Skiing is expensive. There’s no getting around it, we all just have to accept it. However, there are ways to limit this expense, and as someone who’s worked in ski resorts and within the UK ski industry for a number of years, this is my insider’s guide on how to save when booking a ski trip!
When to book
When you book your ski holiday will hugely affect the price you pay and the deal you get. My advice:
Book early – operators love to get bookings in early and so offer some great early booking discounts and other incentives like buy-one-get-one-free lift passes and 2-4-1 ski hire. These usually expire during the late summer, so if you know what you want, get it booked in spring or early summer for the following season. This is particularly important if you want peak dates at achievable prices– amazing value all-inclusive offers which apply at New Year and February half term expire in July! If you are date or resort specific, booking early will ensure you get what you want at a reasonable price. Read More
