Our vibrant company culture is kept alive by the 4 core values we live by…
Embrace artful simplicity in every task you take on, with the team and the Travelstart customer in mind
Listen. Action feedback. Go over and above. The Travelstart experience is both efficient and enjoyable.
Challenges exist yet creativity comes from necessity. Stay agile and seize opportunities in adversity.
To succeed against all odds, to make travel simple, we are always challenging ourselves and the norm.
Founded in Sweden in 1999, Travelstart is the brainchild of entrepreneur, former DJ and family man Stephan Ekbergh. In true start-up fashion, Sweden’s first online travel agency was initially run from an old coffee roastery in Helsingborg. Nearly two decades, plenty of learning, growth and one African immigration later, Stephan still heads up Travelstart from sunny South Africa.
Now based in Cape Town, Travelstart operates in 18 countries with offices in other core markets including Nigeria, Egypt and Dubai. With the Travelstart Group including SafariNow, NightsBridge and Hepstar, our travel family is now comprised of over 400 staff from 38 nationalities, all passionate about making travel simple in Africa and the Middle East.
