Top Ten Saving Tips for Skiing - How to save £££s!
Affordable ski holidays do exist and affordable skiing is possible! Ski Collection specialises in 3 and 4 star self-catering ski apartments and hotels in the French Alps, offering you top quality ski accommodation but that doesn't mean you have to pay top prices. To help you save some pennies we have come up with ten ways to help you save money this winter and book a good value ski holiday allowing low cost skiing!
Tip 1 – Affordable Skiing with Ski Collection
We offer a carefully selected range of high quality ski accommodation and we are confident you are getting value for money when you book your holiday with us. If you think you have found the identical holiday elsewhere for less, ask our team of ski holiday experts to talk you through our quote, to compare like for like.
Tip 2 – Ski apartments + self-catering = Affordable ski holidays
Booking self-catering ski accommodation will cost a lot less than catered chalets or hotels and is a great way to holiday with friends, family or as a couple. Self-catering offers total flexibility, convenience and gives you complete control over your holiday. Self-catering ski holidays are fantastic options for not only families with young children, but also large groups and those that may have special dietary needs.
Stock up in a supermarket in a larger town before you get to the slopes, and you'll save too. Prices are per apartment not per person so there are no under occupancy charges, just choose an apartment size that suits your party.
Tip 3 – Ski in a group to get good value ski holidays
Booking a large apartment for a group of friends or family means you'll be splitting the apartment cost between more people, making your ski holiday more affordable.
The cost of a week's accommodation can be as little as £165 per person.
See our Go Large for Groups page for more details on good value ski holidays.
Tip 4 – Ski in resorts off the beaten track and make ski savings
Choose to ski in a resort you may consider to be off the beaten track and enjoy excellent value for money, unique character and intimate charm.
Tip 5 – Ski Offers = Ski holiday savings
By checking our various special offer pages for our current ski offers you could make some super ski savings.
See our Ski Deals page for a full selection of our different offers to help you make some great ski savings.
Tip 6 – Ski savings with our Self-Drive Packages create good value ski holidays
Driving is by far the most flexible option allowing you as much luggage as you can fit in, control over your own timetable and stops whenever you feel like it (just for a coffee or even overnight at one of our En-Route Hotels). We are able to offer you great value ski holiday packages due to our excellent relationships with the ferry companies and Eurotunnel. Plus, despite the exchange rate, diesel is still generally cheaper in France so buy your fuel at a hypermarket there and you will save even more! Ski holiday savings all round!
See our Self-Drive Package page for more details on good value ski holidays.
Tip 7 – Ski resorts by train = get closer to resort & save
Train is a good value alternative to flying and ideal for those who prefer to leave the car at home. We can arrange two train options: Direct Ski Train or Eurostar Beyond (with a change in Paris). Take the evening train both ways and you could benefit from 8 days skiing instead of just 6. A private taxi transfer can also be cheaper when taken from/to a train station rather than an airport, saving you even more money! We can of course pre-book these for you also (from Bourg Saint-Maurice, Moutiers and Aime train stations). Yet another way to create affordable skiing.
Tip 8 – Ski extras, pre-book them all for low cost skiing
We can pre-book all the ski extras you will need: Ski Insurance, Ski and Snowboard Equipment Hire, Ski Lift Passes, Ski School and Spa Treatments. By pre-booking you will save precious skiing time, benefit from keen prices that are not affected by the exchange rate, and you can relax knowing everything is arranged, ready for you and pre-paid. It’s not just the travel and accommodation that make for affordable ski holidays, all these ski extras can add up to more ski savings!
See our Ski Extras page for more details and information on special offers and low cost ski extras.
Tip 9 – Ski but spread the cost = Low cost skiing
Book early and spread the cost by paying in instalments that suit your budget and bank balance!
See our Ski Offers page for our current special offers.
