    • Essentials for families

      Here's a rundown of some general things to keep in mind if you're going skiing with family.

      What to wear

      • Warm, waterproof outerwear – snowsuit or salopettes and jacket.
      • Thermal clothes.
      • Goggles or sunglasses.
      • Sunblock with a high SPF – including a pocket-sized tube for ski school.
      • Two pairs of ski gloves each.
      • Ski socks – choose seamless for comfort.
      • Warm outdoor boots with a grip sole (not wellies).
      • Hat, scarf and gloves – fleece is ideal.
      • Ski helmet – if your child is skiing, you can book one for hire before you arrive in resort.

      What to pack

      • Indoor shoes or slippers.
      • Bottles and feeds – bibs and feeder cups.
      • Specialised baby food items, including formula milk.
      • Nappies, wipes and nappy cream.
      • Aqua nappies and swimsuit (if you're somewhere with a pool).
      • Listening device and UK-to-overseas plug adapter.
      • Small selection of toys and a comforter.

      In most resorts, you can buy nappies, jars of food and formula milk from supermarkets or chemists. But if your child prefers specific brands or if you want organic baby food and snacks, then it's worth bringing those with you.

      Extra touches for your family ski holiday

      To make sure things run smoothly while you're on holiday, our teams in resort can sort out some extra bits for you. Some of these need to be booked before you arrive in resort so they're ready and waiting for you.

      • Travel cots with sheets and a blanket are available – just make sure you book these before you arrive in resort.
      • Cots and linen in independent hotels are available for an extra charge. Just ask our sales centre for more information.
      • Free car seats are included when you book private transfer but remember to include infants in the total number of seats required. Car seats can't be used on coaches and if you'd rather bring your own, just let us know when you're booking.

      Also, don't forget infants (under 2 years) have a luggage allowance of 10 kg on all Thomson Airways flights.

Ratings

With all the various national tourist boards applying widely varying criteria to hotel ratings, the whole question of international hotel grades has become confused. We have therefore applied our own 'rating', representing the general standards of that country in order that fairer comparisons can be made.

Please note: rating may differ from the official star rating of the local tourist board. Our classifications take into account not only the basic facilities, but also the location, leisure facilities, general character and atmosphere of the hotel, as well as customer feedback. Chalet ratings give comparisons with other chalets but do not provide like for like comparisons with the ratings of full service hotels.

Your package price and availability

Our website's prices and flight, accommodation and room availability are updated every morning. To calculate average price per person, applicable discounts are subtracted from your total cost, which is then divided by the number of adults and children (excluding infants). A full price breakdown can be viewed on the payment page.

In some circumstances, prices and availability may update during the day so you may find price/availability differences later in the booking process.

This is usually due to high demand for the selected holiday. Should you have any issues with this, please contact us or see here for more information.

Bookings made by credit card incur a fee of 2%. Debit cards are free. More information.
