SOUTH AFRICA IS AN AFFORDABLE DESTINATION
It is always best to make sure you have travel insurance (we provide this service) when travelling, in case of missed or cancelled flights, lost luggage and the like.
The South African currency is the rand and due to its low value, it makes it a favourable currency for most other visitors. South Africa only accepts rands, except during safari trips where tourist activities, park fees and service tips are usually paid in US dollars.
International credit/debit cards can be used in the country, although it is recommended that you enter the country with some cash to make your life easier upon arrival. In more remote areas, this will also be particularly helpful. American Express, Visa and Mastercard are all accepted.
On safari, entry into national parks and private reserves or concessions require a small fee per person. This is to assist in wildlife protection, including anti-poaching initiatives as well as community projects. These fees are organised and included in your travel package.
IE Travel Group is a member of Travel Trust Association (TTA) and has an ATOL license, which provides complete financial protection to our clients as well as stronger buying power to the company, thus enabling us to offer competitive rates to our clients.
We have partnered up with Responsible Tourism to ensure that we support community-based, sustainable and kind-to-the-planet travel.
As certified British Airways Operators, we get exclusive deals on all flights.
