Global accommodation specialist Wotif.com has strengthened its destination focus on South Africa with the opening of an office in Cape Town.

Wotif.com’s Executive General Manager for EMEA Matthew Harris explained the move, “We had always intended to launch South Africa as a destination and always felt that the World Cup might kindle our customer’s interest but we couldn’t have anticipated this level of response.”

According to Deloitte, South Africa saw an unprecedented 120% increase in RevPAR during the World Cup – a figure that dwarfs the 33% increase that Germany experienced during the 2006 tournament.

“We are also very fortunate to be able to second experienced product manager Kevin Rautenbach from our Asia business unit to helm our South African operations. A native South African, Kevin's strong hospitality connections will be instrumental to our growth,” Harris added.
