Online hotel booking site Jovago has added M-Pesa to its payment options and introduced a Resident Rate scheme with discounts for local and business travelers to encourage more Kenyans to travel around their country.
JOVAGO says it’s promoting around 1,000 Kenyan hotels of which many offer great discounts on prevailing Resident Rates. Users only need to visit the Jovago.com website, choose the hotel they want and pay with Safaricom’s M-PESA via Pay Bill number 838350.
Estelle Verdier Watine, M.D JOVAGO East Africa said, “This is a great leap not only for JOVAGO as a company but also Kenya as a whole as we join national efforts for example #TembeaKenya, whose main aim is to see more Kenyans embrace local tourism and celebrate our country’s heritage. We have plenty affordable offers and partnerships with different properties that will allow all Kenyans to go on holiday within our borders at very friendly discounts”
She carried on stating that the company’s main goal is to make JOVAGO the go-to website for anyone looking to have a good time in Kenya regardless of location, preference and budget.
