Subject: Complaints or Complement

I, Reidiwaan Jaffer and wife Rachmat Jaffer would like to complement the Travel Express team lead by Sheigh Kashief Damon as our spiritual leader. Algamdulilah we had a wonderful Hajj with them and we are glad to say every cent we spend was worth for this spiritual trip to the 3 Harams we can only Shukran Allah for guiding us to the Travel Express team.

When I went to the  road show and pamphlets were given out and I saw Sheigh Kashief Damon name on the sheet, I said to my wife we are going to travel with them. We had other quotations but came back to Travel Express. And we can gladly say to any future Hujaajis if they see Sheigh Kashief Damon name on that pamphlet then travel with those operators.

He was given the leading roll in Medina and Makka by Sedick Steenkamp - that made the experience a success. 

All the best in the future for Travel Express.


Boeta Sedick Steenkamp 
Sheigh Kashief
Boeta Zane Jaffer
Abdullah Aghmat

And the rest of the team from the Jaffer family. We are really a family Wslm

As Salaam Abdullah

I am sending this email to you for onward transmission to Boeta Sedick and Boeta, Zane as I don't have their email addresses.

Let me take this opportunity to convey mine and my husband's most heartfelt gratitude for the excellent service we received from the Travelxpress team. I will certainly advise any family member or friend to travel with you to perform hajj [in fact I have done so already].

I am almost at a loss for words to convey precisely how grateful we both are that you delivered upon your contractual obligations and then some! My husband and I are most proud in our conversations with family and friends to say that we have absolutely no negative word to utter against the service of Travelxpress.

A huge shukran for the sincerity, diplomacy and transparency displayed by the team at all times. 

May Allah swt keep His hand over this expanding business, Insha Allah.

PS: I have not forgotten about Sheikh - I will send him a note as well.

Warm regards,
Shahieda Freeman


Asalaamu Alaikum Waragmatulah. All Praises and Thanks to Allah swt.

To the Travel Express Team: we want to express our sincerest gratitude for all your efforts and active involvement on our journey and ensuring we had a wonderful and memorable experience Alghamdulilah.

To Abdullah, we can't thank you enough for being there every step of the way. We could not have asked for better guide. A job well done by the Koedrat of Allah.

My duah for you is that your business grows and may you and your families always be under the guidance and protection of Allah swt.

Best wishes.
Mogamat Faiez & Fatima Arendse

Travel Express, Our Travel Agent:-

Alghamdoelilah I am back home safely after my super awesome UMRAH. Shukran to my beloved husband - Wahib for doing such a great job with the kids and my beloved sister in law Raggie Rejaldien looking after them. However I am home sick ... I am craving to be back in the Haram of Makkah and Madina with Sheikh Kaashief Damon and my besties Asger and Aunty Fadzila - who inspired me Alghamdoelilah how great is Allah.



Travel Xpress, The Travel Agent with a truly Personal Touch:-

We, Akber and Safeyah Essop, would like to take this opportunity to thank Travel Xpress for assisting us to fulfill our dream Umrah journey. This agency truly went beyond their call of duty and surpassed all our expectations. They are, with all sincerity, a remarkable agency with a personal touch who we will definitely travel with again in the not too distant future, inshAllah.

My wife and I were scheduled to leave on Monday, 15 December 2014 when disaster struck at OR Tambo airport due to a validity issue with my passport. The customs officials would not allow us to fly that day. My wife and I were devastated since we had saved so long for this trip and had built up immense excitement. It was even more heart wrenching when hearing the announcement at the airport that Akber and Safeyah Essop were removed from the flight. I immediately contacted Sedick Steenkamp who was also with us at OR Tambo at the time who immediately tried to pacify us. Within the next 5 minutes Abdullah Achmat, who was manning the Travel Xpress office in Cape Town, contacted us to try and explain possible positive scenarios and suggestions. Between Sedick at OR Tambo and his wife Abeda and Abdullah who were in Cape Town, I was literally contacted every 15 minutes to half an hour. Yasmin Kagee who was also at OR Tambo at the time assisting Sedick also stayed with us until our issue was resolved. Travel Xpress truly went all out to try and resolve the situation and put us in a positive frame of mind.

They were so hands on that Sedick arranged for one of his friends, Tagsien Barnes and his wife, who reside in Johannesburg, to take us to Home Affairs in Kempton Park. In the meant time in Cape Town, Abdullah and Abeda contacted our families and made a special trip to Home Affairs in Wynberg to get to the bottom of the issue. My family eventually found my valid passport later that afternoon and Abdullah managed to get it to me in Johannesburg the next day. In the interim Abdullah and Abeda still managed to find time to re-book our flights and tranfers for the Wednesday afternoon, 17 December 2014, Alghamdullillah.

My wife and I further had a memorable, unforgettable, pleasant Umrah exerience. We owe all of this to the quick thinking, efficient Travel Xpress Team to whom we will be eternally grateful. We would also like to thank the Travel Xpress members, Imam Mustapha Kader, and last but definitely not least, Sedick Steenkamp who made sure that our stay in Madinah and Makkah was a comfortable one. We would also like to thank Sedick who also offered us continual guidance and assistance.

Respected Khajjah Abeda, Slm alayk!

Before it gets any later, welcome back! And an umrah maqboul to you all ameen!!!

Regret we could not be with on that leg too. However, our own stay in Cairo together with the trip through the desert right into Palestine , as well as our few days there, were just tremendous. All your contacts were commendable and every bit as obliging and accommodating as those wonderful friends we had to leave behind in Spain and Morocco.

Then, I really do need to express my heartfelt thanks for all that you delivered from the 17th March right to the day we parted in Fes and beyond. That is, thanks to you and your crew but especially you for your hands on' kindness and concern every bit the exemplary hostess: all in all, superlative. Frankly, I started out a little apprehensive for I'd never toured with a group nor ever arranged a trip with one of our own agencies: this was a first. Nevertheless, any misgivings were soon dispelled and to the contrary we had an INCREDIBLE time. I think we were fortunate in that we had a fantastic bunch of people that I'd have no hesitation travelling with again anytime in the future.

With gratitude,

Sadek du Toit

Wassalamu alaykul wa Rakhmatullah.

Salaam A. Abeda

This is for your husband Sedick Steenkamp.
If I have not said it to you before, I say it now.
They say it is never too late to give credit where it is due.
My family and I are still talking about the night your husband decided to take the group on Umrah to Tana'im. It was absolutely both spiritual, and heart-renderingly beautiful to say the least. It brought us, the few ladies from the group to tears.
Mymona Vardy and I cried our eyes out because he brought the solawaat so beautiful as well as the Labbayk - Allaahu Akbar!!!
The taxi driver actually recorded the thikr on his cell phone that we did as a group lead by your husband.
He lead us in Tawaaf and left us to complete the Sa'i at our own pace but said that we had to meet after the sa'i.
This is one of the Umrah's that we did that we will not ever forget,
Algamdulillah. We as a family alone did another Umrah all on our own but although the same ritual was carried out the beautiful thikr enroute to the Meqaat was very different, one could not help but have one's thoughts run back to the previous Umrah that was performed.

May Allah reward him well, Amin and may your business grow from strength to strength, Amin, Thumma Amin.

Much love
Fatima Abduraouf
