kulula introduces ‘combine & save’ travel packages
Johannesburg, 23 October 2012: Today, in another first for airlines in South Africa, kulula has launched a ‘combine & save’ option on kulula.com, which allows customers to combine various travel elements, build their own tailored packages and enjoy significant savings.
Via the ‘combo’ option on kulula.com, customers can now book any combination of ‘flight+car’; ‘flight+hotel’ or ‘flight+hotel+car’ at the lowest rates and instantly see how much they save.
Erik Venter, CEO of Comair says, “kulula.com is evolving to become more than just an airline, but a one-stop-online-shop for all travel requirements. With our ‘combo’ option we hope to make planning a trip, for business or leisure, as simple and affordable as possible.”
Based on the customer’s desired search, kulula.com will trawl through over 1 000 hotels across South Africa, 34 car rental branches and all available kulula flights to return instantly packaged results - which show how much is saved by comparing the costs of booking the products separately.
Once a package option is selected, these combos can be customised to suit specific travel needs – whether it’s upgrading the car, selecting a deluxe suite at the hotel, or choosing flight departure times on all kulula flights.
All product availability is presented in real-time – so there’s no waiting to find out if the desired products are available. Tailor-made packages can be booked, secured and paid for immediately online with a credit card.
