Hello! Welcome to Where2Stay-SouthAfrica.com
Our website offers you a great choice of accommodation across South Africa including Guesthouses, Game Reserves, Hotels, Self-Catering and Bed & Breakfast, Backpacker, Campsite and Bush Lodge accommodation.
Where2Stay-SouthAfrica.com provides a very friendly user experience with search facilities designed to meet the requirements of a wide range of visitors. Once someone has found the place they are looking for they can make a booking enquiry directly via email to the owner through our online Booking Enquiry system.
In addition we offer a wide range of travel and tourist information and tips designed to make your trip to South Africa an enjoyable one.
Where2Stay-SouthAfrica charges an annual subscription fee for listing venues on our website.
1 Year Listing Fee = R649.00
1 Year Premium Listing Fee = R849.00 (Premium Listings appear at the top of our search pages)
2 Year Listing Fee = R1049.00
We do not charge venue owners any booking commission fees.
Each venue on our website has its own listing page comprising the following details:
1. Photos (up to 9 can be published)
2. General description of the venue
3. Description of the Accommodation Options
4. Description of the facilities and any activities available for guests both onsite and nearby
5. Room Rates
6. Google Map Locator
7. Services available at the venue
8. Details of Cancellation Policy and Deposit Policy
9. Special Deals
Bookings are done via the client clicking on a Booking Enquiry button on the listing page and filling in their requirements. The email is then sent directly to an email of your choice. Unfortunately there are a number of online booking engines used across the industry and we cannot integrate individual venues to different booking systems as it is cost prohibitive.
All handling of booking enquiries and payments is the responsibility of the venue owner. We do not operate as a booking agent.
Clients have their own login details to manage the content of their listing and can make changes (eg Room Rates) at any time throughout their listing subscription period.
We also have a new ‘Last Minute Deals’ section whereby venue owners can list any Last Minute Accommodation they have available at a Special Rate.
Step 1 of listing your venue is to Register and to complete a New Listing Application. Once you are registered and you have completed your listing subscription payment (Step 2) you can then add your own venue listing (Step 3).
Here is our guide to adding a venue listing - New Listing Guide
We recognise the importance of social marketing and actively promote venues and events through our Facebook, Google+ and Twitter business pages.
Our Google+ page has over 60,000 followers and is the Most Followed Google+ Page in South Africa.
In 2013 we launched a new Mobile Version of our website targeting all mobile phones such as Blackberry, iPhone and other smartphones. The new mobile version is quick, simple to use and includes features like ‘near me now’ which users can use to search for last minute accommodation showing them venues within a 25km radius of their current location. If you have a smartphone please check it out by typing www.where2stay-southafrica.com on your phone’s internet browser. In 2012 mobile traffic to websites increased more than PC’s and Laptops for the first time and with the growth in new and cheaper smartphones we are really pleased to have launched this new service.
