Thanks to this acquisition, Compagnie des Alpes will be able to:
  • round out its offer of distribution of mountain holidays and accommodation;
  • reach a younger clientele;
  • reinforce its digital expertise and footprint.

 

With an annual volume of business to the tune of €85mn and a turnover of around €35mn, Travelfactory is the leading online distributor of skiing holidays in France, with a 130-strong workforce.

 

“For us, it’s a matter of providing ourselves with the means to ensure that French mountain skiing gains market shares in a highly competitive European market – an orientation that we shall be the first to benefit from”, Compagnie des Alpes CEO Dominique Marcel commented.
