Dubai-based DMC, United World, now has representation locally through the operator’s appointment of Nadia Horn as its head of sales in South Africa.
The company, which was founded five years ago, specialises in Dubai and United Arab Emirates bookings for groups and FITs. It is purely a B2B operation, selling to travel and tour operators but not to the public.
In addition to offline reservation assistance, United World also offers agents and operators access to its B2B booking platform where clients can view, book and issue vouchers for hotels, transfers and day tours within the Emirates. According to Nadia, United World can also assist with the issuance of UAE visas through its online booking platform.
She says it also specialises in arranging golf tours in the Emirates and has an extensive offering of sightseeing options. These include city tours of all of the Emirates, dhow cruises, zip line tours, heritage tours, theme park and water park trips.
Rates are all offered at nett prices.
Nadia is based in Cape Town and says she is looking forward to engaging with both travel consortiums and independent agents in South Africa.
