How am I rewarded?

For each study you participate in, you will be rewarded with Hello Africa Travel travel credits. The travel credits you accumulate can then be applied to get discounts off future bookings. For example, if you accumulate R 500 travel credits, you can use this to get a R 500 discount off a future booking.

 

The credits accumulate in time, there’s no limit, and they have no expiration date. The more research you assist with, the more money you’ll get off your future bookings with Hello Africa Travel.
