As well as ensuring your health and wellbeing by putting strict health & hygiene protocols in place for all those coming in contact with travelling guests, we also offer financial peace of mind when booking with Safari 365 during the Coronavirus pandemic. Here’s why.
1. Our track record speaks volumes
Having been in business for nearly 15 years with countless thousands of travellers entrusting us, we have experienced a number of crises, both local and international, and have never defaulted in delivering the planned clients itinerary. Our well capitalized conservative approach to money management means our business, and your holiday booking, remain secure.
2. Reduced Deposit Terms
Whilst many other operators are still requiring 30% deposit to secure your holiday arrangements, we have reduced our deposit requirement to 25% in line with market conditions (certain suppliers may require additional deposits which will be detailed at the time of booking.)
3. Booking Flexibility
We are tirelessly working with our tourism partners to ensure maximum flexibility to postpone confirmed bookings. We have also introduced a free postponement guarantee, for all new bookings, should your travel plans be affected by Covid-19.
Long standing supplier relationships and business volume
We are one of Africa’s leading tourism businesses, and in our consortium business we are the single biggest purchaser of bed nights in African travel. The result is excellent supplier financial due diligence and working relationships, allowing us to provide you with flexibility and certainty in your booking arrangements.
Committed currency pricing
We recognise excessive exchange rate fluctuations in these uncertain economic times. We are the only company in Africa to have de-risked your holiday investment to currency fluctuations by committing to a price in either AUD, USD, GBP or EUR.
Affiliations and associations
We are long standing members of the Southern African Tourism Services Association and offer protection via the SATSA bonding scheme. We are in this business for the long run, and maintain sufficient levels of General Public Liability insurance, whilst including Emergency Evacuation Insurance complimentary to every one of our travellers.
In short, we are structured and prepared to see out the current crisis, and have no reason to believe we will not be able to deliver on your dream holiday in 2021, or for that matter 2022 and beyond!
