SaveApp and HotelOnline today launched a strategic partnership to allow their users save towards their ultimate dream holidays. Through SaveApp’s Ukonga platform, users can now access exclusive holiday packages from Cloud9, by HotelOnline. To encourage SaveApp customers to take up the offer, HotelOnline will match the first KES 500 saved towards a holiday, with an additional KES 500.

According to Abdulaziz Mohammed Omar, CEO of SaveApp , “Ukonga platform allows our users to save their spare change towards the holiday of their choice without the prohibitive expense of a holiday treat”.

Endre Opdal, CEO of HotelOnline remarked that, “this exclusive partnership allows us to extend our holiday packages to a wider audience as more people want to travel now that they are vaccinated”.
