We have certainly lived through unprecedented times, but the good news is that the times are changing for the better.
Here are just some of the reasons that we have to celebrate:
It is our Birthday
Travel Counsellors South Africa turns 15! We first entered the SA market in 2007. Ever since we have disrupted the travel industry and helped changed our franchisee's lives for the better.
Removal of PCR tests*
What great news that our President removed the requirement for *PCR tests on arrival in South Africa for all vaccinated travellers. Our industry truly understands the value of this!
Covid Travel Restrictions are being lifted
More countries are inviting South African travellers back. We are seeing an increase in the removal of travel bans, the need for quarantine, the removal of PCR tests and even the dropping of wearing masks in certain instances.
Pent-up demand for travel – Our Sales tell a story
We all missed travelling. For too long we have held onto travel memories from the past. We can now stop dreaming and take action to create new travel memories. Our sales numbers are proof of this travel demand. We have surpassed our pre-pandemic sales of 2019, which back then were at record levels! Plus, Corporate travel is back.
