Jumia Travel, positioning itself as Africa’s number one online travel agency, has announced that it has added more properties to its portfolio, now offering travellers a choice of 300,000 hotels across the world and 30,000 in Africa.
Jumia Travel says it is further solidifying its global presence in the hotel, travel and tourism sector, unveiling new continental and international destinations only four years since its inception in 2013. These include new properties in popular destinations in Africa including South Africa, Morocco, Egypt, and Tunisia, as well as outbound destinations including Dubai, London, New York, Paris, and Mecca among others.
The move is directed at enabling more Africans to expand their travel horizons both domestically and internationally. As part of the initiative, customers will have access to travel packages to the new destinations with 24/7 local customer service and expertise as well as flexible payment options including Mpesa, payment on arrival, and credit cards.
