To help the hard-pressed Swiss hotel industry and, at the same time, to allow the average person to have a holiday: This was the idea of Migros’ founder, Gottlieb Duttweiler, when he launched Hotelplan on 29th April 1935. “What we need to do is to try and appeal to new clients who are not in the habit of travelling”, muses Gottlieb Duttweiler. In June, the first special Hotelplan train runs to Lugano. One all-inclusive week costs 65 francs. In the first year alone, a total of 52,648 week long trips are sold.
In 2015 Hotelplan is going to celebrate its 80th birthday.
Hotelplan, the parent company of specialist tour operators Inghams and Inntravel, has expanded its operations in Britain 2010 by acquiring the Enigma Travel Group, a company specializing in skiing holidays, which comprises the Esprit Holidays and Ski Total brands. As a result of the 100% acquisition, Hotelplan has become one of the best diversified skiing and walking holidays specialist in Britain.
