THE ONLY WAY TO GET THERE IS TO GO THERE !
A first for Travellers in South Africa is our 24 hour call line providing users with practical and emergency information for travel or accommodation related queries any time of the day or night. Based upon a system of 'Deals' (Deals Network TM) whereby every Client/Advertiser offers something 'extra' a 'good deal' to the user/traveller that they wouldn’t get from any other website.Go There will become the only way to easily plan your travels, accommodation, activities and fun in Southern Africa (soon to be in Australia)
If you are an establishment that relies on the travel / tourism industry to make a living, you would be well aware of the high costs implicated in advertising your business in some of the existing Backpacker & Travel publications. Go There has been developed by a team of people (Hostel/Travel Lodge owners and tour guides) who have been in the hospitality industry for many years and are well aware of the fluctuating realities of a seasonal tourism climate. For this reason Go There offers its clients sign up options to suit their budget. Market research has shown that the average annual subscription to these Backpacking travel publications costs between R6000 – R9000 per year, with many Hostels not covering their costs and some smaller publications and city guides are charging between R1000 / R2000 per block advert for just 3 months.
Go There is less expensive than these publications, by up to two thirds on its annual subscription,and, for those who can’t afford to pay a lump some upfront but can work a monthly payment into their budget scheme – Go There offers a monthly debit order option OR you can pay by credit card. Go There allows for change, unlike a number of other publications and websites where you only get one chance a year to put forward your business information, Go There releases it’s funky eco Newspaper Magazine twice a year and refreshes it’s website information quarterly. This makes it easy for clients to change rate info according to season, offer new deals and share any exciting new developments on their business profile.
How does it work?
Go There is the umbrella company for the Deals Network TM which at present consists of Backpacker Deals and Adventure Deals ( branching out next into Entertainment Deals then Safari Deals, Travel Deals, Car Hire Deals with many more to come. The website serves as the interactive source for all this information with a stylised functionality that operates in the same way for all the Go There Deals sites. This makes it easy for users to navigate their way around the web pages, with certain tabs, buttons and links remaining consistent throughout ( no more searching for the accommodation button amongst a myriad of articles and adverts). Every Backpacker in the country has a basic listing on the Go There Backpacker Deals website for free, making it the ultimate listing of Backpackers in the country. Only those who subscribe get a live link, their contact details, their own booking form and the thing every user will look for the 'Deals logo button' . The same will apply to the Adventure deals site and the two will be linked with a simple click.
- Go There Newspaper Magazine
Go There, Got Here is our funky eco Newspaper Magazine publication and will be similarly linked to the Go There website in style and format, and will serve as a more travel friendly version.
