House of Travel Ski has been recognised as one of the best ski travel agents in the world at the World Ski Awards in Austria.

Named as one of 17 finalists for the title of World’s Best Ski Travel Agent 2015, House of Travel Ski was up against some of the most established European and North American ski travel agencies in the world.

Ski Manager Sarah Headifen says being a finalist is an amazing achievement for the team that was completely unexpected.

"We are absolutely blown away. House of Travel Ski is only one year old, so being recognised at a global level this year is unheard of - it’s extremely special," she says.

"We love what we do, so acknowledgement at any level is really the icing on the cake of being able to spend every day creating amazing ski travel experiences."

Ms Headifen says being recognised for their work globally is crucial to gaining credibility as a new player in the ski market.

"Winning an award at this level is really important for giving our customers and agents confidence in knowing they are dealing with one of the best ski travel agents in the world," she says.

"We think it is our first-hand experience that makes us stand out from others in the market. Our staff have lived and worked in a number of ski resorts all over the world, which gives our customers and agents first-hand knowledge when it comes to booking ski holidays.

"Our customers are what make this job for us - we take a genuine interest in our customers’ snow holidays and get real pleasure from creating the perfect experience for them."

House of Travel Ski is based in Parnell, Auckland and helps customers across New Zealand create amazing ski experiences. House of Travel Ski is part of House of Travel, New Zealand’s largest owned and operated retail travel company. House of Travel has 73 stores throughout New Zealand, from Kerikeri in the north to Invercargill in the south.
