Travel made affordable and easy

Travelling can be a bit expensive if not planned for well in advance. A Cape Town start-up has come up with a better concept to allow those who deserve to take a break from the crazy life and hit the Bahamas.

FOMO offers its users a lay-bye option for a holiday. You choose your preferred destination and start paying for it before travelling. It has no interest and no credit checks.

Andrew Katzwinkel, founder and CEO of FOMO Travel says the business idea stemmed out of his need to take a break and could not afford it. He didn't want to take a loan or use his savings on a holiday.

Brian Singer, CEO of the Singer Group says they became partners with FOMO because they believe it is a brilliant idea that will allow more people a chance to travel and explore.
