It all began in 1974 when 500 customers signed up for ski holidays with a house-party atmosphere. Jump forward over 40 years and Mark Warner has grown into one of the most highly regarded independent tour operators in the UK.
Still privately owned and inspired, the Mark Warner customer is at the heart of everything they do and of the 50,000 passengers who travel to a mix of ski and beach resort holidays each year, over 50% book again and again, delighted by the combination of great locations, relaxed surroundings, superb facilities (tennis, watersports, childcare) and brilliant, endlessly helpful staff and good company.
Mark Warner believe it’s also attention to the big things as well as the little ones that make our holidays stand out. In winter this means excellent snow-sure resorts and comfortable, well-located accommodation shared with like-minded people, but also details such as freshly baked cakes at afternoon tea and sociable après-ski gatherings in the cosy hotel bars. In summer it means idyllic Mediterranean beach resorts with superb tennis, watersports and cycling…But also the freedom to simply unwind by the pool.
They are also innovators, having introduced ski hosting in the 1970s and set up our famous childcare program in the 1980s. Indeed, if you’re travelling with children you can be confident that wherever you holiday with Mark Warner, its kids’ clubs and free evening drop-in services will leave every member of the family with memories to last a lifetime.
