Jumia Travel Uganda Manager Timothy Mugume

Jumia Travel Uganda has officially launched its new travel agency at Pan Africa House on Kimathi Avenue, in a bid to extend its services to more people.

“This will allow the company to be physically on ground and closer to the people as the new travel agency is in the central business district,” a release by Jumia Travel, states in part.

The new agency will help make hotel and flight bookings easier for customers in the event they are unable to book on the online platform.
