Did you know...?
Many people don’t realise that we are a travel agent and when you come to our site you see the prices and availability of chalets, hotels and apartments from all the major tour operators and many small operators (we work with over 40 ski tour operators). We are saving you a lot of time and effort by bringing all this information together, as well as getting some great prices and exclusive offers from our suppliers.
What many people also don’t realise is that many of the big ski brands are part of the same organisation. Iglu is an independent agent so we don’t have any affiliation to any of the tour operators, our goal is to offer the best choice and prices for our customers.
Earlier this summer quite a major event happened in the ski industry, the Enigma Travel Group was sold to Hotelplan UK. Now this will not mean anything or sound very exciting to most people, but it has created the second largest ski tour operator group bringing together the brands of Inghams, Ski Total and Ski Esprit, and putting the Hotelplan UK group not far behind TUI Ski in size.
Is bigger better? In a tough economic climate if savings can be made through economies of scale and passed on to the consumer then everyone is winning, and it creates some healthy competition for the market leaders which is never a bad thing.
