Top 7 reasons to book your ski holiday early

Are your annual cravings for a winter getaway kicking in? There are loads of advantages to booking early – here are just a few…

1. Choose from more accommodations

Whether you’re looking for an apartment, hotel or one of our high-end chalets, there’s much more choice when you start looking early. And if you’re getting the family together you can opt for an entire chalet – just get in quick to make sure you can book the whole thing.

2. Get a wider choice of dates

When you book early, it’s more likely that your dates will be available for the accommodation you want. This comes in handy if you’re thinking of taking the kids skiing during school holidays, when our holidays are more popular.

3. Take advantage of our launch offers

Whenever we put a new season on sale, we love to celebrate with some brilliant deals – so if you book early, you could snap up a saving on things like lift passes, childcare or even brand new resorts.

4. Save money in North America with early booking offers

If you’re looking to go a little further afield, you can find some great deals in Canada and the USA. Flights, hotel rooms and lift passes work on a tiered system there, so the earlier you book, the bigger the discount. These deals phase out through May/June and up to mid-November, by which point you’ll be paying full price. So plan smart, book as early as possible, and you’ll usually pay less.

5. Only pay the deposit

With only the deposit to pay up front, booking early lets you spread the cost of your ski holiday. Plan ahead and you’ll have plenty of time to pay off your trip.

6. Brush up on your skills

Booking your ski holiday now means  you’ll have loads of time to get slope-ready. Visit an indoor snow centre and learn the basics or practise your skills before you hit the mountain.

7. Get excited

After it’s all booked, the rest is up to us. Start your countdown and, in the meantime, take a look at our piste maps and resort info online. You’ll soon be daydreaming about your next mountain getaway.
