Jovago – a leading online hotel booking portal in Nigeria launched its free internet service with MTN Nigeria. The move means that MTN users won’t be billed for the data they consume while using the Jovago app.
“This is a great milestone for us in order to offer great accessibility for the customer-centric mobile experience. We have noticed the immense growth of mobile internet penetration in Africa and remain focused on reaching clients across the world in order to offer them our services” said Paul Midy, CEO of Jovago. “Now, all MTN users can have access to more than 8, 000 hotels in Nigeria and 25 000 hotels in Africa without cost and book in one click.”
The recent launch of the Jovago app on the Android platform was a positive step in the right direction and this next step with a key partner would boost value with the customer-base. A survey conducted by Jovago shows that more than 50 % of the booking are done through mobile devices.
