Oriental Hotels, Lekki was set ablaze on Thursday evening, 16th May, 2012, as Travelstart launched formally in Nigeria by hosting special guests and some stakeholders in the Nigerian travel industry to an hour of glitz and excitement.
Travelstartis an online travel agency that offers you cheap flights on all major airlines including but not limited to Arik Air, Qatar, Delta and Ethiopian Airlines to United Airlines, as well as all major regional and international players flying in and out of Nigeria.
