What you need to know about the 2020 Travel Expo_1

Unlike previous years when the Travel Expo was held at the Ticketpro Dome in Johannesburg, Flight Centre Travel Group’s tenth annual Travel Expo is popping up nationwide with deals available at all 121 Flight Centre and Cruiseabout stores across the country.


According to a press release, the idea came after people asked for the center to make deals more accessible to all South Africans and not just those living in Johannesburg.

Going National


“We’ve inspired a new Travel Expo concept to make it easier for them to benefit from over 500 unbeatable deals in-store or book flights online”, says Andrew Stark, Flight Centre Travel Group Managing Director, Middle East and Africa.


“We’ve had a number of enquiries regarding tickets for the Travel Expo and we’d like to reiterate that the Expo will not be taking place at one venue only, as at the Ticketpro Dome in previous years. Instead, all the Travel Expo deals will now be available at every Flight Centre and Cruiseabout store across the country. This means there is no admission fee or the need to book tickets. Simply walk into your nearest store on the Expo weekend and get chatting to your local Flight Centre expert”, says Stark.

This year’s event will run for three days, from 28 February to 1 March 2020, and matches travel enthusiasts with over 500 exclusive deals that are only accessible at Flight Centre and Cruiseabout stores.
