We know that running an accommodation establishment keeps our hosts busy.
One of the main questions we get asked by our new establishments is “Do we need to register as a company?”.
The answer is: yes you should. There are a lot of benefits being compliant and its always a good idea to do this as early into your new business as possible.
The next question is always “whats the best way to do this?”
Introducing CIPC company registration with Govchain – its a great online service to get your new business registered quickly and easily.
They charge a R880 once-off cost, with no paperwork everything is done online.
The whole process takes just 3 minutes.
Why the change?
We’ve come a long way since we launched back in 2006. Thanks to the support from our wonderful establishments and customers we’ve built Accommodation Direct’s name up to be one of the most recognisable online travel brands in South Africa.
Nonetheless, we felt it was time for a new fresh look, and a brand that better reflected our identity: simple, easy online bookings combined with friendly customer service.
The switch over from AccommoDirect.com to Afristay.com should be completely seamless, and no change is needed from your side. All of your bookings and info will be moved over automatically, and your login details remain the same to https://www.afristay.com/accounts/.
This is just the start of many more exciting upcoming developments, and we hope you are as excited about the future as much as we are.
