Thousands of golfing holidaymakers who enjoyed playing a few rounds with new rental clubs last year, can now buy the clubs they used direct from the hire company who supplied them at ClubstoBuy.com.
Six years after making it affordable and convenient for travelling golfers to rent golf clubs abroad and avoid heavy airline charges, ClubstoHire.com is launching an after sales service to meet demand from satisfied customers who paid an average of €40 per week for a set in places such as the Algarve in Portugal to Cape Town in South Africa.
The No.1 golf club rental operator worldwide with 26 locations in 12 countries and almost 250,000 customers since it began, is now offering its used inventory at ClubstoBuy.com.
Used clubs from leading golf brands such as TaylorMade, Callaway, Mizuno and Wilson Staff are on sale at competitive prices to rival any club resale specialist. The site went live this week.
A customer survey conducted by ClubstoHire.com, the No.1 golf club rental operator worldwide, has found that over 96% of golfers plan to take two or more golfing holidays during the next two years.
And of the 2,300 travelling golfers who took part in the survey, two-thirds (66%) indicated that they intend to take as many as three or more golfing holidays over the same period. Most rental customers have a handicap of 18 and above.
The results point to continued growth in the golf travel industry and are welcomed by ClubstoHire as it looks to expand a service that has helped travelling golfers save an estimated £2.7m (€3.5m/$4m) in airline excess charges over the past five years. (more…)
