Africa’s N°1 Hotel Booking website, Jumia Travel has unveiled its money-back referral programme. This project gives customers the chance to earn additional income by providing friends and family an opportunity to book hotels on the Jumia Travel website.

October 23, 2015 Jumia Travel, Africa’s largest hotel-booking portal, is rewarding its customers with an opportunity to earn money through its landmark referral programme.

From a vast portfolio of 8,000 hotels in Nigeria and over 200,000 hotels around the world at the best prices possible, customers can now share hotel listings through unique links directly from their emails with N2000 airtime winnings guaranteed once friends complete the booking process.

This strategic partnership, which is the first of its kind in Nigeria’s hospitality industry is designed to support the creation of wealth opportunities for its large customer base.

Speaking on the launch of the programme, Paul Midy, chief executive officer of Jumia Travel said, “Our primary mission at Jumia Travel is to add value to the lives of customers and simplify the way we use the internet to engage in online transactions which is why we are excited to begin the referral programme and we look forward to building stronger relationships with our customers through this platform.”

With the successful introduction of the Travel.Jumia.com Hotels Booking app on Android devices in over 40 countries worldwide, as well as the grand unveiling of the company on Google Hotel Ads, the Referral programme is another step aimed at further improving the user experience for existing and potential clients.

As Nigeria sets a record with 93 million internet users in the second quarter of 2015, market observers are of the view that the full-scale adoption of money-making facilities such as the Jumia Travel Referral Programme across the country will drive the wider adoption of e-commerce services while enriching the lives of its customers.
