Five Reasons to Book Your Ski Holiday Early


Whether you’re aiming for a peak date, fixed on a specific resort, looking for nursery places, or just keen to shave a little off the cost of your Alpine getaway, there are plenty of good reasons to book your ski holiday early.

With chalets and hotels already on sale for the 2019/20 ski season, here are five good reasons to get the ball rolling on your ski holiday research in advance.

1. Make the most of the low-season deals

With tantalising offers such as free places, early-booking savings, 2-4-1 lift passes and increased group discounts up for grabs, booking your ski holiday early can shave hundreds of pounds off the cost of your ski trip.

With a little forethought, you can gather your group of friends or family and make savings which would be unheard of later down the line. We’re now in the middle of the winter ski season and the team here at Interactive Resorts are already helping keen skiers to bag a bargain ski deal for the 2018/19 season.

2. Take your pick of peak-date chalets

The popular departure dates of Christmas, New Year, the February half term and Easter see families across the country escaping to the slopes. Demand is high and the prices reflect that, but if you’re keen to experience the Alps during the festive season or you’re restricted to school holiday dates, early booking is often the best approach.

Reserving your 2017/18 ski holiday now means you can take your pick from the accommodation options and ski deals in the destinations of most interest, without having to compromise.

Book in advance to ski and save on alpine adventure for next winter.

3. Get the flight path you want

If you live near London, finding charter flights to match your chalet package is usually a breeze. But for skiers and boarders looking to travel from cities like Manchester, Bristol, Birmingham, Southampton or Glasgow, the number of flights is more limited. If you want to find the best chalet option with the most convenient flights for your group, getting booked in early is the best approach.

4. Availability in your first-choice ski school or nursery

Whether you’re a parent looking into in-resort childcare for the kids, or a group of pals with a couple of nervous beginners to consider, nursery and ski school places are important factors for many snow-lovers heading to the Alps.

Late-bookers on peak dates and in the last-minute market do often find places in nurseries and ski lessons get tight, so why not get in there early and book the services you’ll need?

5. Pay your deposit and save for your holiday

Ski holiday booking deposits do vary, but £150pp is a good guideline on how much to pay to secure the property of your choice. Savvy early-bookers can lay down their deposit in advance, then pay the holiday off in increments and ultimately spread the cost.

Everybody loves the feeling of getting a good deal, and paying this way can add to that important value-for-money feel. Plus, it also gives you longer to look forward to your big trip!
