Elevate your winter and travel with certainty this season thanks to Inghams’ NEW Covid-19 Hub.
With winter drawing ever-closer and ski holidays within touching distance, the most wonderful time of the year is almost upon us. No, no we don’t mean Christmas… We mean that time of the year when we skiers can start dusting off our suitcases, digging out our favourite winter outfits and start getting seriously excited about hitting the slopes once more.
However, while the excitement levels are the same as ever, we are all aware that this winter will look slightly different to normal. With ever-evolving travel restrictions and each country with its own different sets of rules and requirements, this means that trying to pinpoint the specifics for your destination of choice can be quite confusing.
This is why Inghams have launched a brand new online Covid-19 Hub, to provide detailed information of the restrictions in place across all the countries in which they operate.
From countries’ individual entry requirements to what to expect on the ground in your chosen resort, Inghams are hoping to take the stress and confusion out of travel this winter, so you can concentrate on enjoying your well-earned winter break!
Do I need to wear a mask on the ski lifts? Do I need a pass to enter a restaurant? Can I get a test in the resort? All these questions and more will be covered in the Hub.
The benefits are clear before you even leave the country, with the Covid-19 Hub offering bespoke discounts for UK test suppliers (where necessary) as well as details on Inghams’ flexible booking policies and In Safe Hands promise. The latter, which provides complete and comprehensive financial protection for consumers booking with Inghams, is certainly key for many travellers this winter and will provide valuable peace of mind in the build-up to your holiday.
The Covid-19 Hub will also provide further information on Inghams’ new ‘No fee from us’ booking policy*. This policy allows you to move your holiday up until 28-days before departure, with no fees, meaning that you can be even more flexible with your plans this winter and can easily rearrange your trip if you don’t feel comfortable travelling.
With flexibility and financial security so important for travellers at this moment in time, these policies perhaps explain why so many travellers are keen to travel with Inghams this winter.
Interestingly, the majority of their direct customers are actually new to the Inghams brand, which is an encouraging trend for the snow sports industry as a whole, as well as for the operator themselves.
Commenting on the strong performance and winter outlook, Joe Ponte, CEO of Inghams, says:
“We’re delighted to see such strong booking numbers as we head into winter, and what’s even more encouraging is that 63% of our direct customers are new to the Inghams brand, so it’s great to see that the work we have done during the pandemic has paid off. We want to make the return to skiing as safe and simple for our customers as possible, which is why we’ve launched the Covid-19 Online Hub and continue to upkeep our In Safe Hands promise.
“We hope that these resources along with the incredible chalets, hotels and apartments we have on offer this year will welcome customers back to the mountains feeling reassured and ready to ski, which is what we’ve all been waiting for.”
In line with their new Covid-19 Hub, Inghams will also soon be launching their latest winter campaign, Elevate Your Winter. This campaign is all about getting skiers back to the mountains for a winter bigger and better than any that has come before, and, if rising excitement levels are anything to go by, they are certainly onto something. Try out the Elevate your Winter Quiz or enter a competition to win a ski holiday for 2 in Austria!
We’ve not seen a mountain appetite this high from the ski community in years and it seems we are gearing up for a season of true appreciation. After a season away from the slopes, we’ll be drinking in every second of the mountains more than ever this winter.
