Travelstart, a Nigerian online travel agency, says customers will enjoy a 25% discount on all local flights between February 19 and December 31st, 2019.
Themed, ‘Based on Logistics’, the agency said it is looking to ease the financial burden of travel due to the postponement of the general elections.
“From 19-21 February 2019, all local flights booked on the Travelstart platform will be discounted by up to 25%. The travel period is not solely for the upcoming election weekends, but it is open until the end of the year, 31 December 2019,” Travelstart said in a statement.
“For customers who want to voluntarily change their flights from departing or arriving on February 23, 2019, and March 9, 2019, Travelstart is waiving its admin fee. This is to further reduce the cost and the impact the postponement has had on many travel plans.
“Though customers may still be liable for any airline penalties and ticket price differences, Travelstart will work with all its customers to minimize these necessary fees.”
Speaking about the campaign, Bukky Akomolafe, commercial manager, Travelstart Nigeria, said: “At Travelstart, we empathize with our customers and the financial burden that the additional travel expenses may have.
“We care very much about their welfare, which is why we have put together this campaign, especially at such crucial time. We are also extending our working hours on Friday to enable us treat all incoming customer requests.”
