Travelstart Egypt celebrates fifth birthday

Travelstart Egypt

Marking a significant milestone, Travelstart Egypt is celebrating five years of successful operations.

Recognised by Amadeus as one of the top 10 travel agencies in the country, the company has adopted a range of new services and benefits for its customers, in addition to allowing them to search, compare and book the best travel deals.

The agent additionally offers its clients an online booking option, which is supported by highly trained travel consultants seven days a week from 09:00 until 22:00.

Country manager, Travelstart Egypt, Ahmed Saad enthused on the five-year anniversary: “Travelstart Egypt has enjoyed incredible success over the past five years and has continually raised service standards throughout that time, introducing new features, services and partnerships for the benefit of our customers. We’re also grateful to Amadeus, National Bank of Egypt and our airline partners for supporting us in our efforts to ‘raise the bar’ for travel service standards in Egypt.”

Although Egypt’s tourism industry has faced numerous obstacles over the last five years, Travelstart Egypt has witnessed healthy growth and has continued to introduce new services since its launch in 2013.

The agent now offers both Arabic and English portals, and encourages travel consultants to sell affordable flights via its Travelstart neXt platform. Clients are now allowed to input frequent flyer membership numbers when booking a flight, to ensure they don’t miss out on the chance to earn air miles. Improvements have also been made to Travelstart Egypt’s FLAPP app, allowing travellers to use a +/- 3-day calendar functionality on international flights, to find the best prices on and around their ideal travel dates and schedule. FLAPP users are now able to book online and pay offline.

Travelstart Egypt is currently in the midst of a major update to its Arabic portal, while plans are in place to allow customers to pay in installments.

Saad concluded: “Travelstart launched in Egypt with a strategy to target progressive travellers looking for convenient online services to simplify their travel bookings. Through our ongoing investment in technology, new services and user experiences, Travelstart Egypt has been able to drive strong growth while exciting and delighting its customer base.”
