Travel & Accommodation

The Hiltonian Travel Service

The Hiltonian Travel Service was conceived of by Old Hiltonian Craig Goodenough (1988, Churchill), the owner of XL Howick Travel and Bundu Bashers. Created as a mechanism to give back to the school, the Hiltonian Travel Service pays a percentage of its profits to the Hiltonian Society Bursary Fund.

Established in 2012, the initiative has been a resounding success, adding considerably to the bursary fund.

Over the past decade, members of staff, parents of Hilton boys, friends of Hilton and Old Hiltonians, in SA and abroad, have supported The Hiltonian Travel Service by entrusting to it their travel arrangements.

Whether you need to travel for business or leisure, you are guaranteed competitive prices and excellent service, and the satisfaction of knowing that you have contributed to our school’s bursary fund.

Depending on your travel requirements, your booking may be handled by XL Howick Travel or Bundu Bashers, but the benefit goes to the school, through the Hiltonian Travel Service.
