A brand-new accommodation booking app, Viya, is now available for local travellers looking to book stays across South Africa.
A press release says the system is designed to revolutionise the way we explore South Africa.
While Viya allows consumers to discover and book accommodation across the country, it also provides a platform to share travel experiences.
With over 25 000 options all over Mzansi, Viya boasts diverse travel options, from luxury getaways to budget-friendly adventures. The app allows its users to filter their searches by location, price, amenities, and more.
It also doubles as a social media platform that allows travellers to follow each other, share tips, and be inspired by fellow Viya travellers. “By scrolling Viya’s infinite feed of travel content, you’ll be inspired to explore new destinations, try new activities, and create unforgettable memories. You can connect with friends and exchange tips, recommendations, and insider knowledge about your favourite destinations. These features allow travellers to see Viya travel experiences first-hand, giving them deeper insight into what to expect when booking a Viya stay,” said Tshiamo Letaoana, brand spokesperson at Viya.
Viya is partnering with local content creators and influencers in its #VayawithViya campaign, including Brenden Praise, Oros Mampofu, Gophari, Black Tony Stark, and Rego & Dise.
These creators share their travel experiences and tips with their followers, demonstrating the benefits of the app and inspiring others to explore new destinations. “By sharing your experiences, you can inspire others and connect with a vibrant community of travellers. By inspiring others, you can help to create a culture where travel is accessible and enjoyable for everyone,” Letaoana concluded.
Viya is now available for download in the App Store, Google Play and Huawei App Gallery.
