About Us

Friends And Travels (FAT) is convenient, cost effective, safe and the only of its kind...

We have a "network" for close friends and family members called Friends and Travels - or FAT in short, the concept is quite simple: we created this network for people travelling using their own transport all over South Africa. We collect this information about their travel dates whether they require a lift or offering one and we share it amongst each other within the network.

If there's someone looking for a lift and there's someone requesting one for the same destination and date, we exchange their contact details and let them make all the necessary arrangements without our interference. So ours is to help drivers find passengers and vice versa.

Having been around since late 2012, we're constantly changing our ways, always playing around with ideas to increase value as far as membership experience is concerned. This website was first hosted in 2015 and those few who saw it then will atest to the changes we've since made. The big idea is to build a social network not only for the internet fanatics but to simplify our daily lives as well..
