South African Airways is delighted to be working with GAP Africa Projects as their preferred carrier into South and Southern Africa.
South African Airways (SAA) has been consistently enhancing its service and product offering on the African continent, maintaining its status as the leading carrier and most awarded African airline.
Travelers come from all over the world, using Johannesburg as the popular connection point to the rest of Africa. A fast, efficient connection across Africa enables us to open up opportunities across this vast area for groups and individuals seeking knowledge, experience and adventure.
We are proud to be the national airline of South Africa, delivering a world-class experience every time, with renowned warm hospitality. With South African inspired cuisine, signature wines and on-demand personal entertainment at every seat, we’re dedicated to making your experience of traveling with South African Airways a world class one, ensuring you travel in comfort and style.
Our modern fleet of Airbus A340 and A330 aircraft operates double daily between London Heathrow and Johannesburg.
A seat pitch set between 31 and 34 inches means more leg room on our overnight services (in both directions) and our 2-4-2 configuration ensures that no-one is more than one seat away from the aisle.
All of our longhaul aircraft are equipped with on-demand personal entertainment at every seat. We offer the finest entertainment in the skies, from the latest blockbusters to news, TV shows, music and interactive games; our in-flight entertainment has something for everyone.
GAP and South African Airways look forward to welcoming you on board.
Travel Counsellors is now a truly dynamic and global travel company with 1,200 Travel Counsellors, each with an average 20 years experience, working across six countries, and a 200-strong head office team in Bolton, UK. Our customers benefit from having their own personal Travel Counsellor who takes pride in getting to know their clients personally, providing them with the highest possible levels of personal service and taking care of all their travel requirements, down to the last detail. Travel Counsellors may have grown into a large, international company but at our heart we are still a family business. Our ethos of friendship, camaraderie, caring and support is not an “added extra”, it’s at the very heartbeat of our organisation. We believe it’s this family ethos that has been a major contributor to our success and has driven the care and attention we offer to our customers, individual Travel Counsellors and staff.
In the pursuit for excellence, our insistence on high standards and our emotional attachment to our customers, we have developed a loyal public following like no other. Every day we go the extra mile to take care of our customers’ leisure and business travel arrangements, down to the last detail. Essential to this is our standing as travel industry leaders in Customer Financial Protection. We take great care in trying to avoid many of the less financially robust companies that operate in the industry. In addition, we protect every penny of our customers’ money in the form of a Trust. As both agents and operators we offer the very best and most comprehensive financial protection in the industry, which means Travel Counsellors’ customers can be safe in the knowledge that their money is completely protected. We believe strongly that this is not a privilege, but a customer’s basic right.
We are proud of what we have achieved over the last two decades. We will continue to put our passion for personal service to work for our customers in decades to come, always putting our customers first, and always with the determination to be the very best we can be.
Travel Insurance for your Trip
We believe that safety and enjoyment are equally important when travelling with Gap Africa Projects. It is therefore one of our terms and conditions of booking that you have adequate travel insurance in place before you travel with us.
Gap Africa Projects is working in partnership with Endsleigh to offer our travellers a policy which has been specifically designed to meet your requirements whilst you are on your holiday.
The policies we have chosen to provide to our travellers include the following benefits:-
• cancellation or curtailment charges
• personal accident
• emergency medical expenses
• overseas legal expenses
• personal money, passport and documents
• baggage cover
• personal liability
• search & rescue (available on comprehensive policy)
• over 100 sports and activities covered as standard
• winter sports activity cover available
This is only a summary of the cover provided. The full policy document can be read in full on Endsleigh’s website, which can be accessed by clicking the link at the bottom of the page.
NB It is an advantage to take out your travel insurance at the time of booking your trip as cover will commence for pre-departure cancellation from the policy issue date. This will, therefore, provide cover should you have to cancel your trip for an insured reason such as illness or serious accident preventing you from travelling.
