DER Touristik Group: Diversity and Competence in Tourism
DER Touristik Group is one of the leading tourism groups in Europe and the REWE Group’s travel and tourism division. DER Touristik can look back on a corporate history spanning over 100 years. Today, more than 8,000 people in 16 European countries are working with in-depth knowledge of tourism and a strong passion for making guests’ holiday dreams come true.
Each year, millions of travellers place their trust in the expertise of the group of companies to plan and execute their holiday and business travel:
They obtain expert advice at one of DER Touristik’s more than 2,300 travel agencies in Germany, the UK, France, Eastern Europe and Switzerland – including agencies of the successful DERTOUR, DEPART and Kuoni sales brands – or use their online consultation services. Those wanting to book their desired holiday on the internet, will find what they are looking for on the group’s tour operator websites or travel portals such as prijsvrij.nl or lastminute.ch.
Guests spend their holiday in a hotel belonging to DER Touristik Group’s five hotel brands, this includes Sentido, Aldiana, Calimera and COOEE. They travel with one of the more than 20 tour operators of DER Touristik Group, such as DERTOUR, Kuoni, Apollo and Exim Tours, or entrust one of the Group’s approximately 30 specialists with their holiday. They have specialised in travel for specific target groups such as golf players or those interested in culture or diving.
Upon arrival at the resort, guests in 29 holiday destinations are welcomed by employees of DER Touristik’s own destination agencies. Their care of guests up until departure ensures that each holiday will be an unforgettable experience.
In this way, DER Touristik Group accompanies its customers from the start of holiday planning right through to when they return home. In doing so, the group of companies works to the highest quality standards at all times. What is more, safety has top priority at DER Touristik – that applies to guests as well as to its employees and partners.
