A tighter budget shouldn’t hamper South Africans’ desire to travel. We can still leave the African plains to follow those moments of wanderlust and experience the wonders of the world. The truth is, there are a number of countries that offer South Africans memorable and well-deserved holiday options without costing an arm and a leg. The first on our list of affordable countries for South Africans to travel to, is Dubai.
The July holiday period will soon be upon us, and if you’re thinking of taking your friends or loved ones on a winter trip, now is the time to get it booked, if you haven’t done so already. There are plenty of destinations spread across South Africa to take your well-deserved break in, that offer activities to suit every want or need. If you’re dreaming of snuggling up next to a fireplace with a glass of red wine, looking forward to getting your fill of nature on a mountain hike, or keen to spot and photograph the wonderful varieties of flora and fauna the country has to offer, there is a destination for you.
While the rain is coming down at right angles in Cape Town, and Johannesburg locals are shivering in icy temperatures, Durbanites are still going on day trips to the beach. Such is the balmy winter weather of this central KwaZulu-Natal city, and that’s what makes it the perfect place to escape to when you just can’t take the cold anymore. So book your flights to Durban, organise a Car Rental for your arrival, and make sure you’re protected with affordable Travel Insurance so you can enjoy fun in the sun with peace of mind.
As we head into autumn, Mother Nature will be treating us to a few more weeks of extra daylight, clear skies and warm temperatures. Why not take advantage of the glorious weather and have some fun in the sun with your loved ones. If you prefer to seek excitement away from home, Travel Insurance may be all you need to ensure that your family enjoys a worry-free trip.
Travelling around the world provides you with the opportunity to experience new cultures, see incredible sights, meet new people and, most importantly, sample new food! Yes, when you travel abroad not only do you feed your mind, but your stomach gets a healthy dose of adventure too.
The festive season is almost here, which for many of us means the chance to get away and refresh ourselves at the end of a long year. But, if you’re thinking of going overseas for the holidays, the South African Rand exchange rate is unfortunately about as weak as it’s ever been. With cost cutting on everyone’s mind, we’ve compiled a guide of overseas destinations that give you a few of the best value for your Rand options from a forex point of view.
It's day five of your dream holiday abroad. You've already gone on numerous sight-seeing excursions, sampled traditional cuisine, made new friends and uploaded tons of photos to social media.
When it comes to flights to remote destinations, nothing beats chasing the sun and skipping out on all the inconveniences of winter such as cold feet, and short days.
Winter is finally here and while most of us would prefer to rather withdraw into the warm depths of a blanket, there's really no need to give this season the cold shoulder.
It’s that time of the year again and we’re all suffering from holiday fever. Days at work have become unbearably long and we’re all counting the calendar days left of the year until we’re set to go on our annual leave.
A bucket list can contain experiences, achievements or even destinations people want to have or experience before they kick the proverbial “bucket”. Some people might add things like graduating from university, buying a house or bungee jumping.
