Company profile

The Swiss holiday fund Reka is a modern non-profit organisation, and it is one of the most important tourist companies in Switzerland. With its business areas dedicated to holidays and money, it runs a unique enterprise that enjoys a high level of credibility in the economic and tourist sector. The leisure-time monetary system with well-known “Reka cheques” has grown continually for years. With 1,200 holiday homes, including its family holiday villages, Reka is the second-largest provider on the Swiss holiday home market. In economic terms, Reka develops and grows organically and acts in a financially responsible manner. Instead of distributing dividends, Reka invests them in its corporate purpose revolving around social tourism. Reka handles ecological resources responsibly by promoting mild forms of leisure and tourist activity, by continually optimising its own holiday facilities in terms of environmental goals and by consistently implementing new projects in line with the best ecological state of technology.

Measures that have already been implemented

Renewing window façades at Reka’s holiday village in Sörenberg

The window façades at Reka’s holiday village in Sörenberg were replaced in the first stage of the first measure in autumn of 2017. The second and third stages will take place in 2018/2019. The new windows have insulated glass as per the currently valid standards. In addition to increasing comfort and safety, they reduce heat loss drastically, thus making a tangible contribution to an ecologically sustainable holiday village.
