The first school term has almost ended and the April holidays will soon be here. So, will you take a family road trip to Mpumalanga, a weekend away to visit the grandparents in sunny Durban or a couple’s R&R? Decisions, decisions...and are you getting the best deal? Really?

“Many consumers know that hippo.co.za is a financial comparisons site for insurance,” says Carl Louw, Executive Head of Marketing for hippo.co.za, “But they don’t know that you can also compare other products too, such as air tickets, car hire and accommodation. We know our consumer is time-strapped and that’s why hippo.co.za is there to help you compare prices and features, so that you can choose the best deal for you.”

According to South African Tourism, there has been an increase in domestic tourism, from 6,1 million trips taken in quarter 3 of 2012 to 7,1 million trips in the third quarter of 2013. This represents a 17% growth for domestic tourism in South Africa.

While you are online, this may also be a good time to check that your car insurance and household insurance policies are in order, and more importantly, whether you should change, upgrade or downgrade after a visit to the comparative site.

“Hippo.co.za’s partners make it easy for you to plan the best holiday for your budget,” says Louw, “So make use of this free tool that allows you to compare flights, car rental, accommodation and travel insurance.” Take the hassle out of planning your next holiday and be one of over 90 000 people who visit the site to compare every month.

Established in 2007, hippo.co.za is South Africa’s leading comparison website that helps consumers save money by choosing from a range of financial products including car insurance, home insurance and even cheap flights, from some of SA’s leading brands. Recent independent research commissioned by hippo.co.za revealed that 89%* of consumers saved money when buying or switching insurance providers through the website. Hippo.co.za makes money by simply charging its partners a fee when a customer chooses to find out more about their products. The results consumers see, and the order in which they are presented, is in no way influenced by the fee hippo.co.za charges its partners or any other factors other than price of the product being compared.
