More than 10 million South Africans travel locally every year. Sho’t Left’s Travel Week is an initiative designed to showcase a range of affordable local experiences.

Every member of the tourism sector is invited to upload deals of up to 50% off, which will be available to the public during Travel Week, 5-11 September 2022. This serves as a powerful incentive for first-time travellers, as well as for regular travellers looking to dip their toes into new destinations and activities.

WHO CAN REGISTER?

Registrations are open to all trade members. South African Tourism encourages everyone from accommodation, airlines, car rental and transfer companies to museums, activities, and experiential businesses to register their deals for this year’s Travel Week.

WHY SHOULD YOU REGISTER?

Travel Week aims to maximise value and return on investment for all participating members. The initiative is backed by significant investment from South African Tourism. The result is a powerful platform with a strategically targeted, multi-channel marketing plan to optimise exposure and generate excitement around the best local deals.
