What is a Travel Match Partner? We invite any tourism body or group to also be a part of our tourism business. Our travel partners benefit in more ways than one and its up to you as a partner to sell to these we introduce you to. Local and international suppliers are encouraged to join us as our buyers are both international and local.
As you know, Travel Match brings local and international buyers to you, the travel partner in more than one way.
Travel Partners can be a part of an educational which we run on weekends through 10 chapters – 9 provincial and 1 national. We run it on weekends so that our buyers have time to spend with you, the seller, rather than being on the phone or focussing on whats happening on the phone. Our buyers range from PCO’s to Secretaries who are in charge of travel arrangements, from the Marketing Executive to the PA at the Church head office booking church groups, from teachers at the local school looking for accommodation for sporting groups to Head Masters of private schools looking for his next school tour history week.
Once you complete the form and we know more about you and your business we also make suggestions.
Invitations such as those that are sent out to the Travel Agents and Media. Where preferential rates are offered at a rate that will definitely encourage those to visit in their personal capacity with a partner or their family. The number of invitations are managed through Travel Match who also manage the booking, payment etc as we offer points for booking of conferences and travel opportunities for colleagues or clients. The Travel Match travellers are also invited to travel with us overseas once they have booked local conferences etc with local partners. So they do have an incentive to buy what they visit.
Travel Partners are any of the following:
- Hotels / Hotel Groups
- Guest Houses
- Transfer or Tour Companies
- Airlines, Railroads, Cruiselines
