a remarkable tool for travellers around the world looking to make smart and informed decisions when planning and booking their trips,” said Paul Midy, chief executive officer (CEO) of Jovago.
“Jovago is focused on helping travellers find the best hotels no matter where they are and making the process as convenient as possible. We are very excited to be partnering with HotelsCombined to assist their users in creating memorable journeys, every time they travel.”
HotelsCombined has a database of over 800,000 properties globally and reaches out to 30 million people each month. Jovago has now added its hotel listings in Africa to the award-winning hotel comparison site.
HotelsCombined chief operating officer (COO) Hichame Assi said the partnership is an exciting endeavour for both companies.
“We’re pleased to be partnering with Jovago and further assisting travellers to get the best accommodation results. The number of travellers visiting African destinations continues to increase each year and more of our users are looking for accommodation in destinations that Jovago services through their local inventory,” he said.
“As a company we constantly strive to ensure that consumers get the most from their hotel booking by offering them the best hotel price comparison service possible. This partnership will help consumers to find the best holiday accommodation deals across Africa, at the best possible rate.”
