Conceived in Sweden, Travelstart first opened its doors in 1999, as the brainchild of Travel visionary Stephan Ekbergh. In true start-up fashion, Sweden’s first online travel agency was run from an old coffee roastery in the town of Malmö. Nearly two decades, plenty of learning, growth and one African immigration later, Stephan still heads up Travelstart, which is now based in the Cape Town CBD. Today Travelstart proudly employs a team of more than 200 staff from all walks of life who are passionate about one goal – making your travel simple. With offices across Africa and the Middle East, Travelstart continues to bring travel to your fingertips and using our success for good.
