Jovago has launched a new scheme, JoBooker, which is aimed at assisting innovative students to learn as they earn.
The program is designed for students across the country who are set to turn their hobbies into money through travel and discovery. It is one of Jovago’s initiatives that aims to make travel accessible, enjoyable and affordable for a divergent consumer base.
“JoBooker recognizes the need for laying financial independence among college-going generation,” said Nafisa Fazal, Head of Marketing for Jovago East Africa. “Apart from enabling students make some money on the side without necessarily interfering with the school schedule, this new initiative will also prepare students for the corporate world through incorporating work values and ethics”.
The program is based on a simple structure that allows a student to earn 5% in commission for every Jovago booking they make. It is also built on a socially engaging model; allowing friends of students signed to the program a 10% discount for bookings made on the platform. This inclusion creates a network of tech savvy travelers who prefer products that are both convenient and inclusive.
Students can join Jobooker by sending their email to firstname.lastname@example.org. They will in turn receive an information pack and a personal code that will be used to identify and track all their bookings. Other benefits include possible internship as well as free Jovago getaways.
