Here’s to something BRAND new!

posted in: ClickClickGo News | 0

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. ClickClickGo should be your one stop travel booking destination shop that is easy to use, safe and fast.  We wish to make travel fun, from the moment you book until your holiday starts!

We are very excited about this new venture and we hope that you will journey with us!  Make ClickClickGo your travel partner for all your travel needs! Find us at our new home – www.clickclickgo.co.za – bookmark this page today!  Also make sure to follow us on social media.  Hope to travel with you soon!

 

Become a pro-photographer with your phone

posted in: Travel Photography | 0

Our phones have become so clever over the years that lugging a huge camera around while on holiday is not necessary anymore.  Learn how to use your smartphone camera correctly and your friends will think you’re a budding pro-photographer!

Tip #1: Turn your phone on the side

Always turn your phone on its side, no matter what shot you’re taking.  It makes your photo appear bigger and will give you more room to play with when cropping or framing.

clickclickgo_travelphotography

 

Tip #2: Never put the object in the centre of the frame

Always use the rule of thirds.  Switch your phone camera’s grid lines on and always place the object on the interception of the lines.  The grid lines can be switched on under settings.  This will already make your photos look way more professional.  A handy tip to remember!

clickclickgo_travelphotography

 

Tip #3: Clean your lens!

Sticky and dirty lenses do not make the best photos.  Make sure to wipe that lens with a soft cloth before embarking on your photography mission.

clickclickgo_travelphotography

 

Tip #4: Sunset & sunrise are your friends

For the landscape shots of your life, always get up early or stay up late. The light and colours will be perfect for a winning photo.  You will also find less people around at those times giving you the perfect opportunity to take your time and get that shot.

clickclickgo_travelphotography

 

Tip #5: Keep STILL

You can’t fix a blurred picture.  Ever.  So keep your photo super sharp by holding your phone with both hands or leaning against a steady object in order to eliminate any possible shakes.  If your phone allows, rather use the volume button to take the picture OR use the self-timer.  Shooting the picture with the on-screen button might move the phone ever so slightly and ruin the shot.

clickclickgo_travelphotography

 

Tip #6: Never zoom

You have legs, use it.  The more you zoom, the further you reduce the quality of your shot.  Move closer to the object OR crop the image after taking the picture.

clickclickgo_travelphotography

Tip #7: Use filters

Photography apps were developed to make simple pictures look cool.  Use it.  Just guard against over-processing as this will make you picture look fake.  Use quality filters that enhance your image without making it look cheap.

clickclickgo_travelphotography

 

Tip #8: Say no to the selfie stick

Never use a selfie stick.  Unless you’re taking silly pictures of yourself.  When taking quality holiday shots, rather get a friend to take a picture for you.  The angle that is created by this stick is unnatural and gives your photo a weird look.

Kulula Airlines was founded in 2001, and flies to 6 key cities around South Africa from its flight hubs at OR Tambo International and Lanseria International Airports. The airline is headquartered in Kempton Park, Gauteng, and operates scheduled services to most major South African business hubs.  The airline’s branding is bold, and bright green, and their livery is frequently hilarious. As is to be expected aboard any low cost carrier, snacks and refreshments are available for purchase.
