About us

TravelTrex GmbH was founded in 1999 in Cologne and initially specialised in the direct sales of ski holidays with the brand SnowTrex. For this field alone, the company has become Germany's largest tour operator for winter sports holidays within just a few years.

Since 2005, SnowTrex holidays have also been sold internationally. After a successful entry into the Polish market, the French and British markets followed. As of now, the website is available in 13 languages. With this aspect, TravelTrex is one of the most successful, international winter sports tour operators.

Since 2007, the company also markets all-year holidays with the brand HolidayTrex. The main destinations are primarily the Alps and German coastal regions. In 2012, SportsTrex additionally went online for the German market, specialising in sports holidays.

The number of travellers is steadily increasing: during the 2018/2019 tourism year, about 112,000 guests went on holiday with TravelTrex, and during the 2019/2020 tourism year, this number increased to about 130,000.
