Mango Airlines & SA Tourism competition to win a holiday


When staying in Cape Town, why not try accommodation in Fish Hoek? We recommend Tranquility Guest House for its views from high up above the town.

There's a new festival this year in Hermanus - from the 7th to the 16th June there's the Hermanus Fynarts Festival, which just so happens to coincide with the start of whale season (not the peak, though).

Did you know that if you're a South African citizen who is flying a 1-stop via Cairo (i.e. usually with Egyptair), and you're at the airport for less than 24 hours, you don't need a transit visa. If you're in the country from 6 to 12 hours, you can leave the airport.

Emirates is often cheapest from Johannesburg to New York, although it's quite a round trip.

Email us a write-up of your trip & we'll give you a travel voucher (write more & share pictures for bigger vouchers):
Photo taken on Saturday night at Lagoon Beach at sunset, - was a perfect autumn day, no wind and a goldilocks tempature (not too hot, not too cold, just right). And note all the orange in the picture, in keeping with the Mango theme of today's newsletter :)

"First Car Rental achieved excellent results in a very competitive market. Rental days increased by 11%, against an industry average of 6%. Vehicle write-off and damage costs were reduced following a focus on quality business rather than chasing volume, and the fleet utilisation rate improved. A key component of the profit model is the price at which retired fleet vehicles can be sold. The policy of deploying vehicles which are different to those used by competitors means that the division is able to sell the vehicles into niche markets rather than competing in a market oversupplied by retired fleets. First Car Rental's focus on customer service was recognised when, in the face of stiff competition from well-established industry players, it was awarded Gold 1st Place in the South African Service Awards. The division's web-based booking system is world class and its popular "Show and Go" loyalty card has proved to be a valuable time-saver for customers." Combined Motor Holdings results to 28 February 2013.
