Corporate history of Interhome

The year 2022 goes down as a record year in the 57-year history of Interhome Group – with 9 million overnight stays and a turnover of CHF 371.0 million. Emphasis is on the ongoing expansion of the network of local service offices, which guarantee optimum support and comprehensive services for customers and homeowners directly in the destination. Workation, the combination of work and holidays, is integrated as a new feature and the holiday accommodation suitable for this purpose is categorised accordingly. Other central topics are digitalisation and the move towards being a pioneer for sustainable holiday home tourism. Various climate protection projects are launched, international sustainability teams are created and the UN World Tourism Organization’s “Glasgow Declaration on Climate Action in Tourism” is signed.

The year 2021 is marked by the standardisation and streamlining of internal processes for the future. As part of this change, going forward, HHD AG decides to operate under the name Interhome Group. For direct customers, Interhome Group will continue to use the Interchalet brand in Germany and the Interhome brand in Switzerland and the other European countries.

Interhome and its sister company Interchalet are now jointly managed as "HHD AG". The names Interhome and Interchalet will continue to act as brands in the travel industry. In addition, Jörg Herrmann will take over the management of HHD AG as CEO.

Interhome achieved a further rise in guest figures: all in all, 730,000 guests stayed at an Interhome holiday apartment or holiday home.

Interhome and sister company Inter Chalet move closer together at management level and synergies are better exploited. Koni Iten retires and Thomas Stirnimann, CEO Hotelplan Group, takes over CEO duties until further notice. Interhome's guest figures see a 5% increase to 695,000.

Interhome maintains its successful course. For the first time in its history, the company matches more than 660,000 holidaymakers with their ideal holiday home. Invoiced turnover rises to CHF 186.6 million.

Interhome celebrates its 50 year anniversary. Another successful year confirms the new course of 2014.
