TRAVELSHOPPE: Travelshoppe launches first online flight price checker

Travelshoppe in Nairobi is the first travel agent in Kenya, if not East Africa, to offer their clients online flight booking facilities with full agency support and back up. Through the new service dubbed ‘Flight Price Checker’, clients can compare flights and prices for their destination through the company’s new web-based portal which gives them a variety of airline options to choose from. The system then filters out the cheapest flight for the preferred date and departure time. The online payment option is secured by the latest technology too, giving clients a number of options on how to make payment, be it credit or debit card, money transfer or the increasingly more popular, M-Pesa mobile money transfer.

The new facility will allow Travelshoppe clients to make bookings at a time convenient to them online, and although the regular booking fee will apply, it will also guarantee them the full service of the travel agency’s resources and back up, as if they had come to the shop in person, or called in by phone.

Online booking is clearly the way forward for travel agencies to stay relevant and serve their clients by embracing technology with ‘real service’ as a valued add-on.
