Travel Rendezvous Company Profile
Travel Rendezvous was founded in 2005 by Brian and Jenny Jackwitch. The couple, who have travelled extensively overseas for the past 20 years, always felt there was a lack of enthusiasm and knowledge in the travel industry. Seeing a gap in the market which they wanted to explore, they bought their present premises on Ontdekkers road, Roodepoort and started operating from them on 6 January 2006. This locale, situated on one of Roodepoort’s busiest roads has helped get the name known in the area and has attracted walk in customers. In June 2016, Travel Rendezvous moved premises to 5 Syringa Avenue, Breaunanda.
Travel Rendezvous currently has two consultants. Jenny Jackwitch, manager, and the owner has been in business for the past 32 years. She has also consulted the past 23 years in both insurance and travel industries. She has done extensive travelling and visited more than 46 countries worldwide, giving her a vast knowledge of the ins and outs of travel. Claire Harvey has been in the travel industry for more than 13 years. She has an excellent track record with leisure and corporate customers, as a result of the personal service she offers. She has lived in Ireland and has gained insurmountable experience with the European way of life. She is well regarded by her customers for her friendly and efficient service. Brian Jackwitch has joined the company in the capacity as the marketing manager. He has worked in various industry segments over the last 30 years, with experience in the telecommunications industry. Like Jenny, he has visited more than 45 countries worldwide, giving him valuable insight into being on the “other” side of the counter.
