Rocket Internet-backed Jovago, an online hotel booking platform has partnered with The Nigerian Tourism Development Corporation (NTDC) in a move the firms expect will boost Nigeria’s tourism industry.
NTDC has made Jovago.com their official hotel partner to ensure that Nigerians visiting the NTDC website can find and book from over 4,000 hotels across Nigeria already listed on Jovago.com. This would help NTDC promote Nigeria even more effectively and also provide valuable content for the official Nigerian Tourism website.
Mrs. Sally Mbanefo, the Director-General of the NTDC in a statement says, “We are very keen on this new partnership with Jovago.com. Not only is it targeted at promoting Nigeria’s thriving tourism sector and exhibiting the country’s potentials to Nigerians and the world at large, it also makes it easy for anyone visiting the official NTDC website to choose from the wide selection of hotels available on Jovago.com.”
Jovago.com as the official hotel partners of the NTDC will also provide the NTDC with online marketing expertise required to help boost tourism in Nigeria, one of the main goals of the NTDC. According to Marek Zmyslowski, Managing Director of Jovago.com, “Nigeria is a thriving tourist destination with a large number of tourist sites and attractions. Our aim is to make these places easily accessible to everyone in Nigeria by making it very convenient for people to find and book good hotels online”
Jovago now says it has over 5000 local listings across Africa.
