This influx of tourists means more money coming into the continent ; In 2014, Africa recorded US $43.6 billion in revenue and according to the UK’s World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC), the international tourism sector now accounts for 8.1% of Africa’s total GDP.
The many stakeholders that contribute to this passionate sector are always finding ways to serve and entice tourists local and foreign to visit and return. Hotels, as well as, tours and travel agencies package offers that are honestly hard to turn down.
Hotels and Travel agencies hoping to expand
Travel agencies and hotels are looking to go beyond the realms of serving just the countries in which they are located. The urge to capture tourists across Africa and beyond the continent has led to innovations that enable tourists to make pre payments and bookings in advance to places of tour and services for accommodation.
The barrier however lies in the fact that tourists across Africa and the rest of the world find challenges with hotels and travel agencies on how best they can make payments for required services due to the different economic set up among African countries and with those from outside the continent.
Payment modes differ across borders which hinders quick money movement to the tourism stakeholders in Africa and most tourists aren’t comfortable moving with colossal chunks of money to spend.
Dusupay now facilitates the African tourism industry : Fortunately, business are now in a better position, hotels and tour agencies can use Dusupay to receive payments from across Africa and beyond. Working with DUSUPAY enables businesses to receive payments from tourists using any kind of pay mode incorporated with their system therefore avoiding the the inconveniences of losing business due to different payment modes.
