“As predicted by the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), by 2030, the new middle class will have grown by 1.5 billion, thereby doubling the number of international travelers. A gradually improving world economy has propelled corporate travel, while the growing middle class has increased the prospects of first-time visitors as well as visiting friends and families (VFR) across the world” Commenting on the newly launched service, Jumia Travel’s CEO Paul Midy said.

As part of the initiative, customers will have access to travel packages covering the new destinations; with 24/7 local customer service and flexible payment options including Mpesa, payment on arrival, and credit cards.

The packages will consist of hotel stays, return flight tickets, tours or excursions upon request and availability. They exclude Visa processing fees, travel insurance, among other activities not mentioned above.
