AT&T Group of Companies has re-launched its travel business company, AT&T Travel following the economic impact brought by the outbreak of COVID-19. AT&T, like other parties, was not spared from the economic burden that came with the pandemic.

The travel agency has been in business since 2019. Speaking at the re-launch ceremony on Thursday, AT&T Group of Companies’ director, Abel Monnakgotla said the travel agency has steadily recovered from the impact of COVID-19 and hence the need to raise awareness about its existence in the market. The company offers amongst others, airline reservations, air travel insurance, VISA application assistance services, hotel bookings and holiday packages. Monnakgotla revealed at the ceremony that AT&T Travel went into a partnership with South African travel consortium, Tourvest.

He said the partnership will help broaden the travel destination offered by AT&T Monnakgotla aiding in giving the best services to potential clients. “We are part of a group called Tourvest. In this industry as you go in expos like World Tourism Market, you would know that you cannot operate in silo. You need to partner with a lot of travel agencies, you need to belong to a group that holds hotels across the world, car rentals. This is also to make sure we heavily participate in the SADC industry,” Monnakgotla said. Tourvest hosts over 100 travel agencies in South Africa and the region and AT&T Travel will enjoy unfettered access to regional markets, such as South Africa, Namibia among others.
