Travel for less with

By Danielle van Wyk

Domestic airline announced their new partnership with the global travel awards currency, Avios. Under this partnership, travellers will now be able to fly for less.

“Not only will kulula fans who have joined Avios be able to collect Avios at a rate of three Avios for every R10 spent on kulula flights, but now they can convert their Avios to Travelbank credit for flights. Fans will be able to redeem in increments of a 1000 Avios, equal to R60 in Travelbank credit, which can be used on any flight, including airport taxes,” stated kulula.

As an added benefit, should customers not have enough Avios points to cover the entire airfare, they are now able to use a combination of Avios points and cash to pay for their flights. “The partnership gives our fans more value for their money and rewards them for choosing to fly with us,” says Shaun Pozyn, head of marketing, customer experience and loyalty for kulula.

The following steps will assist you to convert Avios into Travelbank credit in order to redeem on all flights.

  •            Step 1 – Visit the homepage and click on “convert Avios” 
  •            Step 2 – Log into Travelbank with your kulula ID details (if you don’t have a kulula ID you will have to quickly create one)
  •            Step 3 -  Log into Avios with your Avios log-in details
  •            Step 4 – Convert your Avios to Travelbank

“To ensure a smoother, quicker conversion process to book kulula flights, fans are encouraged to create a kulula ID. By inserting their Avios membership number into their kulula ID, they will never miss out on collecting Avios. Consumers with an existing kulula ID can simply add their Avios membership number to their current profile,” added the airline.

Juliet Xavier, head of market for Avios in South Arica said: “At Avios we strive to continually provide customers with inspiring collection and spending opportunities. We are very excited about this new development in our partnership with kulula as it does just that by offering customers another great way to get savings on flights, giving them greater flexibility and convenience when it comes to travel.”
