Black Friday For e-Travel

The Black Friday shopping season isn’t just a time for shopping for tangible products, such as electronics, gadgets, household items, groceries, or health and fitness. Providers of intangible products such as hotels and airlines also leverage the Black Friday frenzy to attract traffic.

Often times, they do this through a marketplace that channels a constant heavy flow of customers to their businesses. Examples of such marketplace will include Bookings.com, Amadeus, and more locally, Jumia’s hotel & flight marketplace, among others.

A lot of Nigerians love to travel towards the end of the year. Although, in the past, we saw most people travelling out of the country for holidays. However, there’s a rapidly growing trend of Nigerians travelling within Nigeria for vacation. There’s no better time to tour the exciting destinations within the country than during the Black Friday seasons. The reason is simple: most hotels and airlines fares are more affordable at this time.

The rapid rise of the digital tour operators, such as Social Prefect, Irin Ajo, Unravelling Nigeria, TVP Adventures among others, is resuscitating the deadening interest of some Nigerians to holiday within the country.

To be fair, there are many choice destinations to explore — from Kajuru Castle to Obudu Cattle Ranch to Olumo Rock and many more.

However, travelling to some of these destinations might be a bit pricey. Hence, the need to take advantage of travel deals, coupons, and discounts that will be offered during the upcoming Black Friday campaign by this local flight and hotel marketplace owned by Jumia. In all honesty, Jumia has committed itself to promote domestic tourism through its various initiatives such as the Nigeria Travel Awards, Hospitality Report, and many more.
