HolidayCheck Group AG, Munich, is a leading European digital company for holidaymakers. Employing around 400 personnel, the company brings together under one roof HOLIDAYCHECK AG (operator of the hotel rating and travel booking portals of the same name and the rental car portal MIETWAGENCHECK) and WEBASSETS B.V. (operator of the ZOOVER hotel rating portals and the METEOVISTA/WEERONLINE weather portals). The HolidayCheck Group vision is to establish the most user-friendly company for holidaymakers in the world.
The Management Board of the company comprises Georg Hesse (CEO), Timo Salzsieder (COO) and Dr. Dirk Schmelzer (CFO). Hubert Burda Media is the majority shareholder in HolidayCheck Group AG. The company was formed following a decision by the Internet group TOMORROW FOCUS AG to focus on the travel sector and consequent disposal in 2015 of all its business models not associated with the travel segment. TOMORROW FOCUS AG changed its name to HolidayCheck Group AG in 2016.
