What INTOSOL does
INTOSOL Holdings PLC (LON:INTO) is an international luxury travel company listed on the main board of the London Stock Exchange.
The firm specialises in bespoke holidays and holds over 3,500 hotel and agency contracts around the world.
The company’s technology, VIRTOSOL, is used by its travel consultants to allow customers to preview their trips through interactive videos.
INTOSOL also manages a portfolio of boutique luxury hotels and villas through its SOUL Private Collection.
What it owns
The firm’s SOUL Private Collection is mostly located in South Africa, where it leases and manages the Penthouse on Beach, SOUL Llandudno, SOUL Rainbow’s End and SOUL on the Heads properties.
Oceans Wilderness, a nine-room, high-end boutique hotel located in the picturesque Garden Route area of South Africa, is the company’s first fully owned property, while it also owns a site to build a safari lodge in the Leadwood Big Game Estate, a 5,500-hectare wildlife reserve in the north-east of the country.
In March, the company appointed Nigel Fitzpatrick as Chief Financial Officer following Hans Bischoff becoming Independent non-executive chairman in February.
Commenting on the group’s first half, chief executive Rainer Spekowius said: “Our growth strategy is underpinned by strong market fundamentals for high-end tourism, with research showing, that luxury travel is growing twice as fast as the overall market.
“With a portfolio of high-end, boutique hotels, we are well-positioned to take advantage of this”
