Rocket Internet’s African booking portal Jovago has announced it has more than 2,000 hotels in Africa listed on its platform less than one year since it began operations.
The platform lists travel destinations and provides hotel information online.
“The first year of business is not yet finished and Jovago already offers the widest range of African hotels. With this broad selection of hotels to choose from, the online booking service provides its customers with the best hotel booking experience,” the company said.
“Jovago facilitates the booking process for its users with an informative, reliable and user-friendly service. The booking portal does not apply booking fees and the customer has the option to choose between paying at the hotel and using the secure online payment option.”
It also reported growth on its social media sites and expansion of its reach.
Marek Zmyslowski, managing director of jovago.com, said: “When we started the business in 2013 the African hotel market had not been shaped yet. It lacked in information supply and could not meet the increasing demand of business or leisure travelers searching for online bookings. Thanks to the launch of Jovago, we are now able to assure our visitors a great choice of hotels at the best available prices.
