Here’s to something BRAND new!

posted in: ClickClickGo News | 6

Notice anything different?  No, you’re not in the wrong place. Airlines SA has made way for a new online travel booking destination. From now on you will use ClickClickGo for all your travel booking requirements, whether local or international!

Why a re-brand you may ask?

Besides the fact that Airlines SA was in need of a serious makeover, the brand was also expanding rapidly, which called for a more flexible solution to allow for future services that our customers might require. The Airlines SA brand was quite limiting in terms of future expansion and with a few new plans up our sleeves, we needed a one brand umbrella to accommodate these. We want to make travel bookings easy and for that you need one destination.

The time was right to update the brand, change its name and give it a fresh brand new look, including a new logo and brand colours, as well as a completely new brand identity. The screaming pink is happy, vibrant and modern, because planning a trip shouldn’t be all serious!

Why ClickClickGo?

Whether we like it or not, most things these days happen with a click or two.The internet rules our lives – we shop, we read, we play, we communicate, we pretty much run our lives through the clicking of buttons!  Click, click, click click. The click is powerful. Day to day tasks like banking and shopping have become easier and quicker to manage, and travel should be no different. We felt that the name ClickClickGo will resonate with travelers, make it easier to remember and will position itself as the top of mind destination for any upcoming trips.

The name also conveys the simplicity of using our services and illustrates that it’s safe, fast and reliable, as easy as click, click and go!  ClickClickGo is a friendly modern brand, accessible to people from all walks of life, whether you travel for business or pleasure. We want the new brand to tie in with our company values as well as the customers we serve and we trust that it will do just that.

If ClickClickGo was a person

This brand is young at heart, adventurous and dynamic. We are serious about work and play!  We’re positive about the future and encourage others to learn through experience. It’s someone you can talk to, a friend and confidant, someone that always wants to help and assist. ClickClickGo is not complicated and you can always feel safe in its presence!

What makes ClickClickGo great!

When you use ClickClickGo, we want your interaction with our brand to be a positive experience. We therefore endeavour to make the booking processes as quick, safe and simple as possible and to provide the best customer service we can.  Above all, we want to bring you the best travel deals around to ensure you have some money left in your pocket for the fun part of the trip!

Watch this space…

The new ClickClickGo brand opens up so many new possibilities!  Our aim is to, in time, expand our product offering to include other travel booking services that you might require.

For that reason, ClickClickGo wants to make purchasing your flights online as easy and straightforward as possible.

As soon as you have decided on a great destination, international or local, you are all set to book those flights. Booking flights online is actually very simple, as long as you have all the relevant information at hand.

Flight and passenger details

To book your flights online, you are going to need some simple info like where you are flying to and the travel dates.  You will also need some personal information as it willo make this process super quick, have the following ready:

  • Trip details – Dates of travel, specific airline if necessary, destination and nr of travellers

BOOK FLIGHTS NOW

Domestic flights

To book a local flight in South Africa, you only need your ID nr to do it.  If you’re over the age of 16, you’ll need an ID book or driver’s licence and your booking reference nr to board a flight.  Passengers younger than 16 will have to have written permission from their parents/guardians and a birth certificate.

International flights

When traveling overseas, you are going to need to show your valid passport at the check in counter plus any visa that the country you are flying to may require.

Make sure you passport is still valid for 3 – 6 weeks after your return to South Africa as many countries won’t accept an invalid one.

Do I need a passport when booking my flights?

No, you won’t need a passport at this stage, but you will need it when booking flight packages and upon check-in.

If you do require a visa, you will need to complete your passport number on the forms as well as provide a certified copy thereof.  Make sure your name is displayed everywhere exactly as it appears on your passport!

What if I’m booking a flight for someone else?

To book a flight for someone else is really easy as all the same information will be required.  As soon as the booking is made, you can send them all the information so that they have this for reference.

Payment

There are many ways with which you can pay for your online flights:

  • EFT
  • SID Instant EFT
  • Online credit/debit card payment
  • Cheque
  • Bank money deposit

When paying by credit card, you will need the name on the card, your account number as well as the 3 digit security code on the back.

Do I need to print my ticket?

Luckily you don’t need a print out of this ticket.  Upon check-in you will only need an ID book or driver’s licence and a booking reference number.  For international flights, you will need your passport and any visas required. .

Some international airlines will advise to take along a print out of your ticket to avoid long queues.  This is up to you.

You can also make use of the self service kiosks at the airport to print out your boarding passes.  You simply enter your flight booking reference nr or scan your passport.  These days your boarding pass can also be downloaded onto your phone or emailed to you.

Where do I get my ticket?

There are many options of ways to get your tickets once you’ve bought them.  Nowadays, it’s really popular to have your ticket emailed to you so you can print it at home.  You can also collect your tickets from the check-in counter upon checking in your luggage.

Visa-free countries (less paperwork)

The truth of the issue is the fact that visas are usually fairly pricey, and the additional paperwork when planning a trip and booking flights could be a nightmare. Particularly so when all you need to do is actually pack your flipflops and swimsuit and board a plane!  Here is a link to a list of countries that is visa-free for South Africans.

Some of these countries include:

Botswana
Reunion Island
Tanzania
Indonesia
Hong Kong
Argentina
Colombia
Republic of Ireland
Peru
Brazil
