MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet, the fund-raising programme that helps over 10 000 beneficiaries via public participation, has announced its latest brand extension: MySchool Travel.

MySchool Travel is a virtual one-stop-travel-shop. In collaboration with Club Travel, this new online travel hub offers

  • tailored packages for both local and international destinations,
  • bookings for school tours, price comparisons among leading travel providers,
  • discounts on select deals,
  •  insurance and
  • visa assistance.

In addition, MySchool cardholders can secure contributions towards their beneficiaries by entering their card details when making payment.

Pieter Twine, MySchool general manager says: “MySchool Travel works like any other partner. You can use your MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet card online when making payment and a donation of 1% of the overall travel cost is made by Club Travel to the customer’s beneficiary of choice.”

Reasons cited for MySchool’s venture into the travel industry are simple. “By partnering with a leading online service provider such as Club Travel, and their online specialist division FlightSite, we are able to offer cardholders yet another way in which they can help raise funds for their beneficiaries. In the past financial year alone, over R21-million in funds was raised - a testament to the fact that just a simple swipe at participating retailers can go a long way in significantly contributing to the upliftment of under-resourced schools, environmental programmes and education initiatives.”

And, just like the MySchool programme, MySchool Travel is very easy to use. “We offer at-a-glance cost comparisons among leading travel providers for flights, hotels and car rentals. This allows the customer to choose the best price to suit their pocket,” explains Twine.

In addition to day-to-day travel needs, there are also competitive travel packages offering experiences ranging from the beach, safari to adventure both in South Africa and international destinations such as Mauritius, Egypt and Phuket.

Group bookings (minimum of 10) are also available. “Working with an actual FlightSite consultant, each package is designed to cater for the individual group – be they corporates, a school sports tour or family holiday. This ensures that all those extras such as visas, special diets and foreign exchange are all taken care of, without the hassle and extra cost.”

MySchool Travel is well positioned to assist, regardless of budget or requirements.
