Austrian start-up company CheckYeti enters a strategic partnership with Europe’s biggest ski and snowboard rental provider Skiset
The successful start-up company for winter sports, CheckYeti (www.checkyeti.com), with 1.5 million users and counting, has entered a strategic partnership with Skiset, Europe’s biggest ski and snowboard rental provider. With over 6000 offers in over 500 ski resorts, CheckYeti is the leading booking platform for winter-sports activities. Each year, the French company Skiset offers high-quality equipment to over 2 million clients in over 800 rental shops all over 400 different locations in Europe and North America. Together, CheckYeti and Skiset cover 80% of the Alps and thus allow all winter-sports enthusiasts to easily choose their skiing holidays online and to book completely stress-free.
Thanks to winter-sports innovators CheckYeti and Skiset, booking a skiing holiday has never been easier. Their common goal is to help clients leave for the winter holidays completely stress-free through easier online-booking options. Courses, instructors, winter-sports activities and even the necessary equipment – all can be booked prior to the arrival at the ski resort. Consequently, queuing at the local ski rental shop as well as looking for the right ski school are now a thing of the past. Vacationists now can easily book their skiing holidays from home and thus make their first turns on the slopes already shortly after their arrival at the ski resort.
Product recommendations help clients in the booking process
Both providers’ products complement one another perfectly. Through CheckYeti’s and Skiset’s cooperation, fitting offers of the respective company are suggested to the client once the booking process is finished. If one was to book a ski course in St. Anton on CheckYeti.com, for example, an overview of Skiset’s best ski rental offers for this region would be given. It’s the same thing the other way around: clients booking their skiing equipment on Skiset.com, will be suggested the best ski schools and activities for their holidays by CheckYeti. “The cooperation with Skiset is one further highly important milestone for us”, Stefan Pinggera, co-founder of CheckYeti, delightedly states. “Over 70% of our clients booking ski courses require ski rental services – with a strong partner like Skiset, we feel completely ready for the upcoming winter season.”
Shared market coverage of 80% of the Alps
