About us

The Company

Invia is THE holiday expert for your most beautiful time and the largest pan-European OTA. With us, customers get perfectly tailored offers: trips from well-known tour operators, flights from more than 550 airlines, and rooms in more than 200,000 hotels worldwide. All of this is available at the best possible price – flexible, fast, and competent. That’s what we mean by efficiency.

Diversity is particularly important when it comes to the product range: whether it’s a package tour or a cruise, a holiday home or a club holiday, culture or wellness – the breadth of our offering is a key success factor for us.

The advantage for the customer is obvious: transparency through comparability – in terms of price and range. The customer can choose the right offer for them or have it put together by our competent service staff.
