Saad also mentioned that the customer’s flight tickets purchases have increased by 263%.
The base of customers is growing at similar rates as the number of the website visitors has reached about 200,000 in 2104, said the Regional Manager of Travelstart.
The company provides modern and innovative services and “tourist programmes” to meet the aspirations and needs of travellers, especially the young who prefer to handle things via email rather than the traditional methods, according to the regional manager.
“In 2014, the company’s sales reached a growth of 300% in comparison to the year 2013; and that’s just the beginning. We expect more successes next year with the continued of growth in the tourism movement in the region,” according to Saad.
Travelstart continues with the same high growth rates achieved in 2014, as the performance rates during the first three months of this year indicate.
This is also with regards to the doubling of the company’s sales, the number of visitors as well as the number of the new clients within the first quarter of this year compared with the same period last year, Saad said without providing any growth rates.
He attributed this to the high brand awareness of Travelstart Egypt during the last period of time in addition to the enormous growth in the number of visitors on the social networks.
