Having won the coveted SA Tourism Award as Best Travel Agency 2007, the owners and directors of Travel with Flair believe in transfer of skills and knowledge.They are committed to the upliftment of the SA Travel Industry through the creation of a Travel Academy where learners can qualify themselves with a THETA accredited qualification.

Mr Tibor Zsadanyi ( GTA Managing Director) was one of the first graduates to complete the BCOM degree in Hotel and Tourism Management at the University of Pretoria in 1993. ( This degree is still offered at the University of Pretoria and is now a BCOM in Tourism Management degree ). Mr Zsadanyi lectured in the Department of Tourism Management for 3 years before venturing out into the Travel Industry. Together with Mr Robert Wilke (who also completed the BCOM degree in Hotel and Tourism Management) - they opened Travel with Flair in Pretoria in 1996 . Johanna Mukoki joined as a part owner and Director of TWF in 1997. Basetsana Kumalo (Miss SA 1994 - and Top Billing fame) joined as a Director in 2001.

This dynamic team have mastered the workings of the Travel Industry and today GTA is there to assist prospective Travel Consultants to qualify for the industry. Through a combination of theory supported by practical training in the field - GTA will provide the SA Travel Industry with top consultants.
