To celebrate Tourism Month this September, South African tourism stakeholders are joining the Sho’t Left movement and creating value-for-money opportunities to encourage local travel.
Dream Hotels and Resorts will be joining Sho’t Left Travel Week, which takes place from 24 to 30 September, and is being run by South African Tourism to encourage airlines, hotel groups and tour operators to offer generous discounts to give South Africans access to travel, and expand the breadth of South Africa’s tourism offering more than ever before.
“Sho’t Left Travel Week is all about encouraging a behaviour of local travel among South Africans. Thousands of international tourists come to South Africa to explore all its diverse tourism offerings, but local travel is often limited to visiting friends and relatives, and concentrated in certain parts of the country,” says, Sharmila Ragunanan, Group Marketing Manager for Dream Hotels & Resorts.
With this in mind, Dream Hotels and Resorts is offering local travellers up to 30% off during Sho’t Left Travel Week at local properties.
Says Ragunanan: “We’re pleased to be involved in showcasing how South Africans can enjoy local travel in an affordable manner and hope our efforts will stimulate local travel to parts of the country in addition to the popular destinations of Durban and Cape Town.”
