Ski Drive Package: Eurotunnel & Ferry
How do I get to the Alps for my ski holiday?
Ski Collection offers Eurotunnel inclusive packages with a free FlexiPlus upgrade on most dates. If you prefer, you can also book a ferry for your self-drive ski holiday (or if you're organising your own travel then we can book just your accommodation). Find out more about our travel options and the benefits of driving to the French Alps below.
Find out about what you need to drive in France. As a positive consequence of Brexit, Duty-Free is back. Travelling by Eurotunnel or ferry will allow you to stock up at bargain prices. You could even buy on the way out for consumption during your ski holiday and then again on the way back! Current per-person allowances for over 17s can be found on the gov.uk website.
Why fly when you can drive!
Driving to the Alps is by far the most flexible option; you are in control of your own timetable, you can take as much luggage as you need (including ski equipment at no extra charge) and stop en-route as and when you choose (see our selection of en-route hotels). Having a car in resort also means you can visit other nearby ski areas.
Driving to the Alps also represents fantastic value for money - we've negotiated great prices with Eurotunnel and the ferry companies. Our Eurotunnel inclusive packages even offer a free FlexiPlus upgrade at most dates!
Here are just some of the reasons to choose a self-drive ski holiday:
- Flexibility - be in control of your own timetable.
- Take as much luggage as you need (including sport and leisure equipment at no extra charge). This is also ideal for families that tend to come with a lot more stuff!
- Stop en route as and when you choose. Make the journey a part of the holiday, maybe visit a little vineyard on the way through Burgundy?
- Make use of the car while in the resort - explore a nearby resort.
- A self-drive ski holiday offers excellent value for money - here at Ski Collection we have negotiated great prices with the ferry companies and Eurotunnel so you can rest assured that you are getting exceptional value.
For independent travellers, we can offer accommodation-only bookings. Most of our resorts are within reach of international airports - Geneva, Grenoble, Chambery, Lyon or Turin (see our airlines and car hire pages).
Miss the queues at the toll plazas and arrive at the ski resort first... Book Emovis!
Emovis has extended its Liber-t automatic toll payment service to UK motorists. To use the service all you need to do is register online and they will send you a small electronic transponder (or tag) that you attach to your windscreen just behind the rear-view mirror. As you approach the barriers, a device by the barrier will read your transponder (or tag), securely extract your unique reference and then automatically open the barrier without you having to stop. So, if you want to skip the queues sign up for a liber-t tag with Emovis.
Snowchains (to buy or hire)
The weather in the mountains can be unpredictable and snow chains are a must when driving on mountain roads. We've arranged a special discount for Ski Collection clients with Polar Snowchains. So if you're looking to buy or hire snow chains, ask us for details when you book your holiday.
