Rocket Internet Launches Jovago Hotel booking site

Jovago is the new online hotel booking service in Africa. By listing travel destinations and providing hotel information online, the company facilitates the booking process for its users. Jovago is run by a team of 50 people and offers 140 000 hotels worldwide.

The Africa Internet Holding today announces the launch of its new online hotel booking site “Jovago”. Hotels are now just one click away for all Nigerians:

Users enter their chosen destination and Jovago offers 140,000 hotels worldwide. Jovago provides all information about hotels, as well as means to compare different options and find the ideal location. In Nigeria the portfolio consists of over 200 hotels. Customers have the option to choose between paying at the hotel or using the secure online payment option – without any booking fees.

The Africa Internet Holding is committed to launch and run successful internet ventures to accelerate the online shift in Africa:

To date, the hotel-booking market in Nigeria is unsorted. It lacks convenient solutions for booking accommodation – using time-consuming booking agencies and walking up directly to hotels is still commonplace.

Jeremy Hodara, co-CEO Africa Internet Holding: “Jovago provides the easiest way to make travel arrangements. This will help business people and travelers find reliable accommodation everywhere. We are about to fundamentally change the hotel booking market in Nigeria by creating the safest and most convenient experience. Jovago is the best place to find a hotel in Africa”
