Travel search platform, Cheapflights.co.za, has announced the launch of the inaugural Cheapflights South Africa Travel Awards, a new awards programme that celebrates the work and successes of the South African travel industry. The awards will recognise everything from the best local airports and airlines, to the best safari and wine farm offerings, and everything in between.
Cheapflights is now calling on South Africans to cast their votes for their favourite brands and businesses within the travel industry. Voters stand a chance to win a trip for two to Mauritius, and can cast their votes at www.cheapflights.co.za/travel-awards-2016.
Voting closes on 1 November 2016, with the best in each category being recognised at an awards ceremony in Cape Town at the end of November.
“The South African travel industry is a vibrant and exciting one,” explains Andrew Shelton, Managing Director of Cheapflights. “Not only is the country a must-visit for inbound international travel, but it also has a busy and constantly evolving domestic travel scene as well. The facilities and attractions are world-class, and we want to recognise and celebrate the businesses and organisations that are doing such amazing work.”
In order to shortlist the best finalists for the awards, Cheapflights partnered with the South African Travel Massive blogger community, which nominated the best offerings in each category.
The voting categories include Best Airport, Best Airline Lounge, Best African Airline, Best Domestic Airline, Best International Airline, Best South African Car Hire Provider, Best Attraction or Experience, Best Hotel Chain, Best Independent City/Boutique Hotel, Best Safari Lodge or Experience and Best Wine Farm Experience.
