One of the first agencies of its kind in Abu Dhabi, Safar Travel & Tourism (formerly known as Abdul Jalil Travel Agency) is a venerable pioneer in the UAE's thriving travel sector. Established in 1966, the Agency today is the General Sales Agent (GSA) for Middle East Airlines (MEA), Cathay Pacific, Swiss International Airlines, and DragonAir, offering a wide range of travel and tourism related services with an inter-continental network of associates and representatives.
Staffed by a team of professional travel consultants, Safar employs the latest state-of-the-art online reservations and administration systems to cope with the immense diversity of its activities. Apart from normal ticketing and reservation services, Safar also handles package tours, hotel reservations, various tailermade airline packages and car rentals worldwide.
Safar's greatest strength is its renowned level of customer service and a reputation for genuine warmth and customer care that does not end with the sale of a ticket or tour package. It is a pleasant surprise for many new clients who do not expect their travel agency to call them up on their return and inquire about their trip. This warm personal touch is perfectly complemented by cutting-edge technology and a well-established network of international associates that allows Safar to offer highly flexible and extremely competitive travel solutions to suit any client's needs and budgets.
Executive and Business Travel
A special corporate unit has been established to provide dedicated and personalized attention to corporate clients. Specific teams are assigned to selected commercial houses and concerns, and are responsible for maintaining updated information such as usual choice of airlines, seat preferences, hotel choices and other preferences. The team also reminds the clients of approaching deadlines on their travel itineraries and holiday schedules. When it comes to actual travelling time, these teams ensure that everything from airport transfers to secretarial support (if requested) is taken care of. Due to sheer volume, Safar can offer corporate clients extremely attractive rates to meet all their travel requirements.
Hotel and Residential Accommodation
Safar has long-standing arrangements with international hotel chains in the UAE, and a number of cities in Europe, USA, Canada, Central and South Americas, Africa, Middle East and Asia. These arrangements not only ensure the most competitive rates, but also a guarantee of trouble-free travelling. When it comes to the right accommodation, equal emphasis is laid on hospitality, location, leisure facilities and the right rates. Safar can easily arrange apartments, villas and other residences at the locations mentioned above, offering a variety to choose from according to individual needs and budgets.
Tours and Cruises
From city tours to shopping trips, from quaint railroad treks to romantic cruises on the Mediterranean or in the Caribbean, mountain climbing, winter skiing and apres-ski activities, sun and sea wind surfing, Safar offers it all. Starting with comprehensive tour information, skilled staff help clients in finding the tour that they are looking for and then take care of the entire booking process. All the client really has to do is decide where to go and how much to spend. Giving the client the finest entertainment and the best value for his money is where Safar excels.
Airport Welcome Service
In addition to its own meet and assist infrastructure, Safar has made additional arrangements with both local and foreign hospitality organizations to ensure the finest meet and assist services for its clients wherever and whenever they travel.
