ClubstoHire.com has signed an exclusive deal with TUI Deutschland, Germany’s number one travel operator, to extend the group’s golfing package with high-end clubs on offer to many of its travelling golfers.
The Dublin-based rental company, which is the largest of its kind in Europe after supplying a record 40,000 sets of clubs last year, will be making clubs available to TUI customers across the Mediterranean from July 2014.
“The German market is very important to us as we grew our business there organically by 12% in 2013,” said Chief Executive Tony Judge. “But we believe this deal will elevate our profile significantly in this growing market place as TUI is a major force and its commitment to golf travel is stepping up a gear.”
Mario Schomann, Head of Golf at TUI Deutschland, said: “A core target for us is delivering a premium experience for our travelling golf clients and the service that ClubstoHire offers is perfect for those going abroad. We have known about ClubstoHire for over two years and we are impressed with the quality of the product and service supplied. This service will make golf travel far more convenient for our clients and they also get the opportunity to try out some of the latest sets of clubs on the market.”
TUI Deutschland is the leading tour operator in Germany and an expert in golf tourism. By booking with TUI, golfers benefit from a high variety of golf packages, guaranteed tee times at selected courses and unlimited golf offers and lessons in travel destinations geared for beginners as well as advanced players.
As part of the deal, ClubstoHire will supply its latest sets at eight key locations serviced by TUI, including favourite golfing destinations such as Faro, Malaga, Palma, Tenerife and Gran Canaria. The deal also includes the service at Belek, Cyprus, and Marrakesh in Morocco. TUI clients will simply book the sets of clubs with their local agent and ClubstoHire will take care of the rest.
