The uncertainty of the last year has shown the importance of travel agents in 2021.

1. Use our First-Hand, Expert Knowledge

Our travel consultants regularly visit the destinations they sell. Not only that, but they also attend workshops, supplier training sessions and receive up-to-date feedback from their clients. This gives you access to invaluable insider tips. Want to know which safari lodge has the best guides or which beach chalet lies closet to the sea? Easy! Just ask your Giltedge Africa Travel Expert.
