  • Firstly as eTravel is a privately owned and managed business we always look fondly towards other businesses that are privately owned & managed. From the inception of Big Ambitions to date we have always found this ownership and accountability as two qualities that are sounding through in the manner in which big ambitions deal with us as a customer. In life we know things will not always go right but it’s how one fixes and error or problem that separates the true passion from the rest. Big Ambitions has always done this in all dealings with us over the years.

We found Natalia Rosa and her entire team to be specialists in their field of Public Relations and Marketing. They worked across most areas of our company’s Marketing and PR departments in our South African division. In 2018 they were particularly effective, stepping into the gap when our Communications Manager was on extended sick leave. Very quickly they picked up on crucial elements of our business and filled the void for a period of five months. The work produced was of an

Jenna and the Big Ambitions team rose to the occasion without complaint; producing copy for over 35 landing pages which exist as the foundation of our travel offering. While the quantity of work produced is something to be marvelled at, Big
