The GTA Story: Part Two

Planning your itinerary can be the most stressful and time-consuming part of going on holiday. Global Travel Alliance (GTA) is committed to alleviating all your travel concerns by offering valued members wholesale travel-related services from preferred suppliers locally and internationally.

From planning and booking accommodation to getting picked up to return to the airport – GTA ensures that your travels happen seamlessly, safely and affordably!

Members can enjoy the benefits of quality accommodation and other miscellaneous travel services at “nett rate” including, massively discounted rates on cruises, preferential agreements on car hire, and travel insurance year-round, all at very affordable prices. Our expansive range of travel products cover all your travel needs (excluded: discounts on campsites, caravan parks and some guesthouses.) Our members can also utilise self-catering timeshare units through us, cheaper than timeshare owners pay themselves.

Previously, our members had the additional benefit of discounted flights. Airline business models evolved and changed to offer discounted prices online directly to the public, eliminating any commission to travel agents.  Thus, eliminating our discounts. We felt it was crucial to keep our promise to our members. We quickly used this as an opportunity to do what we do best – adapt, innovate and improve – by offering no administration fees, which all other travel agencies charge.

Members receive a variety of exclusive benefits included in our service packages. If you log into, as a member, you will receive access to private members-only specials on our travel products offered around the world. Due to our agreements with suppliers, only members can log onto the website to see the specials available at “cost price”. You will also find the latest travel news and last-minute specials on our social media platforms to fully prepare for your holiday. We will keep you informed with up-to-date information regarding worldwide travel restrictions and regulations to keep you safe on your holiday, which we know is extremely important to you.

What would a holiday be without being in the company of your loved ones? At GTA, we care for you and your family! Your family and friends could receive the same benefits and discounts as the principal GTA member by using your annual ‘Guest Certificates’. Members of GTA are issued a specific amount of Guest Certificates, dependent on the package purchased. Once a year, these certificates may be redeemed as the ideal gift to pass on to your loved ones to use for weddings, family holidays, or to allow them to follow their wanderlust, much like GTA members have the privilege of doing.

At GTA, our travel consultants work as your Personal Travel Assistants (PTA) to offer you personalized services through our direct line. As a GTA member, you can expect to receive bespoke itineraries designed around your specific travel needs. To ensure the holiday of your dreams, your PTA is on call for any booking requests, advice, or travel-related inquiries.

Your safety when traveling is a significant concern to us at GTA. Our PTAs have your best interest at heart, especially during these uncertain and tumultuous times. We offer our members emergency after-hours service in the evenings and on weekends and use our Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Database to store and manage your personal and contact details. It is not only essential to us that we send you on a fantastic holiday, but that we bring you and your families home safely.

Our extensive databases and QuickTrav system stores and retrieve your personal and contact information including your travel history booked through GTA. The Quicktrav system allows PTAs to show you exactly where and how much money you have saved using our services. GTA can maximize your experience by guiding you to make significant savings in the future when using our products. Our Guaranteed Savings Principle means that members can upgrade a 2-3 star holiday to a 4-5 star one by using their original travel budget. We are committed to providing our globetrotting members with nothing but the best wherever they go.

If you thought we were just another travel agency, think again. We are the largest travel club in Africa and the Southern Hemisphere with over 60 000 members. Our goal is to ensure that you receive the highest quality service from our preferred suppliers. There will be nothing to worry about except which bikini and sunglasses to pack for your trip!

Members earn #MoreForLess when they allow us to guide them effortlessly on the holiday of their dreams.
