At Hotelplan UK, the brand and team will join the group’s existing portfolio of activity and experience holiday companies, which includes Inghams, family skiing brand Esprit Holidays, chalet specialist Ski Total, Santa’s Lapland short breaks, self-guided walking and cycling experts, Inntravel, and small-groups adventure travel specialist, Explore Worldwide.
Hotelplan UK chief executive, Paul Carter, commented: “We are excited to welcome such a highly respected name to our existing family of specialist brands, and further strengthen our position in the flexible tailor-made sector.
“Hotelplan UK has a strong tradition of excellence and high standards of quality and service, tremendous customer loyalty and experienced teams with incredibly deep product expertise.
“Flexiski fits perfectly with the overall philosophy, direction and ambition of the Hotelplan Group.”
Flexiski will move from its current offices in Surbiton to Hotelplan’s offices in Godalming, Surrey.
Flexiski general manager, Peter Hillyard, noted: “It is an exciting time for us at Flexiski, with the tailor-made winter sports sector growing quickly.
“We are looking forward to joining forces and operating within a group with such long-standing experience in the Alps and with an enthusiastic team of like-minded ski specialists at our new home with Hotelplan.”
